Activision Blizzard looks like it's drumming up hype for its upcoming Call of Duty game by inviting influential athletes to come and try the new shooter at a private event. Looks nice, wish I got an invite.
Riley Ridley, Tajae Sharpe, and N'Keal Harry were three such athletes invited to try out this year's new Call of Duty game. Obviously, they couldn't share specific details, but the three athletes shared images from the event on their social media channels. Here are the photos from the event.
Activision Blizzard seems to like working with sports stars to promote their upcoming Call of Duty games. Last year NBA star James Harden walked around wearing a Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 hat before the actual reveal of the game. Something tells me Activision didn't hand out hats at this event as a result.
Rumor has it that the next Call of Duty game this year is a Modern Warfare title from Infinity Ward. Activision utilizes a revolving development cycle for its Call of Duty games with Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer all taking turns to develop a new Call of Duty game every year.
We'll have to wait for an official announcement which almost always happens around the summer. Infinity Ward is already confirmed for the new game, and the studio has been teasing the next Call of Duty on Twitter since as early as January.
