There are only a handful of franchises out there that come out with a new game every year. Adding a new title to a video game series on a yearly basis requires a lot of dedication and a fanbase strong enough to follow the franchise wherever it goes.

Call of Duty is one of these few franchises, and the series continues to be a strong presence in the first-person shooter genre for almost two decades now. After hitting the markets in 2003 for the first time, Call of Duty gathered one of the largest gaming communities in the world around it.

The series became the childhood franchise of a generation, and players who grew up with the series come back to each new title every year when it releases around fall.

How many CoD games are there?

As of now, counting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, there are a total of 22 Call of Duty games in the main series.

In addition to the titles that were a part of the main series, CoD also came out with other games. There have been console exclusives like Finest Hour, The Big Red One, and The War Collection, and mobile titles like Call of Duty: Mobile and Warzone Mobile.

Aside from the one-year gap between the first two CoD titles, the series has never gone through a year without a new addition, and 2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the series.
