Call of Duty 2024: Developer, Settings, Engine, Concept Art Leak, More

Even though Modern Warfare 2 is coming in 2022, there are already major leaks and rumors surrounding Call of Duty 2024. It’s expected to be the next Black Ops, so here’s everything we know about the next one. Call of Duty, including its developers, tuning, engine, and more.


If the reports prove true, 2023 should be the first year without premium CoD gaming since 2005’s Call of Duty 2. This means that after 2022’s Modern Warfare 2 and its leaked campaign, multiplayer, Spec Ops, and DMZ mode, the next CoD game will be released in 2024.

Although very far away, leaks and rumors are already emerging about the entry of 2024, which should be the next in the Black Ops series. Here’s everything we know so far, including developers, settings, time period, engine, and more.

Call of Duty 2024 Developers

It’s all but confirmed that Treyarch will be developing Call of Duty 2024, which is expected to be the next title in the Black Ops series.

Treyarch’s return was first reported by Bloomberg after Microsoft’s acquisition announcement, but it would also make sense with Infinity Ward and Treyarch usually taking turns taking releases.

Call of Duty 2024 Parameters and Period

Incredibly, concept art for Call of Duty 2024 was reportedly found in Warzone Mobile game files, giving us an indication of the game’s setting and time period.

Call of Duty dataminer “Reality” discovered that Warzone Mobile files had a string for “t10_usa_mogadishu”. Players immediately speculated that this was referring to the Battle of Mogadishu, also known as the Black Hawk Down incident.

This battle took place in Somalia in 1993, meaning the next Black Ops could feature the United Nations intervention in Somalia in the early 90s.

However, in September 2021, renowned industry insider Tom Henderson claimed that “Treyarch’s next game is also semi-futuristic (boots to the ground)”.

It’s entirely possible that, like Black Ops 2 and Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty 2024 will take place in different time periods. But Activision or Treyarch are unlikely to provide any clarification any time soon.

Call of Duty 2024 concept art leaked

Along with the channel hinting at the Battle of Mogadishu and Modern Warfare 2 map images, Reality claimed to have discovered CoD 2024 concept art in Warzone Mobile game files.

This concept art shows what appear to be two of the maps currently in development. The first is a map codenamed “Stealth” that appears to feature a US military base in a desert area.

Those familiar with their military history might recognize what looks like the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk stealth bomber in the hangar, providing further evidence of a 1990s setting.

The second map is codenamed “Pillage” and shows soldiers entering what appears to be a war-torn mansion or palace.

With Call of Duty 2024 still in early development, it’s possible these designs could be scrapped or heavily modified before launch.

Call of Duty Engine 2024

Starting with Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2, every future Call of Duty game will be developed under “one unified engine” – an advanced version of the IW engine.

Addressing the Washington Post, Call of Duty General Manager Johanna Faries has confirmed that while the next Black Ops will be on the same engine as Modern Warfare 2, it will still be different. They want Treyarch games to look like Treyarch games and MW games to look like Modern Warfare.

Will there be a CoD game in 2023?

Although not yet confirmed by Activision, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported that Activision had delayed Treyarch’s CoD 2023 to CoD 2024, meaning that He should no Call of Duty premium in 2023.

Instead, it’s likely that Modern Warfare 2 will receive two years of support, which will likely translate to twelve seasons of content, bringing new maps, weapons, operators, and more.

However, an Activision spokesperson responded, “We have an exciting slate of premium and free Call of Duty experiences for this year, next year and beyond. Reports on anything else are incorrect.


That’s all we know about the next Call of Duty game so far! Stay tuned, as we expect even more leaks and official reveals throughout 2022 and 2023.
