Call of Duty: Vanguard keyart leak seemingly confirms WW2 setting, open beta, and more

By Sean Carey,
Call of Duty: Vanguard artwork has leaked ahead of the game's big reveal and seemingly confirms the name, the reported World War II setting, three different editions of the game, an early access open beta, operators, and more.


According to Charlie Intel, the images which are now being shared across the internet were datamined from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, following its Season 5 update. If the images are genuine, which they appear to be, then we now have a name for Call of Duty 2021 and confirmation that Vanguard will be set during the Second World War.


The images show that Call of Duty: Vanguard will have three different editions: a Standard Edition, Cross-Gen Bundle, and Ultimate Edition. Another user on Twitter also shared an image of what Charlie Intel believes to be what's included with the Ultimate Edition of the game. The picture shows that there will be an Early Access Open Beta, details three Operators, and a bunch of other extras.

Yesterday, rumours began circulating that Call of Duty: Vanguard would be revealed on August 19th. This was then backed up by insider Tom Henderson, who said he managed to verify the rumour with four independent sources. It appears that Henderson is now teasing a release date of November 5th for Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Activision has remained tight-lipped on all of these leaks. Hopefully, we'll hear more on Call of Duty: Vanguard very soon.
