The end of 2023 is rapidly approaching and we’re waiting with bated breath as to whether a new Call of Duty will be announced for this year.
While Call of Duty is fairly consistent with their releases, dropping them in a similar time frame each year (every year), there are always slight variations.
Many rumours have sparked up that perhaps this year’s release may just be a premium DLC launch.
So is a Call of Duty releasing in 2023?
Is Modern Warfare 3 Releasing In 2023?
Every year, without fail, since 2007, Call of Duty has launched a new title.
Usually, the new Call of Duty releases in either October or November.
It seems this year is no different, as the Judge overseeing proceedings in Activision’s court battle against the FTC on June 30th let it slip that this year’s Call of Duty would release in November 2023.
This was further emphasised by the fact the Call of Duty Twitter account posted an eyes emoji shortly after word spread onto Social Media.
Furthermore, a previous Insider Gaming report, from reliable leaker Tom Henderson claimed that Call of Duty 2023 will arrive on November 10, 2023.
So, to answer the question: Yes, a new Call of Duty will launch this year.
