Call of Duty 2023 Release Month Leaked by Federal Judge

It appears that we have gained some insight into the release date for this year's Call of Duty game, thanks to a federal judge. Call of Duty is a powerhouse franchise known for its annual releases, and it has rarely deviated from this pattern. There were rumors circulating that Activision might skip a few years, and it was speculated that 2023 would see the release of an expansion to Modern Warfare 2 instead. However, Activision ultimately decided to pursue a full, premium release. The upcoming game has been confirmed by Activision, and there are rumors suggesting that it will be titled Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, building upon the foundation of the aforementioned expansion.

While the specific release date is still unknown, Call of Duty titles historically launch in late October or early November. However, during the FTC vs. Microsoft hearing overseen by Federal Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley, a potential slip-up occurred. The judge mentioned that this year's Call of Duty game is expected to release in November, which indicates that another October release can likely be ruled out. Interestingly, the official Call of Duty Twitter account swiftly responded to this revelation by tweeting a pair of eyeball emojis. Although this response could be related to any number of things, given the timing, it has sparked speculation that it was in reference to Judge Corley's accidental disclosure.


There are rumors circulating that the unveiling of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will take place in August. Traditionally, the series has been revealed in May or June, aligning with summer gaming events. However, it appears that Activision has chosen a shorter marketing cycle for this installment. This strategy has been employed in the past for titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Vanguard, which had tumultuous development periods. This shift in timing could be a deliberate move to provide Sledgehammer Games, the development team, with more time to refine the game before its public reveal, ensuring a polished experience for players.
