A recent Bloomberg report has suggested that 2023’s Call of Duty game has been delayed to 2024, but Activision has come out to refute the claims of the source.

Activision Denies Reports of Call of Duty 2023 Being Delayed

Originally, it was reported that a source close to the situation has said that the developers were taking a look at Call of Duty’s yearly release model, and suggests that the game that was intended to come out next year had been pushed to 2024.

Now IGN is reporting that Activision has released a statement denying the delay. They write:

“We have an exciting slate of premium and free-to-play Call of Duty experiences for this year, next year and beyond. Reports of anything otherwise are incorrect. We look forward to sharing more details when the time is right.”

It was originally speculated that the delay was because of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard, but that probably isn’t the case. There was also going around that Activision wasn’t pleased with the numbers that the latest COD game, Vanguard was pulling in, resulting in a delay and a change of the release model.

 If anything, the Call of Duty game coming out this year is still on track, and we should be getting some kind of announcement soon. We don’t know exactly what the next entry could be, but some speculate it could be a new Modern Warfare title. Until we get that official reveal, all we can really do is wait.

In the meantime, fans can check out Call of Duty: Vanguard which is now available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 4|5.
