Recent rumours and leaks have lifted the lid on several potential details on this year’s Call of Duty game. Reportedly being developed by Sledgehammer, it will take players back to a World War 2 setting, and will be called Call of Duty WW2: Vanguard. Those are details that have been shared by multiple sources, and a recent report by VGC corroborates that as well.

In addition, however, VGC’s report also claims that WW2: Vanguard is being built on the IW8 engine, the new and overhauled engine that was introduced with 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Last year’s Black Ops Cold War, however, switched back to the engine that Treyarch had previously used for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 back in 2018, albeit an upgraded version of it.

As per VGC, the switch to IW8 is likely due to potential integration with free-to-play battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone, which uses the same engine, and has been integrated with Modern Warfare, and then with Black Ops Cold War. That said, given the fact that WW2: Vanguard’s Second World War setting is going to diverge from Warzone’s setting significantly, it remains to be seen how that integration will be handled, or whether the two will even be integrated.

2021’s Call of Duty game is confirmed to be releasing later in the year, so the official reveal should likely be coming a few months from now, at which point we’ll know more about the validity of these details one way or another. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates.
