For the first time ever, an official Formula 1 circuit will feature on popular video game Call of Duty, with the newest edition Modern Warfare II set to include the Marina Bay Circuit.

The Marina Bay Circuit is the host of the incredibly demanding Singapore Grand Prix, which has returned to the calendar this season following the race being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The race first featured on the calendar in 2008 and will now be playable on the newest edition of Call of Duty.

Modern Warfare II has a release date of October 28; however, the beta which will include the Marina Bay Circuit will be available from early September.
