While we already know that this year’s Call of Duty — Call of Duty: Modern Warfare — will be a soft reboot of sorts for the Modern Warfare saga, it seems there’s a spillover marketing/advertising of some kind that’s happening now between this year’s COD, and last year’s COD game, Black Ops 4.
If you go to the Black Ops 4 in-game store and check the “Modern Warfare” tab. you’ll be greeted with choices on which Modern Warfare edition you might want to pre-order. Well, one of these choices give a Black Ops 4 Captain Price pre-order skin that you can use in Blackout! If you pre-order Modern Warfare!
And in case it gets pulled, someone on Twitter also captured on video:

Will that be enough for some people to pre-order Modern Warfare? Well, given how some people spend thousands of dollars on gun skins, I wouldn’t put it past these same people to spend money just for a Blackout character skin. Of course, there’s no official mention of this yet, and Activision hasn’t announced this marketing ploy of theirs officially. I gather, they’ll announce it soon once the marketing for Modern Warfare ramps up.
In other Call of Duty news, the Black Ops 4 Operation Apocalypse Z is now live on PS4, and here’s the patch notes to see all the changes made, and new content added.
