At the end of February, Bloomberg released completely unexpected news for the video game industry. Apparently, in 2023 we will not have a new Call of Duty, so Activision will abort the franchise’s annual launch for the first time in two decades. However, this does not mean that Call of Duty will lose relevance next year. Everything points to the fact that Modern Warfare 2supported by an ambitious content strategy will fill this gap.

Call of Duty in 2023 and what Activision needs to generate revenue from its most popular franchisedon’t be surprised if they are sold as DLC premium. In fact, they may have been part of a campaign expansion – as Schreier himself hints.
