If you’re a fan of Call of Duty and Dune, the fantastic movie by director Denis Villeneuve, this is your week. While it was leaked a little over a month ago that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone would have a crossover with Dune, it wasn’t until the beginning of this week when the Call of Duty Twitter account officially confirmed it.
The Call of Duty team hasn’t provided many details about the package’s content, of which we only know that it includes the Sardaukar armor. If you’re not familiar with the Dune story, the Sardaukar are incredibly powerful elite soldiers in the service of the Emperor Padishah.
The most striking thing about the arrival of the Sardaukar in MW2 is that the design of the uniforms used by Activision features three red stripes on the chest plate. Of course, Dune fans know that this is their standard attire, but many users who have commented on the official post seem to think that Activision is trying to promote Modern Warfare 3 with the armor.
Activision may have thought of killing two birds with one stone and decided to save this promotion for just this moment due to this coincidence, but it’s more likely that all of this is just a mere coincidence, and not even the people at Activision have noticed it.
Although the pack was announced for November 1st, it currently seems to be unavailable on any online store, so its price is unknown. It is also unclear what else the package might include, though it’s likely to contain several weapon skins. For instance, if we look at the Nicki Minaj pack that was released a few weeks ago, it also included a new finisher, a vehicle design, a sticker, a loading screen, and an emblem.
