New awaited dog/wolf operator skin reportedly removed from Call of Duty

According to a recent tweet by an insider, Activision has decided to take down a hinted skin from their upcoming update. The dog/wolf operator skin was said to be an addition to the Terminator Bundle pack to be released in August. This change was noticed when the Call of Duty blog changed the initially released poster for the bundle to a new one. After this fans started commenting on the tweet in response to the new poster.

The reason for this abrupt change is not clear yet. But some tweets suggest that it has something to do with the artist who made the original skin. It is being speculated that the artist who designed the skin does not work for the company, and thus had issues while selling his IP to Activision. The deal that was meant to take place a few days back is rumored to not have ended well. Therefore Activision might have decided to remove it from the update.

What to expect next?

The new Ultra Operator bundles are expected to debut on August 1st till the 31st of the month. During this players can buy the Tracer Pack: T-800 and Tracer Pack: T-1000, inspired by the iconic 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day. This bundle will be available for a limited time only and will also include some new weapon blueprints, along with some other items. This pack will be available for both, Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone.
