Activision has revealed that UFC superstar Conor McGregor will feature in the upcoming Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare. With the Call Of Duty franchise being one of the most successful entertainment properties over the last five years and Conor McGregor being one of the most popular sporting names, it makes sense for both companies to partner up in what set to be an explosive role.
McGregor follows in the footsteps of the likes of Kevin Spacey, who headlined Call Of Duty in 2014. The key difference being that Conor McGregor doesn’t have any any recognised acting ability.
The first images and vision of McGregor on set in a full body motion capture suit have also been revealed. It is thought that Conor McGregor will play a character that rivals Game of Throne’s Kit Harrington, who is said to be the games’ main villain.
Call of Duty Infinite Warfare will release on November 4th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
