The next Call of Duty entry is expected to arrive this year - and we've now got an official confirmation via social media and Activision Blizzard's latest financial report.

It confirms development of the 2022 entry is being handled by the team over at Infinity Ward, and that this "new generation" game is "coming soon".

In addition to the tweet, here's what Activision Blizzard had to say about the new COD in its Q4, 2021 financial results:

"Development on this year’s premium and Warzone experiences is being led by Activision’s renowned Infinity Ward studio."

According to previous leaks, this year's COD entry will reportedly be a sequel to 2019's Modern Warfare.
