However, a recent finding found solid ground after many online websites confirmed the information. The name of the upcoming Call of Duty title is now out in the open, and it confirms that the WWII theme is back. The presumed name confirmed by various websites is Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard. Moreover, Activision has confirmed in an investors conference that it plans to release a CoD title in the fourth quarter of 2021.

As far as the engine is concerned, rumors suggest the upcoming title will be based on IW8. This is the same engine Infinity Ward used to develop Modern Warfare 2019. Majority of the community also appreciated this particular engine for its immersive capability. However, the popular opinion shifted towards Treyarch as soon as BOCW released.

The studio might explore alternate timelines of different wars, like the Korean war. The Vietnam war is another probability, but we have to wait to find out what is coming.

Also, a remaster of an old title might not be the best option for the franchise. The community is mostly infuriated with the lack of attention towards the game that makes it a frustrating experience at times. Also, with the advent of new BR and multiplayer titles like Battlefield 6 and Halo: Infinite, the future is indeed rough for CoD.
