Activision Confirms new “Premium” Call of Duty in 2023
According to Activision’s financial report, the company has confirmed that a new premium Call of Duty will release in 2023.
According to the filings, Activision says “Activision is looking forward to building on its current momentum in 2023, with plans for next year including the most robust Call of Duty live operations to date”.
“The next full premium release in the blockbuster annual series, and even more engaging free-to-play experiences across platforms. “, it continued.
It was reported earlier this year by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier that Call of Duty will be skipping its 2023 release by Treyarch Games. Insider Gaming and reputable insiders have heard similar claims from sources, but Activision’s earnings report seems to contradict this.
Insider Gaming as well as various other insiders believe that Call of Duty 2023’s “premium” offering will consist of remastered maps from the 2009 original and a campaign DLC.
It’s also been previously reported that Call of Duty will be moving on from annual Call of Duty releases altogether.
Jason Schreier has also personally weighed in on the news on Twitter.
“Man lol you keep falling for the same PR language. It’s a continuation of Modern Warfare II. It’s called a full premium release because they’re probably going to market and sell it as a $70 game with new single- and multiplayer content. But it’s more MWII”, he said.
CharlieIntel, a Call of Duty veteran replied to Schreier with “Community’s expectation was Year 2, not a $70 pay gap. It’s basically going to be a new game, continuation of MWII, that you have to pay $70 for.”
