Annual Call of Duty games will still be released despite free-to-play entries

Call of Duty fans have received a new premium title every year since 2005. The series has recently stepped into the free-to-play world, however, with the Call of Duty Mobile game and the reportedly soon-to-be-released Warzone battle royale mode.

But Activision confirmed these new entries won’t affect the annual premium releases, according to a report from VGC. Instead, they’ll be used to attract new players and older players who may have abandoned the series.

Call of Duty has a rotating cast of developers who each take turns developing a title. Most recently, Modern Warfare was developed by Infinity Ward, and Black Ops 4, which came before MW, was developed by Treyarch. This cycle for each developer allows a title to be released every year for fans to enjoy. Recently, Call of Duty has released a free-to-play mobile game and the upcoming Warzone battle royale will likely be a free standalone mode.

The main titles released annually will still be the focus of the series, however. The free-to-play modes will act as a “third pillar” alongside these releases.
