In a stunning revelation that is due to send shock-waves through the competitive Call of Duty community, the new OpTic Gaming roster has apparently been leaked.

CompLexity Gaming player Doug ‘Censor’ Martin accidentally revealed OpTic’s new roster on the stream of Evil Geniuses player Justin ‘SiLLY’ Fargo, believing that the stream was turned off.

The new OpTic roster will apparently feature Team Kaliber’s Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni and Luminosity Gaming’s Sam ‘Octane’ Larew.

Judging by the fact that both are main Assault Rifle players, they would theoretically replace current OpTic players Mathew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow, both of whom have been heavily linked with a move.

The news was unintentionally leaked on SiLLY’s stream after the other members in the call – Octane, Methodz, Censor, and FaZe’s Thomas ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto – believed the stream was shut off or muted. 

Apparently, once everyone realized that the stream was still live, SiLLY deleted the VOD and the last 6 months of clips. However, Reddit user ‘Che23bacca’ managed to snag a video of the conversation.

 

Another Reddit post, made by user ‘clarence0193,’ breaks down the majority of the intel that was leaked on SiLLY’s stream.

Major intel leak from Silly’s stream. Silly left without muting his stream and the members in the call thought he had left (Octane, Methodz, Doug, Zooma) and dropped major intel on OpTics roster.

  1. Methodz is the 4th
  2. Octane went to Dallas to film his segment of vision. He has since returned home.
  3. Octane doesn’t get why Zinni is catching so much heat from CoD/OpTic fans. He thinks he is nasty
  4. Zooma explains that he got a payrise to stay of FaZe. He wanted to be part of the OG squad with Methodz heading to FaZe. He explains that the move would have been great for his CoD career. Methodz acknowledges this. Doug says he made the right decision because, though OpTic is a better team for CoD, FaZe is the better brand overall, in his opinion.
  5. Methodz thinks their team will be nasty with this current meta. Octane agrees.
  6. They all realise that Silly has left his mic on and is streaming and collectively facepalm.
  7. Edit. Forgot to mention, they start scrimming tomorrow, according to Octane.

 

 

All of this information, which was apparently said live on the stream, seems to match actual events in recent days. 

Octane has been missing from recent LG scrims and had been “temporarily” replaced by FormaL. 

Also, OpTic’s next episode of ‘Vision’ is due to come out on Sunday, May 6th, which lines up with what is being said about Octane being in Texas to take part in it.

Moreover, the post also explains why ZooMaa and FaZe decided to stick together after the player was heavily rumored to be joining OpTic.

However, it would be wise to wait for official confirmation by the organizations and players involved before any finalized consideration is given to these intel leaks.

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.
