Call of Duty might stop releasing a version every year.
Así lo affirmed a report of Bloombergwhich ensures that the “high-level employees” of Activision are considering changing the publication schedule of the saga, which has been annual since 2005.
La información llega después de Acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft – an agreement that will come into effect at the end of June 2023. No parece que el próximo Call of Duty – que se espera qu’en launch un poco antes de Navidades – vaya a verse afectado por un hypotético cambio.
Los Call of Duty jugadores, in general, reacted positively to this news. Especially after the well-received release of Modern Warfare (2019) a year later. Los usuarios llevan ya un tiempo reclamando tiempos de vida más largos para estos juegos.
This hypothetical change of plans might also mean that the Activision team seems to be having trouble meeting release dates for its downloadable content over the past few months.
According to Bloomberg, Activision employees are optimistic about the Microsoft acquisition, despite uncertainty about whether it could mean possible layoffs.
Bloomberg also points to an “emotional” feel for hypothetical greater creative freedom under Xbox’s tenure. In recent years, Activision had put almost all of its studios at the service of Call of Duty, making sagas like Crash, Spyro, Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater fall much more into oblivion.
