Call of Duty 2021 rumored to have a last-gen version

Call of Duty 2021 will be split into two releases for both console generations, according to a known leaker.

In a recent tweet, Battlefield and Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson claims that the unannounced Call of Duty 2021 will be split into two versions: one releasing on PS4 and Xbox One, and the other releasing for PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. However, Henderson doesn't specify how the two versions of the upcoming game will differ from one another.

Previously, it was reported that the unannounced Call of Duty 2021 would feature the series' return to World War Two, an era not seen since Sledgehammer's Call of Duty WW2 in 2017. Additionally, it's been claimed that "Vanguard" is the final subtitle of the unannounced game.

For his part, Henderson has shared a deluge of information surrounding the unannounced Call of Duty and Battlefield games for 2021 over the past few months. The leaker previously claimed that a standalone Call of Duty Zombies project was in the works, and also claimed that League Play would arrive in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War by April at the latest.

It's no surprise that a series as popular as Call of Duty would be aiming to maximise sales by launching on as many platforms as possible, but it's also no secret that accounting for multiple different consoles can prove a headache for developers. It's also interesting to note that Activision is taking aim at a cross-gen approach for 2022's entry too - by that point the new consoles will be around two full years into their life cycles, and you might expect developers to be leaving older machines behind.

There's been very little info on Activision's next FPS, and development plans and schedules are always subject to some degree of change. We'll have to wait and see until later this year for what the future holds for Call of Duty.

Maybe cross platform availability but if from what everyone i know has said if it aint free they aint spending as coldwar and the last few games for the past years have been trash (bar mw of course but thats even terrible now(


not surprised why would they stop supporting a console that isnt dead yet and is still widely available and has more players then a ps5 and series, anyways i still doubt its ww2 because sludgehammer isnt working with activision anymore last i heard.

bobby kotick was very dissapointed in them so he let them go and let 3arc take over their cod so its iw this cod, id be damned if its sludgehammer
