Duh. They not making any new ips. They cancelled true crime and they make a new call of duty game every year. You know what, i honestly think call of duty is gone to end up like guitar hero.

A company who opens a studio whose sole purpose is bring more DLC for CoD? Lol, I can't wait till the day people get tired of CoD.

I agree. They cancelled everything once they stopped getting a sizeable enough profit and now set up a studio to CoD dlc.

Time for something new. Or at least a break from some series. Show some originality for once.

Perjoss no, the title should just include both because without those two things they are nothing.

Well, they do have one big new IP on the way thanks to the Bungie publishing deal.

Bungie is in a much better position though, since they maintain autonomy and can't be gutted at Activision's whim.

wow, talk about a real case of putting all your eggs in one basket.

If they cancel Tony Hawk, Activision will pretty much have given EA a monopoly of both the skateboarding and music game genres.

LOL, funny you say that because the just did shut ol' Tony down too.

Good because they didn't know what they were doing. They kept messing with the formula and it just made the games crap. If I want realism, I'll buy Skate. I don't. I want to do a 900 into a volcano.
