"The Winter Siege is all about celebrating with the Call of Duty community," said Aaron Halon, Senior Product Developer, Multiplayer, Sledgehammer Games. "There’s a ton of content for everyone to play during this time from a reimagined Winter Carentan multiplayer map that’s now packed with snow to Gun Game to Supply Drops full of winter-themed gear and content all available throughout the Winter Siege."
