RalphsValve, a Call of Duty leaker has reported via whatifgaming that Sledgehammer Games will be releasing Advanced Warfare 2 in 2025.
Although Insider Gaming cannot yet corroborate these claims, however, it could make logical sense following a disappointing release of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Earlier this year, I reported via eXputer that Sledgehammer Games had begun producing its next Call of Duty title slated for a 2025 release, although details on the game were not presented at the time.
It’s already been reported that Sledgehammer Games wants to make two sequels to Vanguard, but its disappointing sales could have changed plans.
If true, Advanced Warfare 2 could present a new change to Warzone 2, with players potentially getting exo-suits for one year as the integration is implemented. How exactly that will work though, is anyone’s guess.
Sledgehammer Games’ Advanced Warfare was the first in the “exo-suit” era of Call of Duty and was a breath of fresh air for the franchise. Several more exo-suit titles later and the series once again returned to boots-on-the-ground combat.
Now, several more years on, the demand for an exo-suit-based Call of Duty has seemed to have grown, which is something Activision and its developers would have taken note of.
Advanced Warfare sold an estimated 21.76 million copies during its lifetime and although it’s not the most successful Call of Duty title, a sequel will admittingly do better than Vanguard 2.
As always, take leaks and rumors will a pinch of salt. Especially ones on titles that are years away. Activision will likely be acquired by Microsft during this time and everything could potentially change for the franchise.
UPDATE – CharlieIntel has stated that they have heard that Sledgehammer Games isn’t currently working on Advanced Warfare 2, despite today’s rumors stating it is.
