It looks as though the barely-a-secret Call of Duty: Vanguard will officially get a reveal this week via the series’ battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone.
Promotional art for the reveal has been spotted on the PlayStation Store by Charlie Intel. Tiles on the console’s storefront claim a reveal will take place this Thursday, August 19 within Call of Duty Warzone. Elsewhere, other CoD content creators have also posted teases, and the game’s official social media accounts even posted very brief snippets of video referencing earlier leaks.
Perhaps the biggest of these is in CoD Warzone itself. Known CoD 2021 writer—Sam Maggs—retweeted a clip of a winning team member being suddenly picked off during their escape. The sequence then reveals the shooter is dressed in a distinctly WW2-era uniform.
Call of Duty: Vanguard first had its name and setting leaked via several corrobrated reports back in March. Studio Sledgehammer Games confirmed it would be leading development on the title. A reveal has seemed imminent for a few days, with files directly referencing the new title surfacing in the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone updates last week.
We certainly don’t have long to find out. Expect to hear a lot more on Call of Duty: Vanguard following the reveal at 6:30pm UK time on Thursday, August 19. And of course, we’ll have a round-up of the need-to-know info not long after.
