Activision Reaffirms a “Full Premium Call of Duty Release” For 2023
Activision has once again reaffirmed during its latest financial call that the publisher will be releasing a “full annual premium release” in the Call of Duty franchise in 2023.
It was reported last year by Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier that Call of Duty will be skipping its 2023 release by Treyarch Games. During Activision’s last financial call, however, the publisher announced that it will be launching a new premium title this year. Soon after, Schreier responded to Activision’s statements by saying that Call of Duty 2023 will be developed by Sledgehammer Games and is year two of Modern Warfare 2.
Insider Gaming was able to corroborate with its own sources at the time, that it was indeed the case.
Confusion as to what exactly a “premium title” entails has arisen because past Activision earnings calls have named “premium” titles as $70 games, whereas a year two of DLC would suggest something different.
Unfortunately though, and if true, Activision’s “premium title” wording could suggest that this Modern Warfare 2 year 2 will actually cost $70, rather than the likes of Zombie Chronicles’ $29.99 price tag.
Activision’s latest statement on this year’s Call of Duty title state: “Across the Call of Duty franchise, our teams are working to amplify the success of the fourth quarter, with 2023 plans including even more engaging live services across platforms and the next full annual premium release in the blockbuster series.”
Are you looking forward to another year of Modern Warfare 2?
