Call of Duty: Vanguard, the newly released WWII first-person shooter game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision, will have a crossover with the manganime Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack the titans in Spain) as shown by the code of the title files.
The usual dataminer dedicated to the saga Call of Duty @_Nanikos_ has revealed on Twitter several code snippets discovered after analyzing the Vanguard that refer to an Operator (the characters that players control in multiplayer) referred to as “aot_titan”; “aot” is the acronym for Attack on Titan, the title that Hajime Isayama’s work has in the Anglo-Saxon countries.
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.
Other dataminer recognized in the gaming community, @ZestyCODLeaks, has also discovered that there will be a melee sword (not to be a katana) which in the code has the code name “aot_swords”https://news.google.com/”s4_me_swordtitan”. That “s4” can refer to the fourth season from Attack the titans, which is divided into two parts. The first one ended in March 2022 and the second will be released on January 9, 2022.
Also, it looks like we are getting some sort of ‘Sword’ melee weapon that isn’t the Katana.
It is codenamed ‘aot_swords’/’s4_me_swordtitan’ and when I read ‘AOT’ I just think of ‘Attack on Titan’…just a tinfoil hat theory though
