Dune comes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on November 1.
Call of Duty publisher Activision is busy prepping for the launch of Modern Warfare 3, but that doesn’t mean the gears have stopped turning in Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone. In fact, the two games are in the thick of The Haunting event, which brings the spooky Halloween season to the battlefield. That’s not the end of the cycle though, Activision announced today that it will be bringing yet another crossover to the game before fans turn their attention to MW3. On November 1, MW2 and Warzone will see a new Dune bundle drop into the in-game store.

In today’s announcement, the Call of Duty team didn’t share many details about what’s coming in the bundle. All we know so far is that the Sardaukar outfit is going to be the focus of the bundle. If you’re not up-to-date on your Dune lore, the Sardaukar are the Padishah Emporer’s elite military force. They are incredibly dangerous and their unique fighting style can be seen in the 2021 Dune film.
What’s interesting about the Sardaukar coming to MW2 is that the uniforms Activision is using have three red stripes on the chest plate. Of course, fans of the series know that’s their standard garb, but many in the comments on the official post seem to think Activision is trying to promote Modern Warfare 3 with the armor. Obviously, Activision may have saved the promo for now because of that coincidence, but it’s worth remembering
