Fans suspect John McClane, protagonist of the 1980’s action film, Die Hard, could make an appearance in Warzone this season.

The suspicions stem from a brief teaser on Twitter, published via the official Call of Duty profile. In a single tweet, the profile made reference to the film by advertising a “Nakatomi Duct Cleaning” service with an associated website url. Die Hard fans were quick to spot the reference as McClane’s wife works for the corporation of the same name, located in a related plaza. Additionally, the year of the service’s establishment corresponds to the year of the film’s release: 1988.

Die Hard’s John McClane Could Be Coming to Call of Duty: Warzone

The website, itself, was full of references, as well—both to Die Hard and Warzone. For example, the blurb on the landing page states its staff are “experienced in squeezing through even the smallest of air ducts” and trained to “systematically eliminate them one by one.”

”Contact us for all your needs in Verdansk and ask about our Christmas party discounts,” it continues, likely making a more colloquial reference to Die Hard’s popularly-elected status as a holiday classic.

Additionally, those who click the “Schedule an Appointment” button at the very bottom are swiftly redirected to composing an e-mail addressed to one “john@nakatomiductcleaning.com.” There is no word yet on what a possible response to booking could be.

As if that wasn’t enough, the game profile went on to quote retweet a reaction to their brief tease, replying with a simple emoji covering its mouth. However, Activision has yet to come forward with a statement officially offering a time and/or date when John McClane would be making his debut.
