Previous reports suggested that this year’s Call of Duty would be the last game in the series to appear on last-gen consoles but it looks like some new information could indicate that Call of Duty 2024 might also be heading to PS4 and Xbox One. This also comes in light of Microsoft promising to bring Call of Duty games to Nintendo hardware for the next ten years.
A recent report by Insider Gaming claims that 2024’s Call of Duty, codenamed Cerberus, will be coming to both current-gen and last-gen consoles despite rumours about this year’s entry being the last to release on previous generations. Documents provided to Insider Gaming reveals that next year’s Call of Duty also appears to list PS4 and Xbox One consoles as part of its release plans, though the site emphasised that this information could possibly be outdated.

Some of the information released from a recent Activision data breach has since changed and contradicts Insider Gaming’s obtained documents, meaning it’s likely that Activision could’ve focused its development efforts on current-gen hardware only along the way.
With Nintendo signing a ten-year deal to bring new Call of Duty games to its hardware, a last-gen release for Call of Duty 2024 isn’t out of the question since the Switch hardware is still falling behind in terms of power when compared to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
It’s possible that new Nintendo hardware could release by 2024, though, as a previous report claimed that the company has already begun negotiations with suppliers for its next console that could arrive next year. The new hardware will likely be sufficient enough to support newer game releases and hopefully keep up with current-gen competitors.
As with all rumours and reports, take this with a pinch of salt for now. 2023 could very well be the last year that PS4 and Xbox One will receive a Call of Duty release.
