Following rumors last month that Call of Duty 2021 will be set during World War 2, and once again be developed by Sledgehammer Games (the devs behind Call of Duty: WWII), a new rumor has surfaced today stating that COD 2021 is tentatively titled “WWII: Vanguard.”
This latest rumor comes from reliable leaker (and MP1st friend), ModernWarzone who states that this working title will be changed in the future, and they also confirm that yes, Sledgehammer Games is indeed the studio tasked to make this year’s COD.
It also states tthat this year’s Call of Duty game will be set during the 1950’s, which is kinda odd given World War 2 ended in 1945. Having said that, the report states that “parts of the game” such as cutscenes take place during the 1950’s, which could mean that it’s a flashback story from a World War 2 vet? Or maybe it’s set in The Korean War which started around that time? Or maybe it’s another timeline as well?
Same as any rumor, take this with a grain of salt since none of the info here has been verified by Activision or Sledgehammer. However, given our trust in the leaker, this is why you’re seeing it published on the site.
Would you play Call of Duty 2021 set in WW2? Or would you rather have one that’s set in more modern times?
