Robert Geistlinger, who serves as the president of Arcane Wonders, confirmed that the company has only been given the requisite license to work on this project. He, however, added that the Activision team has been very generous and allowed the company to use a bunch of tools and properties pertaining to Call of Duty to ensure the board game lives up to the kind of expectations fans have from it.
A Kickstarter campaign, designed to promote the game, is expected to be out towards the end of the summer season. Multiple goals funders will be associated with this Kickstarter campaign and one will be to unlock them one after another after embarking upon the fundraising journey. Along with weapons and modes, additional maps, pre-painted miniatures and co-op campaigns have been planned. The game’s setting will follow the timeline of the rebooted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
