The new season will go live on Thursday, June 17 and be “jam-packed” with content, Activision’s Call of Duty GM, Johanna Faries said during Summer Game Fest Kickoff Live.
Faries did not share any new details on this year’s Call of Duty title, which is in development at Sledgehammer Games.
VGC reported this week that Activision would not reveal the new Call of Duty, which will be called Vanguard, until the end of the year.
Instead, the publisher has opted to reveal its next premium FPS entry later in the summer, likely via an in-game event in free-to-play Warzone, as it did last year with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
This year’s game is called Call of Duty: Vanguard, developed by Sledgehammer Games, and is currently on track to release on current and last-gen consoles, plus PC, in November.
Vanguard will feature a campaign, multiplayer and zombies modes set in the European and Pacific theatres of World War II, with its plot centring around the birth of modern allied Special Forces.
