Activision Blizzard unveiled plans to bring Call of Duty League skins into Modern Warfare based on the brands and orgs participating in the inaugural campaign.

Giving their community the greenlight to “battle like the pros in the Call of Duty League,” fans will be able to pick up in-game gear celebrating the Launch Weekend for the new franchised league.

In the January 20 Call of Duty Briefings, the company announced that all 12 teams in the CDL will be getting everything from “home and away skins for Operators, weapon camos that can be equipped to any weapon, calling cards, and more.”

There’s a ton of hype revolving around the upcoming league, and players will be able to rep their favorite team’s logos and colors throughout their matchmaking games

The Minnesota RØKKR’s bundle was previewed with a peek into the black and purple colorway dominating their bundle.

The bundle for the RØKKR includes two Operator skins, a watch with the logo on the screen, a Camo based off the primary colors, and logos emblazoned on a charm, sticker, calling card, emblem as well as spray.

Meanwhile, fans of the Chicago Huntsmen, Dallas Empire, and Atlanta FaZe also got a first look at the items coming into the game.

Similar to the Overwatch League, Activision Blizzard will supply every form of customizable gear in Modern Warfare with the sights and colorways that the teams on stage wear.

The twelve teams debuting in the CDL are the Huntsmen, Empire, FaZe, RØKKR, Florida Mutineers, London Royal Ravens, Los Angeles Guerrillas, OpTic Gaming, Paris Legion, Seattle Surge and the Toronto Ultra.

There’s a ton of potential with these skins, which the tournament organizers are sure to explore as the league develops. Fans like Twitter user ‘vLionMan’ have already been making their own ideas for possible skins come to life.

Fans are already looking forward to downloading the bundles to rep in their Modern Warfare games.

The bundles will be available on January 24 under the Franchise Store tab in the Modern Warfare Store, where players can choose any one of the 12 inaugural teams of the CDL.

Update Jan 20 3:17 PM PST

Activision deleted every reference to CDL team camos from their earlier briefing announcing the new bundles.

The previous links to the Call of Duty Briefings for January 20 have been removed, with links to the announcement rendering Unexpected Error screens.

Update Jan 24 10:45 AM PST

The CDL team bundles have reappeared in the in-game shop, on the date that the previously deleted blog post said they would. Each in-game bundle is $10, and features a primary and alternate operator skin, a watch, a weapon camo, a charm, a sticker, a calling card, an emblem, and a spray.

All 12 bundles are available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
