We haven’t had much clarity on what 2023 is going to look like for the Call of Duty franchise, but things have nonetheless started taking clearer shapes with reports and leaks over the past few weeks. Reportedly, this year’s Call of Duty game is set to be a follow-up to last year’s Modern Warfare 2, with Sledgehammer Games developing the shooter and Infinity Ward and Treyarch providing assistance.
But while it was previously reported that this year’s instalment was unlikely to be a direct numerical sequel to 2022’s Infinity Ward shooter, it seems like that will indeed be the case after all. That’s as per a report published by Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson, who claims that 2023’s release is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and that in addition to a single player campaign and a multiplayer component, it will also feature a Zombies mode.
According to Henderson, Modern Warfare 3’s Zombies mode is “essentially Outbreak 2.0”, though interestingly, he claims Activision is currently unsure about whether it should be packaged with the game itself or be shipped as a standalone free-to-play mode. Previous reports have claimed that a standalone Call of Duty: Zombies title is also in the works.
Additionally, the report also claims that Modern Warfare 3 will also bring with it a new battle royale map for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 in its first season. The map is reportedly based on Las Almas, a location from Modern Warfare 2’s campaign, and is currently targeting an early December launch.
As per a previous report by Henderson, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is due out in November, with beta weekends scheduled for the month prior. The shooter is allegedly set to be unveiled in August.
