This year's Call of Duty game is seemingly set in the WW2 era once again, at least that's what the fresh rumour suggests. The game is reportedly codenamed Vanguard
Call of Duty 2021 is yet to be officially announced but thanks to reliable insiders, we know that Sledgehammer Games are behind the project, the same studio that brought us Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and the more recent Call of Duty WW2.
Earlier rumours suggested that the game would be some kind of a WW2 title once again and today, we have a strong source, claiming the same. According to Call of Duty insider ModernWarzone, the game is indeed developed by Sledgehammer Games and will be set during WW2. The working title is currently Call of Duty WW2: Vanguard.
"Per Sources, Call of Duty 2021 is Tentatively Titled WWII: Vanguard. This is clearly a code name/working title and will be changed in the future, but this is our first look at the potential title of the next entry for Call of Duty. As we previously reported, the game is being primarily developed by Sledgehammer Games," ModernWarzone report.
The same source previously suggested that the game would be set in the 1950s, potentially covering the Korean War. Also, it's possible that Sledgehammer Games are exploring an alternative timeline, where WW2 did not end in 1945. Of course, this is just speculation at the moment, so definitely don't take it with certainty.
The next Call of Duty title should launch later this year on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
