Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard Reveal Date Set for Later This Week
It looks like the wait for official information regarding the next Call of Duty mainline game is almost over, if a recent leak is to be believed. It seems that the Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard reveal date has accidentally been revealed a little earlier than intended, with news coming later this week.
PlayStation Store Leaks Call of Duty Vanguard
The leak this time around comes from a rather official source, with none other than PlayStation itself (via CharlieIntel). The PlayStation Store on PS4/PS5 as well as the mobile app for Android and iOS have leaked the first bit of official information regarding the next Call of Duty game.
As previously rumored, it seems that the game is going to be called Call of Duty Vanguard, dropping the WWII nomenclature, but still be set in the World War II era. While the store listing for the game does not show much about what it will offer in it, it does leak the reveal date for it.
The Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard reveal date will happen later this week and offer the first look at what the new game is going to be like. The image on the PlayStation Store even shows that this is the worldwide reveal of the new Call of Duty game and it will happen inside of Warzone.
This is similar to what happened last year with Black Ops Cold War, which was Activision’s worst kept secret at the time, too. This time around, the Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard is set for just a few days from now at the time of writing this, so we will not have to wait too much longer for info.
Warzone Vanguard Reveal Date Leaks
The Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard is set for this Thursday, August 19, at 10:30 am PT. It will happen inside of Warzone where players who are in that game will likely be able to experience an in-game event of some kind that will conclude with the official reveal of the next Call of Duty title.
At the time of writing this, it is worth noting that Activision has yet to officially confirm this Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard reveal date, but leaks do not get much more believable than this. It stands to reason that PlayStation would know about this early, especially as the platform with the exclusive deals every year with Call of Duty.
Unfortunately, little else other than the Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard announcement date is revealed in this leak. We do not see anything else in the store other than the logo for the game, so there are no screenshots, trailers, or other information that we can glean from it.
Fortunately, the wait to find out more is not too far away as the reveal of Vanguard will happen this Thursday in Warzone at a decent time that is great for many around the world to check it out live as it happens. We recommend that players who are interested in being part of the event live try to get into the game early on that day.
What to Expect From the Reveal
For those of us in the US, that might be a little early in the morning/afternoon to boot up the battle royale title, but we do recommend heading into the game at least 30 minutes prior to the reveal time, so around 10 am PT would probably be best.
This gives you plenty of time to make sure that you are in the battle royale game’s lobby and ready to enjoy whatever Activision has planned for this moment. It is anticipated that there will be a large number of players who will log into the game at this time, so there is the potential for issues to happen.
There could be long queues or issues with matchmaking, so getting into the game online early can help with this. More than likely, too, you will also want to be in a match of battle royale when the Vanguard reveal happens, so that you are able to enjoy the event to its fullest.
We expect that some crazy stuff will happen in the middle of battle royale matches, leading up to a trailer with cinematics and details from the upcoming Call of Duty title. At this time, there is some information that we have for Vanguard due to other leaks and rumors from recent months.
What We Already Know About Vanguard
From what we know already, Vanguard is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and will not be a new generation-exclusive title, as it will be available for the same platforms as Cold War: PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
Vanguard is the next World War II title, following up on what Sledgehammer did in 2017, but with a focus on the Pacific front of the war and possibly some strange alternate history madness. It is anticipated to have a singleplayer story campaign, multiplayer, and Zombies experiences.
Furthermore, Call of Duty Warzone will likely connect with Vanguard on a level that will even surpass the original collaboration with Modern Warfare in 2020. Players can expect a brand new Vanguard battle royale map in Warzone, a trip back in time to the 1940s, and a whole lot of weapons, characters, and vehicles from that era.
We will have lots more info to share about the Call of Duty Warzone Vanguard reveal later this week, so even if you cannot make it to the premiere in the battle royale game, we’ll be sure to share it here soon after the event happens. Be sure to check back for the full breakdown of that reveal on Thursday.
