A Call of Duty leaker revealed that Black Ops Cold War studio Treyarch is developing a free-to-play CoD title for 2023. This would be the franchise’s third F2P game, following Warzone and CoD Mobile.
After the success of Fortnite, Warzone, and other free-to-play titles that depend on microtransactions for their profits, it’s no surprise that the industry is embracing F2P.
With reports that CoD 2023 will be delayed, gamers have been wondering what to expect from Activision in the meantime. This should mark the first time in franchise history that CoD won’t have an annual release, or so we thought.
Now the leaker “TheGhostOfHope” has poured some fuel on the fire of speculation. A third F2P game was reported back in February 2022 and GhostOfHope claims it will be a new Treyarch title.

Back in February, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier stated that 2023 “will feature a new free-to-play game.” This would come alongside the franchise’s already planned F2P titles: Warzone 2 and the already existing CoD Mobile.
GhostOfHope has now added a new information package. According to the leaker, Treyarch are the ones tasked with this new F2P game and are “currently working on it”.
With GhostOfHope also noting that Treyarch’s next main title is still slated for 2024, that means they have their hands full. the The developers just released a Black Ops Cold War update and they’re still managing both Vanguard ranked matches and Zombies.
It remains uncertain what their F2P title will be, but the studio is clearly entrusted with much of CoD’s present and future. The team is unlikely to do an F2P blackout as Warzone 2 will be available, and when Your 2024 game is another entry in the Black Ops series then this seems like a very different outing.
Currently, most speculation is drifting towards a second mobile CoD, or as many were hoping, a free PVE zombies game.
