Xbox accidentally announced the next Call Of Duty a little early

Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer appears to have just confirmed the next Call of Duty entry a tad too early, oops.

It’s set to be an important day for Xbox and Microsoft. Later on, Spencer will host a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast during which the company’s new strategy will be laid out. This follows on from a major leak which suggested that Xbox would be switching from a focus on first-party exclusives to more of a multi-platform model. It was suggested that Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves were ready to launch on PlayStation 5, with Starfield potentially following but this is all speculative until we get confirmation later today. The leak has already caused a ruckus within the Xbox community, so I can only imagine that’ll soon intensify. In the meantime, we shift our attention to this latest Call of Duty blunder.

Hi-Fi Rush is a fantastic game. Take a look at it in action below.

As reported by Inverse, Phil Spencer recently told employees during an internal town hall meeting that the next Call of Duty game is expected to launch in October. Officially, nothing has yet been announced by Activision or Treyarch, the expected developer of the game. That being said, while Spencer’s comment likely wasn’t intended for public ears, it’s hardly shocking news.

The Call of Duty franchise has been following a yearly release cycle for quite some time now. A summer reveal is usually followed by an autumn release - that’s if you're following the seasons of the northern hemisphere - so Spencer’s comment solidifies what we already expected.

As for the theme of the next Call of Duty entry, it’s believed to be a new Black Ops game which could prove to be a refreshing shift after two back to back Modern Warfare instalments. Insiders believe the game will shift forwards to the 90s, transporting players to the Gulf War but for now, we’re going to have to take this information with caution until a full reveal provides confirmation.
