While the Call of Duty franchise is defined by the Modern Warfare and Black Ops brands, there have been plenty of other entries in the long-running series. Some of these games tell one-and-done stories, such as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s fall of the Atlas Corporation and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s tragic clash between the SCAR and SDF. Other Call of Duty games end on cliffhangers, however, with a few big setups going unexplored to this day.
While some of the following Call of Duty sequels will likely happen, others will not, as not every game that received a cliffhanger conclusion proved popular with fans. Further, some Call of Duty titles that seemingly set up something more released years ago, ensuring that there are no plans in place to go back to them. Still, even the most divisive entries in the franchise have their loyalists, and these communities would surely love to see what would come next if a sequel ever arrived.
Not only does Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s success make it a likely candidate for a sequel, but the 2019 game has already been rumored for a 2022 release. Infinity Ward clearly has more of a story to tell as well, as the conclusion of reboot hyped up the return of Task Force 141. The scene saw Captain Price listing members of his team, with the heroic soldier rebuilding the fan favorite lineup from the original Modern Warfare trilogy. Both an obvious and deserving choice for a sequel, fans will surely be excited when the game's first trailer arrives.
Seeing characters like Soap MacTavish and Simon “Ghost” Riley in the reboot’s more realistic universe would be promising, and it would be interesting to see how much of the old plot was used. Shocking deaths, major twists, and huge battles could be seen happening again, or they may never happen at all in favor of a brand-new narrative. Price could die instead of Soap, and Shepherd could be a loyal ally instead of a heartless traitor. Players not knowing what to expect from the new story is exciting, and seeing their favorite characters involve in the plot only makes the prospect of a follow-up more appealing.
Depending on how Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s next few Seasons of content play out, a sequel may not be necessary. As of now, though, the latest Black Ops game’s story remains unfinished. At the end of the campaign’s canon ending, Perseus’ plan is foiled by the CIA. However, the villain lives to fight another day, with no closure provided regarding the Russian spy’s fate. While it initially seemed like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War would cover this via its multiplayer updates and Call of Duty: Warzone quests, the focus has seemingly turned to a fight between Adler and Stitch.
While a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War campaign DLC would be great to see, it seems unlikely. If multiplayer does not wrap up the topic of Perseus and his escape from the CIA’s clutches, though, the campaign’s ending will remain anticlimactic and unsatisfying. Further, a sequel would likely be needed to finish up the hunt for Perseus. While some fun topics could be covered with a direct follow-up, such as the start of the conflict between Raul Menendez and Frank Woods, players may rather see another era explored by Treyarch. On top of that, there is another Black Ops-related cliffhanger that needs to be addressed.
