The alpha and beta playtesting dates for Call of Duty: Vanguard have just been leaked online. We can expect to see some WWII action very soon, and from these dates, we think the reveal of the game must be coming even sooner.
Call of Duty Vanguard is having a tough year. The game has been known about for months, but the fans have sounded far from thrilled. After BOCW's release, it's hard to blame them. But after the recent news that Vanguard was bringing an upgraded anti-cheat system with it, fans might be a little more excited to find out when they can get their hands on this title...
When Is The Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha?
The Call of Duty: Vanguard alpha playtesting will begin on August 27th and will be only on PlayStation. This has been leaked by our favorite 'insider' Mr. Henderson:

Current Alpha date is August 27th.
We know that they're likely to schedule the alpha playtesting for after the official reveal, for obvious reasons. The official reveal will take place on thursday, August 19 in Warzone. Exciting times are afoot for Call of Duty.
When Is The Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta?
The Call of Duty: Vanguard beta playtesting will be on September 10-12 for PlayStation and September 16-20 for all platforms. Here is the original leak from Twitter:

Open All Platforms: September 16-20
Here's to hoping it's a real success - a lot of fans were prejudiced against the very idea of a WWII CoD, but I can see it working.

How Can You Apply For The Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha & Beta?
The beta playtest will be freely be available as an application in the PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and on Battle.net for PC, but the Alpha playtesting will require you to sign up for Activision Blizzard's playtesting program here. And before you rush to sign up, we have some bad news for a lot of readers:
We only test in Los Angeles, CA: Currently, we will only be reaching out to participants in the Greater Los Angeles area. However, if you are not in the area, you can still register with us as we may eventually expand to other locales and include you in other online questionnaires as well.
With leaks being as widespread as they are, and potentially devastating for games (as in the case of The Last of Us Part 2), this is understandable. Still, the beta will be for everyone at least.
