Artwork purportedly from Call of Duty: Vanguard appears to have been uncovered by dataminers in files for the next Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update.
As reported by Charlie Intel (and spotted by Video Games Chronicle), the images appear to showcase official artwork for the game. They also indicate there’ll be three editions, including a Standard Edition, a Cross-Gen bundle and an Ultimate Edition. Additional artwork posted to Twitter appears to show bonus content for these editions including an Early Access Open Beta.
Activision Blizzard are currently in the process of issuing copyright claims and takedown requests on the images, as you’d expect. However, the name Call of Duty: Vanguard was previously reported as the next entry in the long-running series back in March. Those reports first revealed the game’s World War II setting, which the images also seem to confirm.
Back in May, Sledgehammer Games confirmed it was leading development on the next Call of Duty title. It said it was “excited to be leading the charge on Call of Duty this year and can’t wait to share more”. While no formal announcement or confirmation has been made yet, it seems like one may be imminent. Once we hear any official word on Call of Duty: Vanguard, we’ll let you know.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War‘s newest update—Season 5—is set to go live later today and will include a new Among Us inspired Double Agent multiplayer mode.
