During a quarterly conference call, Activision confirmed that Sledgehammer Games will be developing the new 2021 Call of Duty. According to the publisher, the game is being created with an eye on the next generation and has excellent graphics, taking advantage of modern consoles. The release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is not specified, but it is possible that a stripped-down version will appear on outdated platforms, as is the case with Black Ops 3.
During the conversation, the co-op mode was also noted, but the details are still unknown. This can be like an opportunity to go through a campaign with a friend, a zombie mode, or some separate joint missions. In addition, Activision announced that the new part of the series will be integrated into the Call of Duty ecosystem and will improve it. This is probably a merger with Call of Duty: Warzone, which has already happened with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Other details about the game, including the setting, have yet to be revealed. Earlier there were rumors that this would be the sequel to Call of Duty: WWII about World War II, which Sledgehammer Games was working on, but there is no official confirmation.
