Call of Duty Vanguard multiplayer might not be that different from the one in Black Ops Cold War. According to insider Tom Henderson, Vanguard's multiplayer will essentially be Black Ops Cold War 2.0 when it launches.

Rumours about the troubled development of this year's Call of Duty, which is reportedly titled Call of Duty: Vanguard, have been floating around the internet for quite some time. Apparently, every Activision studio are now helping Sledgehammer Games, which are the lead development studio behind the game. 

The rumours also suggested that this could be the first Call of Duty title to be delayed into the next year, in a long long time but it seems the game is still expected in 2021.

According to the latest info from a well-known industry insider Tom Henderson, due to development troubles, Call of Duty Vanguard's multiplayer will basically be a Black Ops Cold War 2.0, without major unique features or changes.

In his latest video , Hendeson states that the reason for this is "because Sledgehammer Games have tried to do a lot of different things with Call of Duty: Vanguard to set it apart from the 2017's Call of Duty WW2 but a lot of these features never made it to fruition, they were cut for whatever reason and instead this is a traditional Call of Duty WW2 title."

Additionally, the insider states that he has heard of eight maps that will be available on launch and that Ground War from Call of Duty Modern Warfare will be returning. With the WW2 theme, we really hope this results in some cool maps and matches since Ground War was one of our favourite modes in Modern Warfare.

Anyway, as always with these leaks and rumours, take them with a dose of scepticism, until we get official confirmation from Activision.
