The release date for CoD: Vanguard is set for November.
The unveiling of Call of Duty: Vanguard may skip this year’s E3. According to reports, the next Call of Duty game will most likely be announced in the same way as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was, through an in-game event in Call of Duty: Warzone.
Warzone was still a relatively young game when Black Ops Cold War was published last year. Perhaps as a result of this, the integration of one game into the other did not happen as intended. Weapons had to be rebalanced, and the Verdansk map was only released a few months after Cold War, but everything was finally rectified.
Now with Vanguard coming later this year, Activision plans to do a similar integration with Warzone. With this, the free-to-play CoD game will be transitioning its setting to World War II, bringing a new map, vehicles, and weapons.
While Call of Duty is returning to the Second World War, Battlefield is returning to the future, as revealed in this announcement trailer.
Sledgehammer Games’ latest Call of Duty shooter will employ the same engine as Warzone. Vanguard, like previous Call of Duty games, will have a single-player narrative, multiplayer, and zombie modes.
The backdrop will be World War II Europe and the Pacific Ocean area, and it will relate the founding tale of the present allied Special Forces. Vanguard will be released on PC and consoles later this year, in November.
