Vanguard confirms disappointing report to be true
Activision and Sledgehammer Games have confirmed a disappointing report on Call of Duty: VanguarD. When the new Call of Duty The game will release next week via PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X, it will do so without the ranked game, which reports leaked earlier this week. That said, while the ranked game will be missing at launch, it’s on the way, but players will have to wait until 2022 to experience it.
The news comes from the official path Call of Duty The Twitter account, which notes that Sledgehammer Games, with assistance from Treyarch, is “watch[ing] looking forward to bringing a new level of ranked game support to Avant-garde. What “a new level” means, we don’t know. It gives the impression that it will not be a standard implementation, but it is also possible that it is just marketing.
Meanwhile, it’s unclear when in 2022 the ranked game will be released. “2022” is obviously a very vague time window. And unfortunately, there is also no word when we hear more about it. The official Call of Duty The Twitter account notes that “more details will be shared at a later date.” Obviously, it’s just as vague as its release date.
Some have speculated that the inclusion of Treyarch suggests the ranked game is finally coming. Call of Duty: War Zone, but this speculation ignores the fact that Raven Software is now handling the development of Call of Duty: War Zone.
What also remains unclear is whether the addition of the ranked game will remove skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) from casual playlists. It probably won’t, but it’s a possibility.
