In the midst of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Lionel Messi is also in the news off the pitch. The Argentine striker will be one of the new characters in the famous war video game ‘Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2’, developed by Activision.

Through social networks, the announcement was made official with a video where you can see ‘La Pulga’ lending his image and voice. Now, fans of this action title will be able to enjoy the footballer on their console in a new facet totally removed from football.

Although the Argentine would not be the only player, as the Brazilian Neymar Jr. and the French Paul Pogba will also be part of the video game. In the revealed images you can see the weapons, outfits and custom animations of each of these figures.

For example, when it is Neymar who makes a drop, a golden Lion appears. Whereas when Messi gets it, he is a footballer kicking a ball.

For this new action title, Neymar was the first to appear on November 21. Later Pogba on 25 and now Messi. In the past, the game developer company executed this collaboration strategy.

Figures like Snoop Dogg, Rambo and Donnie Darko, among others, lent their image and voice to the video game. It is common for soccer players to appear in titles for consoles such as FIFA, PES or others dedicated to this field, but not in war or action productions.

Currently, Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi are focused on Qatar 2022, playing the World Cup with their respective teams.

In the case of the Brazilian, he suffered a small injury that will set him apart for a few matches in the ecumenical contest. Something similar happened to Pogba. Physical problems prevented him from attending the biggest football event. Lionel Messi has played two games in which he intervened with two goals and one assist.
