Was this a surprise? Not really. This is, after all, Call of Duty and Guitar Hero; quite possible two of the most popular franchises in the current-gen. Well, it was still endearing to hear it from Activision themselves. We really don’t blame them for their money-milking ways.
Stealth kill your way inside to see what Activision had to say.
Chief Financial Officer of Activision, Thomas Tipple, had to say the following today:
In 2010, Activision publishing is expected to release a strong product line of innovative new titles. The diversified lineup will include, among others, titles based on the best-selling franchises in the company’s history, including Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, Tony Hawk, Shrek, and Spiderman, and a select few new intellectual properties such as Blur and Singularity, and a strong catalog based on our top sellers of 2009.”
You know, I have a feeling we’ll never see a “Call of Duty sequel would be counterproductive” headline. Ever.
