Back to World War 2?
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be 2021’s Call of Duty game, and Activision has confirmed that it will be releasing on PS5 and PS4 this year.
The company, which is currently getting ripped to shit online (and rightfully so,) had its investor relations call where the publisher spoke about the upcoming Call of Duty game, confirming the release is set for Q4 2021. So sometime between now and December 31st, but more than likely in October/November.
According to Activision’s president and COO Daniel Alegre, Call of Duty: Vanguard will take place in a “setting that our fans know and love” and that it’ll ship with an “incredible amount of content” that includes a single-player campaign, the series’ famed multiplayer, and of course, the fan-favourite Zombies mode.
So, when will Activision and Sledgehammer actually announce the game? In previous years, the annual Call of Duty announcement would come by April or May and then it would be a solid five-month hype train with regular trailers and teases of betas. This year is a little different with the game still not being officially announced as of yet.
Activision’s other president, Rob Kostich, said that “development is coming along really well and we’re going to be sharing those details with the community very soon.”
Expect an announcement soon, most likely with a tie-in event for the free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone, which Activision has “exciting plans” for, with some significant updates to come later this year.
