Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 hasn’t even been released yet, but that certainly hasn’t stopped people speculating over the games that will follow it. We’ve already had rumors that the 2024 Call of Duty game will be Treyarch’s return to the Black Ops franchise. Now we’re being told that the 2025 installment will be from Sledgehammer Games and will be Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2 according to a new report.
What we know about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2
Sledgehammer Games is apparently aiming to move away from historical shooters and head firmly back into the future with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare 2, at least according to a report from WhatIfGaming. Apparently the lack of success from Call of Duty: Vanguard put paid to the idea that the team could expand on the story and characters of that game, so the team has gone back to the drawing board. The result is the decision to expand on the Advanced Warfare franchise instead.
The game is expected to be developed on the IW 9.0 engine and will be released in 2025, marking a return to the annual Call of Duty schedule. One thing to bear in mind, though, is that while the leaker has been accurate in the past, WhatIfGaming hasn’t mentioned any sources for these claims and we’re unsure of their origin, so take everything here with a pinch of salt.
