A sequel to the popular battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone could be in the works, according to a new report.

While a new main title in the Call of Duty franchise seems to arrive like clockwork, perhaps players weren't expecting a sequel to Warzone to be on the table. According to Bloomberg, Activision had already established a deal with Sony to have the next Call of Duty games made available on the console, prior to Activision's acquisition by Microsoft.

As part of the deal, a new Call of Duty: Warzone had been planned. Described as a new iteration, the sequel is thought to be aiming for a 2023 release.

Naturally, there's very little information at this stage outside of Bloomberg's report. It remains to be seen if Raven Software will be taking charge of the sequel, or how it will differ from the current version of Warzone. According to a Tweet from Tom Henderson, the new Warzone will only be heading to current gen consoles and PCs.

Call of Duty: Warzone, while popular, has suffered from some major instances of bugs and glitches since its launch. In addition, rampant hackers have made the game difficult to enjoy for even its most die-hard fans.

While concerns might surface over what a sequel might do to the current playerbase of Warzone, a new iteration would hopefully improve on areas where Warzone is lacking. It could also be a great chance to give Warzone the rework it needs, fixing the game-breaking bugs that so frequently plague matches.

Aside from its existence, and a potential release window, not much else is known. No doubt more information will begin to surface throughout the year.
