KEY POINTS

  • "Call of Duty 2021" is the next installment of the successful "COD" franchise
  • The game is currently in the works at Sledgehammer Games
  • "Call of Duty 2021" will reportedly release in November

A new "Call of Duty 2021" leak has revealed some interesting details about the game's Zombies component.

Reliable industry insider Victor shared new details about the premium "Call of Duty 2021" game, which excited hardcore "CoD" players. The insider said the upcoming title's Zombies component will be handled by Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch. 

While Sledgehammer Games was expected to dip its hands in the game's Zombies mode, it would be exciting to see Treyarch giving the studio a hand. Treyarch is known for its knack for creating spectacular zombies mode in various "Call of Duty" titles.

Video game publisher Activision confirmed in its recent earnings call that the highly anticipated "Call of Duty" installment for this year will release sometime in the fall this year.

Activision President Dan Alegre said, "We are very excited for this year's premium Call of Duty release." He noted, "development is being led by Sledgehammer Games. The game is looking great and on track for its Fall [2021] release."

However, the video game publisher announced it would not show "Call of Duty 2021" at the upcoming E3 2021.

A recent report claimed that Activision would officially announce "Call of Duty 2021" sometime this summer. The report claimed that the announcement would be similar to what the devs did with "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's" launch. The game was announced at an in-game "Call of Duty: Warzone" event.

The report also revealed that Activision was planning to roll out a new "Warzone" map, which could be the biggest and most ambitious one from the franchise. The map will be released in the game to align with the release of the premium "Call of Duty 2021" title, the report added. But there is no official announcement to confirm the claims.

The next "COD" title will reportedly launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X and S sometime in November.
