Jason Schreier corroborates as well; what happened was: Treyarch's game was planned for 2023. Early last year, they decided to delay Treyarch's game to 2024 and fill in the blanks with more MW stuff from Sledgehammer. And at some point they decided to frame it as a full release. Also - it’s a continuation of MW2s story. Developed by Sledgehammer games, it’s understood that the title is a huge collaborative project across all of Activision’s Call of Duty studios. The game will have the standard 2 weekend beta, a full marketing campaign and early access campaign similar to MWII.
