Call of Duty stars Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow and Ian ‘Crimsix‘ Porter have shared their thoughts on the future of the organization’s CoD roster amid reports that Immortals are set to take control of the historic esports brand.

OpTic have been a staple of the esports scene for over a decade, but after a tough year in 2018, it appears that the organization may be winding down, as reports of a takeover by Los Angeles-based Immortals continue to swirl.

As more news continues to break surrounding the future of OpTic, Karma has shared what he thinks will happen to their Call of Duty lineup – and it makes bleak reading for fans of the Green Wall.

What did Karma say about OpTic’s Call of Duty future?

With Immortals seemingly lined up to take control of OpTic Gaming and all of their affiliated teams, it leaves a large group of players in an uncertain situation as to where their competitive future lies with the organization.

While Immortals are seemingly keen to take OpTic’s place in the League of Legends LCS, Karma feels they have less interest in Call of Duty, and with franchising on the horizon for 2020, feels his time at the historic brand may be drawing to a close.

In a post discussing the possible sale on the /r/CoDCompetitive subreddit, a user stated that he thought Immortals would hold on to the OpTic CoD team until the franchised league came into place, at which point they would drop them as they felt it was unlikely that they would pay the $25 million buy-in.

Unfortunately for OpTic fans, Karma agreed with the comment, writing: “I’d imagine this if it were to happen, but who knows,” confirming that he felt they would be forced to move on if OpTic’s sale does indeed go through.

Crimsix chimes in on potential sale

Just hours after Karma made his comments about the ongoing situation, Crimsix shared his own thoughts via a post on Twitter, in which he said that he hasn’t given the potential sale much thought since it’s out of the players’ hands. 

Scump has a simple reaction

Unlike his two teammates, Scump did not have much to say about the potential sale, instead opting to tweet out a GIF of himself to express his frustrations.

Although he did not specifically mention that the GIF was about the buyout reports, the timing seemed way too appropriate for it too have been about something else.

Will Immortals buy OpTic Gaming?

According to a report from Esports Insider, Immortals are “close” to finalizing a deal to take control of OpTic Gaming.

    What would happen to the rest of the OpTic lineups is currently uncertain, but with a deadline for the sale rumored to be set for May 31, it seems like we will probably find out sooner rather than later.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
