Despite a potentially compromising breach of Activision’s internal plans for the Call of Duty rollout, the rumors are true. Call of Duty is coming back with a brand new game that will be a spinoff of the popular Modern Warfare 2 which has since been re-released as an updated version.
In early game rumors fans weren’t sure what to expect from Activision because, after the updated MW2 drop and Warzone 2.0, it was unclear what the franchise would look like moving forward. Despite record-breaking sales and user activity on the two titles mentioned, developers have given little detail as to what the new game will look like but it is confirmed that the storyline from MW2, the most popular in the multi-series franchise, will be getting the attention.
Call Of Duty: Code Name Jupiter
In the most recent leak, documents containing multiple dates and time schedules along with the name ‘Jupiter’ were believed to be about the new game’s pending release. Unfortunately, we can’t rely on accurate time stamps as they more than likely have changed with an update to Activision security. Well-known COD hacker Tom Henderson is telling fans to prep for a Fall release.
What To Expect
As far as being a stand-alone connection to the MW franchise, we know a few insider details about the next game. Sledgehammer games will play a big part in development, and there are expected to be two Beta weeks, an Early Access campaign period, revamped older maps, old-gen console compatibility, and a standard marketing strategy like previous releases. All of the action will begin in early October.
The title release date is still unconfirmed but it’s exciting either way. With the outstanding positive response to MW2 and Warzone 2.0, it’s starting to feel like the COD wave is coming back. Let’s hope they keep the momentum up and take over the gaming industry as they have in the past, with fans camping out, downloading every free beta or DLC they could find, and the servers full across all platforms.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 are available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
