Call of Duty Season 4 might reveal the next installment in the franchise set to be developed by Sledgehammer Games.
We've already seen Warzone be used multiple times as a platform for franchise announcements. It was notably used for an in-game event in which Black Ops Cold War was revealed. Activision announced Sledgehammer Games is developing the next title, but there's been no confirmation on what time period that title will be set in.
ZestyCODLeaks posted on Twitter that there were new in-game files found in Warzone. Some of the file names hint at a possible in-game event.
The current rumor is that it will be set during World War II once again. Sledgehammer's last title was aptly titled, Call of Duty: WWII, but fans are apprehensive about yet another title set in the 1940s.
Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Might Feature a COD 2021 Reveal
It's been confirmed that the game will have a Fall release once again. Fans also know that the new title will be integrated into Warzone reaffirming Activision's commitment to the battle royale title.
Considering Activision used Warzone for the last COD reveal, it's safe to assume it will be used once again this year. There's the ever-looming factor that Warzone will time travel once again if the new title is set during World War II. The latest Warzone season featured a map overhaul sending players back in time to Verdansk during 1984. A reveal that left a sour taste in fans' mouths.
Fans hope that Warzone won't have to feature a time jump or rewind every time a new Call of Duty title comes out.
