Multiple new sources have claimed that this year’s Call Of Duty is set during WW2 and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games.

If there’s one game you can guarantee will leak early every year it’s the new Call Of Duty; for a while now the predominate rumour has been that 2021’s entry is set during the Second World War, something which additional sources have now also stated to be true.

According to website ModernWarzone the game is currently codenamed WW2: Vanguard and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games. Sledgehammer helped out with the last couple of games but the last entry they were the leads on was 2017’s Call Of Duty: WW2.

ModernWarzone quotes other leakers who also seem convinced of the WW2 setting, although they claim that part of the game may also be set in 1950 – well after the end of the Second World War and during the start of the Cold War.

It’s long been rumoured that Call Of Duty would be tackling the Korean War, which ran from 1950 to 1953, but that has not been confirmed in these latest leaks.

What is suggested by the leaks is that the new game will receive its own Warzone map, but then Activision themselves have spoken often about how each year’s new game will influence Warzone.

Eurogamer also claims it has information that the new game will be set in the Second World War but suggests that the name Vanguard may actually be final.

All of this is perfectly believable (and therefore easy to fake) but at this point it would be more of a surprise if the new game wasn’t set during the Second World War.

What’s also worth noting is that Battlefield 6, which is also due out this autumn, is widely rumoured to have a modern day setting, so it’ll be interesting to see how popular that proves compared to Activision’s return to the past.
