According to Activision Blizzard, the short answer is yes:
With the success of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), many fans have been wondering, will there be a new Call of Duty in 2020? While it seems rather soon, Activision Blizzard has confirmed that we will see a new Call of Duty in 2020. Activision Blizzard, as many experienced game creators would know, even acknowledged that the release of a new Call of Duty in 2020 means that it won’t sell as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019). We are unaware which studio will be creating the game this time, and no details on platforms were shared, which has left us assuming that it will be made available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
This week, Activision Blizzard spoke about Modern Warfare’s success and how it surpassed earnings over Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 with relative ease. While they didn’t provide specifics about the game’s success, they said that this year’s Call of Duty title, set to be released in late 2020, will not perform as well as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019).
In December of 2019, Activision Blizzard stated that Modern Warfare generated more than $1 billion in revenue and that players spent more than 500 million hours playing multiplayer. Players have played nearly 300 million matches since release. Unsurprisingly, Modern Warfare (2019) was December’s best-selling game, and the best selling game for all of 2019, while Black Ops 4 took the ninth spot as the best selling game this decade.
