Following in the footsteps of Kit Harrington and Conor McGregor, Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton is now confirmed to be appearing in CoD: Infinite Warfare. Yes, really.
The three time world champion will be playing the part of an engineer aboard the Retribution – one of the last remaining United Nations Space Alliance’s warships. He made the announcement via his Twitter account, see it below.

Hamilton explains his inclusion in the franchise:
I’ve been a Call of Duty fan for long time, so it’s an absolute honour to be part of this game and the franchise. The experience of being put into the game – from the facial scanning process to working with the team on the performance capture stage and just being able to meet the developers at the studio to get a glimpse at all the hard work that goes into the game – this has been an incredible experience.
Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director Taylor Kurosaki has also spoken out about having Hamilton on board.
Everyone at Infinity Ward was excited to work with Lewis since we’re all huge fans of his. He came to Call of Duty with the same approach he takes to the racetrack, determined to nail his performance – which he absolutely did!
Hamilton joins Conor McGregor and Kit Harrington in the star-studded cast, though it’s not clear exactly how much he’ll feature in the game.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is mere days away from release, coming out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 4.
