Vanguard makes secret game changes overnight

A new Call of Duty: The Vanguard the update was released last night but since it didn’t require player downloads it went under the radar but made changes to the latest version COD play on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. If you’ve noticed a change in the Ship Haus 24/7 playlist, it’s because Sledgehammer Games has changed the number of players by team in the playlist. With the update, the number of players per team in Blitz has increased from eight to seven. Meanwhile, Assault is now six instead of seven and Tactical is now four rather than six. While other changes were made overnight, they were not discovered.

At the time of publication, it’s unclear why Sledgehammer Games made these changes, and for now, it also remains to be seen how much this will change the playlist meta. The changes for Blitz and Assault aren’t very noticeable, but Tactical going from six to four seems to be pretty substantial.

As always, we’ll keep you posted as the situation evolves. In other words, if Sledgehammer Games provides any insight into why these changes were made, they will be added to the story.

Call of Duty: The Vanguard is available worldwide via PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. For more information on the latest COD game and the series in general – including the latest news, rumors, leaks and speculation – click here.
