Definitely curious news, but which suggests that yesterday’s leaks on Call of Duty: Warzone are actually truthful.
A journalist, Andy Robinsonfound out yesterday that he was suspended from Twitter for a certain period of time at Activision’s request.
The reason for this temporary ban is the latest sharing made by Robinson, which concerned the trailer leak of the 80s themed map of Call of Duty: Warzone, which we talked about in this news yesterday.
The trailer for the new map was evidently put online well before Activision’s plans, which did not think twice before sending a copyright report to Twitter forcing the social network to block access to Robinson.

Robinson himself, according to his latest tweet, was then able to speak directly with Activision to find out the cause of the suspension, and, without going into details, the journalist said to himself. “Satisfied with the result”. We do not know, as mentioned, what Robinson really meant.
It is curious that Activisio has decided to move in this direction, considering that the video leak has not really been confirmed. Having made a report for copyright infringement, in any case, really seems to be an indirect confirmation of the veracity of the leak, and that at the end of Season 2 Verdansk could change compared to how we know it today.
Update: Activision has been in touch to clarify why this happened, and explained the action that it intends to take, and I’m satisfied with the outcome. https://t.co/a4WfrlDSW8
