A new rumor has it that Sledgehammer Games is working on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2, which will follow Call of Duty: Vanguard. The release of the game should take place in 2025, at least according to the new cadence of the franchise.
The CharlieIntel collective, always quite informed about the Call of Duty franchise, reports that they have heard from their sources that there is no Advanced Warfare 2 currently in development at Sledgehammer Games, and that therefore today’s rumors would be unfounded.
“I have heard that there is no Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 in development at Sledgehammer Games, despite today’s rumors,” reads a CharlieIntel post. “It is not yet perfectly clear what the team is working on.”
The original news follows.
The upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could therefore be the first title premium of the series to have to last two years on the market, given that in 2023 there should be no new launch. Treyarch’s new Call of Duty should be released in 2024, perhaps a Black Ops. So the first useful year for Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty is 2025, even if, if the new cadence is confirmed, we risk seeing it in 2026.
To reveal the possible processing of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 was the insider RalphsValve on Whatifgaming, usually very reliable with the news regarding the Activision Blizzard series.
The first Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was also Sledgehammer’s first COD. Equipped with a futuristic setting, it had certainly interesting elements, which however did not convince the players very much, especially those more anchored to the traditional formula.
In the past Sledgehammer had talked about wanting to create a new mineseries starting from Vanguard, but the failure of the game could have made the developers and publisher change their minds, bringing Advanced Warfare back into vogue, which moreover could also have an important role in introducing some variety in Call of Duty: Warzone 2, bringing science fiction to play.
