The working title for this year’s Call of Duty game is reportedly Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard. This is according to Warzone and Call of Duty fan site Modern Warzone, whose sources have confirmed that the title is in development by Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games. While Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard will primarily be centered around World War II, additional rumors suggest that certain portions of the game will be set after the war in the 1950s.
“This led to tons of speculation over whether or not the next COD title would be set during the Korean War,” Modern Warzone wrote. “While this article confirms it is a WWII title it does not confirm that there are 0 links to the Korean War throughout the game. This rumor currently has to stand, as we can not debunk it. We also wouldn’t expect to see any official sources or developers comment on this leak.”
“It’s entirely possible that Call of Duty is pursuing a new fictitious timeline where World War 2 didn’t end in 1945, but rather continued on in some way shape or manner into the 1950s. We will update you all as soon as we know more about that situation.”
Eurogamer’s sources have corroborated Modern Warzone’s claims that this year’s Call of Duty game will be called Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard, but what it doesn’t agree on is the rumor about it taking place during the 1950s. According to that publication, Vanguard will reportedly be set strictly in a “traditional WW2 setting.”
