Call of Duty Vanguard to arrive this year, second leak

Logos and images from the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise were leaked onto Twitter and Reddit. The game, titled Call of Duty Vanguard, appears to be the 2021 entry in the series, reports the CharlieIntel.

Images come from an update data mine from Season 5 of Black Ops Cold War, which contained the leaked images in its files. The setting appears to be World War II, confirming months of rumors. Publisher Activision has not officially announced a Call of Duty for 2021, but is actively issuing takedown notices for reposts of the images.

Leaks occur in the midst of a powerful process at Activision Blizzard. Former employees have claimed that Activision Blizzard's senior management has created and maintains a hostile “boy fraternity” culture in the workplace that disproportionately targets women.

Current and former employees denounced sexual harassment and low pay by company bosses and claim that those responsible were not punished for their actions. The process is still ongoing.
