Aaron Sampson and Richie Bracamonte are here to talk about the COD’s rumored return to World War II. This can be to the detriment of burnt-out Call of Duty fans, but could also lead to more interest in Battlefield 6. Rumored to take place in the 2030s and feature Battlefield 3-style multiplayer, die-hard Modern Warfare 2019 fans may have a place to call home in 2021. In the past few months, strange and seemingly dying support from Infinity Ward has left fans puzzled. New weapons like the RAAL Light machine gun and the CX-9 submachine gun have been halfway added into some game modes, and 3 new maps were quietly added in only to be removed days later.
Another leak has surfaced revolving a new Warzone experience. An unfinished trailer leaked that shows off an 80s version of Verdansk. Strangely, it appeared to feature some assets from Cold War: Prominently the Duga 2 array from the game’s optional final mission. Aaron discusses his theories on how we’re going to find ourselves in the 1980s. It definitely takes some suspension of disbelief and of course, time traveling zombies. But since nuclear weapons don’t cause time travel, there’s more to unpack than you might think.
Since zombies seem to be the glue holding the MW and Cold War together, Richie reflects on his fond memories of older zombies maps. As much as he cherishes them, he admits how much harder they were to survive. If you’re enjoying these chats about Call of Duty, speak up!
