Call of Duty: Vanguard has been officially teased by Activision in a new cryptic easter egg located within an image for Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 5.
Whilst it has been rumored that Vanguard is to be revealed in Warzone starting this month, it looks like Activision may have already jumped the gun.
In a new Twitter tease showcasing the latest operator ‘Kitsune’ arriving with Warzone Season 5, there also appears to be a hidden detail officially revealing Vanguard as the next Call of Duty title.
Furthermore, alongside this, we already have access to Soap MacTavish as well as the brand-new CX-9 weapon. It looks like players are being spoilt for choice at the moment.
Here’s what we know about the COD Vanguard tease, including what it means for the future of the franchise.
Call of Duty Teases ‘Vanguard is Coming’
In an official tweet directly from the Call of Duty Twitter page, Vanguard, the next COD game, has been teased from a hidden detail.
Whilst many players may have been focusing on the brand-new operator for Warzone Season 5, Kitsune, other eagle-eyed fans have managed to uncover more tantalizing secrets.
Interestingly enough, the new teaser image for the operator contains a subtle detail that many may have missed at first glance. Although you’d need a pretty confident understanding of the Japanese language in order to spot it.

Consequently, as a result of dedicated fans’ efforts, the key art for Season 5 has revealed that Vanguard is in fact on its way.
But, how do we know this? Well, if you take a closer look at the Japanese writing in the background of the image, it holds a secret. When translating part of the background text we get the following statement, which appears to confirm Vanguard is happening.
Rather ominously, players can read for themselves “Vanguard Is Coming”. Whilst this gives us little indication of when Vanguard is arriving, we do know that Warzone is going to reveal the game. In fact, one leaker believes that the Call of Duty Vanguard reveal event will feature this insane experience.
It looks like Season 5 is gearing up to be a big one. However, some players are worried that without some huge changes many might soon quit.
Furthermore, we do know about a number of operators and weapons coming in Warzone Season 5.
And, if you haven’t done so already, here is how to get your hands on the brand-new CX-9.
