A prominent Warzone leaker appears to have revealed a key detail of the rumored major event coming soon to Verdansk '84 to reveal Call of Duty's next franchise title.

With the blockbuster, first-person shooter franchise's next game on the horizon, its been largely assumed within the Call of Duty community that Vanguard will soon be announced in Warzone just like Black Ops Cold War was.

According to Alaix COD, the rumored Vanguard reveal on Warzone is not only going to officially materialize soon, but will also be "insane."

To keep Call of Duty fans hyped for the upcoming event, Alaix COD went on to tweet the only hint they felt was necessary at this time—a two-second audio clip of the iconic Modern Warfare 2 sound "AC-130 above."

With Call of Duty: Vanguard rumored to be centered on World War II, the leak only added fuel to the fire for fans curious to see how Activision will bridge the time gap between Verdansk '84 and the 1940s.

A staple in-game reward utilized as a Killstreak, Pointstreak, Scorestreak and Hero Skill throughout the Call of Duty titles, it seems the chaos that only AC-130 gunships are capable of will at least be part of the next game's initial reveal, if not an actual returning gameplay feature.
