OpTic Gaming’s rumored Call of Duty lineup for the Black Ops 4 season has been spotted playing squads together on the Blackout beta.
Long-time OpTic members Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter were spotted playing with Thomas ‘TJHaLy’ Haly and Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell, hopping into some squad matches on the Blackout beta.
The lineup has been teased by the notorious intel leaker known as ‘CoDBurner’ on Reddit, who stated that he was 100% sure that the lineup was set.
It seems that the new lineup is spending some time playing together in the off season. It makes sense that they would start playing games together to build their relationships with each other, even if it’s a gamemode they likely won’t be playing in a competitive environment.
If the rumors are to be believed, Dashy and TJHaLy are set to replace Methodz and Octane on OpTic’s roster. Octane has already signed with 100 Thieves to join their new Call of Duty roster, but there has been no information about the future for Methodz.
While this is, on paper, nothing more than four friends playing the Blackout beta together, it will be interesting to see if they are also representing OpTic when the Black Ops 4 competitive season starts in Las Vegas on December 7
Call of Duty professional players, and the community at large, have taken an immediate liking to Call of Duty’s new battle royale, Blackout. The beta went live on Monday, September 10 on PlayStation 4, with the beta releasing on Xbox One and PC set for Friday, September 14.
