Back in February, we brought news of a report detailing Call of Duty's upcoming release slate. That report said that developer Treyarch's next CoD will now launch in 2024, and that a free-to-play title would fill the gap next year. However, a fresh report from leaker Tom Henderson has thrown that supposed plan into doubt.

Given Activision has now revealed that a sequel to Warzone will launch this year alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, all signs pointed towards the series' much rumoured Escape From Tarkov-like mode being 2023's free-to-play offering. However, Henderson has now said that this 'DMZ' mode is just that, a mode, and it's tied to 2022's Modern Warfare 2.


That throws Call of Duty 2023 plans up in the air. Other rumours have pointed towards a Zombies-based title dropping next year, but we've not had confirmation on that either. For now, all we know for sure is that Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will launch in 2022.

In truth, we're just waiting for the big Activision Blizzard & Xbox deal to go through. That'll lead to a huge Call of Duty presence on Xbox Game Pass, and in that case, pricing models for upcoming CoD games would have much less of an impact for Xbox players.
