UFC Superstar Conor McGregor is set to feature in the next release of the Call of Duty franchise after Activision confirmed.
Mystic Mac will feature in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare which is due to be released on November 4th with a statement on his website stating that he had signed.
"Acting in video games has experienced a massive shift in recent years and McGregor’s inclusion in Call of Duty, a multi-billion dollar first-person shooter series, provides evidence of these changes," authour Lee Dunphy said on themaclife.com
"The capture of McGregor’s signature will no doubt prove to be a shrewd piece of business for all involved. McGregor a global superstar, has set the fighting world ablaze and in a short space of time has conquered multiple pay-per-view and gate records, making the UFC, his current employers, hundreds of millions in the process."
The move should add further to McGregor's estimated net worth of $22 million, with the Call of Duty games being one of the most successful franchises in gaming, with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 grossing a record breaking $550 million in its opening three days.
