Stefano Sollima , director of Soldado among others, revealed that Activision no longer considers an industrial priority “ to be the Call of Duty .
Sollima had been appointed director of the film tie-in just under two years ago and since then work has continued to a rather advanced stage.
However, “the Call of Duty film has remained a bit like this” , he explained to his BadTaste colleagues on the occasion of the presentation of the ZeroZeroZero series.
“We wrote the script with Scott Silver, who is what Joker wrote “, confirmed Sollima, ” and let’s say that the idea of expanding the universe cinematically, the world of Call of Duty is no longer (at the moment ) an industrial priority of the group “.
” So, trivially, it has stopped, which happens quite frequently there in America, “ he added. “He has remained in the limbo of” now let’s see … ‘”.
A difficult aspect of the announcement of the project, since in recent years Call of Duty has had a substantial recovery after a few chapters of downturn and it was thought a film would be the ideal bank for further expansion of the brand.
As for video games, Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has just begun and seems to have given way to the arrival of a battle royale mode.
