Christopher Judge’s Joke at The Game Awards Sparks Controversy: Call of Duty Community Slams Actor for Ill-Timed Remark

During The Game Awards, Christopher Judge, the esteemed voice actor behind God of War’s Kratos, made a joke that was met with controversy. Last year, Judge graced the biggest stage in gaming and delivered an eight-minute speech. This time around, he joked that his speech would be “longer than this year’s Call of Duty campaign.”

Backlash from the Call of Duty Community

Shortly after, former and current Call of Duty developers took to social media to respond to Judge’s comment. Their criticisms were unified, with many expressing disappointment and frustration over the joke:
