Call of Duty Vanguard reportedly being announced soon, leaked images reveal Open Beta plans

Written by Chad Norton on Thu, Aug 12, 2021 10:59 AM

Like death and taxes, a new Call of Duty game every year is inevitable, and so far there have only been rumors regarding the next title to come out this year. However, according to some new reports and even some leaked images, it looks like we might be getting an official reveal soon along with an Open Beta.

Call of Duty: Vangaurd is reportedly the next COD game to launch later this year. Some reputable leakers have come out to say that the official reveal will happen a week from now on August 19th. Plus, some images have leaked revealing plans for an Open Beta and multiple editions with some exclusive in-game items.

The original leak came from Twitter user @NEXTGEN_ishere, who’s tweet has since been deleted. However, everyone’s favorite FPS leaker Tom Henderson (who accurately leaked many details about the upcoming Battlefield 2042) claims that they have corroborated the information with several independent sources.

Now take that information with a grain of salt for obvious reasons, since Activision has yet to officially announce Call of Duty 2021. However, the next leak comes in the form of some images, which were apparently uncovered in the game files of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War after the Season 5 update.

As you can see, the images seem to confirm a WW2 setting that was rumored a while ago, and also seemingly confirms there will be multiple editions of the game (surprise, surprise). What is interesting though is one of the images mentions Early Access to an Open Beta:

Other than that, there’s not much else we know about the next Call of Duty game. Some leakers have mentioned there will be some remastered maps from Call of Duty: World at War, though it is currently unknown which ones. Plus, Treyarch is supposedly helping Sledgehammer Games with development.

If the rumors are true, then it is likely we’ll see an official reveal in Call of Duty Warzone, much like how Black Ops Cold War was revealed last year. With the launch of Vanguard you can also expect a brand new map in Warzone, which is reportedly significantly larger than the current Verdansk map.

Either way, it looks like we’ll have to wait until next week for the official reveal, if these rumors are true. Though we are more inclined to believe it given the reputable sources and leaked images which seem legitimate. Again, take it with a grain of salt though.

What do you think? Are you excited for Call of Duty: Vanguard? Are you interested in another WW2 setting? How could this affect the current Call of Duty games and Warzone? Let us know your thoughts!

Yes and WWII but only when there's a lenghty singleplayer campaign with good narrative and story.


I do respect other ones choices but I'm still from the era when WWII games were popular and I just can't get enough of them

The problem is that Sledgehammer was supposed to have a CoD game last year, but they screwed up big time and instead in the last 6-7 months before the release of Black Ops Cold War they were assigned to help Black Ops Cold war be rushed out in 2020 instead of 2021.


And now chances are that they will not have a properly ready product by november this year.

There should be no call of duty this year, period.


Also my favorite settings for shooters in general are:



  1. post-Cold War

  2. Modern

  3. Cold War(more vietnamese than korean, but both are great)

  4. WW2

  5. Futuristic

  6. WW1

  7. pre-WW1

Same and I don't want it to be bad because people will leave the previous two to play it instead, just for being new.
