Menendez is Not in Black Ops 3, Marshawn Lynch is Not the Villain Either

Treyarch is back at the helm of Call of Duty this year and we are every bit excited about it. Did you consider who the villains will be? Here’s an update you might want to know.

This skipped the eyes of many but the official Facebook page of Treyarch answered a fan comment recently who was inquiring about the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 villain Raul Menendez.

You would remember Black Ops 2 had multiple endings and for that reason, Menendez could not fit in with the story of Call of Duty Black Ops 3 which is why he has been ditched.

Moreover, you were wrong if you thought that Marshawn Lynch, the American footballer who plays for Seattle Seahawks, was going to play the villain. He is only making a special appearance.

Here’s the comment we were talking about:

So, a few things… Marshawn Lynch makes a special appearance in the game… he is not “the villain” (i.e. Menendez). The fictional world of Black Ops 3 carries through from the drone attacks of 2025. For the purpose of the new game, Menendez doesn’t play a part (it would’ve been difficult to do given the multiple endings of BO2).

In parallel news we have reported to you that Call of Duty Black Ops 3 DLC are going to be exclusive to PlayStation 4 for the first 30 days and that Zombies are going to make their way to San Duego Comic-Con.
