The new Call of Duty is officially pending and will be released in late 2021, Activision has confirmed.
It’s no big surprise that Call of Duty games are released every year like clockwork, but the surprise is that Call of Duty 2021 reportedly returns to World War II regulation and is called Call of Duty WW2: Vanguard. It is then understandable that Activision has confirmed that Sledgehammer Games, the developer of Call of Duty: WW2, is developing a new Call of Duty program.
Although Activision has not officially unveiled the next Call of Duty program, details of the new COD are slowly starting to appear and we are getting a good idea of what to expect. Read everything we know about the new Call of Duty 2021.
The new Call of Duty 2021: what you need to know
- What is it? The next main line of Callline Duty
- When can I call it? Late 2021
- What can I call it? TBC, but probably PC, PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4 and Xbox One
New release date for Call of Duty 2021
Activision Blizzard during the Q4 2020 incoming call (via PelitRadar), speaking of Call of Duty, the publisher confirmed that it has “another strong premium release for Q4 in 2021”.
This means we can expect a new Call of Duty to arrive in late 2021. Usually we see the main line Call of Duty games land in October, so it is possible that we will see a new COD in this window. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is possible that the Call of Duty 2021 payment will be postponed until November – what happened Call of Duty Black Ops: The Cold War.
New Call of Duty 2021 setting
The new Call of Duty returns during World War II Modern Warzone (through PelitRadar ), both of which subsequently confirmed Eurogamer and VGC. According to these reports, Call of Duty 2021 is called Call of Duty WW2: Vanguard, and Activision has since confirmed that Sledgehammer Games is the developer.
According to Eurogamer, the new Call of Duty device has a “traditional” World War II setting, contrary to ModernWarzone’s claim that the game will be placed on an “alternative timeline”.
New Call of Duty 2021 news and rumors
PS4 and Xbox One releases?
Prominent Call of Duty and Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson took to Twitter to share information about Call of Duty 2021 and noted that the game is “under arrest” on game versions on PS4 and Xbox One consoles (via Gamesradar).
It is still unclear how much these rumored last-generation versions of Call of Duty Vanguard may differ from their current-generation counterparts, and Henderson said this intergenerational strategy applies to both Vanguard and the next-developed Call of Duty Infinity Ward, with the developer playing the game in 2022, of Duty’s annual schedule is maintained.

Built with the current generation in mind?
Nearly contrary to Henderson’s leak, Activision President Dan Alegre shared information about Call of Duty 2021 during the company’s first-quarter earnings call, as PelitRadar, saying the new game is “built for the next generation experience.” This could mean that Call of Duty 2021 development will be developed with the primary focus on PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
New Call of Duty 2021: what we want to see
Take advantage of the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Black Ops: The Cold War did it, so we expect Call of Duty 2021 to take it even further. We hope that the new COD can be played back at 120 frames per second (preferably at 4K) and that it will be implemented DualSense controller support for extra embedding. While we can take or leave DualSense support, 120 frames per second for first-person shooters like COD is a huge difference, especially when playing online.
The return of the zombies
A fan favorite, we hope to have the opportunity to take in some Nazi zombie hordes again. But while we love the Zombies formula, it would be great to shake a little more variety of puzzles and some new maps to explore.
With the new COD, there is an opportunity to give a shake to Warzone as well, and we hope that the battle royal will get some World War II transformation that will unite COD 2021 and add freshness to the online game.
Back to basics multiplayer
In the multiplayer game of the Cold War, we loved the fact that it returned to the basics with tight and well-made maps and a sophisticated arsenal. Hopefully Activision will keep this in mind with the new COD.
