New images and details have apparently been leaked for Call of Duty: Vanguard. Datamining of the Season 5 update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone seems to contain files related to the next entry of the Call of Duty franchise. It has been rumored this next title is set in World War II, and that an upcoming open beta is likely on the horizon.
Of course, Activision has taken swift action and issued DMCA takedowns of these leaks, but you might still be able to catch a few images of Call of Duty: Vanguard on social media platforms, like Twitter.
The datamined files point to Vanguard having three different editions, with some granting early access to the open beta, double XP, and battle tier bonuses. There is also a cross-gen version, which is charging an upgrade fee for players wanting to move to the next consoles when they can finally migrate.
The full reveal is reportedly set to happen on August 19th, a mere six days away. It also seems that the official Twitter account for Call of Duty poked fun at these rumors and leaks, with a tweet that just says, “Incoming.”
Of course, this reveal comes at a time when Activision Blizzard is dealing with the lawsuit from the State of California, an employee walkout, and even a shareholder lawsuit. Several high-profile departures have happened on Blizzard’s side, including Blizzard President J. Allen Brack, global human resources head Jesse Meschuck, and Diablo 4 direct Luis Barriga, just to name a few.
