Call of Duty Vanguard

We are now close to the reveal of Call of Duty Vanguard. We are not prey to summer delusions, but it is Activision itself to tell us, with a first teaser on Warzone that anticipates the reveal. And this is a small, but full-bodied anticipation, which would also confirm some rumors seen in the past regarding the setting of the game.

Let's go in order: over the last few hours Activision has updated its Battle Royale, or Warzone, with a new cutscene in case of victory. In the video, released via Twitter and found a little further down, team members can be seen boarding the helicopter, when suddenly one of them is hit by a female sniper. It could be a coincidence, if it weren't for the fact that the military wears a World War II uniform, which definitely clashes with the modern setting of Verdansk. It is the first, unequivocal teaser of Call of Duty Vanguard, which is rumored to be set in the past compared to the two previous games that debuted in 2019 and 2020.

Waiting for an official reveal, scheduled for the August 19, 2021 according to the latest rumors, Call of Duty Vanguard will also revolutionize the map of Verdansk. This information comes from prolific insider Tim Henderson, who has always been active in first person shooter games. According to Henderson, in fact, the Warzone map will undergo an important change, with a rework that will transform it in a very similar way to a territory of the Second World War. A radical change, for a return to the past of the franchise.

Everything seems ready for the new annual game of the Activision series. The only knot to be solved would be the name: Call of Duty Vanguard is in fact not yet official and there may be surprises during the reveal. Reveal which in fact seems to be one step away, so stay tuned to geekinco for all the news in the pipeline.

Call of Duty: Vanguard reportedly coming this year, per leak

Logos and images from the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise have reportedly leaked on Twitter and Reddit. The game, titled Call of Duty: Vanguard, appears to be 2021’s entry in the series, reports CharlieIntel.

The images come from a data mine of the season 5 update for Black Ops Cold War, which contained the leaked images in its files. The setting appears to be World War II, confirming months’ worth of rumors. Publisher Activision has not officially announced a Call of Duty for 2021, but they are actively issuing takedown notices for reposts of the images.

A variety of Vanguard images were found within Black Ops Cold War‘s files. The game’s key art and logo were found, as were promotional images for a Standard Edition, Ultimate Edition, and Cross-Gen Bundle. According to the leak, the game will have an open beta, with early access and exclusive content available to those who purchase the Ultimate Edition. The content includes a variety of skins and weapons for several of the game’s operators as well as an XP boost.

This is not the first time the Call of Duty franchise has used World War II as a setting: The aptly-named Call of Duty: WWII used the war as a backdrop for its campaign and multiplayer modes in 2017.

The leaks come amid a powerful lawsuit at Activision Blizzard. Former employees have alleged that Activision Blizzard’s upper management created and maintains a hostile “frat boy” workplace culture that disproportionately targets women. Current and former employees have reported sexual harassment and lower pay at the hands of the company’s higher-ups and allege that those who are responsible had not been punished for their actions. The lawsuit is still ongoing.
