Both this and next year's Call Of Duty titles will release on last-gen consoles as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, a reliable industry insider has suggested. Unfortunately, that might not be a good thing.
Call Of Duty 2021 is believed to be a new World War II shooter from Sledgehammer Games under the working title Call Of Duty: Vanguard. As you might have heard earlier this month, development on the upcoming FPS is reportedly a "disaster" right now. This is according to established leaker Tom Henderson, who has been providing a steady drip of information related to both Battlefield 6 and Call Of Duty: Vanguard.
"Vanguard... To put it simply, is a f*cking disaster," he said in a post on Twitter a few weeks ago. Now, Henderson has elaborated further. He believes one of the main things holding the new Call Of Duty back is that Activision and Slegedhammer are developing it for PlayStation 4/Xbox One alongside next-gen hardware. He believes Vanguard is going to be "held back so badly" by previous console generations.
To make matters worse, it sounds as if Call Of Duty 2022 - reportedly a sequel to Modern Warfare developed once again by Infinity Ward - will also be released as a cross-generational title.
A Modern Warfare sequel is a little further down the line, of course, and any plans Activision may or not have to release it on current and last-gen consoles could change between now and 2022. Even so, the very idea of it is bound to cause a little unrest among fans... especially since the majority of reports seem to suggest that the upcoming Battlefield 6 will skip last-gen consoles in an effort to deliver an entirely next-gen experience.
You have to imagine at a certain point that's going to be what most Call Of Duty fans want to see. If not in 2021, then definitely by 2022.
