Gaming News Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 merges with the ultra-popular title, the unlikely World Cup game mode
The launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues at full speed. The developers at Infinity Ward and American publisher Activision aren’t slowing down as the title has just started its first season. There are also surprising surprises on the part of the operators and around the sport. You know soccer but have you ever met its distant cousin CODball?
- Call of Duty: Football Stars and a “CODball” that question
- Call of Duty MW2 becomes Rocket League World Championship!
That was obvious Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 had plans. Before the first information about the content of his first season, rumors circulated in the hallway about the presence of world football stars, three to be precise in the person of Messi, Neymar Jr. and Paul Pogba. It only took a few more days for officialization falls on social networks the shooter franchise. Recently, we even had details on the launch dates of these three characters leaving the soccer fields for the Call of Duty multiplayer battlegrounds.

However, at the time this additional information was published, there were still some gray areas. The arrival of these three world-famous players and the more than imminent start of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar seemed to be hiding something, but we had to put our finger on it nonetheless. In the last few days, only the term “CODball” could get us going, but it wasn’t particularly obvious since the fusion of crampons and assault rifle doesn’t seem self-evident. Today it is thanks to the new finds of a dataminer that we finally know what is behind the name “CODball” and only on paper we can hardly believe our eyes.
Call of Duty MW2 becomes Rocket League World Championship!
So according to CODSploitzlmgz who contacted the site insider gaming, this famous “CODball” would be neither more nor less than the fusion of the multiplayer parts of Call of Duty and… Rocket League ! An unlikely union which, again according to evidence collected by the dataminer and which has since been reported as copyright infringement, will see the players divided between two camps and seated on all-terrain vehicles competing in a map depicting the interior of a football stadium. The concept, meanwhile, would be similar to Rocket League and would consist of sending a giant ball into the opposing camp’s net while driving a vehicle.
So far, Activision has not released any official information about this limited-time game mode for the World Cup. Therefore, there are still some ambiguities surrounding this “CODball”, specifically the number of players that will compete on the field and the date of its launch in multiplayer by Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. In fact, one could imagine that it should land at the same time as the first football operator, on November 21st. Anyway, it will be necessary to await a speech from the editor or developers to fix them clearly.
