Excitement is building among Call of Duty enthusiasts as reports suggest that the upcoming series, Call of Duty 2025, is set to be a direct sequel to the fan-favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Known for its diverse eras, from World War II to modern warfare and beyond , the franchise has constantly evolved while maintaining the familiar essence.
In particular, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, released in 2012, went into the future, introducing players to an amazing story set in 2025. This game struck a perfect balance and remains beloved by many fans. Now, anticipation is growing as Insider Gaming and CharlieIntel share insights that Call of Duty 2025 will revisit the world of Black Ops 2, using several features and maps from the beloved predecessor.
The action takes place in the future
The story of Call of Duty 2025 is expected to take place in 2030, just five years after the events of Black Ops 2. Fans can expect the return of familiar characters, facing a new threat after the death of Mendez.
Excitingly, the game is set to include a movement overhaul, revive the pick-10 class system and bring back the popular round-robin zombie mode. In addition, the remastered Black Ops 2 maps will return, adding to the nostalgic feel and introducing new battlefields.
Initially, plans for Call of Duty 2025 included exclusively remastered maps. However, insider reports suggest that community feedback, particularly based on 2023's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, has influenced the change in approach.
The game is set to feature a mix of remastered and all-new maps, giving players a fresh yet familiar gameplay experience. Although details about the game's developer remain unknown, players are wondering if Call of Duty 2025 will adopt a "carryover" system, allowing players to transfer weapons, skins and items between games.
While an insider has hinted that Call of Duty 2025 is a "completely new game," the specifics of the feature have yet to be confirmed. Call of Duty 2024 is expected to be a new game from Treyarch and is speculated to be a Black Ops game based on the Gulf War, perhaps as a direct sequel to Black Ops Cold War.
