Spring is dawning and with it the rumors about this year’s new offshoot of the Call-of-Duty series are increasing again. All signs are condensing that you will end up back in the Second World War.
The Second World War as a popular shooter setting will apparently make a comeback in Call of Duty this year. How Modern Warzone reports, Activision wants to build on the success of the 2017 released and very well received Call of Duty: WWII. Corresponding information was later provided by Eurogamer independently verified and thus seem to be confirmed.
Sledgehammer Games is said to be in charge of this year’s Call of Duty, which is currently called Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard internally. According to Modern Warzone However, this internal name will still be changed and does not yet correspond to the final name under which the new Call of Duty will be available later in autumn 2021. Eurogamer, meanwhile, wants to know that the publisher is willing to stick to Vanguard. So all in all, it’s possible that the new shooter could just as easily be called Call of Duty: Vanguard.
But the story information from is even more interesting Modern Warzone, because the setting in World War II will by no means be historically accurate. Rather, the shooter takes up an alternative timeline in which the war did not end in 1945. The title is therefore also set in the 1950s, in which the Second World War is still ongoing. But here too contradicts Eurogamer
Information about the next Call of Duty is usually leaked in the run-up to the official presentation. Eurogamer himself has always turned out to be one of the first sources with relevant details in the past five years.
As far as the new title is concerned, the integration of the Warzone battle royale mode will certainly remain interesting to watch.
