A series of images posted online to give CoD fans a glimpse of Call of Duty’s 2023 release, apparently a continuation of Treyarch’s Black Ops series.
Call of Duty: Vanguard launched just a short time ago, though fans may have already taken a look at what’s in store for both Call of Duty 2022 and CoD’s 2023 release.
Details about the game are still completely unknown, as such early news of a release within two years is rare.
However, we can safely assume that the game is in development by the minds behind the Black Ops series, Treyarch, based on the CoD developer rotation schedule.
A Reddit thread on December 30 shared what the poster said were leaked images of an alpha version of the 2023 CoD release.
Nice_Reputation_4784, who posted the leaks on a burner account, claimed they don’t know the original source, but mentioned they came from a private Discord server and to be careful with the images: “Take this with a big bucket of salt because I have no I have an idea who the original source is, but the images look pretty convincing, “they said.” These were posted on a private Discord that I’m on. “
Noting that the game looks strangely familiar to Cold War, the poster stated that: “The game appears to be using 99% Cold War assets, but that seems pretty typical for an alpha CoD. On the other hand, it could just be untrue, as things don’t tend to leak out that soon. “
The 12 images mainly show the user interface of the game. However, one image is a screenshot that was taken from the Moscow map from Black Ops Cold War, which was pointed out by CoD player zpoon.
Other images show ‘Zombies Factions’ and design goals for the game. However, it is quite possible that this is all simply an elaborate fake.
Despite the fact that CoD 2023 is almost two years away, other details about the game emerged in September. Trusted leaker Tom Henderson stated that Treyarch’s next entry in 2023 will be a “semi-futuristic” and “boots on the ground.”
Since the game’s launch isn’t set until 2023, these leaked images are worth taking with a grain of salt. Even if it’s real, it could also be possible that these images are related to something the developers are testing for an upcoming Black Ops Cold War update.
