With the game expected to fill its traditional November release slot, fans are starting to find out more information about the next Call of Duty.
According to a variety of reports online, the next game in the popular FPS series will be called Call of Duty Vanguard.
Developed by Sledgehammer Games, it will once again take place in the World War 2 era of history.
Where reports start to differ, however, is whether or not it will take place in an alternative history, similar to something like Wolfenstein.
That’s based on a report on ModernWarzone, which suggests that the game will take place in a 1950s setting, where the war never ended.
However, the surprise reports have been debunked by Eurogamer, which claims that Vanguard will feature a more traditional WW2 setting.
While the exact setting is up for debate, the WW2 setting and Vanguard name is starting to look like a pretty safe bet.
Launching next week, the big new update is likely to contain everything from new maps, new operators, and new weapons.
Furthermore, fans can expect the usual array of bug fixes, gameplay tweaks, and balance changes.
Arguably one of the most anticipated changes is the release of the Miami Strike map, which is an updated version of the controversial Miami map.
Other potential new maps include Mansion, which is a smaller arena that’s ideal for 2v2 matches.
It’s almost a given that the mid-season update will add the ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle, which was announced back when the season started.
Based on a recent Treyarch tweet, something big is coming to Zombies: “Next week, new mysteries of the Dark Aether await…”
