Expected for the end of the year, the next Call of Duty (codenamed Vanguard) would seem to suffer from a very complicated development that does not bode well. Two sources generally well informed around the license of Activision were able to pass information which is at the very least worrying.
Call of Duty Vanguard: “a fucking disaster”
It was through the Black Ops Cold War Newz Twitter account (a strong community around Call of Duty) that the first alert was given. Apparently, the development times for the new opus would have been drastically reduced, causing quite a bit of chaos around the project.
RUMOR: Bad news … # COD2021 (WW2 Vanguard) has reportedly been pushed forward a year (it’s had one less year in development). Meaning it may be as rushed as, if not more rushed than Cold War.

RUMORS: Bad news …
# COD2021 (WW2 Vanguard) would have been brought forward a year (it had a year less in development). This means development may be as rushed, if not more, than COD Black Ops: Cold War.

For the development of the previous opus (Black Ops Cold War), the project was entrusted to Sledgehammer Games. But after a few months of development, due to difficulties, the game passed into the hands of Treyarch. For Call of Duty 2021, it is once again Sledgehammer Games which is in the driver’s seat. And obviously, it’s still just as complicated.
According to Tom henderson, a renowned insider around the license, the situation would be catastrophic.

But you’ll find out more about that later.
Quite worrying statements, but to be taken with a grain of salt while waiting for the first information on the new Call of Duty. In any case, if these rumors turn out to be true, there is reason to be worried about the next title of Activision, especially for this year.
Indeed, the end of the year 2021 will mark the great return of the eternal rival: Battlefield. For its part, the game seems to be doing quite well and Electronic Arts is quite confident. The game is expected to be unveiled next month for release this fall. Regarding Call of Duty, it should also be announced this spring for a fall release as well. The war promises to be tough …
