Though past reports have claimed that 2023 won’t be seeing a new Call of Duty game, with Activision instead supposedly planning to release campaign and multiplayer DLC for Modern Warfare 2, it now looks like plans may have changed. A new report by Insider Gaming claims that the aforementioned DLC plans changed direction during development and are now being billed as a full new entry in the series. The same report has also leaked the specific dates for the game’s launch and its betas.
Supposedly, this year’s new Call of Duty game, which is being led by Sledgehammer, will have its first beta period from October 6 to October 10, which will be available for PS5 and PS4 players only. The second beta period, which will also be available on PC and Xbox consoles, will run from October 12 to October 16. Meanwhile, the game’s full release on all platforms is allegedly set for November 10, with PlayStation users getting early access to the campaign more than a week early, on November 2.
It goes without saying that release dates in the gaming industry are a fickle thing, and even ones that have been announced end up getting changed. That said, October-November is the period that sees Call of Duty launches and betas every year, so this may very well end up being accurate. Either way, we’ll unlikely to find out for sure for several more months, so all we can do now is wait and see.
