Call of Duty: Vanguard official announcement, Warzone reveal confirmed for Aug. 19

Call of Duty: Vanguard has been officially announced by Activision with a short teaser video on Monday. There isn’t much to go on in the video, it consists mostly of shots of four locations with mysterious faces. However, it seems that I will be playing during World War II, perhaps on the four fronts.

There have not been many details released about Call of Duty: Vanguard, but on August 19th at 1:30PM ET more details will be revealed about Call of Duty: Warzone, the series’ take on a free-to-play battle royale shooter.

The official announcement and Warzone reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard are confirmed for August 19.

According to a website update, Call of Duty: Warzone will unveil the update worldwide on August 19 at 10.30am Pacific / 1.30pm Eastern / 9.30pm British. Platforms and a release date for the game haven’t yet been announced, but it is likely that these details will be announced during the full presentation.

According to Activision:

In general, it’s a minor update, but Raven Software also said it plans to update weapons even further. As a whole, Warzone’s weapon meta is pretty solid right now, but we still need to work on fixing some of the more powerful guns.

The announcement for Call of Duty: Vanguard will take place at Warzone. Like Black Ops Cold War last year, Call of Duty: Vanguard is expected to be revealed in the same way. Through an advertisement, the PlayStation Store confirmed the event taking place within Warzone.

During the recent Season 5 update for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, Vanguard’s key art, WW2 period, open beta, and more were revealed. It’s likely that Warzone will culminate with the unlocking of Vanguard’s trailer, as it did with the Black Ops Cold War reveal last year.

A lawsuit filed by the State of California against Activision Blizzard, alleging widespread harassment, abuse, and discrimination, prompted the company to announce its resignation. Among the complaints center on Blizzard’s “frat boy culture,” which has already caused the company to fire its president. Jesse Meschuk, and Allen Brack worked with the goal of making some progress.

Despite this, many don’t believe Activision Blizzard intends to make any significant structural changes. There are already union-busting lawyers on the payroll of the publisher, but that hasn’t stopped some employees from forming coalitions across all of its labels.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, the company behind Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: WWII. Activision Blizzard is being sued by California for what the state considers to be a culture of sexual harassment.
