Yesterday it was reported across multiple outlets that Call of Duty 2021 may sacrifice its multiplayer experience in favor of the continued development of Warzone. The rumors come from Jeff Grubb, a well-known video game insider, although he personally stated that these reports were shaky, at best, and should be seen as nothing more than rumors.
The vague idea behind the rumors is: It’s clear that Call of Duty 2021 multiplayer game is so bad that the release would be nothing but a suicide for Sledgehammer Games, the studio that worked on Call of Duty: WW2. If anyone remembers anything about that game, it had very poor multiplayer at launch anyway, including split screen bugs, server issues, and matchmaking.
While all of this is happening with Call of Duty 2021, the Call of Duty developers have been working hard to bring content to Warzone. If all of this is true … well, that’s great news for DICE and Battlefield 6.
It’s happening again. I don’t know anything about Call of Duty. If I watched the video, I’d say I’ve heard some indirect rumors and cannot confirm them. https://t.co/qqpbMRlx2U

Everyone knows about the ongoing conflict between Call of Duty and Battlefield, two giants of this kind, and games that usually offer completely different gaming experiences. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare She tried her hand in large-scale battles with the Ground Warfare mode, but didn’t come close to the size of Battlefield.
Likewise, Battlefield has attempted to recreate the success of Warzone and other Battle Royales with its BR mod Firestorm, Like the rest Battlefield VIt was not well received.
If this is the first year in decades that Call of Duty does not include a multiplayer mode at launch, it gives Battlefield the space it needs to dominate the FPS market in late 2021. There will be no competition.
The hype around Battlefield 6 has reached a feverish level. With the news that several huge studios are working on the game (DICE, DICE LA, Criterion, etc.), the fact that there has been very little news about the franchise in the past two years, and nothing exciting is happening with FPS games at the moment, Fans of the franchise (and newcomers alike) are looking forward to seeing what Battlefield 6 has to offer to the table.
Whether or not Battlefield 6 can deliver on its promises and rumors circulating about the game is something that has yet to be seen. However, if there is no multiplayer in the next Call of Duty then the battle may actually be won, no matter how good the game is.
