Pete Davidson stars in new Call Of Duty: MW2 trailer

Activision has released a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 trailer featuring Pete Davidson. On his appearance in The Suicide Squad, Davidson plays an unlucky member of Task Force 141, who clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing. Ultimately, Captain Price (Barry Sloane) advises that it’s probably best for Davidson’s character to stay in the van…

“Now we know what Pete will be doing on Saturday night…” the video says of Davidson, referring to his recent retirement from Saturday Night Live. Watch the trailer below.

Modern Warfare 2 launches on October 28 for PC and consoles. It was developed by Infinity Ward and is rumored to be targeting Colombian drug cartels, at least in part. Leaks have suggested a beta is also in the works, with PlayStation users getting in first.

The trailer for the game’s world premiere will debut on June 8, followed by another reveal on June 9. It’s going to be a busy week for Call of Duty.

In a blog post, Infinity Ward art director Joel Emslie said Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most “ambitious, beautiful, bombastic, melting games Infinity Ward has ever made.” Emslie added that Modern Warfare 2 is “the magnum opus of this studio and it’s the kind of game I’ve been waiting for to be a part of my entire career.”

Microsoft is in the process of purchasing Activision Blizzard, including the Call of Duty franchise and all of its developers, but the series will also be released on PlayStation in the future. In a major shift, Activision will reportedly not be releasing a new Call of Duty game in 2023.
