Tom Henderson, previously known as Long Sensation, is rather consistent with his news and leaks. He was the individual who teased the first concrete information on Black Ops: Cold War in a PS5 event in mid-2020. His leaks on Modern WarfareWarzone, Black Ops Cold War were mostly accurate.

Furthermore, Modern Warzone, another leaker on Twitter, addressed the same topic. He did not straightaway deny the rumor, but said that they have no insight to offer at the moment.

Popular YouTuber TheGamingRevolution, took to Twitter to discuss what the next Call of Duty game will be like. According to him, a ‘mix of gameplay’ will be best for the franchise and the players. Fans of the Black Ops and Advanced Warfare titles will agree that they miss the futuristic CoD.

All these speculations also point towards Sledgehammer Games, the studio responsible for CoD titles like WW2 and Advanced Warfare.

Will Sledgehammer Games develop the next Call of Duty?

While Sledgehammer Games is keeping silent about its secret project, Modern Warzone is not ruling out the chances of them developing the next CoD. In the tweet above, there is reassurance that they will leak any information on CoD 2021, once they lay their hands on it.

In all honesty, Advanced Warfare 2 sounds like a more probable line of thought than bringing out a WW3 title. Sledgehammer Games last made a CoD title back in 2017, when it released WW2. The studio has shown it has the diversity to imagine and deliver all kinds of game mechanics, historic or futuristic.

It recently tweeted a New Year’s greetings, that sparked all the debate on the upcoming and unknown CoD 2021 title.
