Thanks to its new game engine, the “later this year” is revealed with tension, the continuation of Call of Duty Warzone, which is revealed “later this year”, has confirmed Activision Blizzard.
In its earnings report for the first quarter of 2022, Activision Blizzard says that net income declined in the first quarter of the company compared to the same quarter of the previous year and declined from $ 2.28 billion in 2021 to 1.77 billion US dollars in 2022 are. The publisher also reports this part of this decline was due to “lower results” for the Call of Duty franchise. This includes the general gaming commitment in Warzone compared to the first quarter of last year and the sales of Call of Duty Vanguard are lower than that of the previous title of the main series, Black Ops Cold was. This combination has led to less net searches in the entire Call of Duty Franchise on both the PC and the console.
Although this ensures disappointing reading, Activision seems to be optimistic about the future of the franchise. The game of the main series of 2022 will be a continuation of Modern Warfare of 2019, and a complete unveiling of Warzone 2, the continuation of the free-to-play battle-royale, will also take place later this year, has confirmed Activision.
“The development of this year’s premium and warzone experiences under the direction of Infinity Ward is progressing very well.” Activision says. “This year’s Call of Duty is a continuation of Modern Warfare from 2019, the most successful call of duty title so far, and will be the most advanced experience in franchise history.
“The new free Warzone experience, which was developed in addition to the premium game from the ground up new, offers groundbreaking innovations that will be revealed later this year.”
This reflects the feelings of Activision from the first confirmation that a continuation of warzone is being developed in which the company said that players should expect “a massive further development” of the Battle-Royal Experience.
Although Activision has not yet revealed, which will be one of the “groundbreaking innovations” of Warzone 2, the game will probably be equipped with all the graphic upgrades and functions that are expected from games that appear on the current console generation.
The next season of Warzone, Season 3, will arrive later this week, which will also include the expected Warzone Godzilla event.
