Now that we know Call of Duty: Vanguard is the real deal, there’s a lot of anticipation for its release taking place on November 5th, and if this will be a traditional COD release or go with a full focus on multiplayer like its rival, Battlefield 2042, along with Xbox One owners hoping for Smart Delivery and an Xbox Series X Upgrade.
Information Vanguard platforms should be revealed soon, though questions about a single-player campaign or how it will affect Warzone will have to wait as fans continue to speculate about next-gen console performance and next-gen upgrades. If Black Ops Cold War is anything to go by, the community may already have an answer.

Anyone who purchased Black Ops Cold War on PS4 or Xbox One had to pay $10 for the next-gen upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X respectively, so there’s very little chance that Activision will walk back on this decision for Call of Duty: Vanguard.
While it would be great to have a free Xbox Series X Upgrade for Call of Duty: Vanguard via Smart Delivery, that doesn’t seem likely so if you managed to get an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, don’t bother with the Xbox One copy.
Though last-gen/current-gen versions for Call of Duty: Vanguard haven’t been revealed, the lack of next-gen console availability likely ensures that this installment will be coming to Xbox One, hopefully running well, with a paid next-gen upgrade waiting for those planning to get an Xbox Series X eventually.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will launch on November 5th on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
