Call Of Duty in shambles Treyarch replaces Sledgehammer, Black Ops 5 confirmed for 2020
 

 


A new bombshell report has surfaced from Jason Schreier of Kotaku regarding Call of Dutys 2020 release. He has reported that current in-development Call of Duty 2020 game is in a mess state, and Treyarch is taking over the development to bring Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 as the 2020 Call of Duty game.

Kotaku states that Activision informed the studios this week of the major change that the company is making to its plans, as Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software were still in development of the 2020 Call of Duty game.

Its a significant shift for Activisions massive first-person shooter franchise, which is one of the most lucrative video game series on the planet. Every fall for the past 15 years, Activision has put out a new Call of Duty game, supported by a stable of different developers who rotated duties as required. Since 2012, Activision has followed a three-year cycle for its three lead studios: Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer.

Kotaku reports that Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will serve as support studios to work with Treyarch on bringing out the 2020 Call of Duty game. Raven Software was actually the lead development studio for the 2020 Call of Duty game with SHG supporting them. SHG and Raven have been working on a single player campaign for their 2020 game set in Cold War, and that is supposed to be the campaign for the new Black Ops game.

As part of their report, Kotaku sources told them that there was tension between Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software during the development of 2020 title. The studios kept arguing over the features of the 2020 title. The game was apparently a mess. Activision decided to step in and put Treyarch in charge of a new Black Ops project for 2020.

This will be the first time that Treyarch is making a Call of Duty game in the 2 year development cycle since the release of Black Ops 2 back in 2012. Since then, Treyarchs Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4 have been created in a 3 year development cycle.

Sledgehammer Games has been having a rocky time the last year, with co-founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield departing the company in 2018. The new studio leadership is under Aaron Halon. It was not clear what the studio planned to make after the Call of Duty: WWII season with the co-founders departing. Condrey has reportedly been recruiting Sledgehammer developers to his new 2K Studio and many developers have been leaving SHG over the past year.

Sledgehammer Games not making a fully fledged title for 2020 will be the first time the studio has missed three year release since 2014. SHG was founded in 2009 as an Activision studio and started their journey as co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 back in 2011 with Infinity Ward. After that, Activision transitioned Call of Duty to a three year development cycle with SHG, Treyarch, and Infinity Ward as the lead developers. SHG released Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 2014 and Call of Duty: WWII in 2017.

If this is the case, next year will see a new Black Ops game marking the fifth title in the sub-series.

Activision has not confirmed this info and did not issue a statement.

I wish they would let the franchise get a year off completely and let Treyarch really reboot the game from the ground up like how a*sassin's Creed took that year off and came back.

They need to give it up already, but they're still trying to milk the loyalists.

games always fizz out cause they focus on customization and not on gameplay and controls

if they truly scale it back and focus on level design and controls it'll be good again

all that k*ll streak bullsh*t and uneven powerups

instead of being good at the game i gotta sit at the menu screen for an hour to guess what the best setup is

i personally like when everybody has the same setups and you just have to play better

The double important of the 2020 COD game is: 1)Its COD. 2)Its the first next generation Call of Duty.

Regardless, they could have released this with Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software developing and it still would have sold billions. Activision is giving a sh*t now cause their stock holders expect record breaking sales for each COD game, and it hasn't happened in a long time. They selling just about the same amount every year. If this 2020 game doesn't outsell the 2019 game, heads are gonna roll.

Black Ops 4 is fu*kin sh*t. Every time I play that garbage game I feel like a heroin addict. Get hit, take needle, get hit, take needle, take needle while getting hit and shooting. Blackout is trash and stale too

Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2 were the best games they put out.

That WWII game that came out a few years back was decent as well

Same goes for sports games too.... how Many time can u raise currys stats and call it a new game? What difference is madden making that's not in the previous game?

f*ghting games too! I play them sh*t for like 2 weeks. Learn the moves, then get bored

Only games with replay value are 3rd person role playing ones.
