As Call of Duty rumors continue to ramp up leading up to the release of this year’s Modern Warfare 3, a new rumor has emerged claiming that Call of Duty 2025, which is purportedly being developed by Treyarch will be a direct sequel to COD 2024 and also include the original roster of multiplayer maps from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
According to Twitter user and well-known Call of Duty leaker @el_bobberto, Treyarch is looking to include maps from the 2012 classic as part of the lineup for their game releasing in 2025. This game will reportedly serve as a follow-up to Treyarch’s Call of Duty 2024, in the same way that Modern Warfare 3 is directly following last year’s Modern Warfare 2.
This is very likely to change within the next 2 years, but COD 2025 seems to be like MWIII but for Treyarch's 2024 title, featuring BO2 multiplayer map remasters. pic.twitter.com/kvW3VcpTOz

This claim was backed up by Twitter user @TheMW2Ghost, who claims that they had also heard talk of plans to remaster Black Ops 2’s maps “some time back.”
From what I’ve heard some time back, I can add that I also heard similar that Black Ops 2 maps were in the remaster pipeline. https://t.co/VeyKDiHSfa

While Call of Duty games are released yearly, usually, the game’s sub franchises alternate between years. If this rumor rings true, then that old tradition is being put aside; something we’re seeing with Modern Warfare 2 now leading up to Modern Warfare 3 just 12 months after instead of another COD sub franchise being released.
Rumors like these should always be taken with many, many grains of salt. As the leaker himself stated in his original tweet, these plans are very likely to change in the next two years. It’s safe to assume that Activision will wait to see the fan reception for the remastered MW2 maps coming to this year’s Call of Duty before committing to anything for the next couple of games. Still, it would be great to see maps like Hijacked, Raid, and Standoff reimagined for the modern era.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is currently cycling its own fair share of rumors. We recently saw reported leaks of the game’s new tactical equipment system. To keep up with news about all things Call of Duty, stay tuned in to us here at MP1st.
