In the near future, Call of Duty: Vanguard may see a unique and intriguing crossover. Call of Duty: Warzone has linked up with Die Hard, Judge Dredd, Rambo, and other characters from the Call of Duty franchise in recent years. With Call of Duty: Vanguard, that trend appears to be continuing, and the next crossover might feature something from the popular manga and anime Attack on Titan.
The same Call of Duty dataminer that predicted Donnie Darko’s inclusion in Call of Duty: Warzone has just unearthed some intriguing details for Call of Duty: Vanguard. Despite the fact that Vanguard was only released a few days ago, files are already being examined. In the event of this discovery, it appears that an unexpected Attack on Titan crossover is on the way.
@ Nanikos_, a Call of Duty leaker, recently revealed datamined information from Call of Duty: Vanguard memory dumps that fans should find highly fascinating. Digging through the files, the words “swordtitan” and “aot titan” were discovered. That information suggests an Attack of Titan crossover is in the works, with one or more Attack of Titan characters joining the roster of Call of Duty: Vanguard Operators already in the game. There may also be items like calling cards, weapon skins, and other items of this kind.
According to Nanikos, the collaboration is expected to go live sometime in December. This element of the leak is purely conjecture, but Nanikos has a track record of hitting the mark in the past. For the time being, the thought of an Attack of Titans crossover with Call of Duty: Vanguard should be treated with caution, but seeing the data in-game is surely causing speculation.
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) pic.twitter.com/DiPALtUDY6

Attack on Titan just received a culture award, indicating that the manga and anime have had a worldwide impact. A crossover between Call of Duty and Attack on Titan makes sense from a sheer popularity standpoint. However, it’s not often that a mostly Japanese pop culture property makes its way into a game like Call of Duty (compared to something like Marvel, DC, John Wick, or Star Wars in Fortnite). Furthermore, Call of Duty: Vanguard is a World War 2-themed game, so collaborating with an anime that features people fighting enormous monster-like things is nearly off-putting. If this datamined find is accurate, only time will tell.
