Yippee Ki Yay: Looks like Die Hard’s John McClane is headed to Call of Duty: Warzone

Happy Trails, Hans

Just yesterday, we got word that ’80s action star John Rambo was readying his bow for war in the battle royale world of Call of Duty: Warzone. And it seems that old Sly won’t be coming alone, as Activision has also been dropping hints that kamikaze cop John McClane — protagonist of the Die Hard series — will also be skydiving into Verdansk real soon.

A tweet on the official Call of Duty Twitter features a faux-advert for a company called “Nakatomi Duct Cleaning”. As film fans will realize, Nakatomi Plaza is the opulent skyscraper held to siege in John McTiernan’s excellent 1988 action flick, with the building’s duct system used by put-upon NYPD officer McClane — caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.

While there has been no official reveal or date for McClane’s arrival, yesterday’s teaser implied that John Rambo will be arriving on May 20. It seems unlikely that all of these Hollywood stars will drop on the same day — hell, it takes a month to save up for each of the highly priced prestige skins — but we’ll be sure to give you a heads-up when we hear that John is ready to join the party… pal.
