Call of Duty: Vanguard, also known as Call of 2021, has yet to be published, and major leaks are already circulating not just about Call of Duty 2022 (Modern Warfare 2 by Infinity Ward), but also about the episode that will follow it, Call of Duty 2023.
Rumors regarding the future of the Activision series were circulated by the ever-reliable Tom Henderson, who has proved to be probably the most trustworthy source on the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises over the years, missing no COD or BF leaks since 2018.
According to a leaker, the US publisher has already handed the 2023 chapter to beloved company Treyarch, who will reportedly put the game in a semi-futuristic context, a contentious setting for hosting titles such as Advanced Warfare, Black 3 and 4, and, of course, Infinity Ward.
Henderson, on the other hand, guarantees that there will be no return to jet packs, a gameplay style that debuted in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and was influenced by Titanfall. However, the narrative background should transport the player to the near future, populated by high-tech weapons, in a game that should not be classified as ‘Modern War.’
Treyarch is still supporting the online multiplayer sector of Black Ops Cold War and developing COD Vanguard’s zombie mode, and we don’t know which sub-series it will target in the future. Could be the
Episode 5 of Black Ops, or perhaps Treyarch is now ready to develop an entire new sub-series.
