A new rumour for the Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal has been circulating the internet for the past 24 hours, with the reveal rumoured to be August 19th.

The original rumor stemmed from Twitter user @NEXTGEN_ishere, who stated the Vanguard reveal will be on August 19 at 10.45AM PDT. Everyone, including myself, dismissed the claims because the user provided no source or information to back up his claims, however, since his tweet gained traction, it was removed via DMCA by the copyright holder.

Although there’s no verification that the tweet was in fact removed by Activision, DualShockers reached out to their own sources to see if there were some truth to the claims.

After several hours of waiting, four individual people had reached out and verified that something for Call of Duty: Vanguard is happening on August 19th.

So far, none of these sources have been able to give accurate details on what the reveal or event will include, but we know it will likely feature an in-game Warzone event with explosions. Details on the event itself will be shared today with a select number of press and content creators under a strict NDA.

As always though, if new bits of information are released before the reveal, we’ll be sure to share them immediately.

Call of Duty: Vanguard will feature all three modes this year, with a campaign, multiplayer, and zombies mode all set in the European and Pacific theatres of World War II, reported by VGC. These claims have also been backed up by our own sources, in addition to other insiders and leakers within the Call of Duty community.

It’s unclear how exactly Vanguard will be set differently from the likes of Call of Duty: WW2 released in 2017, but it’s clear that Sledgehammer Games will have to pull off something special to compete with this year’s competition.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is scheduled to release in Q4 2021.
