After months of speculation, it appears that Call of Duty Vanguard’s leaked box art confirms the series’ return to WWII settings. Sledgehammer Games, who have already proven themselves in the WWII setting with Call of Duty WWII, will be in charge of Call of Duty Vanguard development.
Activision appears to be dead set on allowing their games from different studios (Treyarch, Sledgehammer, and Infinity Ward) to coexist cohesively, allowing them to share resources such as maps and settings. Similarly, based on the images leaked, it appears that the new game “Vanguard” will include a new Warzone map.
This is fantastic news, and Warzone will have a variety of settings by this point, including the modern-day in Modern Warfare (2018), the Cold War in Black Ops Cold War, and now the Pacific theatre of WWII with Vanguard.
According to the leaked box art, Call of Duty Vanguard will be a cross-gen title

Players have discovered signs pointing to a WWII setting over the last few weeks. On the PlayStation Store, there are mentions of a closed alpha called “Slipstream.” Previously, Call of Duty open alphas was known by similar codenames, such as when the closed alpha for Black Ops Cold War appeared on the digital storefront as “The Red Door.”
Call of Duty Vanguard will be available in three editions, according to the leaked images: Standard, Cross-Gen Bundle, and Ultimate Edition. These images were discovered in the most recent Black Ops Cold War update file.
The Open Beta will most likely be announced soon, and it will be interesting to see how the player base reacts to the return to WWII. COD games set in the past have generally been well received, and given Sledgehammer’s previous success with WWII, the early signs are promising.
