Vanguard players have been calling for a Ranked mode for some time now, and those prayers have finally been answered with confirmation that it is on the way.
Vanguard’s January 20 update delivered bug fixes after the delay of Season 2, which is great for the community who have recently been highlighting the abundance of issues in both Vanguard and Warzone.
As well as this, players were also given an update regarding Ranked Play, with an update from the Call of Duty League confirming its arrival isn’t too far away.
In a blog post on the official CDL website, General Manager Daniel Tsay confirmed that the mode will release in the near future, marking down February as its likely date.
“Ranked Play is planned to roll out alongside new Call of Duty: Vanguard game content in February,” he wrote. “We’re all very excited about the future of Ranked Play here and can’t wait to share more details as we get closer to its release.”
While Tsay didn’t go as far as giving an exact date, it’s likely that it will drop with Vanguard Season 2, which has been delayed to February 14.
