Fans awaiting Call Of Duty: Vanguard can end the speculation, as the game appears to have been confirmed for an official reveal event.
According to a screenshot taken from GamesRadar, the PlayStation Store appears to have revealed a Call Of Duty: Vanguard event at 6:30PM BST on August 19. Before this, fans were treated to teasers and in-game hints that the game would be coming.
Sledgehammer Games has been teasing the release for a while now, with Call Of Duty: Warzone cutscenes in which the winning player is killed off just before extraction. The cutscene was purely cosmetic – not affecting experience gains – but strongly hinted at the reveal of Vanguard.
It seems the reveal event is going to take place inside Call Of Duty: Warzone, with Vanguard being teased so much in-game. Sources suggest that the new game will feature a campaign, multiplayer and Zombies mode, and will be set in the European and Pacific theatres of World War 2.
Current speculation is that Vanguard will receive a Q4 2021 release, despite the various legal and HR issues that have unfolded at Activision Blizzard in recent weeks.
After a series of leaks, data mines, and rumours, the official Call Of Duty Twitter poked fun at what’s going on with its own ‘leak’ with Sledgehammer Games also sharing a meme suggesting there’s nothing they can do to stop the incoming wave of leaks.
