Call of Duty teases World War II setting in response to leaks and rumors
In response to a leak that came out yesterday, Call of Duty has posted a new teaser video of its next game that hints at a World War II setting.
The video, which YouTuber MrDalekJD received (via Gamespot), seems to depict a scene from the 1944 Battle of Merville Gun Battery on the Western Front of World War II.
This seemingly confirms a World War II setting for the next Call of Duty game. A report from March 2021 stated that the game, which is in development at Call of Duty: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games, will be called Call of Duty: WWII Vanguard, following a similar naming convention to last year’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
This isn’t the only teaser that Call of Duty has released following leaked details that dataminers found in the Season 5 update for Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone. The best-selling franchise’s main Twitter account posted a video clip in which World War II-era bombers, tagged as “Rumors” and “Leaks,” are bombing a city.
The next game’s reveal is only a matter of time now, as its social media marketing team seems to be ramping up to a big unveiling. Black Ops Cold War was announced through an in-game event in Warzone, and it’s probably safe to assume that Call of Duty will try that tactic again, despite Warzone‘s recent problems with cheaters driving a lot of players back to other games.
