European based esports organization Red Reserve have added Ben ‘Bance’ Bance as the fifth player of their professional Call of Duty team for the upcoming Black Ops 4 competitive season. 

Bance was unveiled as Red Reserve’s fifth on September 19, in a post on the org’s official Twitter page.

The roster move was announced shortly after the upcoming season’s competitive format was revealed to be 5v5, as Red Reserve became the first major org to formally announce the addition of a fifth player. 

Bance will join a roster that is already considered to be among the best in competitive Call of Duty, featuring Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington, Rhys ‘Rater’ Price, Trei ‘Zer0’ Morris, and Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall.

After Skrapz joined the team halfway through the previous WWII season, Red Reserve went on to place second at CWL Anaheim and third at the Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs, before finishing in the top eight at the CWL Championships. 

Bance joins the org after spending the past two-plus years with Splyce, a period during which the team was able to place high at a number of events, including winning the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 during the Infinite Warfare season.

Unfortunately, Splyce’s roster fell apart after the team had a difficult end to the WWII season, culminating with a 17-24 placing at Champs.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
