Is Call of Duty Vanguard a Remake?

Call of Duty: Vanguard has got fans talking since the game is going back to a World War 2 setting after the release of Call of Duty: WW2 back in 2017, which has many wondering if this is some kind of remake for the four-year-old shooter or maybe even one of the older Call of Duty titles that have previously used World War 2 as a setting for the game.

With the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard just one week away, the community is continuing to ask several questions surrounding Sledgehammer Games' latest offering, like if it’s still coming to current-gen/last-gen consoles, and if this game is secretly a remake of COD: WW2 which released several years ago.

Prior to Modern Warfare, Call of Duty made its name through WW2 shooters, letting players go through various events of the historical era and we’re expecting Call of Duty: Vanguard to do the same, albeit with next-gen graphics and excellent online play.

Call of Duty has gone with the WW2 setting many times, so it’s easy to see why fans think Call of Duty: Vanguard is a remake since there are only so many times you can go back to this period in time and feel fresh. As more details surrounding Vanguard emerge, it's safe to say that the game is not a remake of any other Call of Duty title, meaning that the game will feature a brand-new campaign, innovative multiplayer, and all-new Zombies storyline.

With many of Vanguard's competitors attempting to get the upper hand by releasing titles set in the near future, it will be very interesting to see how it performs and whether players will embrace a more traditional setting or look for something more modern.
