'Call Of Duty: WWII' Studio Likely To Be Developing Call Of Duty 2021

'Call Of Duty: WWII' Studio Likely To Be Developing Call Of Duty 2021

Stop - Sledgehammer time.

Ah back on the Call of Duty grind are we? If you're unfamiliar with how the development of one of the biggest game series in the world works, the games famously aren't just developed by one studio but three. To keep up with the yearly release of the series, they need three to keep on top of the work that is needed to create a triple-A production every 12 months or so.

Call of Duty: Cold War was a Treyarch production while previous entry Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was made by Infinity Ward. And so, although the third studio Sledgehammer Games was a major supporting role in getting those two games out the door it will apparently be the lead on 2021's Call of Duty game.

If you remember, Sledgehammer Games was responsible for Call of Duty: WWII as its most recent entry into the series so it'll be interesting to see if they retain a historical perspective - that is, if report is correct. Twitter user Tom Henderson (the person who has tweeted this particular idea) has reported CoD news correctly in the past, such as Cold War killstreaks.

The report isn't based on a leak, rather it's that Henderson knows the timing of the previous games in terms of development and as the other two studios have been heavily involved with Warzone, Modern Warfare, and Cold War it makes sense for the next game to be handed to the third studio. 14 months for Infinity Ward to develop a new game doesn't feel like enough time for a polished project so it's likely it's Sledgehammer Games developing the 2021 CoD title.

It has supported the last two games without news of its own title, and it feels like high time they get another shot at building another entry into the series. We'll hear more about the game in the coming year in the lead up to November/December 2021.
