Activision has announced the release date for when Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 5 will come out.

One of the most exciting aspects about the forthcoming version is that it seems to confirm the Call of Duty Vanguard rumours. The 2021 instalment of the CoD franchise is rumoured to take place in World War II, and it will apparently be revealed via Activision’s free-to-play battle royale epic.

It’ll be interesting to see how the hypothetical reveal happens, but – in regard to official news – there’s plenty of content to be excited about.
