Call Of Duty Vanguard ‘To Be Set In World Where WW2 Didn’t End’

The Call of Duty franchises tangle with retelling history with their own protagonists and characters has often been placed under scrutiny from school bookworms, although not nearly as much as the futuristic fantasised era.

In campaigns where they have wrestled with the history books by diving into real-life events such as the Vietnam War, World War 2, and most recently the Cold War, the developers have often rewritten history to their vast player base. With Sledgehammer Games' rendition of World War 2 being one of the more critically appraised campaigns yet, the developers are looking to combine their skills of previous warfare with the make-believe techniques deployed in making Advanced Warfare, to create their own textbook on history.

After reports emerged that the developers are working on the 2021 title Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard, it appears that they are picking up from the 'end' of WW2, and creating the campaign 'In World Where WW2 Didn’t End’.

Previous reports and leaks suggested that the next instalment of the Call of Duty franchise will take place in the 1950s, possibly tying in with either the Korean War or the Vietnam War such as Sledgehammer's cancelled 2009 "Fog of War" game would have.

Now, it seems set that Sledgehammer is playing fantasies again, by creating an alternate timeline where WW2 didn't end, allowing their characters to play out warfare from the past without having the attachments of having to be factually accurate.

Their previous campaigns have seen collaborations with Kevin Spacey (Jonathon Irons in Advanced Warfare) and Transformers hero Josh Duhamel (TSgt. William Pierson in WWII), who knows which celeb will be pulled into the ranks this year.

In titles where their multiplayer action has been heavily criticised, Sledgehammer Games has consistently excelled in storytelling, making this alternate history rather mouthwatering.
