2021’s Call of Duty appears to be Vanguard. Leaks are now hinting at an open beta.

Leaked images accessed via datamining of the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War update have given us our first real look at 2021’s Call of Duty: Vanguard, the Sledgehammer Games-developed game that leaked in name only earlier this year. The new images support the rumor that Vanguard will take place during or near World War 2.

Three editions of Vanguard are listed on the images: a Standard Edition (or Ultimate Edition), and a Cross-Gen bundle. Activision actively took down the images via DMCA requests after they were leaked to Twitter late last night. Another image that purportedly shows characters, skins of operators, and weapons for Warzone was also leaked.

Images leaked show four soldiers fighting in a jungle with palm trees. The background is filled with explosions. The British Lee Enfield rifle is held by the foremost soldier. A soldier wearing a Soviet uniform holds a rifle that looks almost certain to be a Soviet Mosin M1891/30 with a scope.

The background of the image shows two other soldiers, both clearly equipped. Although their weapons aren’t obvious, one appears to be wearing a uniform with pouches that reminds me of an Australian or British Commonwealth soldier. The jacket could be either a brown or black leather jacket.

The leaked menu image suggests that these soldiers could be Polina, a sniper, Lucas (possibly the New Zealander), and Wade–probably a leather jacket-wearing man. The soldiers are shown using a mixture of World War 2 and modern weapons. It also has a very, really funny looking skin that looks like the Soviet PPSH submachine gun. However, it has a red dots sight.


We will keep an eye out for any more Call of Duty: Vanguard leaks over the next few days.
