Huge Call of Duty 2021 leak reveals ‘INSANE Warzone event’ with AC-130 terror
A NEW Call of Duty 2021 “leak” has teased possible details about the upcoming game.
So-called “Call of Duty Vanguard” is expected later this year – but it’s still shrouded in mystery.

Call of Duty games come out like clockwork, landing just before Christmas each year.
Last year’s Cold War launched on November 13, but was unveiled in August.
It’s entirely likely that Activision will follow a similar timeline for 2021, with an August reveal and November release.
Now Call of Duty leaker HeyImAlaix has teased several details about the Vanguard reveal.
It’s expected that we’ll see a special event inside Call of Duty’s existing Warzone game.
This is tipped to include an AC-130, the iconic armoured gunship that has featured heavily throughout the Call of Duty franchise.
He also said: “Vanguard reveal on WZ is going to be INSANE.”
Dataminers The Cheeseburger Boys replied to the originalm leak to add that they found a clip of the line: “A bomb’s been planted on our ammo supply.”
That’s an iconic line from Call of Duty WW2, hinting towards a return to that era for Vanguard.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that these are red herrings or hoaxes.
We won’t know for sure until the official reveal event begins.
Coming up soon
We’re expecting the game to launch before Christmas, and for it to integrate with Warzone in some way.
This time around, the game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games – and as usual, will be published by Activision.
Thankfully Activision is a creature of habit – and releases Call of Duty games at roughly the same time each year.
Here are some recent launches:
- Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – November 7, 2007
- Call of Duty: World at War – November 11, 2008
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – November 10, 2009
- Call of Duty: Black Ops – November 9, 2010
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – November 8, 2011
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – November 12, 2012
- Call of Duty Ghosts – November 5, 2013
- Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – November 4, 2014
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – November 6, 2015
- Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – November 4, 2016
- Call of Duty: WW2 – November 2, 2017
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – October 12, 2018
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2019 – October 25, 2019
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – November 13, 2020
As the history shows, Activision tends to stick almost exclusively to the beginning of November.
So we’d expect Call of Duty 2021 to come out somewhere between November 2 and November 13.
Activision also appears to prefer launching Call of Duty games on a Friday.
So if we were to guess at the Call of Duty 2021 release date, we’d go for Friday, November 5.
Shooting in the past
Activision has said that the game is “built for next-generation experience”.
That could mean any number of things, including advanced graphics for the PS5, Xbox and newer PC GPUs.
Or it could be linked to next-gen technologies like virtual or augmented reality.
Activision also hinted that it would “integrate with and enhance the existing COD ecosystem”.
That probably means there’ll be some link to Call of Duty Warzone, and the synchronised progress that the spin-off game offers.
However, this isn’t confirmed – Activision is being intentionally vague, given that the game is still shrouded in mystery.
We don’t know anything concrete about the storyline, though rumours are already swirling.
The big theory from tipster ModernWarzone is that the game will be called WW2: Vanguard – and will return to a World War 2 setting.
It’s claimed that the game will take place in the 1950s, in an alternate universe where World War 2 rages on.
