Sledgehammer Games is reportedly working on a sequel to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
In a report for What If Gaming, Valve claims Sledgehammer will revisit the futuristic combat of 2014’s Advanced Warfare following the relatively poor performance of its most recent series entry, which was last year’s World War 2 game Call of Duty Vanguard.
Sci-fi shooter Advanced Warfare shook up Call of Duty’s traditional ‘boots-on-the-ground’ gameplay with the introduction of Exo Suits that gave players advanced strength and mobility, including moves like Boost Jump, Boost Dash and Boost Slam.
‘Boots-off-the-ground’ gameplay also featured in 2015’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and 2016’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, before the series reverted to more traditional combat in Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: WWII in 2017 and subsequent series entries.
Valve claims that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare 2 is slated for release in 2025, when Sledgehammer could also bring a futuristic twist to battle royale game Call of Duty Warzone.
