Call of Duty Vanguard will be running on Warzone’s engine, allowing for a smoother integration between the two games.
Call of Duty is moving engines again for 2021, this years title Call of Duty: Vanguard which is development with Sledgehammer Games will be running on the same engine as Warzone.
Warzone’s engine was first debuted by Infinity Ward back in 2019 with Modern Warfare although it did not make a comeback with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
Developers Treyarch and Raven Software created Cold War using the same tech that has been used in the past few Black Ops games instead of adapting to the new Warzone engine.
Now it seems that Vanguard will be using the core engine that was used for Warzone while still using some that has been used in Cold War.
Danny Chan, the senior principal at Activision said “Our team at Sledgehammer Games has been working closely with Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and our other studios to advance the Call of Duty engine that was first introduced with Modern Warfare”.
Chan followed on by saying “We’ve integrated and improved technology, while building exciting and powerful new systems specifically for Vanguard.”
Aaron Hanlon, the studio head at Sledgehammer Games has explained that sharing this tech between the titles will “seamless weapon integration and operator play balance”, this will come as good news to fans as hopefully this will improve their experience after the integration.
Hopefully this decision will ensure that the integration will be smooth sailing, especially since Warzone’s integration with Cold War ran into a few hiccups when over 30 weapons were added into the game after one patch.
Many players had noticed a host of balancing issues with the weapons along with some guns not being as loud as they once were.
Of course, just because they will use the same engine doesn’t mean that these issues won’t happen, but there is a good chance it will be an improvement from what we have een in the past.
