Modern Warfare 3 has been confirmed to be the Call of Duty for 2023 by Sledgehammer Games and Activision.
Previously, Activision was positive that they would move back to a 2-year CoD cycle with the release of MW2. However, following a few issues, Activision announced that they would not stick with the 2-year cycle and will release MW3 in 2023, which will be developed by Sledgehammer Games.
Unlike MW2, Activision had not announced anything related to their next game, even in mid-July. However, following Warzone 2.0 Season 5‘s release, Call of Duty officially announced that the 2023 premium release would be Modern Warfare 3.
Modern Warfare 3: Everything We Know So Far
Sledgehammer Games will be the lead developer for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 in collaboration with Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Raven Software, Beenox, and other Activision-led studios.
Modern Warfare 3 will be the direct sequel to Modern Warfare 2 and will be integrated into Warzone 2.0. All weapons and operators from MW2 will reportedly transition to the new game. Additionally, new weapons and operators will also be added to the sequel with the release.
