Activision Removes Dog/Wolf Skin From CoD: Warzone Blog Post But Doesn't Explain Why

Dog gone.


A recent blog post for Call of Duty: Warzone/Vanguard Season 4 Reloaded included imagery that suggested some kind of dog/wolf skin might be coming to the games. Bizarrely, the text of the blog post never mentioned this animal skin, and now all imagery has been scrubbed from the blog post.

Call of Duty fansite CharlieIntel spotted the change and also linked to the work of artist Sail Lin, who uploaded very similar-looking dog/wolf artwork to Artstation in 2020.

The original dog/wolf skin was featured prominently in the lead image for the blog and in the text with the image below, showing a dog/wolf head on a human body firing a gun. Developer Raven Software also tweeted an image of the animal skin, and it remains online.

Activision has not provided any explanation for what's going on with this animal skin, and we've followed up with the company to try to learn more.
