At the moment, the future of the Call of Duty series is uncertain due to factors external to the franchose. While we already know that a new premium game is releasing this year, the pending acquisition of Activision Blizzard could bring changes of direction. Microsoft has been striking deals with companies like Nintendo and Nvidia to get the franchise on the Switch and on Geforce Now.
This means that the franchise could reach whole groups of new users with its future iterations, but it all depends on whether the deal goes through. Microsoft and Activision expect to close the acquisition by June 30, but regulators have been dragging their feet instigated by rival Sony, which appears to be determined to block the acquisition at all costs, having refused agreements similar to the one offered to Nintendo. We'll have to wait and see.
