In this year’s The Haunting event, Call of Duty: Warzone, developers, will include skins for Scream’s Ghost Face and possibly Donnie Darko.
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has filed a lawsuit against Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard, alleging that the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has refuted the allegations. As new information becomes available, the full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are updated.
Raven Software has confirmed that Scream’s Ghost Face will be included in Call of Duty: Warzone in time for Halloween, and a leak also suggests that a Donnie Darko skin will be included. The Haunting, a battle royale event approaching its second year, is expected to bring back Halloween-themed game modes and new operator cosmetics. While the developers haven’t said, much about The Haunting 2021, limited-time game modes like BR Trick-Or-Trios and Zombie Royale could bring Call of Duty: Warzone back.
Raven Software went all out for Call of Duty: Warzone’s first Halloween celebration last year. In Zombie Royale, the battle royale was taken over by zombified players, who returned to haunt their killers with supernatural abilities. Raven Software added cosmetics inspired by classic horror films in addition to limited-time game modes. Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Billy The Puppet from Saw were both available in the store. The creators also released a reworked map that included recreations of well-known horror movie locations. In addition, developers added Halloween Easter eggs to Verdansk, such as transparent ghosts, chest jump scares, and a secret Jigsaw lair.
In a tweet, Call of Duty confirmed that a Ghost Face cosmetic would be added to Call of Duty: Warzone on October 19 to commemorate Halloween. Recent leaks suggested that Donnie Darko would get his skin in time for Halloween, according to Dexerto. One leaker backed up the claims, releasing a video from the Season 6 update on October 6 that featured Frank, the mysterious figure in a rabbit costume, and the Jet Engine execution.
Shhh… the scares begin on 10/19. https://t.co/JrjWqaIDcf pic.twitter.com/Hk1q5SJG8g

Raven Software confirmed the Ghost Face cosmetic on October 6 after it was leaked. The same leaker who claimed the Donnie Darko skin would be available in Warzone revealed it. While the developers haven’t confirmed the infamous rabbit costume, the psychological thriller will likely make its Verdansk debut. It’s unclear whether the skin will be released alongside Ghost Face on October 19 or if the cosmetics will be spread out. Raven Software has not yet revealed what else it plans to do in Call of Duty: Warzone to commemorate the spooky season.
The developers will likely include the limited-time game modes from last year, such as Zombie Royale, but new modes could be added. The Fortnitemares event has already begun, with a Frankenstein’s Monster skin joining the battle royale. Perhaps Warzone will try to compete with Epic Games’ massive Halloween event, The Haunting 2021, by adding new twists and turns. However, the event isn’t scheduled to start until October 19, and Raven Software isn’t expected to reveal any additional details on October 18 via the Call of Duty blog. Players will have to do until then with Season 6 of Call of Duty: Warzone, which was recently released.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Haunting event will begin on October 19.
