This article is your hub of information for this year’s Call of Duty game which will reinvigorate some interest in the franchise and keep it at the top of everyone’s best FPS games lists. The best competitive FPS games have always struggled to top Call of Duty, but with competition this year from Ubisoft’s XDefiant and Embark Studios’ The Finals, Call of Duty 2023 will have to really stand out.
Call of Duty 2023 release date rumors
Call of Duty 2023 is reportedly set to release on Friday, November 10, 2023, on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC. This comes from a report from Insider Gaming, which also claims that the game is called Modern Warfare 3 and is a direct sequel to MW2.
This hasn’t been confirmed by Activision yet but we do know a premium Call of Duty game is releasing this Fall that was originally meant to be an expansion of Modern Warfare 2. The switch was highlighted by Jason Schreier, in addition Insider Gaming’s report. So, this does all line up and the release is usually in the late October, or early November time frame for the series.
Who is the Call of Duty 2023 developer?
The Call of Duty 2023 developer is Sledgehammer Games who are picking up the Modern Warfare 2 mantle from Infinity Ward. This has been reiterated by both Inside Gaming and Jason Schreier.
Call of Duty 2023 modes
Call of Duty 2023 will reportedly have three modes. They are campaign, multiplayer, and Zombies. The campaign and multiplayer is similar to what we have seen in previous games in the series, most likely, but the Zombies mode is reportedly Outbreak 2.0 and could be released on its own for free, as stated in the same report above from Insider Gaming.
Outbreak was a part of Black Ops Cold War and offered a large-scale Zombies experience for you to engage with and was refreshing for the series. It isn’t clear if this will come alongside a normal small-scale mode as well yet.
When will Call of Duty 2023 be revealed?
Call of Duty 2023 will be revealed in August 2023, according to Insider Gaming’s report.
Call of Duty 2023 beta
A beta for Call of Duty 2023 will reportedly be held from October 6 – October 10 for PS5 and PS4 players, with another beta the following week from October 12 – October 16 for all platforms, including Xbox and PC.
Additionally, Call of Duty 2023 will also have a campaign early access period once again, this time launching on November 2, 2023. The dates for this and the beta were confirmed in the report from Tom Henderson.
Call of Duty 2023 leaks
As we mentioned, there has already been a lot leaked about Call of Duty 2023. In addition to Insider Gaming’s information, which you can read here. They also say that the game’s new Warzone 2 map will be Las Almas, which was first leaked within Modern Warfare 2‘s campaign.
Besides that information, we actually haven’t had too much leak from the game itself. But, we do know some details about it, including from Jason Schreier who says the story will continue Modern Warfare 2’s story, so we can expect Price, Ghost, Makarov and the other Modern Warfare 2 characters to return.
We will undoubtedly get some more details on this game, which is likely Modern Warfare 3, and we will update this article as more details emerge.
Will Call of Duty 2023 have Warzone 2 integration?
Yes, Warzone 2 will have Warzone 2 integration if the leaks are to be believed as Insider Gaming state that the game will have its own map, Las Almas, launching alongside Season 1. As such, we can expect all your unlocks, COD Points, skins, etc to still be useable when the refresh happens in December when Season 1 is supposed to launch.
That covers everything you need to know about Call of Duty 2023 right now including the release date, developer, modes, and more. As you can see, if you like boots on the ground you are in luck, but if you were looking for Call of Duty to refresh itself, you may need to wait until 2024. Still we would be surprised if the game doesn’t become one of the best FPS games on PS5 or best FPS games on Xbox platforms.
