A direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be released in 2025. The game is currently being developed under the code name “Saturn” Insider Tom Henderson reports this, citing his sources.
The new game will take place around 2030, 5 years after the events of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This means we can expect some of the main characters to appear. According to the insider, the developers will update the movement system, return the classic “Choose 10” class creation mode and the Gunfight mode. They won’t forget about the zombie mode.
Initially, Activision wanted to release the game with the old multiplayer maps, having previously updated them graphically. But due to criticism of this approach, Modern Warfare III decided to add several new maps. The transfer of weapons from the previous game, as implemented in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, also remains questionable.
There are still about 22 months left before the game’s release, so there is not much information about it, nor are there guarantees that it will be released at all.
