After days filled with leaks regarding its launch, Activision finally announced the release of the new addition to the Call of Duty franchise, "Call of Duty: Vanguard."

This is despite of the ongoing lawsuit filed by the California court following accusations made by the workers of the video game publishing company along with its sister company, Blizzard, regarding cases of sexual misconduct and harassment.

Few days ago, several of its game developers, graphic artists, and other office workers decide to walk out of their offices in solidarity of their fellow co-workers, mostly women, as protest against the companies' "answer" regarding the said lawsuit.

What Players Would Expect in Vanguard

Following their announcement for Vanguard, the developers behind the Call of Duty released a short teaser trailer regarding the new installment, which according to The Indian Express, it gave a short glimpse of what would the first-person shooting game look like.

This is despite of the fact that the trailer did not reveal a lot of details of what players would expect. However several leaks were surrounded before the said release.

According to PC Invasion, several of these leaks were posted on Reddit, which shown several elements of the game, including characters that will be involved, as well weapons with their skins.

The leaks also mentioned that the game will might be sold in versions, including an Ultimate Edition, as well as it might be also sold in a Cross-Gen Bundle, implicating that the game will be cross-platforming between video game platforms, including next-gen ones.

The leaks that were surfaced on Social Media regarding Vanguard were then deleted days before the its trailer was released.

As far as the question of whether Vanguard will have a Zombie game mode like the other Call of Duty games, according to Gamepur, it is not certain that the new Call of Duty installment will have the said game mode.

However, considering that Treyarch is helping on the development of the game, which was spearheaded by Sledgehammer Games, the said Zombie element will might be included, which is now currently seen in Black Ops Cold War in the form of their Mauer der Toten map.
