Insider Tom Henderson Talks Call Of Duty WWII: Vanguard, Warzone Integration, And More
Before we get into the story, it should be said that Henderson prefaced all of this with a disclaimer saying none of this Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard and Warzone info is concrete or finalized.
According to Henderson, we will not see a new WWII-era Warzone map in 2021. Instead, a new map is likely to arrive in April 2022.
Henderson also says that official development on this map hasn’t even started yet and will be developed by another studio alongside Sledgehammer Games. Furthermore, this WWII-era map will be more in line with Rebirth Island (40-60 players) rather than a traditional Warzone map.
Here’s where things really start to get interesting (and a bit troubling). Henderson reports that Activision is thinking about making some changes to how Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard will integrate with Warzone.
Basically, weapons in Vanguard could end up being initially locked. Meaning, players will have to complete in-game challenges to unlock them in Warzone. So, if you don’t want to spend a ton of time unlocking a Vanguard weapon in Warzone, you could just either purchase a blueprint for the weapon or complete the in-game challenge via Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard’s multiplayer.
Call Of Duty WWII: Vanguard Setting
In the newsletter, Henderson also corroborated our previous report that the next Call of Duty will be called Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard.
In our original report, we stated that the game would take place in an alternate timeline where WWII didn’t end in 1945. However, like Eurogamer, Henderson is reporting that this detail isn’t entirely accurate.
Due to the multiple reports on this subject, it’s becoming more and more likely that we got this specific detail wrong. So, we do apologize if this is the case.
