Call of Duty 2021 reportedly named Call of Duty WWII Vanguard

Call of Duty 2021 is reportedly known as Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard internally within developer Sledgehammer Games.

That report comes from sources speaking to ModernWarzone, which claims that that name is very much a working title, and that this year's game may eventually ship under a different name. While it's worth taking this rumor with a pinch of salt, especially in lieu of any official comment from Activision or Sledgehammer, the title could provide a hint as to the nature of the game.

Whether or not the word 'Vanguard' features in the final title, it seems increasingly likely that we'll be returning to World War Two. Sledgehammer was the lead developer behind 2017's Call of Duty: WWII, so could easily be set to return to that period. What's more, a Call of Duty leaker has already suggested that this year's game will be set in World War II, and ModernWarzone also reports that some of the game's cutscenes will be set in the 1950s, soon after the period in which the war took place.

Activision has confirmed that this year's entry in its FPS series will be coming in late 2021, as is pretty much custom at this point, but we've had very little in the way of official information since then. That said, Call of Duty's reveal events tend to be in the summer, so we should find out more relatively soon.

Already decided since playing every cod since cod 2 i wont be buying this one on launch, if at all. They haven't made a good game since og mw series, black ops 1 and waw personally.


highly doubt it since shg isnt a part of activision anymore last i heard it was back to the two year cycle, and the games name is stupid and ww2 not alot liked it, the game was boring the hub was cool though i liked the idea of a public out of match space, but the game itself is trash.

again unless i misheard but the original shg is no more, and they arent working on cod only to assist 3arc and new iw


Maze Lmaooooo that's so lame. WWII again???

Exactly my thoughts lmao
