Currently known by the code name “Saturn,” Insider Gaming has learned from multiple sources that Call of Duty 25 is set to take players back to the future. And no, I don’t mean that we’ll be playing Marty McFly and the Doc anytime soon (but never say never), but rather, Call of Duty 2025 is set to take place in the very near future. Call of Duty hasn’t had a game set in the future since 2018’s Black Ops 4.
Insider Gaming understands that Call of Duty 2025 is currently in development as a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which will take place around 2030 (Black Ops 2 will take place in 2025). As such, fans should expect the return of some fan-favorite protagonists as the team takes on a new villain following Menendez’s death.
As previously reported, remastered maps from Black Ops 2 will be coming to the game, but recent plans and the scope of the game have changed significantly.
Previously, the intention was to release all remastered maps from Black Ops 2 at launch, similar to how maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009) returned in Modern Warfare 3. However, the current plan is now to release new maps and remastered maps. cards in conjunction. Although only one source commented on the change, it was speculated that the game was likely a response to widespread fan criticism that described Modern Warfare 3 as glorified DLC compared to its 2022 predecessor.
Modern Warfare 3 only had 16 months of development due to a lack of high-level planning and internal changes that led to Sledgehammer Games experiencing immense pressure and crisis to deliver a premium Call of Duty title on time . The final product resulted in a game with 16 remastered maps from Modern Warfare 2 (2009) at launch and a campaign that lasted a few hours. Despite the game’s apparent flaws, it was said that the game performed extremely well, with Infinity Ward already well into the development of its next Modern Warfare game.
Speaking on other specific details about Call of Duty 2025, which are in flux due to the game’s early stage of development (22 months away at the time of writing), it is understood that the game is also expected to undergo a overhaul of his movement. system, the return of a classic “pick 10” to create a class, the gunfight game mode and another year of round-based zombies.
It is currently unclear whether Call of Duty 2024’s “Carry Forward”, named Black Ops Gulf War, will be integrated due to the significant time jump and change in the game’s overall strategy. of a completely new game,” one said, suggesting that may not be the case.
With Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 being one of the best-selling games in the series to date, with just under 30 million units sold, it makes sense that Activision would once again capitalize on the nostalgia, while providing players with new and exciting content. .
