It is not yet known if there will be a new part of the “Call of Duty” series every year in the future. However, Activision no longer sees “Call of Duty” as a series with annual releases in the classic style. Rather, it is an always-on model with continually new content.
New Call of Duty games continue to be released every year. However, according to Activision, in recent years there has been a shift towards a constant stream of content which has resulted in fans of the series getting new content throughout the year, making the regular release of a new game be less of a central event.
This includes Season Pass content, new Operators, and a variety of additional content that is constantly available from in-game stores. Where Call of Duty used to be something that was released once a year and became less relevant in the following months, it’s now a franchise that constantly releases new content, which greatly affects staff tension.
Apparently Call of Duty 2.0 planned
Regarding “constant availability”, we recently reported on an Activision Blizzard job posting where for “Call of Duty 2.0” is mentioned and mentions subscription-based content and an “always connection to the community and players.” The wording of the job ad doesn’t go into too much detail, but it’s consistent with the ongoing realignment of the series.
Activision also noted that the company has “ambitious plans” for the future, which includes plans for mobile platforms. For this reason, situations can arise within the workforce where the workload fluctuates. In such situations, the team will receive additional support from partners.
Conditions are also improving. Activision Blizzard announced this week that it will offer permanent, full-time positions to all temporary QA testers in the US At the same time, the minimum wage will be raised to $20 an hour. This comes just a few months after QA testers at Call of Duty: Warzone studio Raven Software staged a walkout and subsequently began unionizing.
