Speaking to the official PlayStation blog, Warzone’s lead developer said: “We’re definitely going to lean into the ‘80s and we’re definitely going to continue making updates.

Prior to the launch of the current crossover, some leakers believed that The Terminator franchise could be involved in a crossover, given the original launched in 1984.

It remains to be seen if that’ll happen, but at least Raven have got plans. We can only wait to see what they have in store.
