Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade ?

Five months before the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, a small team of developers began work on a top-secret, third-person Call of Duty spin-off.

Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade

Set in Italy during World War II, Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade would feature squad-based mechanics, exploration, and a grim story about a team of skillfully trained killing machines.

Early on, the project had everything going for it: top talent, the publisher's financial support, and the blessing of original Call of Duty developer, Infinity Ward. In March 2008, nine months into development, CoD: Devil's Brigade was unceremoniously canceled.

One billion dollar PROFIT for Activision Blizzard...

Game Industry News

by Vrandas

Activision Blizzard made $1 billion profit in 2011, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 as their top-selling game. And for the first time the company also grabbed an extra 75 million dollar up front by selling Call of Duty: Elite Premium subscriptions.

No shocker here: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the best-selling game of 2011. Today, Activision Blizzard reported its fiscal 2011 earnings report, and the success of the first-person shooter franchise helped propel the company to record profits of $1.08 billion on revenues of $4.76 billion.

Activision Blizzard did not reveal exact sales numbers for Modern Warfare 3, but it did tout the game's social platform, Call of Duty Elite. As of January 31, the service now has 7 million registered users, with more than 1.5 million of those gamers signing up for the $50 premium tier.

A "new" Call of Duty confirmed for 2012 and Elite 2.0 incoming...

Unsurprisingly, the company confirmed that a new installment in the Call of Duty franchise will be released in 2012. The company also said that it is working on Elite 2.0, with details coming in the next few months.


 

Must we really make a list why this company doesn't deserve any profit ? 

Penny-pinching Activision knows how to please Wall Street but again failed to improve their Customer experience.

OPINION: Call of Duty is getting boring and needs to change ?

Great editorial about the future of the Call of Duty franchise by Mitch Dyer, an Associate Editor for IGN.

Call of Duty is Boring and Needs to Change

It's time to reboot the franchise that needs it most...

The Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare campaign was explosive, memorable, and remarkably fast-paced. Its online multiplayer achieved a refreshing newness typically reserved for Halo sequels. Modern Warfare transformed what we expected from first-person shooters, and in turn spawned one of the most successful entertainment properties in history.

This year marks the fifth anniversary of Call of Duty 4, a game whose foundation has remained largely unchanged in its four annual follow-ups and spinoffs. With rumors of Black Ops 2 swelling, Call of Duty's assaulting frequency is becoming difficult to stomach. The brand is a symptom of mutual complacency. Players systematically trade cash for another fix that does little to improve upon the last experience. Activision has become the industry equivalent of a crank dealer, and we've become junkies too strung out to do anything about our problem.

It's time for Call of Duty to change.    Read More...

Activision’s lawsuit vs Electronic Arts

Game Industry News

Activision’s Lawsuit Against Electronic Arts

A California Superior Court Judge has dismissed Electronic Arts’ interference claim. This means that Activision is still claiming that EA had sneaked appropriated Infinity Ward heads Vince Zampella and Jason West while it is still under contract with the publisher. 

The judge ruled that Activision has enough evidence against EA for the lawsuit to follow through and go on trial. The whole thing goes back to December 2010 when Activision filed an amended complaint against the two Infinity Ward heads for breach of contract. It said that EA severed the ties with the duo after propositions made since 2009.

According to Activision, West and Zampella were looking for other employment while still under contract and even flew via private jet to San Francisco to attend a barbecue held at John Riccietello’s home in August 2009. Riccietello is a EA CEO. Activision went on to allege that EA had plans to finance and even co-own a studio from West, Zampella and other employees from Infinity Ward.  This studio is one the publisher bought back in 2003.

Zampella and West filed a $36 million lawsuit against Activision. According to them, they were fired after they could have been paid the royalty payments for Modern Warfare 2. In June, a court judge ruled that West and Xampella had enough evidence to support their own case against Activision.
