As part of today’s Activision quarterly earnings call, the publisher confirmed that the Call of Duty 2020 release target is still on track for this year. Not only that but two games from the publisher’s library of IPs are getting announced as well.
According to Activision, they expect to release a “robust slate of content for the remainder of the year” that includes: the “next premium” release of Call of Duty, and “two titles baed on library IP from Activision.” While it’s might sound weird for some to get confirmation for a premium Call of Duty game planned for release later this year given we’ve been subjected to it for over a decade, the on-going COVID-19 pandemic has cast doubt whether this year’s Call of Duty 2020 release would be pushed back.
Speaking of which, we’re expecting Call of Duty 2020 to be announced sometime this month if Activision follows its yearly trend, and based on rumors, it’ll be Treyarch once again at the helm for this alleged boots-on-ground Call of Duty game that may or may not be a Black Ops reboot. As for the two unannounced games from Activision’s IP, we ran a story that mentions how Activision is developing a Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortext remaster, so that could be it.
