Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren will appear on the next episode of the CoDCast following his removal from Splyce’s Call of Duty: WWII roster.

The Call of Duty: WWII season started strong for Tommey and Splye as the European team achieved a second place finish at the first major event of the year, CWL Dallas.

Unfortunately things quickly deteriorated with a 9th – 12th at CWL New Orleans and 13th – 16th at CWL Atlanta, both of which meant that they finished out of the money.

The CWL Pro League didn’t go much better as they missed out on the Playoffs but an incredible run through the losers bracket at CWL Birmingham showed what they were capable of when they were on form as they secured another second place.

But that high was followed by their biggest low of the year with a disappointing 17th – 20th at CWL Seattle and the team eventually made the decision to bench Tommey and look for a new player for Season 2 of the CWL Pro League.

The move came as a surprise as some people believed Tommey was the strongest player on the roster over the course of the year. Now those people will get to hear from the man himself as he will be joining NAMELESS on the next episode of the CoDCast.

It will be interesting to hear Tommey’s thoughts on his removal as well as his predictions for what Splyce will do in the future. Fans might also find out once and for all whether he will be playing for a team in Season 2 or sitting it out.

Also appearing on the show will be CWL commentators Joey ‘MerK’ Deluca and Clint ‘Maven’ Evans along with eUnited’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks.

The CoDCast continues to go from strength to strength and the next episode is sure to get even more exposure after NAMELESS officially announced his retirement on May 1st.

The show will air live on NAMELESS’ Twitch channel on May 2nd at 10pm Eastern.

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.
