Activision have officially announced that Sledgehammer Games are developing this year's Call of Duty title. They also added that the game is being built for next-gen consoles and PC.

For several months now, rumours stated that this year's Call of Duty title is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and will be set during WW2. Today, during their earnings call, Activision confirmed that Sledgehammer Games are indeed developing the next Call of Duty game.

Activision also revealed that Call of Duty 2021 is being developed for next-gen consoles and PC. The publisher did not mention the last-gen consoles but it's safe to expect that the game will also launch on PS4 and Xbox One.

Additionally, it's been confirmed that Call of Duty 2021 will have a single-player campaign, multiplayer and co-op game modes. Just like Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, the next title will also integrate Warzone.

"In particular, we are very excited for this year's premium Call of Duty release. Development is being led by Sledgehammer Games and the game is looking great and on track for its fall release," said Activision Blizzard Chief Operating Officer.

"This is a built for next generation experience with stunning visuals across campaign, multiplayer and co-operative modes of play, designed to both integrate with and enhance the existing COD ecosystem. We look forward to sharing more details with the community soon."
