Developer Confirms Next Call of Duty Won’t Have Jetpacks

When Treyarch announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 won’t feature any jetpacks prior to its release in 2018, it was largely met with gratitude and this exclusion seems to have served the series well, at least with Black Ops 4 and 2019’s Modern Warfare.

So when a fan took to Twitter in the hope that Treyarch developer David Vonderhaar would confirm that the next Call of Duty will feature jetpacks, he didn’t quite get the answer that he wanted to hear.

The fan asked “you better have jetpacks in the next cod”, and Vonderhaar simply replied “NO.”. However, another fan joined in on the conversation hoping to sway the developers mind on including jetpacks in the next Call of Duty, for which Vonderhaar stated “Such short-term memories. You hung me from the highest branch. No. NO. I have PTSD.

So there you have it, whether you like them or not, it seems the next Call of Duty will not feature any jetpacks.  But one thing’s for sure, a new Call of Duty is guaranteed this year and I am very much looking forward to another game with no jetpacks.
