Another year, another new Call of Duty. Sledgehammer Games is once again taking players back to the days of World War 2 in Call of Duty Vanguard. Vanguard's Open Beta launched on Saturday, Sept. 18, and players are already wondering how much longer they'll have to beta test this year's franchise installment.

When Does the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta End?

Upon the launch of Vanguard's Open Beta, Activision announced that the beta would run until Monday, Sept 20, at 2 p.m. ET, but Activision has since changed its plans.

Saturday, Sept. 18, at 2 p.m. EST, just an hour after the Open Beta went live on all platforms, Activision dropped a bombshell. They announced that the Vanguard Open Beta has been extended and will now end Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 2 p.m. EST.

Players are happy about their two extra days to play test this year's Call of Duty. The extension doubles as a bonus for Activision as well, as it lets players continue to discover bugs or exploits that Activision can address before the game officially launches in November.

Early player reactions point toward Activision needing these extra couple of days. Players have reported numerous audio and visual bugs, screen tearing, and a variety of other issues. Luckily, with plenty of time before November these bugs are being discovered early so Activision can address them.

Call of Duty Vanguard releases Friday, Nov. 5. With no other beta weekends planned after the current one ends, players should enjoy the weekend while they can!
