Activision says Call of Duty: Vanguard “didn’t meet expectations” because people don’t like World War 2

Call of Duty: Vanguard underperformed for Activision, and the publisher reckons that’s partly because some people just don’t care about World War 2.

In its 2021 annual financial report (spotted by Kotaku), Activision affirmed that Vanguard “didn’t meet our expectations, we believe primarily due to our own execution.” The company says it did not deliver “as much innovation in the premium game as we would have liked,” but also attributes some of the game’s mixed reception to its setting.
