Call of Duty Vanguard is our upcoming 2021 release for the series, and its reveal event date is leaking already.
In case you somehow hadn’t heard, Call of Duty Vanguard will be a return to WW2 that launches later this year. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Vanguard is yet to officially be revealed to the Call of Duty fanbase.
However, after constant leaks over the last few months, we’re certain that the game is a reality. What’s more, Activision is hiding a tease for Vanguard in the new Season 5 key art.
We know that Vanguard is going to get a reveal inside Warzone in Season 5. And, thanks to a new leak, we might just know exactly when said reveal is set to drop.
Of course, with so many people quitting Warzone due to hackers right now, Activision is likely hoping to pull a lot of fans back with this event. Unfortunately for the company, fans are more interested in Modern Warfare 2 than the new WW2 title.
Thankfully, another leak reveals that Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2 are coming soon!
Vanguard Reveal Event Date & Time – Warzone Season 5
It appears that the Vanguard reveal event is definitely coming in Warzone Season 5 – at least according to this new leak.
In a new tweet from gaming news account NEXTGEN_ishere on Twitter, the user revealed that the Call of Duty Vanguard embargo is about to end.
According to the unverified claim, the Vanguard reveal/preview embargo will end on August 19 at 10:45 AM PDT/ 13:45 PM EDT.
Ordinarily, we wouldn’t believe a rumor like this without evidence, but it’s worth noting that the tweet has since been removed due to a copyright claim. This could well be Activision protecting its upcoming reveal, inadvertently proving that the information is true.
Plus, we know that some people have already been playing the Call of Duty Vanguard Alpha, which makes an embargo very likely at this point in time.
UPDATE: Now, further insiders such as Tom Henderson and ModernWarzone have each verified the above leak. It seems that something big is coming on August 19.
It’s also worth noting that the date lines up with the start of the Call of Duty League Championship Weekend. And on top of that, there’s a big rumored PlayStation State of Play event on August 19 too!
Now, dataminers are even reporting that the upcoming Vanguard reveal event will bring an AC-130 to Warzone! On top of that, past leaks confirm that Vanguard will have its own WW2 Warzone map with planes and tanks.
Speaking of planes, further reports suggest that Modern Warfare 2’s Terminal is returning in Vanguard also.
