Another year, another new Call of Duty. Over the past week, leaks about Call of Duty: Vanguard have been flowing all over the internet.

Fans have known the reveal must be happening soon as the leaks and teasers have ramped up in the past few days. Yesterday, Aug. 16, Activision released the official teaser trailer for this year's installment and confirmed the long-speculated title would, in fact, be Call of Duty: Vanguard.

When is the Call of Duty Vanguard event in Warzone?

The Vanguard event will happen in Warzone at 1:30 pm EST on Thursday, Aug. 19.

This was first confirmed by a leaked teaser image found on the Playstation Store, before later being confirmed in a tweet by the official CoD account.

Similar to Call of Duty: Cold War, the reveal for Vanguard will be a worldwide, concurrent event happening in Warzone. Over the past few years reveals like this have become commonplace since Fortnite began utilizing this method to unveil their new season's.

Unlike the Cold War reveal, CoD fans have not had to crack cyphers, find in game clues, and wait for cryptic tweets from Activision.

Vanguard's reveal appeals to be much more simplistic and direct, but not much is known about the Warzone event. Fans are hoping that the map changes, or potential introduction of an entirely new map, will happen quicker then last year's reveal. The Verdansk '84 event consisted of multiple stages with map changes spanning over multiple months.

What do we know about Call of Duty: Vangaurd?

Not much information is yet known about Call of Duty: Vanguard. All we know is that the game will once again visit World War II, only four years after Sledgehammer Games' Call of Duty: WWII. It's also been revealed that the next CoD installment with integrate with Warzone and bring with it changes to the current map or maybe a brand new one.
