Call of Duty 2021 might soon have a closed alpha as "Slipstream" appears on the backend of the Sony PlayStation Store.

"Slipstream" is likely just the codename for the Alpha of the upcoming COD.

It is that time of the year again for Call of Duty fans to get excited about the next game in the series, and it looks like Activision is about to get the ball rolling soon enough.

With the last entry in the series, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Activision and the studio let the players in for a Closed Alpha of the multiplayer mode. Essentially, players could jump into the multiplayer mode and duke it out with other players who chose to participate and help Treyarch get feedback directly from players while the game was still in development.

It looks like the rumored “Call of Duty Slipstream” might be following the same route, as the internal alpha showed up on the Sony PlayStation Store with a 35GB file size.

Call of Duty 2021, “Slipstream” Alpha pops up on Sony PlayStation Store

As with all the previous entries in the series, “Slipstream” seems to be the code name for the Alpha. With previous alphas having similar code names such as:

  • Modern Warfare – Pavelous
  • Black Ops 4 – The Breach
  • Black Ops Cold War – The Red Door

Therefore, it is pretty much a given that “Slipstream” is simply just code for whatever Activision has planned next. The next game in the Call of Duty franchise is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, who had previously worked on Advanced Warfare as well as WWII.

According to most rumors on the internet, the next game in the series is going to be titled “Vanguard”, which points to another World War-era setting. Sledgehammer Games have proved themselves competent with previous entries in the series, especially WWII.

Sledgehammer Games will have to pull out all the stops this time around as EA and DICE will prove themselves to be quite the foil with Battlefield 2042. Nevertheless, gamers win are the ultimate winners as strong competition always gives way for innovation and quality.
