Activision registers slew of China-related domain names like BlackOpsChina.com

Activision went on a domain buying spree this week and registered several China-related domain names in what is likely related to the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The 2025 section of Black Ops II features a storyline based on a new cold war that has broken out between the United States and China. On June 25, 2012, Activision added more than a dozen names to its portfolio like BlackOpsChina.com, CallofDutyChina.com and ModernWarfareChina.com. Among the registrations were also the English spelling of Chinese phrases like AnHeiXingDong.com, HeiseXingDong.com, JueShenGsHike.com, and XianDaizHanZheng.com.
