Infinity Ward has worked on both Call Of Duty: Warzone and the 2019 reboot of Modern Warfare. It was reported in September of this year that the 2022 Call Of Duty title will be a sequel to the Modern Warfare reboot, as developed by Infinity Ward.
Referred to as “Project Cortez”, the game was leaked as part of the datamined titles from Nvidia’s GeForce Now. According to insiders the game will feature US special forces fighting against Colombian drug cartels in a covert war.
The title “Project Cortez” is also apparently a reference to the film Clear and Present Danger, as the villain in that film is called Colonel Félix Cortez, a film that also involved Colombian cartels.
Guns from Call Of Duty: Vanguard have also already been working in Warzone, as a player uploaded a clip to Twitter showing the StG in action in a private lobby, whilst images have surfaced of the same gun with Warzone attachments.
In other news, EA has spoken about the loot-boxes and purchases in some of their games like FIFA and noted that nine out of ten purchases are made with currency that you cannot obtain through real money.
EA chief experience officer Chris Bruzzo said “we work with Sony and we work with Microsoft to also institute spending controls as a default for children. Kids should not be spending in FIFA full stop.”
