A CALL of Duty Warzone sequel is in the works but millions may not be able to play it.
The latest reports suggest the free-to-play title will remain on both PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
It’ll be a sigh of relief for PlayStation loyalists who feared they could be left out in the cold after Xbox owner Microsoft’s recent big buyout of COD maker Activision.
But it’s not good news for everyone.
The publisher is apparently focusing on the latest consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series S/X, only, alongside PC.
This means millions still using the PS4 and Xbox One won’t get a look in.
According to notorious insider Tom Henderson, the sequel will be “a completely new game for the better hardware”.
“Current gen and PC only… No past weapon integrations etc,” he tweeted.
He reckons it’ll be out in 2023, so hopefully the chip shortage preventing many from upgrading their console will have eased by then.
The first Call of Duty Warzone has proven to be a massive hit for Activision since its release in 2020.
Last year, the firm revealed that it had more than 100million active players.
The latest development comes as Bloomberg reported that the next three Call of Duty titles will be available on both Xbox and PlayStation.
Four sources claim that Activision had already committed to make the next bunch of games available on Sony’s console before the Microsoft deal came about.
As well as Warzone, this is expected to include a new entry to the Modern Warfare sub-series later this year, and another after that.
PlayStation lovers fear Microsoft could snatch some of the biggest Activision franchises away once the deal goes through.
Those include World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Hearthstone and Diablo.
Earlier this month, the tech giant announced it is buying the video game publisher for a staggering $68.7billion.
