Call of Duty Vanguard and Warzone may be underperforming when it comes to player engagement recently, but Activision Blizzard will look to rectify that by releasing Vanguard and Warzone’s delayed Season 2 in just a few days. Ahead of the big update, some key art has leaked, and it might be hinting at some interesting new features.
A key art image leaked by the backup account of ‘PlayStation Game Size’ – a Twitter account that monitors and mines data from the back end of the PlayStation Network – may give us a hint about what is coming in the Season 2 update. The image depicts three new operators leading an assault, with one of them riding a World War 2-era motorcycle.
But the most interesting part of the key art image is that the operators are also flanked by what appear to be two Russian T-34 tanks. While this might not be the most historically accurate fit, it could be theorised that the tanks may make their way into Warzone and the Pacific island of Caldera to spice things up a bit as playable vehicles. While this isn’t confirmed, and has not been suggested in datamines or leaks before today, it does seem suspicious to see tanks featuring so heavily in the key art for this update.
The key art also confirms leaks from last month that these three new operators would be making an appearance in Vanguard and Warzone. The leaks suggest that Thomas (on the left) is a Canadian operator, Anna (front and centre) is Austrian, and the enigmatic man on the right is named “Gustavo”.

In any case, the prevalence of the tanks in the key art suggests that we could be seeing new vehicles make their way into Call of Duty Warzone, even if this key art was found attached to Vanguard’s update file. We know it’s a long shot, but we can dream, right?
The Call of Duty Vanguard update is numbered version 01.012.000 and will be around 10GB, PlayStation Game Size states. With Season 2 being delayed so that multiple fixes and improvements could be made, the larger than usual update size certainly checks out. In a follow-up tweet to one user, the account also confirms that pre-load for the new update will be available from February 13.
