Call of Duty 2021, aka Vanguard, and its World War II setting, is arguably one of the worst-kept secrets on the internet right now. Leakers have already found several supposed details about the upcoming entry into the iconic FPS franchise, from the Headquarters and Ground War modes, to the possibility of Warzone getting a brand new WW2 Pacific map with the game's inevitable release expected sometime in Q4 2021. Now, thanks to the Black Ops Cold War Season 5 update, dataminers have found images showcasing that Call of Duty: Vanguard will have an open beta and even the Ultimate Edition bundle contents for the game.

Please note: We have checked the leaked images but unfortunately, Activision is issuing copyright takedown notices for the images, so we can't share them directly with you here.

Call of Duty: Vanguard open beta

There is currently no release date for the Call of Duty: Vanguard open beta. The only semi-official information at this point is how Activision teased "Vanguard is coming" inside the Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 5 trailer.

Images posted by The Cheeseburger Boys has since been hit with a takedown notice, as it appears Activision is not ready to share Call of Duty: Vanguard open beta details just yet.

Saying that, however, we viewed the images found in the Cold War files and it clearly shows a Call of Duty: Vanguard open beta, as well as signifying that there will be an early access period for those who pre-order the game.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Ultimate Edition bundle

Alongside the "revelation" that Call of Duty: Vanguard will have both an open beta and early access to that open beta, details on the Ultimate Edition for the game have also been uncovered. You can view the leaked image via Twitter but it might get removed soon.

From the leaked image, we can see that, if they are indeed correct, the Call of Duty: Vanguard Ultimate Edition bundle could include the following:

  • Early access to Call of Duty: Vanguard open beta
  • Three operator skins: Polina, Lucas, and Wade.
  • XP tokens
  • Some form of fire skull emblem
  • The Frontline Weapons Pack.
  • A Night Raid Mastercraft blueprint 
  • Blueprints for an AR, SMG and Marksman Rifle all with "Tracer Rounds".

At the time of writing, Activision has not officially unveiled Call of Duty: Vanguard to the world. The images found in the Cold War game files, however, do seem to be legitimate.

With that being said, always remember to take information such as this with a grain of salt. For now, we are anxiously awaiting the official reveal of Call of Duty: Vanguard, and hopefully, more details about the expected early access open beta.
