Now, some speculations claim that the sudden removal of “Call of Duty: Vanguard” is somehow connected to the issues that the giant game developer is facing right now. Although this is the case, you still need to remember that PlayStation hasn’t confirmed the real reason yet.  

Activision Still Enhances ‘Call of Duty: Vanguard’ 

Despite the issues that Activision is suffering from, the giant title maker still makes efforts to enhance its latest “Call of Duty: Vanguard.”

Dexerto reported that some of the upgrades were specifically designed to make the new shooting game a fair title. One of the most intriguing updates made by Activision is nerfing the game’s shotguns. 

Some players agree to the decision, but some fans still believe that the shotgun adjustments could ruin the new game. 

In other news, the launch of Activision’s new RICOCHET anti-cheat software is believed to be making the “Call of Duty: Warzone” hackers more anxious about their unfair tools.
