The collabs around Godzilla vs. Kong continue, well over a year after the movie’s release. Today, Activision announced an upcoming event for the games Call of Duty Warzone and Call of Duty: Vanguard. Coming May 11th 2022, the start of Vanguard‘s third season, the event will see both Godzilla and Kong from the MonsterVerse invade the world of Call of Duty.
To celebrate the upcoming event, which is called Operation Monarch after the organization from the MonsterVerse, Activision has released a cinematic trailer. The advert shows off some impressive CGI of both Godzilla and Kong that does well to match their onscreen looks.
While Operation Monarch is a bit of a surprise, especially as there is no near term film coming in the MonsterVerse franchise, the event itself had been teased prior. Below is an example of one of the semi-vague promos done leading up to the official announcement around the event:

While details about the event are scarce, they will likely trickle in as we get closer to the May 11th date when it kicks off.
