Should future Call Of Duty games place more emphasis on VR?

As many people know Call Of Duty is arguably the most popular first person shooter video game franchise of all-time selling more than 400 million copies worldwide since the series inception back in 2003. Since then the Call Of Duty series has generated more than $27 billion in overall revenue and has become very popular across multiple platforms within the past three generations of gaming. Call Of Duty games have appeared on game systems such as: PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and the Xbox Series X. Prior to the release of Call Of Duty: Vanguard this past year the only installment within the series that really had any kind of VR support was CoD: Infinite Warfare from 2016. There are many hardcore fans of the series who are not too fond of Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare as a game in comparison to other installments of the series. However, the CoD: Infinite Warfare Jackal Assault VR feature was something that many people enjoyed and made for a very unique first-person gaming experience. People were able to access the Jackal Assault feature through the original PSVR available for the PS4 and since then we have not seen to many Call Of Duty titles with virtual reality features. However, it has recently been announced the PS5 will be receiving new updates that will bring VRR support to at least fourteen different titles on that console. It has been confirmed that the two titles that will be receiving VRR support in the future are Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call Of Duty: Vanguard from 2020 & 2021. Even though, virtual reality has yet to explode in popularity emphasis on VR features in future Call Of Duty games could possibly make the game more of an attraction. But seeing how future Call Of Duty games are most likely going to remain exclusively on Xbox consoles due to Activision being owned by Microsoft; its very unlikely it will happen since Microsoft does not care as much about virtual reality as Sony does in relation to video games.
