The Call of Duty: Vanguard time period is a topic that many are wondering about at the moment now that Activision and Sledgehammer Games have released a teaser trailer confirming not only the game's long-rumored title, but also a recently-leaked Warzone event taking place for the game's worldwide reveal.

With the next COD set to have its big reveal this Thursday, here's everything we know so far about when and where Vanguard is set to take place.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Time Period: When Does it Take Place?

Throughout the past year, months before the official confirmation of Call of Duty: Vanguard, prominent leakers have been spot on about details regarding the upcoming title.

Perhaps most plugged in on that front has been prominent leaker Tom Henderson of DualShockers, who on Twitter, has claimed to seen gameplay for the in-development title less than six months ago, and has broken down details about the game's locations, upcoming Champion Hill game mode, increased esports emphasis and more.

As Henderson too has pointed out, the five-second COD: Vanguard teasers sent from Activision to influencers in the past few days have highlighted and referenced some chilling stories of real-life WWII heroes from Charles Upham to Polina Petrova.

With that being said, it is about as close to being confirmed as it gets that Sledgehammer will indeed be taking the franchise back about a half-century from the events of Black Ops Cold War to revisit World War II once again with COD: Vanguard.

In the grand scheme of things, COD: Vanguard will be the 19th flagship title for the first-person shooter franchise, and the fifth in the series to take place during WWII. The first three Call of Duty's focused on the conflict as well as the self-titled COD: WWII developed by Sledgehammer Games in 2017.

Meanwhile the Modern Warfare series sits at five titles, while the Black Ops story arc remains at six. Ghosts (2013), Advanced Warfare (2014) and Infinite Warfare (2016) remain the lone three standalone Call of Duty titles.
