Call of Duty: Vanguard officially revealed following PlayStation Store leak [updated]

Update: Activision has officially revealed Call of Duty: Vanguard following a leak on the PlayStation Store.

The “reveal” comes in the form of a teaser trailer that seems to introduce Vanguard‘s four main characters across a series of battlefields. However, the complete worldwide reveal will take place inside of Call of Duty: Warzone during a “Battle for Verdansk” event on August 19th at 10::30 a.m. PT.

Original Story: A PlayStation Store listing has leaked the title and reveal date for the next Call of Duty game.

Activision will reveal Call of Duty: Vanguard on August 19th at 10:30 a.m. PT inside of Call of Duty: Warzone as predicted. According to Call of Duty news account CharlieIntel (via GameSpot, the leak happened due to the PlayStation Store and PlayStation App updating earlier than expected.

Following a rash of leaks last week, Call of Duty’s official social media channels began teasing the upcoming game’s World War II setting. The first teaser video, as posted by Call of Duty YouTuber MrDalekJD, seemingly showed a scene from the 1944 Battle of Merville Gun Battery.

While it’s still unclear exactly how Activision plans on revealing Vanguard, the recent Season 5 update for Warzone added some points of interest like crates with mysterious wires attached to them, as well as suspicious changes to how red doors work, which will no doubt play a role in the reveal.

Call of Duty: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games is heading up production on Vanguard, which rumors say is using Call of Duty: Modern Warfare‘s engine, unlike last year’s Black Ops Cold War.
