Yesterday, Mashable was handed a short 27-second video featuring Kit Harington. No, it’s not a Game of Thrones or Jon Snow leaked or spoiler (is it!?), but it’s still pretty darn cool.
According to unnamed sources, Harington is in the midst of working with the team at Activision for the next Call of Duty installment due out this fall. In the video you can see Harington being wheeled into a large, lit up structure. What is it you ask? Why the sudden tie to massive video game franchise? Well, it’s a motion capture device!
Mashable is also keen to point out (via ESPN) that the image below of NFL star Marshawn Lynch, shows him in a similar type of rig when preparing for his minor role in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 last year:
To be clear, there is no confirmation that these reports are true, yet. Activision has yet to comment on the rumors and speculation and there has been no word from Kit Harington or his camp either.Everyone’s favorite Game of Thrones star wouldn’t be the first big-name actor to dawn the COD mo-cap treatment.
Everyone’s favorite Game of Thrones star wouldn’t be the first big-name actor to dawn the COD mo-cap treatment. Aside from Lynch (above), Kevin Spacey appeared as a major character in Advanced Warfare as a big part of the single player campaign.
With E3 just days away and Activision doing its own thing at the show, we’ll see if an appearance or announcement around Harington’s involvement actually happens. Entertainment Weekly also states that they’ve been told more information is on its way this week.
What do you think? Jon Snow in space sound good to you?
David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Roller Coaster Tycoon, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, Apex Legends, and indies like Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
