ACTIVISION is unveiling Call of Duty: Vanguard today, with the reveal event set to take place in Warzone.
The Battle of Verdansk event will act as the stage for the reveal later today, at 10.30am PT / 1.30pm ET / 6.30pm BST / 7.30pm CEST.

Meanwhile, after scrubbing the internet of Vanguard leaks, Activision dropped a teaser trailer for the new game this week.
The focus is on the aftermath of whatever battles have just taken place, but sharp-eyed fans will notice the Task Force Vanguard badges in each location.
The badges look incredibly similar to Modern Warfare’s Task Force 141 logo, so we may be seeing the genesis of the special operations unit.
The locations themselves indicate the unit – or at least the members of it – were present in the European, Pacific-Asian, and Mediterranean, African and Middle East Theatres.
We can see evidence of the Western, Eastern, and Pacific Front, as well as the North African campaign.
YouTuber TheXclusiveAce points out that the Western Front scene appears to be the Battle of Merville Gun Battery, while the Sgt. Kingsley patch could reference one of the character’s names.
The sniper’s nest in the Eastern Front at the start of the teaser appears to reference Nina Petrova – a Soviet sniper from WW2.
Whether this is a nod to the soldier, a clue that she’ll be featured as a playable character, or just a coincidence, we don’t know.
