The 2023 installment of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III did not meet players’ high expectations and was a big disappointment. Many believe that the lack of development time was a major factor in the final result. After this experience, players are concerned about the 2025 installment. According to journalist and insider Tom Henderson, the 2025 Call of Duty does not yet have a development studio assigned to it, even though it is scheduled for release in 20 months.
Henderson explained on Twitter that Sledgehammer Games was initially supposed to develop the 2025 installment, but they declined the offer because they did not want to be a “year 2 support studio.” High Moon Studios is a potential candidate, but Henderson believes that the 2025 game will ultimately be developed by Treyarch. It was previously reported that the 2026 and 2027 installments are being developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, respectively.
While some studios are working on future games, others are focusing on updating current installments. The Ricochet tool recently received a significant update to address cheaters, and plans for Season 2 and the arrival of new maps have been revealed for Modern Warfare III. In our review of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, we noted that “the seams are showing. The campaign feels like a spin-off of something much bigger, and the zombies don’t quite fit into the open world. The multiplayer is the that saves a product that should have remained in DLC.” Despite the disappointment of the 2023 installment, players are hopeful for the future of the Call of Duty franchise.
