Activision have decided to delay the Call of Duty game planned for 2023 making it the first year without main Call of Duty game since 2005.

Call of Duty will skip a yearly release for the first time in two decades. The planned 2023 game has been internally delayed by Activision to 2024 according to reports.

This year's game - Call of Duty Modern Warfare II - is still on schedule to release later this year. It won't be affected by the delay but it's safe to say that it will be the most supported Call of Duty game of all time, in terms of post-launch content.

The reports  state that Activision made this decision independent of Microsoft, which is not unusual since Microsoft still don't own Activision. The acquisition is expected to close in the coming months, though. 

Anyway, the details about Call of Duty 2023 are pretty scarce at the moment. We don't know what kind of game this was or which studio are leading the development.

Some rumours suggested Call of Duty 2023 is a new Black Ops title but Activision are yet to confirm that so take it with a grain of salt just like any other rumour or leak. 

At the moment, almost all internal Activision studios are working on Call of Duty games, even studios like Toys For Bob and Beenox, which is a darn shame. Hopefully, with Microsoft on the helm soon, these studios will get their creative freedom back so we get more unique and cool games, instead of yearly Call of Duty releases.
