To give a brief, Advanced Warfare is a 2014 video game title based in a futuristic war setting. Moreover, Sledgehammer Games has played a pivotal role in building this title of the franchise. Recently, there had been rumors living on the internet about an expected sequel of Advanced Warfare.

Also, CharlieIntel, a trusted source for Call of Duty-related news, had spoken about the rumors. Through a tweet, the organization said, “here’s an unverified rumor that Advanced Warfare 2 from Sledgehammer is coming in 2025. We cannot confirm this at all, and it also seems unlikely Activision won’t give Treyarch’s 2024 game a 2 year cycle.” However, it seems that the rumors might have reached a dead end, at least for a while.

Nevertheless, the organization went ahead to mention that the “Call of Duty franchise is moving towards a release every two years, meaning the game should release in 2026.” Furthermore, they said that Sledgehammer Games might be looking at a futuristic view in their next game. Although, they weren’t unable to verify the claims. However, the chances of it being Advanced Warfare 2 seem to be negligible.
