KEY POINTS

  • "Call of Duty: Vanguard" officially released on Nov. 5
  • It could get a crossover in December as suggested by recent datamining activities
  • Activision hasn't yet said anything about "Attack on Titan" crossover on the game

A recently uncovered data seemingly confirms the arrival of "Attack on Titan" on Activision's latest installment this year, "Call of Duty: Vanguard."

Industry insider and dataminer who goes by the name _Nanikos_ shared on Twitter that they have discovered multiple strings of code in "Call of Duty: Vanguard" referring to aot_titan as an operator and another code that reads, "swordtitan."

For the uninitiated, operators are playable characters in the "Call of Duty" series, particularly in multiplayer and "Warzone" modes.

The general assumption within the community is that these codes are pieces of evidence pointing to the possible crossover of the hit manga and anime series "Attack on Titan" on Activision's latest installment. The insider also suggested that if this collaboration is indeed in the pipeline, gamers can expect this to take place in-game sometime in December.

"Been quite a few things found in memory dumps for vanguard. The most interesting one being a mention of a  "swordtitan" aswell as an "aot_titan" operator. The theory is that there'll be an Attack On Titan crossover for vanguard (Probably sometime december if that is the case)," the insider claimed."

Meanwhile, another "Call of Duty" insider who goes by the name Zesty shared the same findings in "Call of Duty: Vanguard." According to them, the aot_swords code could be the name of a melee weapon. Insider and dataminer _Nanikos_ also shared an image on Twitter which they have dug up from the game that seemingly aligns with the blades from "Attack on Titan."

"Also, it looks like we are getting some sort of 'Sword' melee weapon that isn't the Katana. It is codenamed 'aot_swords'/'s4_me_swordtitan' and when I read 'AOT' I just think of 'Attack on Titan'...just a tinfoil hat theory though," Zety shared.

Activision has not yet commented on the possible "Attack on Titan" crossover on "call of Duty: Vanguard." Fans are advised to take the latest datamined information as highly speculative at this stage.

"Call of Duty: Vanguard" officially released on Nov. 5. The game is available on various gaming platforms including Xbox Series X and Series S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
