Eurogamer’s sources can confirm the rumor that the next offshoot actually goes by the code name “Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard”. It also says that Activision and Sledgehammer Games want to use the name for the final product as well, at least for now. However, Eurogamer’s sources cannot confirm that “Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard” will take place in an alternate timeline in which World War II still did not end in the 1950s. Instead, there should be a regular WW2 scenario.
VGC can also confirm “Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard” as the title and as reported there, Sledgehammer Games will return to the “Modern Warfare 2019” engine (IW8), which is also used by “Call of Duty: Warzone” . Last year’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” switched to an updated version of Treyarch’s “Black Ops 4” technology. Due to the very different time periods, however, it is unclear how extensively “Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard” will be connected to “Call of Duty: Warzone”.
