Wondering what Call of Duty 2023 will be? We've got you covered.

Now that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has finally been released in full, it's perhaps no surprise that many in the community are wondering what's next. Here's a breakdown of what to expect from Call of Duty in 2023.

What is Call of Duty 2023?

According to numerous leaks and reports in recent months, Call of Duty won't be seeing a traditional, mainline release in 2023. Instead, as reported by Bloomberg's Jason Schreier, it appears that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will be receiving a Sledgehammer Games-developed premium DLC offering next year that includes enough content for Activision to charge players "full price" (~$70) for it. The MW2 DLC content is rumored to include a Modern Warfare 2 (2009) map pack and a continuation of the campaign.

Per Schreier, it is unclear at this point whether not players will need to own MW2 before buying the 2023 DLC content.

As reported by Bloomberg in February, Activision's next two major Call of Duty releases are expected to be Warzone 2.0 and a 2024 mainline title being developed by Treyarch.
