E3 2021 is just around the corner but Activision won’t reveal any information about the upcoming Call of Duty. Video Games Chronicles, who previously did business with COD, has shared a report stating that this edition will be titled Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard or Call of Duty: Vanguard. It will be revealed later in 2021 through a similar in-event game hosted for CoD Black Ops: Cold War.
This decision may disappoint all Call of Duty enthusiasts but VGS also has some good news for them. VGS states that Activision will sort out their Warzone situation this year. Although the Cold War, only received a somewhat limited Verdansk refresh after a lengthy wait, the Vanguard reportedly, will get an entirely new island map that gets its inspiration fromWorld War II’s Pacific Theatre. Sources state the map to have a much larger area compared to Verdansk. Vehicles will also be provided to ease commute across the map. Luckily, the new map will be ready around the launch of Vanguard.
The news might be exaggerated but VGC’s CoD sources are accurate. In case you are not aware of the Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard, Sledgehammer Games has been developing the game for almost 2 years. The name indicates that it is a WWII-themed game but rumors suggest it might be based on after the war during 1950 with an alternate-history timeline possibly in play. However, VGC states that the game plot will focus on the founding of the modern US Special Forces. A process that largely began in the 50s, so the timeline makes sense.
In other news, Activision has confirmed a new premium Call of Duty from Sledgehammer. The new edition will launch this holiday season.
