COD 2021: Since the Call of Duty franchise was launched by Activision, they have come up with an update to the game every year. Call of Duty 2021 might not be any different, either. Except 2004, every year’s update has made a total of 18 titles including the popular BR game COD: Warzone.
The franchise took up more when it came into the competitive setting and the advent of eSports. To maintain the hype for this year, popular eSports insider Tom Henderson has revealed what looks like the new date for the 2021 COD title.

This chart shows the ‘expected’ release date of this year’s COD update, which is coming around November 12, 2021. Before 2020, Activision had a record of releasing new COD titles by August. However, the pandemic forced Activision to put a halt to the game by a few months, and this year could follow the same pattern. Black Ops Cold War released on November 13 in 2020.
Tom’s predictions have been correct on several occasions, and what he says looks believable. To be taken with a pinch of salt, no “leaks” are confirmed till Activision says something. After this chart caught the eyes of many, Tom issued a clarification in a Tweet.
As I covered in yesterday's stream, this is not a "leak" and is a well educated guess based on development times. If SHGames are the next developers, I'm confident the title will be decent. However, if it's IW, I'd expect it to be another incomplete title like BOCW.

There is no confirmation on the release date of COD 2021, but one can only hope that Activision will be able to deliver and take things to the next level.
