Nintendo Universe writes: Following the announcement that they are to scrap both their Guitar Hero and True Crime franchises, CEO and President of Activision, Bobby Kotick has unveiled a new studio, Beachhead.
So how many studios are working on CoD? -Infinity Ward -Treyarch -Sledgehammer -Beachhead ...Really?
lets not forget about cancelling Guitar hero or something (didnt focus to much on that news because i dont care about CoD or activison. so correct me if im wrong)
Yep, they're stopping the GH franchise to focus on CoD. Not that I'm sad that GH is gone, cause that franchise was gettin the hell milked out of it too.
Really? Maybe they figured they couldn't compete with Rock Band? I can only imagine more high-priced DLC. Thing is, I wouldn't mind new DLC, but COD is so expensive as is and the annual releases just kill it for some people. I will wait and see what they offer, but it's probably going to be too expensive and there is way too much money I have to spend this year. COD has way too much competition this year but the thing is that there is such a large audience that just plays COD who will support this. I'm willing to bet that high price + the fraction of COD-only players that buys this will equal sales equivalent to most other profits other devs make.
LOL a studio whose sole purpose is to milk more out of CoD?
My guess is Guitar Hero just couldnt compete with rockband, And now that Rockband has Pro Guitar mode, it's just incredible.
OMFG when will it stop??? WTF????
Whole studios fr the purposes of DLC? Their games are practically DLC already!
Isn't Raven Software part of the COD studios now too?
- I'm pretty sure they are. I think they create a lot of the DLC for Call Of Duty.
Hey, remember when they made games like Soldier of Fortune? So... can they, like... make more like that?
HAHA, I remember the first time i've ever seen Soldier of Fortune, it was SOF2 at my friends house, When he opened fire on sombody and I saw the Gore, I was blown away! Is there any other game out there that gory? Makes me want to download that game again and blow holes in peoples stomachs, litterly..
Wooooo OMG this is amazing bob knows exactley what we want and knows how to get it we want so much COD his closing down studios to give us no COD studio's woooo shame i dont want another cod game =/ i want quality not quantity i want bang for buck and i want bobby out ...if only >:D
You want bobby no d!(k out, tell everyone you know how shit cod is show them other fps, they will in turn do the same. B4 u know cod will be dead, activision will sack the sack of $h!t n0d!(k. A friend only just got into killzone 2 mp and says its the best and finally realised how shit cod was
Aww, i really wanted to play that True Crime Game it looked awsome, i dont really care about the Guitar Hero since i play Rockband
Also raven software
well its all they have left
it's the most profitable in the industry at the moment!
You forgot Raven Software
I have a feeling they're putting a lot of their eggs in a single basket.
I like milk with my cereals.
Too bad that milk is so expensive
- Don't worry, you can get a bowl for your milked dry cereal for only $15 as a DLC! It's smashed to pieces, but they'll "fix it later".
And the cereal is soggy.
they are serving you the milk from freaking 2007!
Even watered down, old, reused milk?
It looks like a pillow now, that all the blue/green fuzz has grown beyond control; its hard to know what it is, but its a fluffy hunk of cheese..
Kotick smells like Broccoli and poop.
LMAO Comment of the year
http://objection.mrdictiona... seriously though, Activision has gone too far this time, I was looking forward to TC:Hong Kong
HAHAHA!! Defo comment of the year!!!
OMG dude! you smelled him? WTF is wrong with you?
...Activision is clearly milking the franchise to death, and the more it milks it the faster it will die. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like COD, I just don’t like playing a new one every 6 months that’s exactly like the one before it but just different enough to put in a new box. Hopefully, it won’t quite go extinct and will just turn into a once every 2 year franchise.
True. It'll end up going down the same path that GH went down. Keep on Activision, you're killing your own franchise. I can't wait for the CoD games to sink and burn.
And here comes the subscription based CoD.....
Now with four studios working on one franchise they should be able to make a flawless game (I hope).
1. it's 5 studios including Raven 2. flawless game? wake up dude!
Just looking at his face makes me angry
I second this.
activision should just change its name to call of duty. seriously, if bungie is doing a cod anything i will never click or buy anything from acti again... thats just crazy.. all those studios on one game!
Soon Activision will be rebranded as CODVision or Actiduty, shit man the COD franchise is starting to remind me of the Haloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm street films, what number are we on now? To make things worse I will end up buying them (used copies) just to continue the collection
Active Duty sounds about right.
MilkMan is suiting the better!
Yay, hopefully they fuck this one up too so that they stop releasing copy pasted work every year. It's quite annoying that they're making lots of money on someone's work while developers all over are trying to be innovative and releasing fresh games. Sorry Vince and Zampella, I hate you guys because you developed one of the greatest games, Modern Warfare, and lost your rights to your work. Now developers everywhere are suffering sales because a bunch of idiots like to play games that are copy and pasted from your original work. Good luck at Respawn. Hopefully you make a COD killer like Harmonix made a Guitar Hero killer over at EA.
MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A whole fucking studio for making overpriced map packs?
LMFAO. I used to make jokes about this happening. I'm gonna laugh so hard when COD flops this year due to BF3 and see Activision go down the drain.
In other news... Activision officially Changes their name CallofVision Blizzard Run Blizzard run!
sounds to me like a panic move after BFBC3's reavel and impressions of amazement .
Link? Or do you mean Battlefield 3? Different franchises..
you know what happens when you milk stuff too far... ...sore nipples thats what happens
This pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for PC mod tools.
mind as well change the activision company name too, to just Call of Duty.
You don't like Call of Duty? Don't buy it. What is the points of going on and on about how terrible it is? Why not just ignore it?
Because Activision are putting so much money and effort into CoD when they could be making other games... Its just annoying.
You're the only person writing the right things to do! I usually just read most of these pathetic comments that have no answers on what to do but your answer made me want to leave comment of agreement, kudos to YOU! and +1bubble!
The name perfectly fits their mentality.
4 studios for one game? a game that comes out with game breaking bugs that still exists? on a yearly basis no less? hopefully the masses get wise to acti's milking and move on
Problem, Gamers? http://i.cubeupload.com/AA2...
Well I guess they are gonna start charging gamers $9.99 a month to play Call of Duty with studios releasing DLC every 4 to 6 months for $15 plus $60 games every year. If they pump up the graphics and expand the games to something more innovative than a frag fest inside a confined area then they may have something. I doubt it. as this whole idea was spawned from GREED. This is gonna hurt Activision's pockets in the long run.
Greed really can make a man go crazy from power. Cough...Bobby Kotick...Cough...Activision!!! ! (I'm glad other developers aren't following this approach to gaming.)
I just want to strangle Kotick
