Modern Warfare 2 leak reveals Neymar and Pogba multiplayer skins

It definitely looks like Activision Blizzard will collaborate with FIFA ahead of this year's World Cup.


The average-lengthed single-player campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has been available for quite some time ahead of its launch on Friday, October 28.

Now that real-life footballers are becoming Call of Duty operators, the sky is the limit.

But, while it's only a matter of time before MW2 is here, dataminers continue to dig into the game's files to find out info that Activision Blizzard intends to hide. Case in point, dataminers have evidence of footballers coming to the marquee shooter as playable operators.

Earlier this month, we reported that Modern Warfare 2 might be getting superstar football players, Neymar and Messi, as DLC skins post-launch. Now, we've got more evidence that they're coming soon.

According to screenshots circulating online, dataminers found operator skins based on Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar and Juventus' Paul Pogba. These two are part of a long list of upcoming operators based on football superstars. The list includes Lionel Messi as well, as we might have already mentioned. Unfortunately, dataminers couldn't find his skin in the early access build of Modern Warfare 2, at least at the moment.

Fans are glad to find out that the upcoming footballer operator skins are consistent with the game's aesthetic.

Call of Duty is not a stranger to weird crossovers. Last year, Activision Blizzard brought in Snoop Dogg, among others. But, this marks the first time that a footballer will join the foray as a playable skin.

Most likely, the unannounced collaboration between Call of Duty and footballers likely has something to do with this year's World Cup. The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will run from November 20 to December 18.

Speaking of cosmetics, you'll receive bonuses for finishing the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 campaign, regardless of whether you pre-order a digital copy or not.

Finally, MW2's PlayStation-exclusive content includes an Operator skin and a high-level weapon blueprint.
