The US military uses more than 100 million barrels of oil every year, making it one of the world’s largest consumers of petroleum. The military has also spent millions over the last decade or so transitioning some of its vehicles to electric power. This feels like an important detail to know before we get the news that a digital version of the GMC Hummer EV will soon be available as a playable vehicle in a military digital version, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 video games.
GMC said this week that the digital version of the Hummer EV will bring an estimated 1000 horsepower and 3.3 second zero to 60-mph time to Activision video games before the end of the year. Big EV will be available in Modern War II on October 28 and in war zone 2.0 sometime later this fall.
Another real-world vehicle has appeared in Call of Duty previous game. The Jeep Wrangler has made several appearances, for example, such as a digital version of the original Humvee. Jeep even makes a small amount Call of Duty–branded vehicles about a decade ago, including a Black Operation edition and Modern Warfare 3 Edition.

GM has a long history of building vehicles for the US military. Last year, GM Defense created a one-off concept vehicle based on the model but with a zero-emissions powertrain. The All-Electric Vehicle Concept is intended to demonstrate what is possible with military electric vehicles and what could one day replace combustion-powered ISVs for the US Army.
To complete the circle between GM, the US military, and GM Defense, David Albritton told the GM Authority in 2020 that the Hummer EV “could provide a great base platform for electric vehicles to be used in a military context.”
