GMC Hummer EV goes digital to join “Call of Duty” this fall
- Blasting bad guys from a comfy couch is about to get a little more power, thanks to the upcoming introduction of the GMC Hummer EV in the Call of Duty series of video games.
- The Hummer will be available as a playable vehicle in Modern Warfare II (from October 28) and Warzone 2.0 (later this fall).
- Popular games previously included digital vehicles Humvees and Jeeps. Jeep even produced a small number of Call of Duty–special branded editions ten years ago.
The US military uses over 100 million barrels of oil every year, making it one of the biggest oil consumers in the world. The military has also spent millions over the past decade or more to convert some of its vehicles to electric. These seem like important details to know before you learn that the GMC Hummer EV will soon be available as a playable vehicle in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 video games.
GMC said this week that a digitized version of the Hummer EV will bring its estimated 1,000 horsepower and 3.3-second zero-to-60 mph time to Activision video games before the end of the year. The huge EV will be available in Modern Warfare II October 28 and Warzone 2.0 later this fall.
Other real-world vehicles have appeared in Call of Duty games before. The Jeep Wrangler made several appearances, for example, as did the original Humvee. Jeep even built a small number of Call of Duty–branded vehicles about ten years ago, including one Black Ops edition and a modern warfare 3 Editing.

GM Defense President David Albritton told GM Authority in 2020 that the Hummer EV “could provide an excellent base platform for an electric vehicle to be used in the military context.” GM has a long history of building vehicles for the US military. Last year, GM Defense made a unique concept vehicle based on its Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV) but with a zero-emissions powertrain. The all-electric vehicle concept was intended to show what is possible with military electric vehicles and what could one day replace the combustion-powered ISV for the US military.
