Documents provided to Insider Gaming from the Activision data breach from December 4, 2022, suggest that Call of Duty 2024, codenamed Cerberus, could be coming to past generation consoles.
Previous rumblings around the Call of Duty franchise have suggested that Call of Duty will finally be ending its past generation releases with Call of Duty 2023 which will be released later this year. Although Insider Gaming cannot dive deep into the information stated in the documents, references to Cerberus being on past-generation consoles can be found.
However, as mentioned in our last report of the data breach, it appears that some of the information that was publically released on Twitter has already changed. This suggests that although a past-generation version of Call of Duty 2024 was planned at one time, the references found could be outdated.
What adds a little credence to the potential of another past-generation game for Call of Duty though, is that Call of Duty now runs off the same engine, no matter which studio is developing it. Such a change, which was implemented for COD 2.0 is to make the development cycle more seamless across studios.
Previous leaks by dataminer RealityUK, shared some images of Call of Duty 2024 in 2022. The images were obtained via Call of Duty warzone mobile, with one image featuring the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, a retired American attack aircraft introduced in October 1983.
With Nintendo recently signing a 10-year deal with Microsoft to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms, maybe Call of Duty needs a past-generation console version moving forward. Whatever the case may be, we’ll continue to update on Project Cerberus as we hear more.
