KFC Just Oven Roasted The Call Of Duty Team

If you thought KFC's chicken was juicy, wait until you hear the company's takes on gaming. The fast-food giant has added roasting to the menu, at least when it comes to the most recent Call of Duty: Warzone update. On Mar. 31, 2021, the official KFC Gaming Twitter account totally burned Warzone's Season 2 Reloaded update. Fans have been disappointed with the most recent update, mainly due to many unaddressed balancing issues.


The KFC Gaming tweet opened up with, "Call of Duty fans: 'Can you balance the guns and fix the game-breaking glitches in your update?'" Joking responding for Activision, KFC Gaming included a gif of Captain America saying, "No, I don't think I will," implying that none of the game's real problems have been fixed.

Below KFC Gaming's tweet, many gamers joined in on the roasting fun in the comments section. User @epicgamormoment wrote, "They have to release more overpriced bundles before they can nerf it." @XGame_360 wrote, "KFC Gaming really understands us." 

Some players suggested that KFC should take matters into its own hands and make a better game. When user @therealoldyella wrote "make a kfc fps," the official KFC Gaming account replied, "We're listening." User @August39512656 got creative with some fresh-out-of-the-oven ideas for the console: "Have a weapon be a bucket that fires rockets/grenades, that look like fried chicken wings."


KFC's COD roast is not the first instance of the company getting satirical on social media, particularly when it comes to gaming. In November 2020, KFC fired a shot at Cyberpunk 2077 with a parody of the game's release delay, with the company instead taking another opportunity to hype up the its own console. Yes, you read that right: KFC Gaming also claims to have a console-slash-chicken warmer in the works, known as the KFConsole.

While some may view KFC getting into gaming as a marketing ploy (which it sure seems to be), the company has taken some surprisingly legitimate steps into the world of entertainment. Back in 2019, KFC released a free-to-play PC dating sim called I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin' Good Dating Simulator. On top of that, in December 2020, KFC released a parody short film for Lifetime, A Recipe for Seduction. The 15-minute short starred Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders. Fans ate it up, so much so that many are crossing their fingers for a sequel. Maybe a Recipe for Seduction video game isn't entirely out of the question?

Whether the news of KFC roasting COD leaves your mind racing, your stomach rumbling, or a little bit of both, all eyes are on KFC Gaming to see who gets burnt to a crisp next.
