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.
Thanks to a Warzone event, the community received more information on Call of Duty: Vanguard, like if it’s still coming to current-gen/last-gen consoles, and if this game is secretly a remake of their WW2 shooters.
Is Call of Duty: Vanguard a Remake?
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.
Then again, with games like Apex Legends presenting more fantastical settings and Battlefield 2042 going for a futuristic setting, Call of Duty: Vanguard going back to WW2 might be enough for some, even if it’s not a remake of the first three games in the series.
We’ll find out soon if Call of Duty: Vanguard is going to be a remake or not but considering the lack of nostalgic material being used in the teaser trailer, those chances are slim.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be revealed at the August 19th Warzone event, telling us which systems the game will be coming to and more.
