Call of Duty player Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson has put rumors that he is set to be dropped by eUnited to rest after speculation circulated that his time with the organization has come to an end.

Discussion regarding the future of eUnited’s roster started on Sunday, March 3, when a number of their players began to tweet cryptic clues that seemed to show frustration among the players, specifically from Prestinni and his brother Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson.

While many believed that eUnited were just baiting Call of Duty fans – as has been the case in the past – it appears that the team were genuinely considering making a change, although those discussions seem to be now over.

eUnited appeared set to make a roster change, but it seems that will no longer take place.

Posting on Twitter on Tuesday, March 4, Prestinni stated: “Some things changed, so no changes with us will be happening any longer. Excited to get the team back on track and start practicing again. Putting everything that’s happened over the past few days behind us.”

Sanderson also asked for fans to stop harassing his eUnited teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks, who fans have blamed for the roster situation after an unconfirmed post from a Call of Duty Intel account stated that Clayster was the driving force behind the push to drop Prestinni, a claim that Eubanks vehemently denies. Clayster states that he has even received death threats regarding the roster move, something which he feels is unwarrented and extremely damaging to his public image. 

“I don’t mind the rumors or the bait,” wrote Clayster. “It’s all fun and games until people start sending you death threats. What people think of me and my persona is my lifeblood, having dirt thrown on my name is where I have issues.”

Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris stated that the last few days of uncertainty regarding the roster had been “rough” but was excited to get back to scrimming with the team ahead of CWL Fort Worth and the return of the CWL Pro League.

With Prestinni confirming that he will be remaining on eUnited, it appears that the line-up will remain unchanged heading into CWL Fort Worth which kicks off on March 15.

There are still a few days left for organizations and squads to make changes though, with the roster move window remaining open until Friday, March 8.

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.
