Narrative Director Infinity Ward: Warzone Will Play The Role Of A Link Between The Rest Of The Franchise
On May 3, the French website GamerGen published an interview with the narrative Director of Infinity Ward, Taylor Kurosaki, where he shared his thoughts about the future of Call of Duty and what role Warzone will play in this.
According to Kurosaki, the Studio is going to turn Warzone into a kind of "constant" that will take into account other projects under the Call of Duty franchise, but he did not specify what exactly is meant by this.
Kurosaki said that Call of Duty has long been an independent genre with different sub-series and franchises that are still connected. Warzone, according to him, is designed to link them to each other even more.
The Studio Director also added that Activision plans to support the battle Royale for a long time. This also includes plans for a release on new-generation consoles, but nothing is known about special improvements for the PS5 and Xbox Series X yet.
Besides, the developers are going to add new modes and mechanics to Warzone, including gadgets that can't be added to equipment — they can only be found on the map. According to the authors, they are designed to diversify the gameplay and expand the element of "loot" in the battle Royale.
According to the latest rumors, which were also confirmed by ex-Kotaku editor Jason Schreier, Call of Duty 2020 will be in the black Ops universe but will get a different subtitle. The working title of the project is Call of Duty: Vietnam and the action of the shooter will unfold during the conflict in Vietnam and the Cold war.
In 2019, Kotaku sources also reported that Activision handed over development to Treyarch studios, although Sledgehammer and Raven Software were initially working on it.
If confirmed, the company will break the three-year development cycle between the three studios that it has followed since 2014.
