Actor Josh Duhamel is known for his television and film work, but was also one of the main characters in 2017’s Call of Duty: WWII. It’s one of his two video game credits and, according to a recent interview he did with ComingSoon for Night of the Animated Dead, he’s also starring in an another upcoming video game. And this mystery project is also a game from Activision, a publisher still wading through multiple allegations and lawsuits.
While his role as High Volt in 2015’s Skylanders: SuperChargers was more limited, he lent his likeness, voice, and motion capture performance to Technical Sergeant William Pierson in WWII. When prompted on whether or not he wanted to do more motion capture or video game work, he stated that he was doing that very thing “with the same company” right now.
“I’m actually in the middle of shooting another one with that same company now,” he said. “We’ve been going in for several months. So, I’ll go in a few days every month, and just knock out a few days. It’s a different procedure in making these things. They can do it piece by piece because they’re kind of building it as they go. I can’t really talk about what the game’s about, but it’s pretty amazing. The technology, even since Call of Duty: WWII, how far they’ve come just in their ability to make things photo real. It’s unbelievable. I think it’s going to be a really cool game.”
It’s not clear what Duhamel is working on since he didn’t name a specific game. But given Activision’s increasing focus on Call of Duty, his previous role in the series, and the fact that Vanguard is also set in World War II in addition to being led by the same studio that led WWII, it’s likely that this mystery project is something related to Call of Duty.
It’s even possible that he is shooting something that will feature in an upcoming multiplayer season in Vanguard and Warzone. These seasons roll around about every two months and come with some cutscenes to contextualize them. And these trailers often contain familiar faces or names, which would be an easy way to bring back Duhamel’s Pierson. However, going in for “several months” might imply something bigger than just one multiplayer season (or Zombies-focused DLC) so whatever he’s working on may not be that cut and dried if it is indeed related to the shooter franchise.
