A leaker shares some details on when Call of Duty 2021’s reveal could take place, and Call of Duty: Warzone will supposedly have a role to play.
Call of Duty 2021
Call of Duty Warzone may currently be in the middle of a huge Zombies Outbreak event, but it seems like this will not be the only huge attraction inside the mode this year. According to prominent leaker Tom Henderson, Game of Duty: Warzone will also be used to showcase the reveal trailer for 2021’s Game of Duty game.
This is not the first time that Tom Henderson has discussed this year’s Game of Duty release, as he has specified several features of the game. According to Henderson, the game will be “gritty and controversial,” with Sledgehammer Games serving as its developer. It will also be a boots on the ground game and have integration with Game of Duty: Warzone. This integration will not be the only similarity the 2021 title has to the latest Black Ops, however, as it will apparently follow the same path in terms of its reveal, too.
According to a new post from Henderson, the game will be revealed sometime near August, lining up with Game of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s first showing. Revealed far later than usual, this new format gave players more time to enjoy Game of Duty: Modern Warfare’s post-launch seasons of content. It also allowed players to stay hyped for Game of Duty: Black Ops Cold War right up until release, as the format saw an alpha and beta quickly going live after the reveal.
A special in-game event
Based on this rumor, Game of Duty 2021 will also be pulling from the way that Game of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was revealed. A special in-game event that saw players teased for several weeks, the final reveal saw fans gathering in-game to complete a special mission and unlock the game’s first trailer. With this year’s Game of Duty supposedly focusing on Guerrilla warfare, it is easy enough to picture how its themes and story can be tied into a battle royale game.
Henderson does not specify what the reveal event will look like, as it will likely be a long time before leakers learn anything about the content of the Game of Duty 2021 event. With 2020’s reveal including an external website filled with puzzles to complete and videos to watch, as well as updates to older games, it will be hard to top in terms of complexity. At the very least, though, players can expect some special locations to be added to the Game of Duty: Warzone map if the event happens.
With Henderson also suggesting that a Zombies-only Game of Duty Game is in development, there seems to be a lot of new content in the works for one of gaming’s biggest franchises. Until official confirmation is given, though, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.
Call of Duty Warzone is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
