Activision Has a Curious Justification for Missing Logo From Call of Duty: Vanguard Trailer

Published 08/21/2021, 1:38 PM EDT


Call of Duty Vanguard has finally seen its official reveal with the latest trailer. The studio hosted a massive in-game event in Call of Duty Warzone that rolled back the curtains from the new game. The studio used the same formulae for this year’s title and revealed it via Warzone. This strategy produced fantastic results for the studio and it looks to capitalize on the unique audience.

Removing the logo from Call of Duty: Vanguard was a creative decision

According to a report by VGC, Activision is in troubled waters that stirred major controversy in the community. It is being rumored that these problems with the court of law have compelled them to make this choice. However, the studio suggests that the actual reason behind this change is a creative one and not because of legal problems. No Call of Duty title has ever seen its trailers without the trademark logo of the parent company in Activision.

However, this serves as the first occasion where the studio has made a different choice. A spokesperson of the company offered justification on the matter and stated it was mostly a creative decision. It does not seem like the recent trouble had any role in the decision-making process.

“Call of Duty has continued to expand into an incredible universe of experiences. This was a creative choice that reflects how Vanguard represents the next major installment in the franchise”

Vanguard is going to be based in World War 2 era and it will bring forward a range of changes to Warzone. Leaks and datamined information have all pointed at the complete overhaul of the Battle Royale title. It could bring forward new changes to the current Battle Royale or it might lead to the addition of a brand new map. Warzone desperately needs another map that can bring refreshing changes to the game, which will prevent the title from becoming stale.
