Call of Duty’s 2025 release has already started to leak despite being a long way off. Here’s everything we know about CoD 2025 including the release window, multiplayer, campaign, and Zombies leaks.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has been adored by players thanks to the return of classic maps and fan-favorite mechanics, but players are still desperate to see what Treyarch have in store for CoD 2024.

Even though we don’t have any official information about what’s set to be the next Black Ops, the Call of Duty 2025 rumor mill has started.

Here’s everything we know about Call of Duty 2025 so far including the release window and leaks surrounding multiplayer, campaign, and Zombies.

When will Call of Duty 2025 release?

Call of Duty 2025 should arrive in late October/early November 2025.

Every Call of Duty game has been released on a Friday around this time, and we can look back at the last few years for an indication:

  • Modern Warfare 3 – November 10, 2023
  • Modern Warfare 2 – October 28, 2022
  • Vanguard – November 5, 2021
  • Black Ops Cold War – November 13, 2020
  • Modern Warfare – October 25, 2019

What is Call of Duty 2025?

According to leaks from insider Tom Henderson, Call of Duty 2025 will be a direct sequel to Black Ops 2 (2012), taking place in 2030.

Call of Duty 2025 campaign leaks

On February 5, 2024, it was reported by Henderson that an open-world campaign would be coming to CoD 2024, and the same could be said for Call of Duty 2025’s campaign.

This could see Call of Duty shift from linear campaign missions to an open-world campaign style similar to the Far Cry franchise. The report mentions that the CoD 2025 campaign could bring several different biomes to explore.

While this information has yet to be confirmed, players will likely get their first look at this new campaign style with CoD 2024.

Call of Duty 2025 multiplayer leaks

Call of Duty 2025 is set to have a mix of brand-new maps and remastered fan favorites from Black Ops 2.

On top of that, the game is leaked to have another overhaul to movement, the Pick 10 Create-A-Class options return, and the Gunfight mode.

It’s said the game was originally set to bring remasters of all of Black Ops 2’s maps, but perhaps because of backlash to MW3, it will also have brand-new maps at launch. CoD 2025 was rumored to have all of Black Ops 3’s maps back in September.

It was called a “completely new game” which suggests it might not have the Carry Forward feature that would bring all of CoD 2024’s weapons and Operators over.

Call of Duty 2025 Zombies leaks

Call of Duty 2025 is set to feature round-based Zombies again. While Henderson’s report acknowledges that the plans could easily change, he said “it’s understood” that there will be another year of round-based Zombies.

CharlieIntel has also heard that round-based Zombies will return with Treyarch’s CoD 2024, which has also been reported by Windows Central.

Who is developing Call of Duty 2025?

There’s currently no information on who is developing Call of Duty 2025. While Sledgehammer Games are the most likely candidate, we’ll have to wait and see what Activision and Microsoft have in store.
