Call of Duty 2021 is fast approaching, and it's shaping up to be quite an epic expereince.
So far, it's been rumoured that the next title will be called Call of Duty Vanguard and will be set in World War 2.
This engine took 5 years to develop in poland and was first featured in Modern Warfare back in 2019.
The engine takes advantage of advancements in visual engineering as well as includes DirectX Raytracing and a new GPU geometry pipeline.
Although a lot of this sounds like gibberish, the IW8 engine delivers on multiple features and is the reason MW looks and feels as good as it does.
So why did Black Ops Cold War not utilise this Engine?
As each COD title is developed by a different studio each year, the engine they use may vary depending on what they have planned.
Although this engine isn't considered 'worse', it does seem to be a lot less complex when compared to the IW8 Engine.
Although there's no release date for the upcoming Call of Duty title, we can expect the game to release around October/November.
Before then, we'll likely get an announcement for the rumoured title of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
