Earlier than Black Ops Chilly Warfare arrives, we could have already got our first trace of subsequent yr’s Name of Responsibility setting as a outstanding leaker has teased a brand new Fashionable Warfare sequel.
Whereas the Name of Responsibility franchise has 17 mainline entries protecting a wide selection of timelines, two names stand out as essentially the most iconic. Each the Black Ops sequence and the Fashionable Warfare sequence have seen essentially the most iterations through the years.
Treyarch has already launched 4 titles within the Black Ops sequence with Chilly Warfare simply weeks away. In the meantime, Infinity Ward has 4 entries within the Fashionable Warfare sequence, the unique trilogy together with 2019’s reboot. Now, it appears as if a fifth may be on the best way with Infinity Ward on the helm.
Sledgehammer Video games and Raven Software program will reportedly be taking a again seat. As an alternative of the everyday three-year growth cycle, Infinity Ward has simply two-years to work with. We’re nonetheless 12 months off from 2021’s thriller launch, however we could have already got our first particulars on subsequent yr’s title.
Infinity WardCould Worth’s story proceed in 2021’s Name of Responsibility?
“It’s trying like CoD for 2021 is one other Fashionable Warfare title of some form,” outstanding leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a complete lot is understood past that key element, although the setting for the subsequent launch seems to be locked in.
“Understandably not a number of data as of but, however it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Fashionable Warfare’s onerous reboot with 2019’s launch, might a brand new sequel be the subsequent step? This may primarily bypass the unique Fashionable Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for one more equivalent title.
To keep away from much more confusion, there’s an excellent probability the title is somewhat completely different, much like how Black Ops added Chilly Warfare to the title for 2020’s drop, regardless of it being a direct observe as much as Black Ops 1. So count on to see Fashionable Warfare: ‘one thing one thing’ because the seemingly 2021 title.
This might see a direct continuation from the place 2019’s sport left off. John Worth is seeking to assemble a group of traditional characters to place a cease to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player marketing campaign to the punch, this might be our goal in 2021’s launch.
I hate to be “that man” earlier than BOCW has launched, however it’s trying like CoD for 2021 is one other Fashionable Warfare title of some form. Understandably not a number of data as of but, however it’s a modern-day setting. Fashionable Warfare 2 looks like the one logical subsequent step?

Whereas this facet is only hypothesis, the leaker additionally thought-about the unique Fashionable Warfare 2 being bundled in. No completely different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Fashionable Warfare remastered in 2016.
We’re nonetheless months away from any official data on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Chilly Warfare is the main focus for Activision. Something concerning subsequent yr’s sport can be saved below wraps for fairly a while but.
