Although not much information was given, the team was said to be working on another World War II release.
Dubbed ‘Call of Duty: Vanguard’, no other details at the time were shared on how the game will expand its presents beyond 2020’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. However, it was not until this past May that developer Sledgehammer Games confirmed to be working on this year’s game.
