This year's Call of Duty title is rumoured to be in development by the creators of Call of Duty WW2 and Advanced Warfare - Sledgehammer Games. Additionally, six support studios are also helping on the development.
Activision already confirmed that we are getting another Call of Duty game later this year to no one's surprise but the details about this upcoming title are yet to be officially revealed. We know that the game should launch sometime during Holidays 2021, a usual release window for Call of Duty games.
Rumours regarding the game state that it could be another modern warfare setting (not a game set in the Modern Warfare series) of some sort and some reputable leakers suggested that Sledgehammer Games, the studio that brought us Call of Duty WW2 and Advanced Warfare could be helming the project.
Today, we have a couple of new details about the studios that are involved with this year's Call of Duty game. According to a known and trusted Call of Duty leaker ModernWarzone, Sledgehammer Games are indeed the studio helming the next Call of Duty.
ModernWarzone posted a logo of Sledgehammer Games on his official Twitter, to which another reliable leaker Okami responded with the following tweet: "Plus like 6 support studios."
Of course, we suggest you take the information with a grain of salt since it's not officially confirmed but it's rather interesting that so many devs are working on the game. This suggests that Call of Duty 2021 is perhaps behind the scheduled and Activision want to speed up the development, which is why they are throwing so many support studios at the game if the leakers are indeed correct.
All in all, guess we will just have to wait and see what this next Call of Duty actually is and who is behind the project. As always with Call of Duty games, expect to hear more in Spring/Summer.
