"Semi-futuristic" setting reportedly planned for Call of Duty 2023

It's no secret that Activision plans its Call of Duty games years ahead.

For example, Treyarch's turn in the driver's seat isn't until at least 2023. 

Before then, players will have a chance to play at least two more Call of Duty games. 

There's Sledgehammer's Call of Duty: Vanguard that's scheduled for later this year.

Then there's Infinity Ward's Call of Duty game for 2022. 

Even so, this hasn't stopped leaks and speculation about the 2023 title from popping up. 

Tom Henderson claims that Treyarch's next Call of Duty game will have a "semi-futuristic" setting. 

The popular leaker also adds that the upcoming Call of Duty game will have "boots on the ground". 

Due to Henderson's description, some are suggesting that it will be similar to 2012's Call of Duty: Black Ops II. 

The 2012 iteration is well-loved by fans due to its near-contemporary setting that didn't feature too much tech. 

Black Ops II also had a fun single-player campaign that its 2015 and 2018 sequels didn't have. 

Given the positive reception to Black Ops - Cold War's single-player campaign, it makes sense for Treyarch to go back to the fan-favourite. 

Of course, it's worth noting that this information doesn't come from official sources. 

It should already go without saying, but do take all this with a grain of salt.
