Call of Duty TV series leak details

The video which was published on March 2nd, 2023, shows pictures of the members of Task Force 141.

Apparently they’ve also been involved with Amazon Prime in the past. The YouTuber also added that the series will reportedly have episodes that are 15 minutes long.
Talks of a Call of Duty live-action adaptation have long been doing the rounds. Back in 2015, Activision Blizzard even announced their plans of creating “original film and TV content” based on “ iconic and globally-recognized intellectual properties” which included Call of Duty. However, we ultimately never really saw anything substantial come out of this.
Regardless, this is a nice time for live-action adaptations of popular video game franchises bracing Hollywood, with series like The Last of Us, or Halo. So, who knows, maybe an adaptation of Call of Duty too is finally on the way.
