Call of Duty
The release date for Call of Duty: Vanguard is quickly approaching and fans need only wait a couple more weeks to get their hands on it. For Warzone players, though, they’ll have to wait a bit longer for some fresh content. Activision stated that the Warzone and Vanguard integration, as well as the Anti-Cheat, is coming sometime after Nov. 5. However, the company hasn’t stated a confirmed date for this. That didn’t stop leakers, though, who dug into the files and supposedly found the release date for the integration.
Leakers have been digging into the files of every new and old Call of Duty title for years. This common practice in multiplayer gaming allows players to potentially see upcoming content before it is officially revealed. This Warzone/Vanguard integration leak is not yet confirmed and there appears to be some controversy around its discovery.
Warzone and Vanguard integration date supposedly leaked
The leak comes from data-miner @ZestyCODLeaks, who has accurately leaked Call of Duty information in the past. They dug into the game files and discovered a string of code that hints at “Chapter 3” in Vanguard along with the date of Dec. 7.
Vanguard Integration is coming on December 7th, 2021!

Dec. 7 is the anniversary of the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor, prior to the U.S. entering World War II. Quite fittingly, Vanguard is a game set in the World War II era.
However, after ZestyCODLeaks posted this information, another account @CODTracker stated that the date was false. They didn’t offer another date but simply advised fans to “remain tentative.” @ModernWarzone also stated that the Dec. 7 date was incorrect without offering a date to supplement ZestyCODLeaks’ original find.
Of course, in the files, “Chapter 3” may not refer to the integration. However, players should gain some confirmation on these leaks closer to or after Vanguard’s launch on Nov. 5.
