Is Call of Duty Vanguard Coming to Game Pass?

Will CoD Vanguard be on Game Pass?

Probably not, but stranger things have happened.

No previous Call of Duty game has ever made it to Microsoft's subscription service, though Warzone benefits from free multiplayer on Xbox consoles.


So far, Activision Blizzard hasn't much about the newest Call of Duty, and thanks to a Warzone reveal, we now know which platforms Vanguard will be releasing on. So, is there a chance that Vanguard will make an appearance on Game Pass?

Is Call of Duty: Vanguard Coming To Game Pass?

It's always possible Activision could change its stance and plop Vanguard on Game Pass, particularly if it's part of a drive to increase the number of people playing Warzone.

We already know Activision could plan on tying Warzone and Vanguard together in some way, since a Vanguard map is reportedly replacing Verdansk sometime later this year.

In July, the state of California sued Activision Blizzard for discrimination and harassment against employees. Numerous allegations emerged soon after from workers corroborating the initial accounts, while evidence of past workplace toxicity and abuse began surfacing online. Employees formed an informal organization and demanded a better response from management, though while some leading figures have departed in the scandal's wake, CEO Bobby Kotick has yet to formally acknowledge any of the allegations - including those from investors - and maintains wrongdoing will be investigated by third party group WilmerHale, a law firm known for anti-union activities.
