It seems that Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision, is out to upset the gaming populous again as seen in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal. When asked what Kotick would change in his company, he replied that he would like to create a pay service for the Call of Duty series.
Kotick stated, "I would have Call of Duty be an online subscription service tomorrow. When you think about what the audience's interests are and how you could really satisfy bigger audiences with more inspired, creative opportunities, I would love to see us have an online Call of Duty world. I think our players would just have so much of a more compelling experience."
As a statement, of course making more money is a good thing. It's just that making people pay more money for something without any idea of what people are paying for is a little ridiculous. When asked if this service was actually coming he replied, "Hopefully".
Kotick also went on to explain that people are "clamouring" to pay him since there are so many people who play Call of Duty online every week. It seems that Kotick is just trying to make everyone angry at this point. Let's hope another Activision overkill is not on its way any time soon.
