What's Next for Call of Duty?

The popular First Person Shooter, Call of Duty, has been a massive success since it's debut of Warzone. From the streets of Verdansk, to the Island of Caldera, to the Prison Block of Alcatraz, players have seen it all. For better, and worse.

Through massive glitches, cheaters, and bugs, the game has both been loved (and hated) by fans alike. Although, it hasn't been without it's glory. One thing that always manages to stay the same, is that Warzone is played daily by millions.

That has fans wondering "What next?" There has been much speculation on what will be the future of the series. In a recent blog post on the Call of Duty website itself, they have confirmed that Call of Duty 2022 will be a direct sequel to Infinity Ward's 2019 Modern Warfare. But that's not all.

The blog post also noted that the game will run on a brand new engine that they have been working on for years. It was also stated that Warzone will move over to this new engine, thus bringing a brand new experience to players of all sorts. The post came very subtly at the bottom of a blog post on their Official Website about the rework of Rebirth Island. It has since been edited and mentions of the future of COD now have been taken out. Perhaps they revealed too much?

Speculations say that 2022's Call of Duty would be called Modern Warfare 2, but wouldn't directly relate to 2009's Modern Warfare 2.

With Treyarch's Black Ops Cold War and Sledgehammer's Vanguard games on the way out, players have noted how the last 2 entries of the franchise have been lackluster. Riddled with bugs and cheaters, it's about time fresh air has been breathed into the series.

Will Infinity Ward's 2022 Call of Duty save the franchise and relieve players of their woes of hackers and frustration? Only time will tell.

Modern Warfare 2019 was revered by fans. With an explosive gameplay, complex story telling, and debut of Warzone, it was a truly fantastic entry into the series. We can only hope to see what Infinity Ward has in store for us next.

Very little information has been released but from what we know, we can hope to see a bombastic entry into the franchise this year.

Call of Duty has not yet officially released a title for this year, nor has there been a release date. Keep your eyes open, soldier. Stay Frosty.
