Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is Going to Continue to be Supported After its “Cycle” Has Ended, Insider Says

Insider Tom Henderson says that owing to better post-launch revenue than anticipated, Activision plans on continuing to support Black Ops Cold War longer than you'd expect.

Call of Duty’s cadence of yearly releases has traditionally meant that when a new game releases, support for the previous title, no matter how big its playerbase or how well-received it was, largely slows down to a trickle, especially in terms of new content or major updates. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, for instance, came along and ended up killing the support for Modern Warfare (2019), which fans weren’t exactly thrilled about, especially given the gap in quality in the two games.

However, the case might not be the same this time around. Known insider Tom Henderson – who’s an active (and generally reliable) leaker of Call of Duty information – recently took to Twitter and said that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is going to continue to be supported even after its traditional “cycle” is over, to the extent that it’s likely to become the longest supported Call of Duty game in that sense. The reason? Apparently, the game’s post-launch revenue has exceeded Activision’s expectations, and the publisher is eager to keep the train going.

Meanwhile, Black Ops Cold War’s cycle is going to end later this year, when the next game in the series, developed by Sledgehammer Games, launches in a few months. It’s supposedly titled Call of Duty: Vanguard, set during the Second World War, and might be getting revealed soon.
