Call of Duty Vanguard's reveal is scheduled for Aug. 19 after a teaser image appeared in the PlayStation Store.

CharlieINTEL posted a screengrab from the PlayStation Store showing the image alongside other offerings in the store. According to the screengrab, the reveal will take place in Call of Duty: Warzone just like the Black Ops Cold War reveal a year ago. Fans anticipated that in the wake of live, in-game events in titles such as Fortnite would lead to Call of Duty following suit.

With the Vanguard reveal coming in Warzone as well, it seems as long as the battle royale title is around it will serve as a multimedia platform for developers in the Call of Duty family.

It's been long rumored that the next CoD title would be called Vanguard and take place in World War II. It's unknown how the reveal will work, but expect in-game missions just like last year leading to a reveal trailer at the end of the event. Fans hope it isn't a multi-staged event like the Verdansk '84 reveal.

Looking back at the Black Ops Cold War reveal, Activision implemented time-traveling features to take players from the modern setting back to the Cold War atmosphere of the current title. It took several months later for Warzone to completely change its setting to a Verdansk set in 1984. Perhaps changes will be made for a swifter transition considering that it's even a bigger time jump to go back to World War II.

Or, it'll lead to the introduction of a brand-new map letting players drop in to the setting of their choosing.
