Call of Duty Director Appears to Throw Shade at Battlefield 2042

4.6
Call of Duty director David Vonderhaar has seemingly thrown shade at the new Battlefield 2042 trailer over on Twitter. This morning, EA and DICE finally pulled back the curtain on this year's new Battlefield game by not just dropping the reveal trailer, but revealing a release date and a slab of information on the PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S game. And despite the fact that the trailer is only a few hours old, it's already the second most-liked Battlefield trailer of all time. There are players bummed about the lack of a campaign and a battle royale mode, but by and large, the response to everything above has been met with excitement and hype.

Vonderhaar isn't the biggest fan of the trailer though, or at least he seems to have one issue with it. Over on Twitter, Vonderhaar -- Treyarch's Game Design Director and Unofficial Community Manager -- pointed out a scene from the Battlefield 2042 trailer and its similarities to a scene from a Call of Duty trailer, accompanied by a thinking emoji.

Below, you can check out the tweet for yourself, which at the moment of publishing remains up, despite a bit of backlash:


Now, it's worth noting it's not 100 percent obvious what Vonderhaar is implying here. He appears to be implying Battlefield 2042 lifted the scene in question, but this hasn't been confirmed.

Whatever the case, the tweet has both Battlefield and Call of Duty fans talking, and at the moment it looks like Call of Duty 2021 and Battlefield 2042 are going to reignite the COD vs. Battlefield rivalry, which disappeared after the lackluster Battlefield V.

Glock- What a joke, Battlefield had vehicles before COD even did. Get the hell out of here, it's a community video based off plays made.
Considering Treyarch is the worst COD maker, i'd sit down.


back in 2003 to 2010 id agree with you but my god this comment is the most stupiest one, and i post some sh*t post comments in my life.
but even in 2010(was their last good cod game) but modern day infinity ward is the worst cod developers.
