Over the last few weeks, “Call of Duty” fans have learned more details about the franchise’s 2021 installment through leaks. Now, a new leak has appeared in the wild, and it does not paint a good picture of what could happen to the next game in terms of its “Warzone” integration.

‘Call of Duty’ 2021: Don’t expect a full-fledged ‘Warzone’ map until 2022

Before the new details that came to light over the last couple of weeks, there have already been doubts and concerns on the “Call of Duty” 2021 title’s integration with the “Warzone” multiplayer gameplay. While some speculations go to the extent of suggesting it might not entirely happen, the latest insider report indicates otherwise. However, it does not seem as flawless as fans would hope.

Last weekend, well-known leaker Tom Henderson reported that a new “Warzone” map is slated for a 2022 launch, which was interesting because that is a full year from now. But the tipster provided more context in his Gone Gold Newsletter on Tuesday, giving fans more idea on what has been happening with the “Call of Duty” 2021 development, particularly with the prospects of “Warzone” integration.

Henderson notes that Sledgehammer Games and Activision still have plenty of things to finalize. But his latest information indicates that the rumored questionable status of “Call of Duty” 2021’s “Warzone” integration has its merits. He reiterates his report that now full “Warzone” map will be launched in 2021.

Even the WW2-themed “Warzone” map that could be launched in April 2022 is reportedly not a “full-fledged” map, according to his sources. He once again compared it to the size of Rebirth Island, which means it might only be able to accommodate 40 to 60 players in every match.

Henderson also reported that the integration of the “Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard” weapons with “Warzone” could also be approached differently this year, in a sense that it could happen “periodically” through the upcoming game’s lifespan. The same report noted that this could be Activision’s way to “incentivize” buying blueprints.

‘Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard’ release date

Even though Sledgehammer Games seems to have spent most of the development timeline in the middle of a pandemic, there is no strong indication that fans should worry about a delay. In this case, “Call of Duty: WW2 Vanguard” could be released sometime in November.
