As we get nearer and nearer to the expected release window, fans are getting nervous. We've already seen so much from competitors like Battlefield 2042, so when will we learn more about Call Of Duty 2021?
LATEST - Slipstream Has Been Uploaded To The PlayStation Store
The Call Of Duty 2021 Alpha, titled Slipstream, has been uploaded to the PlayStation store. It cannot be downloaded unless you have specific authorisation. Given the size of the file, this appears to be only a portion of the game as the last few Call Of Duty titles have been massive in size.
It appears that we are one step closer to learning about the 2021 Call Of Duty title and a similar Alpha, called Red Door, was in place for Black Ops: Cold War not long before release.
What Is Call Of Duty: Slipstream
It's likely that Call Of Duty: Slipstream is a codename for either an internal alpha test, or planned external alpha test. All has been very quiet with Call Of Duty this year so it's hard to get an answer on what this upload is.
This has been done with Call Of Duty titles in the past. Small slices of the multiplayer aspect of the game are tested out by the public, or they are tested exclusively by the team working on the game.
This is around the usual time for testing to commence provided that Activision have a typical release schedule in mind.
If the game is to release in Q4 2021, testing should take place, and finish up, by September. This then can then enable public testing. Activision will also want to ensure certification is taken care of so the game can release on time.
The find comes from noted leaker @_Tom_Henderson_ On Twitter who clarified that Slipstream is likely to be a codename and he still expects Vanguard to be the full release title.
