Earlier today, the official Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal trailer was released along with confirmations about Call of Duty: Warzone and its integration in Vanguard. As fans would expect, the two titles will merge with each other after Vanguard releases on Nov. 5. This is similar to what happened when Black Ops Cold War released in 2020.
However, according to Activision, this integration will bring unprecedented features and updates to Warzone. Fans of the battle royale have every reason to be excited. All of the details released today are found below.
The Warzone integration in Vanguard
As previously leaked, there’s an entirely new experience coming to Warzone in late 2021. The integration is expected to come shortly after Nov. 5 but Warzone may receive updates before then.
In one of the best pieces of news since Warzone launched in 2020, an Anti-Cheat system will arrive on PC when Vanguard releases. This is seemingly for Warzone only, but it could also apply to Vanguard. In addition to that news, Warzone will receive an entirely new map. This means that Verdansk, as players know it, will disappear.

This experience is furthered by new modes and playlists arriving when Warzone integrates with Vanguard. For fans worried about this integration, Activision has announced that Vanguard will run on Modern Warfare 2019’s engine. This ensures that there will be a seamless transition into Warzone. Players won’t have to learn two different games, as they had to with Cold War and Warzone this past year.
When the integration arrives, the weapon pool of Warzone will be updated with Vanguard weapons and equipment. However, players will reportedly still be able to use their Modern Warfare and Cold War weapons. Those weapons won’t be found as ground loot, though.
Activision has yet to release a date for the integration of Warzone and Vanguard, but fans can expect it sometime soon after Nov. 5.
