ELEAGUE hosted a Black Ops 4 charity tournament featuring top pros and members of the Call of Duty competitive scene.

The event was for a good cause, supporting the Call of Duty Endowment, which helps prepare veterans for new careers after life in the military. You can learn more about the charity on the Call of Duty Endowment website.

It was also the first chance to see professional players in an organized setting in Black Ops 4 for the first time and the highlights did not disappoint.

Huke showed why the World Champion Evil Geniuses roster wanted to team with him on EnVy, dropping a 40 bomb in Hardpoint against Pacman’s team.

The gamemodes for Black Ops 4 competitive have not been confirmed but Control seems like it may replace Capture the Flag. That is good news for Preistahh and FaZe Clan.

The popular Blackout mode was also on display and gave fans a chance to see pros messing around in a Battle Royale.

Methodz showed off his laser beam with unbelievable accuracy from long range to secure the victory.

Finally, it was eU’s General Manager Burns turning ZooMaa off the face of the universe. Ok, it wasn’t the cleanest turn we have ever seen and ZooMaa may have ran out of ammo, but eUnited is probably getting calls on Burns’ availability for the CWL season.

The clip also includes the bonuses of NAMELESS getting hyped and Silly laughing uncontrollably at what happened to ZooMaa.

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.
