Call of Duty 2021: Leak of the new shooter episode on

Call of Duty 2021

Slowly but surely the time of the year is dawning when Activision Blizzard normally announces the next episode of the shooter series Call of Duty and shares the first tangible information with the public. This announcement is still pending, but at least a new and interesting note has surfaced recently.

The operators of the BlizzTrack website have made a discovery in the files of the client. It is the logo of a previously unknown or more precisely defined title with the project name "Slipstream". Since this logo was found in close proximity to the Call of Duty 2021 assets, it seems reasonable to assume that there is a direct link to the shooter franchise. In addition, the design of the logo suggests that the next COD episode is actually hidden behind it, which is supposed to take you back into the turmoil of World War II. Call of Duty: Vanguard has always been the name of the next episode. But "Slipstream" is apparently just a project name for internal use at Activision Blizzard and the development studio Sledgehammer Games.

However, you shouldn't take the whole thing at face value, as it could be something completely different. It cannot be ruled out that the publisher is deliberately trying to lure fans on the wrong track. Activision Blizzard has not yet commented on this find. In any case, it shouldn't be long before Activision reveals details about Call of Duty 2021.

Call Of Duty 2021's Code Name May Be Slipstream

The next entry in the Call of Duty series is rumored to be codenamed 'Slipstream.' That's according to @Helba_The_AI, who runs, a site that tracks updates and uploads to Activision Blizzard's storefront,

Helba shared on Twitter that there is what appears to be files related to Call of Duty 2021 that have been uploaded to, alongside logos with the name 'Slipstream.' While Activision Blizzard did confirm that the next Call of Duty is in development with Sledgehammer Games leading, the game has not been officially revealed or given a release date. Sledgehammer assisted with the development of Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War and led development on WWII. The next Call of Duty will also integrate with the Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale.

Helba also tweeted that the next Call of Duty may have an alpha coming soon, based on some text found in's files. Earlier this year it was reported that the next Call of Duty game will be titled Vanguard and would take place during World War II. While the Vanguard title may be the official name of the game, the Slipstream title could possibly be used to secretly test the game or to avoid the official name of the game from being leaked.

It was also reported that the game would be using the IW8 engine, which was used for Modern Warfare and Warzone. Black Ops Cold War used its own engine and Warzone did not swap to the Cold War engine when it released, so Activision Blizzard might be trying to have a more unified Call of Duty experience across all titles moving forward.

While the code name and logo are not confirmed to be real, neither provides much information about the upcoming title. Activision Blizzard will most likely reveal the new title in the coming months, as Black Ops Cold War was revealed in late August last year, before releasing on November 13.
