In a statement on February 3, Activision confirmed that the highly-anticipated CoD 2022 and Warzone 2 will be developed by Infinity Ward.
Infinity Ward have a long and storied history with the Call of Duty franchise after developing the legendary Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and it seems like they’re back for another iteration in 2022.
Infinity Ward last worked on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in 2019. Modern Warfare was a commercial success and Activision are looking to produce similar results with CoD 2022 after Vanguard has failed to meet sales expectations.
A recent Business Wire report of Activision’s 2021 financial results have revealed that Vanguard failed to meet expectations as far as sales go, “Call of Duty net bookings on console and PC declined year-over-year in the fourth quarter, reflecting lower premium sales for Call of Duty: Vanguard”.
This explains Activision’s decision to opt for Infinity Ward as the lead developer for both CoD 2022 and Warzone 2. The project is being touted as a highly ambitious focus on both premium offerings and free-to-play content with Warzone 2.
Long-time Call of Duty fans will be happy to see the future of the franchise in safe hands. 2022 is shaping up to be a vital year for Call of Duty and fans won’t have to wait much longer for new and exciting content.
This announcement doesn’t necessarily mean that the release window for these games has been moved up. Once we have more details concerning CoD 2022 and Warzone 2022 we’ll be sure to share that with you.
