A pair of Call of Duty: Vanguard writers have said they want to help create two sequels to the game.
Discussing the upcoming shooter and its prequel comic during a New York Comic Con panel, Sledgehammer contractor Sam Maggs said she hopes Vanguard’s characters can become new mascots for the blockbuster franchise over multiple series entries.
