Activision has confirmed that Sledgehammer Games is coming back in the driver’s seat and will be the main developer of Call of Duty 2021. During the company’s Q4 investor call, Activision has confirmed a new Call of Duty release later this year. 2021 is indeed reserved for another Call of Duty title, but this time from Sledgehammer Games’ masterminds.
According to the statement, the game will be built for next-generation PC and Console. Activision executives have also confirmed that the game will integrate the Call of Duty ecosystem and will include campaign, co-op, and other multiplayer modes.
A while ago, Sledgehammer Games’ Twitter profile has become active, connected to the news discovered during the Q4 investor call.

Sledgehammer Games is known for its WW2-themed CoD games, and despite the missing information and game’s theme, rumors estimate that it will be set during WW2 with a brand new name. The game might be named WWII Vanguard and be a follow-up to the previous 2017’s Call of Duty: WW2 title.
