Does Call of Duty: Vanguard Use The Frostbite Engine?

Now that we know Call of Duty: Vanguard exists, the buzz around this shooter has been at an all-time high, especially with a Warzone unveiling the very first trailer and the possibility of an Alpha so players can play the game early, but graphics freaks want to know how it will look and if it’s powered by EA’s Frostbite Engine.

Unfortunately, Call of Duty: Vanguard is not an EA game and it’s doubtful that the game will be powered by their engine since Activision owns this franchise, so even if it has next-gen upgrades for last-gen consoles or cross-play across all systems, it probably won’t be powered by the Frostbite Engine.

Does Call of Duty: Vanguard Use The Frostbite Engine?

The Frostbite Engine has proven to be a force in the gaming industry, with games like Anthem and Star Wars Battlefront II looking great regardless of their quality, but we doubt that we’ll see it on Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Vanguard will be using the IW8 engine as opposed to Frostbite, the same engine used to power 2019's Modern Warfare reboot, meaning Vanguard will sill run extremely smoothly.

Unless a partnership is announced, no Call of Duty game has been powered by the Frostbite Engine and it doesn’t seem likely that Call of Duty: Vanguard will be the first, even though it would look really good with those graphics.

It would be nice if EA decided to make the Frostbite Engine available for other companies, but that also means other companies should make their graphics engines available as well, so that future will take a while and Call of Duty: Vanguard won’t be a part of it.

Call of Duty: Vanguard has been revealed and more information will be coming in the weeks leading up to its release on November 5th.
