Call of Duty: chronological order of release of all the games in the saga

Call of Duty will not have a new main game in 2023, according to Bloomberg this Wednesday. According to the information, the Californian studio Treyarch, authors of the Black Ops series and the recent Vanguard, are experiencing development problems and need more time; presumably until 2024.


Activision will thus break the tradition of annual publications of Call of Duty started in 2005 and it will be, therefore, the first time in eighteen years that the shops do not have in its shelves a new premium episode of one of the most mediatic intellectual properties in the sector. In this article we will review the chronological order of release of all Call of Duty deliveries since its inception and which teams have been in charge of its development.


No Call of Duty in 2023; Activision plans additional content for Call of Duty 2022

There are many consequences of this fact; beyond the strictly anecdotal. Despite the reviews, better or worse, the latest Call of Duty is every year one of the best-selling titles of the year, regardless of platform and format. Therefore, the annual turnover in territories such as the United States can be negatively affected in absolute terms, since the turnover of each installment of CoD is higher than the sum of many smaller titles.


Bloomberg anticipates in its report that Activision’s plan is to offer very extensive content coverage for Call of Duty 2022, developed by Infinity Ward with a new graphics engine and a “next generation” experience with notable changes to the formula. Infinity Ward will also be the team in charge of Call of Duty: Warzone 2, also planned for this year. This decision, made independently of Activision, seeks to make up for the lack of a 2023 delivery with this “Year 2” delivery of this course.

This is the chronological order of release of all Call of Duty titles from 2003 to now, when we are on the verge of its 20th anniversary.
