So how many studios are working on CoD?

-Infinity Ward


DoomeDx2572d ago

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)

Shok2572d ago

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.

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?

Mikeyy2572d ago

My guess is Guitar Hero just couldnt compete with rockband, And now that Rockband has Pro Guitar mode, it's just incredible.

DaTruth2572d ago

Whole studios fr the purposes of DLC? Their games are practically DLC already!

Pandamobile2572d ago

Isn't Raven Software part of the COD studios now too?

--------2572d ago


I'm pretty sure they are. I think they create a lot of the DLC for Call Of Duty.

Zinc2572d ago (Edited 2572d ago )

Hey, remember when they made games like Soldier of Fortune? So... can they, like... make more like that?

Mikeyy2572d ago

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..

I like milk with my cereals.

LoaMcLoa2572d ago

Too bad that milk is so expensive

--------2572d ago (Edited 2572d ago )


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".

-Alpha2572d ago

And the cereal is soggy.

badz1492572d ago

they are serving you the milk from freaking 2007!

Vip3r2572d ago

Even watered down, old, reused milk?

FanboyPunisher2572d ago

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..

Mystickay862572d ago

Kotick smells like Broccoli and poop.

unknownhero11232572d ago

...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.

Shok2572d ago

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.

NoobJobz2572d ago

And here comes the subscription based CoD.....
