Jeff Leach, the voice actor who played the Ghost character in Modern Warfare 2019 and also in Warzone has been dropped by Activision after videos surfaced of him being a terrible human being.
Clips show him being misogynistic, sexist, and frankly quite vile, using lines such as ““I love how it’s always like some dirty, dirty, gross f**king looking emo b**ch who looks like she f**king has no chance of getting a bit of d**k in her.”.
It goes without saying that the video embedded in the Tweet below is NSFW.
Serious personalised intrusive sexism. Influence. Contempt. Violence! Serial offender! @TheZombiUnicorn

Activision released the following statement to Charlieintel.com.
Sexism has no place in our industry, our games or in society. Activision is no longer working with Jeff Leach. We strongly condemn these remarks. We are committed to delivering a fun and safe experience for all players.
Leach is an official streaming partner for Facebook Gaming but they have yet to comment on his behaviour.
While we know a new premium Call of Duty game will be released this year it seems that, like last year, the reveal of the new title will not occur until the latter half of the year. Until the release of Warzone Call of Duty titles were announced around May but Activision have rearranged their marketing strategy to allow Warzone more focus during the first half of the year before the new title gets all the headlines.
A leak on LinkedIn also suggests that Call of Duty Warzone is in production for iOS and Android. Call of Duty Mobile already exists and is incredibly popular but it does not include Warzone.
Activision Mobile has put up new roles! Teams are focused on Live Operations and content expansion across CoD Mobile and Warzone
Activision has previously out surveys asking if players would like to see Warzone on mobile devices and other jobs listings have mentioned “harvesting” the best features from the console version and porting them to mobile.
