Call of Duty Needs a ‘Revitalization’ Says Former Infinity Ward Dev

Everyone knows by now how the Call of Duty cycle works. Three development studios (Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Sledgehammer Games) under Activision, cycle every year to push out a new Call of Duty in early November. Most of the time, the game gets solid reviews among critics, and then goes on to be the best-selling title of the year despite releasing so late. It’s a cycle that has been repeated almost to perfection for the last 15 years, and coming into 2022, shows no signs of slowing down. However, one former Infinity Ward developer sees the series in a different light, claiming it needs a major “revitalization.”
