The mainline Call of Duty title for 2025 will be a sequel to the Advanced Warfare timeline, according to a rumor. The news comes from a source close to Sledgehammer Games. The studio has been tasked with developing the sequel, which will be released in 2025. The company originally aimed to develop a continuation of the story of the original Call of Duty: Vanguard, but lukewarm reviews pushed them to return to the Advanced Warfare world instead.
The rumor claims that the sequel will be developed on the IW 9.0 engine and will be released in 2025. While the source is unnamed, it has been proven to be accurate in the past. It is unlikely that these claims are accurate, but it does give us a better idea of what we should expect in the near future.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Sledgehammer Games is working on a sequel to Advanced Warfare. The 2014 title was a game that broke the series’ formula, bringing futuristic technology and exoskeletons into the mix.
Advanced Warfare introduced new exosuits for players, and Kevin Spacey portrayed the antagonist in the game. It also introduced new abilities, such as boost-jumping and wall-running. Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare was a major hit, and it even spawned the “Press F to pay respects” meme.
