Rumor: 2023 will be the first year without a Call of Duty

We are now so used to seeing the constant annual return of certain video game series, that it seems unthinkable a change of course in this sense. Yet it seems to be just what's happening with Call of Duty, at least according to Bloomberg's well-informed Jason Schreier.

Schreier spoke to sources familiar with the facts, who explained that Activision has decided to postpone the 2023 Call of Duty, developed by Treyarch, by releasing it the following year. If confirmed, next year will be the first in nearly twenty years without a new CoD.

According to the journalist's sources, Activision realized that the continuous release of new games in the series is causing a drop in interest from players, and it was therefore decided to delay the releases more. This will also have the positive effect, we add, of giving more development time to the teams to release more interesting and innovative titles.

Schreier explains that this decision has nothing to do with the acquisition by Microsoft, and that Activision is working on new titles to fill the void that the absence of CoD will create in the fall of 2023. In the meantime, of course, CoD Warzone will continue to be supported with new content throughout the next year and beyond.

For now this is unofficial news, so take it as such: we will probably have to wait at least a year to find out if they are true or not.
