Captain Price, the famously mustachioed protagonist of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, could potentially be a new operator in season four of the game’s multiplayer if some teasers are to be believed.
First reported by Eurogamer, the teasers began with a message from the Call of Duty app, saying some sort of meeting would be taking place on May 21. That day, Activision sent out an email linking fans to a page on the Call of Duty website that included a mysterious video.
The video shows off a few familiar Call of Duty voices (one sounds like the CIA’s Kate Laswell, who handles player character Alex), a few gruff Russians, and one very obvious picture of Captain Price, complete with his fishing hat.
It’s a pretty obvious teaser that Price, who is referenced in the video as a “senior operator,” will have some role to play in the near future. With season four expected to start on June 2, that would certainly follow the trend of teasing past operators like the reworked Ghost and Alex for seasons two and three. Both of those operators were purchasable via the battle pass, with alternate skins available as high tier rewards for finishing the battle pass.
Thanks to Modern Warfare’s success, Call of Duty has also become the fourth fastest-selling release in recorded US history, and followed only Final Fantasy 7 Remake for the highest-selling game in April 2020. Call of Duty 2020 is also reportedly still releasing this year, despite possible complications stemming from COVID-19. Joseph Knoop is a writer/producer/operator/muppet for IGN.
