Update: Activision has now confirmed the existence of Call of Duty: Vanguard with a teaser trailer that gathers together the short videos sent to community members this past weekend. The full reveal will take place inside Battle Royale game Call of Duty: Warzone this Thursday at 6:30pm BST / 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST.
"Be the first to the fight and be rewarded — report to Call of Duty: Warzone and play in any playlist between 9:30 a.m. PT / 12:30 p.m. ET and 10:29 a.m. PT / 1:29 p.m. ET and prepare to participate in a limited-time Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP event before the battle begins."
Original story: Call of Duty: Vanguard will be revealed as part of a live event in Call of Duty: Warzone this Thursday, the PlayStation Store has confirmed. A new tab has been added to the digital marketplace (first spotted by CharlieIntel), confirming the announcement is scheduled for 6:30pm BST / 10:30am PST / 1:30pm EST. Hints handed to community members this past weekend all but confirmed the World War II setting for Vanguard, which will release on both PS5 and PS4.
Strong rumours of a reveal later this week have been swirling for a few days now after a leak confirmed an open beta is planned for the latest title from Sledgehammer Games. At launch, there will be a cross-gen bundle and Ultimate Edition available for purchase alongside the usual versions.
This confirmation means that Vanguard follows in the footsteps of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which was also revealed inside the Battle Royale game towards the end of August. In that particular event, players had to complete a specific set of objectives before rushing to the Stadium point of interest. From there, the reveal trailer played.
The announcement will be the publisher's first big media beat since Activision Blizzard was accused of workplace harassment and sued by the state of California. Since then, figures such as former president J. Allen Brack have left the company.
