Call of Duty 2021 to have a different version for last-generation consoles

Popular leaker Tom Henderson revealed that the hardware capabilities of Xbox One and PS4 won’t be enough for the next COD title. He continued by saying that it will have different versions for the new and older generation consoles to compensate for the lack of power. He also said that this might also happen with the next Infinity Ward title set to release in late 2022. But currently, no information about the difference between the two variants has been released yet.

It will be interesting to see the massive graphical jump Activision might make with the next COD title. With the release of Xbox Series S/X and PS5, fans will see a lot more games optimized for these consoles. Developers have started to create titles that can use every ounce of graphical power from the new generation. Players will see more frames, better visuals, and aesthetics that will make their experience more enjoyable.

Details about COD 2021 so far

Rumors have shown that the game will be titled Call of Duty WWII: Vanguard. This will be the first time Activision will go back to the World War since the release of COD WWII in 2017. Many prominent leakers believe that the title will showcase the story of the Korean War, which started in 1950. So it might not directly continue the story of the previous games in the War series.

More details of the game will arrive in the upcoming months when the developers release a trailer. But with the leaks about different versions of the title, fans won’t have to worry about sacrificing frames in older consoles. With the added features that will allow for better optimization, players will get the best possible experience without losing a lot in visuals.
