The Call of Duty community is currently abuzz with excitement after Activision and Sledgehammer Games revealed the first cinematic trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard, the next instalment in the storied first-person shooter franchise.
Shortly after the trailer was unveiled to the world, VGC reported that the publisher announced eight of its ten studios are contributing to the development of either Vanguard or Call of Duty's battle royale, Warzone.

In the case of Vanguard, Sledgehammer Games is leading development, with Treyarch in charge of the game's Zombies mode, and Raven Software continuing to lead Warzone's development. Beenox, Demonware, High Moon Studios, Activision Shanghai, and Toys for Bob are lending support across both titles, suggesting the sheer enormity of the two projects.
Known for developing Crash Bandicoot 4 and the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Toys for Bob joined Warzone's development in April and while the news concerned Crash fans, Activision did confirm that the studio will continue to work on It's About Time. With eight studios involved in developing Call of Duty, approximately 2,000 people are now working on the franchise whether it's on the annual release or providing ongoing support for the battle royale.
