Activision Blizzard says Modern Warfare reboot sequel is “the most advanced experience in franchise history”

Activision Blizzard’s financial results for the first quarter of 2022 have been released, where the company touched on the next Call of Duty games and the upcoming release of Diablo Immortal.

The financial results cover up to the end of the quarter, March 31, and obviously briefly touched on that whole Microsoft acquisition thing. It noted that the transaction is “expected to close in Microsoft’s fiscal year ending June 30, 2023,” with the boards of both Activision Blizzard and Microsoft having approved it. More interestingly, the results touched on the upcoming sequel to 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot, and the new Warzone “experience”, which still isn’t particularly clear.

“This year’s Call of Duty is a sequel to 2019’s Modern Warfare, the most successful Call of Duty title to date, and will be the most advanced experience in franchise history,” reads the financial results. As well as this, the Warzone “experience” is being built “from the ground-up alongside the premium game,” and will apparently have “groundbreaking innovations,” which should see a reveal later this year.
