Vanguard – Will this new Call of Duty save the franchise


Vanguard, the next Call of Duty title is about to have a worldwide announcement. But will it save the dying franchise that many of us grew up with?

There’s been a lot in the news about Activision Blizzard. Frankly they haven’t been good news as there’s lots of legal issues hovering around the company.

Hostile work enviroment, “frat boys”, male preference amongst other claims. These are only the tip of the iceberg that is Activision Blizzard.

While these accusations have risen lately, the games of the company have been also on the crosshair of criticism. Lootboxes, unfinished and unpolished games and other microtransaction displeasement has grown to a whole new level.

Back in 2017, Call of Duty tried to go back to its roots by releasing WWII. Now, the idea itself was great and it showed that the company had listened to fans, to an extent. Usually a sequel or a new game in a series should bring something new and innovative. Or by the very least improve things that were already good in previous titles. Call of Duty WWII failed at both and had a lot of issues when it launched. Now of course that was nothing compared to Cyberpunk’s release. However as of late game publishers have made it a habit to release unfinished games.

The way they made WWII and how broken it was compiled with many other issues on their plate it’s safe to be catious about Vanguard. We are not implying that it’s going to be a bad game, we just know now that we shouldn’t hope too much.

Vanguard will have its global announcement 6:30PM GMT. This will happen in an in-game event on Warzone. We also made an article about the season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone couple days ago. Keep in mind that the article unlike this, is in finnish.

With that being said, we hope that you will have a lovely day. Stay tuned later this evening as we will be going through the announcement after it’s over.
