Call of Duty: Vanguard is rumoured to be announced next week, according to a new DualShockers report, which follows a since-deleted tweet from @NEXTGEN_ishere.

The deleted tweet from @NEXTGEN_ishere, which originally started the rumours, claimed that Vanguard will be revealed on August 19th at 10.45 am PDT. While everyone dismissed the claim at first, people soon started taking notice after the tweet was taken down, reportedly following a DMCA takedown. 

With Activision having accidentally drawn more attention to the rumour, DualShockers went in search of more information, asking their sources if there was any kernel of truth to @NEXTGEN_ishere’s claims. After a few hours of waiting seasoned leaker Tom Henderson received confirmation that yes, “something for Call of Duty: Vanguard is happening on August 19th.”

It’s unclear exactly what this something might be, but if it’s anything like the announcement for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, then we can expect the news to break via an in-game event within the immensely popular free to play Call of Duty: Warzone.

Thanks to past leaks, we know already that Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Vanguard is set in World War 2 with a campaign, multiplayer, and zombies mode as you might expect. Call of Duty: Warzone is also set to be getting an even larger themed map, to reflect the latest Call of Duty release. 

As if thing’s hadn’t been leaked enough already, much to Acitviisons dismay, it appears that promotional material for Call of Duty: Vanguard has also recently leaked online which shows off key artwork as well as a few weapons from the game.
