With that spectacular announcement, Battlefield 2042 It has been one of the star games of the Summer Game Fest (technically it is not part of E3, despite the coincidence of dates). Call of Duty’s great rival in war games is due out in October and will be intergenerational, although it will be most appealing on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X. But what about Call of Duty this year?
Don’t wait for the announcement of the new Call of Duty for Summer Game Fest or E3. Activision hasn’t revealed its communication plans around the new game due out this year, but according to VGC, it plans to reveal it later this summer, via an in-game free to play event. Call of Duty Warzone.
According to leaks, which VGC also corroborates, the premium Call of Duty from 2021 will be called Call of Duty Vanguard, and will be set in World War II. Developed by Sledgehammer, it will focus on the birth of Special Forces, and will feature campaign, multiplayer and zombies set in both the war in Europe and the Pacific.
Precisely, having had more time this time allowed Sledgehammer to create much more content for Warzone, which would change its map of Verdansk for a new, significantly larger map set in the Pacific, with the weapons and vehicles of the time. The collaboration between Warzone and Black Ops Cold War came late, and the Verdansk 84 map did not offer too drastic changes.
The reason is that Infinity Ward (those of Black Ops) were working on a Blackout 2 mode, which was canceled when seeing the huge success of Warzone. Today a video has been leaked of what would have been his map, in the Ural Mountains.
Although the new Call of Duty 2021 game will not be announced, Activision does have an announcement planned tomorrow Thursday at the Summer Game Fest: the presentation of season 4 of Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
