Call of Duty faces another accusation of plagiarism for the skin of ‘Doomsayer’

Heel to Heel Program

Within weeks of the Loyal Samoyed controversy, Activision Blizzard is at the center of other plagiarism controversy pertaining to his military shooter franchise, Obligations. And once again, the accusations point towards a completely new, yet familiar-looking character skin.

As reported by Polygon, the new plagiarism accusations are directed at Call of Duty: Vanguard The “Doomsayer” DLC skin, a terrifyingly imposing figure decked out in full-body black tactical armor, a Grim Reaper-esque hood, and one of those weird digital face masks that were popular during a hot minute at comic book conventions. the programmable faceplate sports a grinning skull, a common design for the billion-dollar franchise.

However, various parties have noted that the skin bears a striking resemblance to a previously teased skin for the still-in-development shooter. Dead drop. dead drop, as you may or may not know, is the NFT-based first-person shooter currently in development at fledgling studio Midnight Society, which was founded last year by controversial streamer Guy “Dr. Lack of respect” Beahm.

Teased skin has been featured by dead drop Midnight Society developer and studio head Robert Bowling and veteran FPS developer who previously worked with Infinity Ward on titles from the Obligations franchise. Bowling responded to the reveal of the Doomsayer skin on Twitter, simply offering a curt “At least put my name on it.” Recurring Call of Duty character “Ghost” frequently adorns skull-based face costumes, setting a precedent for the Doomsayer look. But still, it’s undeniably weird.

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, this new controversy comes just a fortnight after Activision Blizzard released another Obligations skin, Loyal Samoyed, after the publisher was accused of stealing the fan artist’s design and Cod player Sail Lin, whose “Monster Army” project features a wide range of anthropomorphic figures Cod character concepts, including a Samoyed doctor in nearly identical uniforms.
