I’ve always known that Activision spends a lot of time, money, and talent on keeping the fat tits of the Call of Duty franchise milkable. Like I knew it was a Leviathan, but this news is fucking insane. It turns out that every single studio the company owns works on the franchise. Every single one! Which totally sucks in its own way. But, it doubly sucks when you think of all the games these talented developers are pulled off of.
Bungie has gained the publishing rights for ‘Destiny’ and left Activision. This can only be a good fucking thing, right?
Bungie has split with Activision, and they’re taking the mofuckin’ rights to Destiny with them. I don’t hate Destiny, but it’s just never been compelling to me. That said, I’m still excited by this news. Let’s see what Bungie can come up with for the future of the franchise, when they’re not having to answer to Activision and its stockholders on the regular. Right? Maybe?
In what is becoming a yearly tradition, Activision has officially announced a Call of Duty title. After it’s been leaked to the public.
Call of Duty is doing what Battlefield did last year, folks. It’s eschewing the science-fiction, jet-pack madness for more traditional combat. Returning the series to its roots, if you will. I’m down! I’m down for it. I mean, fuck, I enjoyed the science-fiction interpretation, but I think we’re all ready to strip the series back down.
I’m excited for Destiny 2. The original was rocky out of the gate, but Bungie has more than found their footing since then. So a full, dedicated installment to learn all their lessons from developing the first? Nice.
I’m totally buying the Modern Warfare Remaster edition of Infinite Warfare. ‘Cause I love Call of Duty and I love(d) Modern Warfare. I don’t need a trailer to convince me to make this decision, but watching this certainly doesn’t make me regret it.
Well, the Demon Hunter shows no lack of raging fortitude, huh? I’ll be back for this WoW expansion, just like I’m back for all of them. (Though, I didn’t even play Warlords. I just uh, sort of bought it. But that counts on some level, right?)
I really need to play Diablo 3‘s expansion pack. Namely because I bought it, and never played it. Though also because I’ve heard that the third installment in the Diablo 3 franchise has actually become quite solid through expansion and patching. Can anyone around speak to that? Can anyone around here play it with me?
