It’s important to note, however, that a half-hour pre-show will begin at 10:30am PT/1:30pm ET and feature several announcements.
Note: we’re only mentioning Call of Duty: Vanguard because it’s a headlining title at the show. That said, you should know that Activision Blizzard, the game’s publisher, is currently facing a major lawsuit from the state of California regarding years of alleged employee abuse.
