What would the release of a new video game be without tons of rumors? Probably thought so Modern Warzone and has fiery fueled the rumor mill. According to them, the new title will be called Call of Duty WW2: Vanguard and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games. Vanguard is said to be set in the 1950s, in an alternate timeline in which World War II did not end in 1945.

Meanwhile, too Eurogamer reported to have their say and has confirmed some parts of the leak, but denied some. According to them, Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard is the real working title of the game and is also being developed by Sledgehammer Games.

“Modern Warzone has reported that this year’s Call of Duty is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and is slated for release in late 2021. Eurogamer sources have confirmed these rumors.”

Furthermore, Eurogamer writes that the title does not play in an alternative timeline, but will have a traditional WW2 setting.

“Eurogamer doesn’t see this detail as being entirely correct, Vanguard will have a traditional WW2 setting.”

What exactly Eurogamer means by “not quite right” is difficult to say. Could 1950 be involved in any way?

It should be noted that both Eurogamer and Modern Warzone statements are nothing but rumors, although both sides are fairly trustworthy sources. Eurogamer points out in their article that they have verified rumors about new Call Of Duty parts over the past five years. When exactly Vanguard will finally play, we will probably only find out from official statements from Activision. The publisher has at least already confirmed that a new Call of Duty will appear this year.
