According to VGC, one sport we gained’t be seeing is the brand new Call of Duty sport scheduled to be launched this yr. Instead, Call of Duty: Vanguard is extra prone to be revealed by an in-game occasion in Warzone later this summer time. This would observe the identical reveal sample that Black Ops Cold War had in 2020 with an in-game reveal occasion in Warzone.
Sledgehammer Games is in control of this yr’s Call of Duty sport and the title is predicted to incorporate a marketing campaign, multiplayer modes, and zombies. Vanguard will supposedly return to World War II with missions specializing in the fashionable allied particular forces in Europe and the Pacific. This means any tie-in might want to have an analogous time interval. Warzone‘s Verdansk has recently gone back in time to the 80s for the start of Season 3, featuring a revised Verdansk, but the Vanguard plans will reportedly take Warzone even further back in time to World War II, with an even more significant map overhaul to coincide with the game’s launch.
The deliberate mixture of Warzone and Vanguard has reportedly been a very long time within the making. The result’s a “significant amount of content” for the free-to-play battle royale title. This time there can be a very new Vanguard map that’s timed to reach on the similar time Vanguard is launched. Rumored to be the “largest and most ambitious to date”, it will likely be set within the Pacific and is “significantly larger” than Verdansk. There will even be new automobiles to assist gamers address the sheer dimension of the map.
The non-appearance of the brand new Call of Duty sport at E3 or Summer Games Fest shouldn’t be an excessive amount of of a shock. Activision has all the time most popular to have a stand-alone reveal occasion for their new COD video games. Vanguard remains to be because of be launched this yr regardless of earlier studies of disastrous development. Activision is now within the means of recruiting 2,000 more developers to assist triple the dimensions of the numerous Call of Duty groups, which embrace virtually every internal studio on the writer now engaged on the franchise.
