We’ve already had quite a few crossovers in Call Of Duty since Warzone launched at the beginning of the pandemic. Some of these have been a little zanier than others, like the recent Godzilla vs Kong event, or the addition of a Snoop Dogg operator. I can’t tell you how many Vanguard matches I’ve been in where entire teams are comprised of the famous rapper.
Truly, WWII is strange in its latest iteration.
Back during the Black Ops Cold War days the game had an action-hero crossover, with both Rambo and Bruce McClane (of Die Hard fame) making appearance in the game’s Item Shop as special Operators.
Now we’re getting a little bit of both—an action hero / classic sci-fi robot is headed to Call Of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone in Season 4. Terminator—played by Arnold Schwarzenegger—is coming to the games soon, though Activision hasn’t spelled out an exact date.
The reveal was made on Twitter.
Earlier today, the Call Of Duty Twitter account posted a picture with a bunch of gold bars and one silver bar. The theme for upcoming Season 4 is Mercenaries of Fortune, and loot and treasure feature largely in the promotional campaign. The silver bar had some letters on it, though they were quite faint.
Still, it was obvious enough that the word was SKYNET and that was confirmed later with a tweet that also read ‘they’ll be back’—riffing off of Arnold’s classic line. Skynet, of course, is the company responsible for the AI gone bad in the Terminator films. Whether we’re just getting a Terminator Operator or any other characters from the films remains to be seen.
Season 4 of Call Of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone kick off Wednesday July 22nd at 9am PT / 12pm ET. The new season will include new maps for Vanguard and a new small Resurgence map in Warzone. You can read all about the new map and check out some screenshots of its cool new locations right here.
