Call of Duty Vanguard ranked play options is coming in 2022, with Activision promising “a new level” of support for competitive players.
Treyarch Studio revealed on its official Twitter account that it’s working together with Sledgehammer games to bring a whole slate of competitive features to the game next year, including multiple competitive modes, visible skill ratings and new “new competitive rewards.” The studios also plan to collaborate with Call of Duty League to keep it all in, well, league with the franchise’s official esports arm.
We're collaborating with our partners to bring competitive modes, Ranked Skill Divisions, visible Skill Ratings, and new competitive rewards to #Vanguard Ranked Play in 2022.— Treyarch Studios (@Treyarch) October 29, 2021
More details to come! 🎖 https://t.co/bKcf2VVhwa
Black Ops Cold War got League Play in February 2021 after the game came out in November 2020, so this gives us some clue when Ranked play could come in 2022. That being said, it sounds like the plans for Vanguard ranked play are more ambitious and thus may take some more time to get right. Activision is leaving itself a lot of wiggle room within that 2022 release window.
