The mode for Vanguard is being developed by its original creator Treyarch, rather than Sledgehammer Games, who is developing the multiplayer and campaign. Activision has said it is both set before Black Ops Cold War and a “franchise-first crossover,” as it will continue the story set up therein.
Call Of Duty zombies will provide “continuity from a lore standpoint” while still “innovating on the core gameplay loop”. Little else is officially known about the mode, but the inclusion of demons is definitely an unexpected twist for the series.
The writers behind Call Of Duty: Vanguard have also said that they want to make two sequels to the game. “We came into this process saying, ‘how do we make the iconic CoD characters?’ because you don’t really have that in Call of Duty right now,” said writer Sam Maggs.
Interestingly, the reveal time and date for this zombies mode is exactly the same as the one for the Hazard Zone mode in Battlefield 2042. That is expected to show off the last of the three online modes for the multiplayer focused title, which could be somehwart similar to a Battle Royale game.
