Unfortunately, what had to happen happened, and although it was not a secret, Call of Duty: Vanguard did not have the effect that Activision and Sledgehammer Games expected. According to an annual report of the giant study, the title based on World War II has cooled to the great May.
Vanguard did not meet activation expectations
Long before its launch, and after its few beta phases, Call of Duty: Vanguard had only convinced the players of the franchise very moderately, and when it was launched on November 5, 2021, success did not stay there.
According to the annual Activision report (through Charlieintel ), Vanguard did not sell much, for several reasons..
According to the study, Vanguard really did not contribute any innovation to the license, and the context chosen for this title did not have the desired effect since the period of World War II has already been seen and reviewed in the various titles of Call of Duty.
As a result, Activision focuses more than ever on the next games, namely Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but also in his next Battle Royale Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
All hopes on Modern Warfare 2
At a time when the numbers are not really good, the hopes of the players and also of the developers are naturally addressed to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Recently formalized by Infinity Ward , Modern Warfare 2 should, according to Activision, be the most successful game of the entire franchise . Direct sequel to Modern Warfare published in 2019, we should find there, according to the various clues left on social networks, the character of Ghost.
Separately, Activision has also formalized The development of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 , also with Infinity Ward at the head. According to the different press releases that we have had throughout the weeks, Warzone 2 “will start from scratch” and will not depend on any Call of Duty game.

Therefore, the objective for developers is now to offer a completely new Battle Royale and, above all, avoid making the same mistakes again. Soon we should have news of these two games that are now expected with anxious for the community of Call of Duty.
