During Activision's second quarterly conference call of 2021, the publisher unveiled several details surrounding the immense success of the popular first-person shooter franchise. The call took place on August 3rd, just a few days before the start of Season 5, and saw the publisher confirm that Black Ops Cold War, COD: Mobile, and Warzone making billions in micro-transactions.
Alongside detailing the figures, the publisher confirmed that COD 2021, heavily rumoured to be titled Vanguard, is still on track to release in the final quarter of the year amid rumours of the title being delayed.
COD Vanguard 2021 Release
Other than announcing that the game is still on track to release this year, there were no additional details on the next instalment in the franchise. Although no details were revealed during the conference call, an eagle-eyed Easter Egg hunter has managed to discover the very first teaser for the new game, seemingly confirming the title as "Vanguard."
COD 2021 Warzone Integration
During the call, Activision confirmed that COD 2021 will "deeply integrate" into Warzone and feature a number of new innovations, much to the excitement of the community. Reports have already revealed that a brand-new map set in the Pacific will launch alongside the annual release and with COD 2021 rumoured to be built on the IW8 engine, the same as Warzone, integration is likely to be much smoother than Black Ops Cold War.
With small teasers and clues beginning to emerge, expect more details on COD 2021 to emerge in the coming weeks and months before the trailer is revealed in the Warzone event expected to take place in Season 5!
