Call of Duty 2025 Advanced Warfare Sequel Sledgehammer Games

Call of Duty 2025 is Reportedly a Sequel to Advanced Warfare

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is getting a sequel in 2025, according to a new report. After a few titles setting the series back in its World War II roots, developer Sledgehammer Games is now supposedly moving forward with a sequel to its 2014 entry, Advanced Warfare, throwing the franchise back into the future. Treyarch is also claimed to be developing 2024’s Call of Duty.

According to a new report by What If Gaming, sources close to Sledgehammer Games, specifically its narrative team, pitched a return to the futuristic combat of Advanced Warfare following the middling reception of Call of Duty: Vanguard. This pitch was seemingly approved by Activision executives as Sledgehammer Games is now pushing ahead with a sequel scheduled to release in 2025.

While it could be argued that Treyarch originally experimented with futuristic concepts for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, it was Sledgehammer Games that catapulted the franchise into the distant future with Advanced Warfare. Reception at the time was mostly positive, but after the subsequent releases of Black Ops III and Infinite Warfare both adopted futuristic sci-fi settings, fans yearned for a return to basics for the Call of Duty series.

Sledgehammer Games then took the series back to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII in 2017 – a game that was praised for its single-player campaign but struggled to keep a devoted player base for its multiplayer.

The developer is now responsible for shifting the series back to the future again with Advanced Warfare‘s sequel. It’s unclear if 2023 will see a Call of Duty release but according to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier in a report earlier this year, Activision Blizzard is considering ditching the franchise’s annual release schedule under Xbox’s banner. It’s possible that the Xbox acquisition deal will be approved in early 2023, meaning next year could be the first time since the series began that we won’t see a new Call of Duty game.

As with all rumours and reports, take this with a pinch of salt for now.
