Last year, SEGA entered a partnership with Microsoft, which will see the publisher using Microsoft’s tech to develop a ‘Super Game’ over the next five years. The ‘Super Game’ concept wasn’t exactly defined back when this announcement was made, but SEGA has since shared more details.
According to prominent leaker, Tom Henderson, Sledgehammer Games has begun pre-production on its next Call of Duty title. This is in addition to a number of other Call of Duty projects in the works, including Warzone 2, Modern Warfare 2, Treyarch’s next game, a new Zombies focused game and new mobile games.
Unfortunately, details on Sledgehammer’s next Call of Duty are still thin. We do not know if the studio will go ahead with Vanguard sequels, but we do know that the writers had plans for a trilogy of Vanguard games.
Call of Duty is going through some big changes at the moment too, as Activision has restructured its studios, shifted around support teams and is currently planning a merger with Microsoft. In the midst of all this, Call of Duty 2023 has been pushed to 2024, although we should get Warzone 2 next year instead. Infinity Ward is also on track to release Modern Warfare 2 later this year.
KitGuru Says: Depending on what Treyarch has planned for its next game, Sledgehammer might be better off going back to Advanced Warfare to stand out a bit more gameplay-wise. What do you all think Sledgehammer should do next?
