According to the recent rumours, Activision may decide to release their two upcoming Call of Duty games on last-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Call of Duty games may not be exclusive to next-gen consoles for at least two more years according to reliable industry insider Tom Henderson. Apparently, Activision have plans to release both Call of Duty WWII Vanguard and Call of Duty 2022 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.
"WW2 Vanguard is going to be held back so bad by previous generation consoles, and from my understanding, they are planning previous gen for both Vanguard and IW's next title," Henderson tweeted.
To be fair, this is not surprising at all since the majority of players are still on last-gen due to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S stock issues and industry analysts predict that such shortages could continue well into 2022, so Activision's decision, if real, certainly makes sense.
At the moment, Activision are yet to officially announce this year's Call of Duty title, which is reportedly set during WW2. The game which should be coming after that is reportedly developed by Infinity Ward and it's another Modern Warfare title.
Call of Duty's biggest rival - Battlefield - is also returning this year after two years of break. The early leaks reveal that this could be a game-changer for the franchise and according to rumours, Battlefield 2021 could be exclusive to new consoles - PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
This is just speculation at the moment, so take it with a grain of salt until everything is confirmed by official channels.
