The release of a new version of Call of Duty for the year 2021 would not be surprising, since it was being suspected for a long time now. Though, the name slipstream might surprise a few since the name Vanguard was being affiliated with the new launch of the game so far. It is possible that Vanguard and Slipstream are two different versions altogether.
The name “Vanguard” has also been attached with the new release for a while now, which is said to be the theme of the 1950s in an alternative timeline where world war 2 never ended. The new 2021 game is being developed by Sledgehammer games studio, whose last big project was Call of Duty: World war 2, so it would not be surprising to see the new game being made on similar lines.
The name Slipstream being suspected out of nowhere is a bit shocking. Nobody knows what exactly it means. The official photo of “Slipstream” is not a great hint for any kind of information. It is still unclear whether it is an official name of the upcoming game or just a codename. These two names “Vanguard” and “Slipstream” can be codenames or working titles for the upcoming new game. Nothing is clear or official yet, so we must wait to hear officially from Activision soon.
