Will Call of Duty Continue to be Released Annually?

Despite Microsoft buying Activision Blizzard King for nearly $70 billion (money that Redmond has to make back somewhere, and Game Pass subscriptions aren’t going to do much of that…), it seems that they’re not slowing down the pace of Call of Duty.


Some details about two upcoming Call of Duty episodes have surfaced on Twitter. No, we’re not talking about 2024 and 2025, but what makes things even more interesting is what Visceral has leaked about the IP that has been released every year for two decades without fail. According to reports, 2026 will see the release of Call of Duty from Infinity Ward. The project, codenamed Devilwood, will be a Ghosts (!) episode. Call of Duty: Ghosts was originally released in 2013 as a cross-gen title. Will it be a remake or will they continue the story somehow?

There will also be a Call of Duty in 2027, according to Visceral. The project, codenamed Anvil, is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and they intend to continue the Advanced Warfare series. This game was released in 2014. So they are so out of ideas that they are going to touch on older episodes to expand on them in some way? Because they’re making Call of Duty: Ghosts 2 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2, so again, it seems unlikely that Modern Warfare will make it to a fourth act.

Rumors suggest that the 2024 episode could be Call of Duty: Black Ops: Gulf War, and we can expect a Black Ops episode in 2025, set between the second and third episodes (rumored to be 2.5 and being developed by Raven Software). Interestingly, the schedule starting in 2024 has already been hinted at in a tweet from October 2023 (!!!), so we’re witnessing some pretty serious leaks.

None of this is official yet. But chances are that Microsoft will have to make a big decision regarding Call of Duty. Will it put the IP on Game Pass?
