This morning, a rumor surfaced claiming that Infinity Ward were in talks with Activision concerning the rights to the Call of Duty franchise — IW wanted it back. Turns out later, Activision fired off e-mails and “straightened out” the situation stating that the rumor was just nothing more than a fabrication.
Who to believe?
Look at it. The March sales numbers for Call of Duty 4. Still going strong. I wouldn’t be surprised if Infinity Ward wanted to hold off on Call of Duty 5 and continue to support Call of Duty 4. It makes sense to build on what everyone else loves. I mean, they did sell 1 million map packs for $10 a pop in 9 days. God damn, you people.
I’d like to see Infinity Ward take back the Call of Duty name.
