The Operator is named Morte, and he is played by the Italian rapper Fabio Rovazzi. You can buy the character from the in-game store starting on September 8. Rovazzi documented his experience becoming the character in a YouTube video that you can watch below.
In a press release, Activision said Rovazzi is a “passionate gamer” and a fan of Call of Duty specifically. The character Morte is a former Italian special ops soldier who now has a Old West look that is meant to reflect Rovazzi’s love of Italian-Western films.
