Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its highly successful Warzone battle royal game mode harden new operators in Season 5. The trailer above alludes to the origins of Shadow Company, a three-man team that was initially formed under the Armistice military alliance to fight against an ultra-nationalist-backed Al-Qatala terrorist organization.
An official Activision blog post describes Shadow Company’s role after the crumbling of Armistice.
An elite PMC, Shadow Company operates outside the boundaries of the original Armistice. Forged from the fires of in-fighting between the Coalition and the Allegiance, Shadow Company has a framework and agenda all of their own.
Ostensibly Allegiance Operators who have grown impatient with Coalition progress under the command of Captain Price, Shadow Company is a splinter group formed without compromise, ready to take the war directly to Mr. Z and into Verdansk and deal with terrorist threats directly.
Highly skilled with a diverse range of expertise the Shadow Company consists of Rozlin “Roze” Helms (formerly Jackals), Velikan, and Marcus “Lerch” Ortega, the Company’s leader.
While new gameplay details haven’t been revealed, the Call of Duty Twitter account hinted that the long-sealed Stadium location may finally open, allowing players to loot, battle and of curse camper inside. Others have speculated that the the entire Verdansk map may transform into a nuclear wasteland.
If the Stadium had a name, what would it be? Our doors are open to ideas.
