Call of Duty: Vanguard hasn’t even been out for a week and there is apparently already talk of a couple of special guest stars being added to the game as skins in the near future. Specifically, the guest stars in question are Marvel’s Captain America and the main character from the Indiana Jones movies.
This comes from Tom Henderson, a renowned insider who has accurately shared information about the Call of Duty series and other games like Battlefield 2042 in the past. Henderson doesn’t share much beyond the inclusion of these characters, only adding that Disney and Activision were in talks about possible partnerships over the summer and that he has seen strings of code suggesting there will be some kind of event.
Considering that Call of Duty: Vanguard is set during WWII, it makes perfect sense to include Captain America and Indiana Jones as unlockable skins. Anyone with a passing knowledge of Marvel should know that Captain America fought the Nazis and Hydra during WWII (one of the most famous comic book covers of all time is him beating Hitler) before being frozen in ice. and wake up today.
Strings of code sent to me by @CoDPerseus_ seem to indicate some kind of event, but it’s unclear on exact details and when the event will be.

This assuming that Call of Duty: Vanguard will feature the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, and not one of his successors like Sam Wilson, who inherited the mantle in both the comics and the Falcon and Winter Soldier TV show on Disney +. As for Indiana Jones, while working as a college professor in film, he was once a military spy who fought in both World Wars, and has regularly faced Nazis during his adventures.
This isn’t the only rumored crossover in the game, either. Earlier this week, a data miner claimed that there will be an anime-themed crossover at some point, namely with Attack on Titan. If true, it is still not entirely clear if any of the anime’s characters will be playable or not or if the Titans themselves will appear as enemies.
While these potential crossovers may be exciting for some, it’s worth remembering that publisher Activision is still in the middle of a lawsuit filed by the state of California in the summer. The company was accused of allowing a toxic work environment to rot, resulting in numerous complaints of harassment, abuse and gender discrimination. Last month, Activision tried to have the lawsuit stopped, but its request was denied.
Call of Duty: Vanguard está disponible para PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One y Xbox Series X / S.
