The second most tweeted-about gaming subject, Call of Duty, is undoubtedly the result of the free-to-play battle royale game Warzone, which launched on March 10th, as well as last week’s launch of Modern Warfare 2: Campaign Remastered. Notably, the MW2 remaster was actually developed by Quebec City-based Beenox.
