Arcane Wonders, a team best known for its world-renowned board games, has lifted the veil on an all-new Call of Duty tabletop venture.
Other than the Risk adaptation it received back in 2018, Call of Duty hasn't really had the chance to shed its digital exclusivity yet. Fortunately for fans of the tabletop scene, though, Arcane Wonders has now made a pact with Activision to build a board game based entirely on the beloved first-person shooter saga. If all goes according to plan, then Call of Duty: The Board Game should arrive in 2024.
“We're thrilled to be partnering with Activision to bring the Call of Duty franchise to the tabletop,” said Bryan Pope, CEO of Arcane Wonders. “As life-long Call of Duty fans, we've worked hard to capture the scope, stakes, and sheer intensity of the video games in ways that Call of Duty fans and board gamers new and old will love. We're looking forward to bringing the unforgettable fun and competitive frenzy of Call of Duty to game night for years to come.”

What Is Call of Duty: The Board Game?
So, what will the gameplay entail? Well, that's just it — Arcane Wonders has yet to reveal any of it. That said, details surrounding it will no doubt come packaged as part of its Kickstarter launch, which is expected to go live this Fall. Until then, anyone who's even remotely interested in the joint venture should divert their attention over to Arcane Wonders' social feed here.
Arcane Wonders, for those who don't know, is responsible for Foundations of Rome, Air, Land & Sea, and Furnace. Going by the company's history, Call of Duty: The Board Game will be the first of its kind. About time, too.
So, what's your take? Will you be following the project over on Kickstarter when it drops later this year? Let us know your thoughts over on our socials here.
