As if there was any doubt left, Activision has officially announced that this year’s Call Of Duty is called Vanguard and is set in WW2.
The last set of leaks made it very obvious, but it’s now been confirmed that Call Of Duty: Vanguard is real and is set during the Second World War.
The teaser trailer from Activision uses the same artwork as the leak, with four characters and the spoken tagline ‘Whatever we do, we do it together’ and the written one of ‘See them rise’. The former suggests an emphasis on co-op, although that’s not actually something that’s been rumoured before.
Exactly what those phrases are meant to allude to is unclear but the images in the trailer seem to be fairly obviously based around the Russian Front, North Africa, the Pacific theatre, and possibly the Western Front.
There’s no official description of the game from Activision but the first scene of the trailer is clearly set in Russia and while the second one’s desert could technically be a number of places there are long standing rumours that one of the game’s focuses will be on special forces – which would famously include the SAS in North Africa.
The third scene, of a wooded area in German territory, is the most ambiguous but is very probably somewhere on the Western Front, while judging by the beaches and crashed aircraft the fourth scene seems to be somewhere in the Pacific theatre.
Although some Call Of Duty games have followed a single squad, such as 2017’s Call Of Duty: WW2, most have featured multiple locations and characters – which certainly seems to be the set-up here.
When is the Call Of Duty: Vanguard reveal?
You’ll know more when the game is officially revealed on Thursday, August 19 at 6.30pm BST during an in-game Call Of Duty: Warzone event. Something that was already leaked by Sony.
If things follow the same pattern as last year there’ll also be further teases over the next few days, with players already reporting being killed by an unknown new character in Warzone.
Warzone’s map will eventually change, or be replaced by, one based around Vanguard, although exactly how much detail Activision will go into on that this week remains to be seen.
