Activision “Already Charging” for Call of Duty

October 26, 2010, By Christian Davis

Remember several months back where Activison CEO, Bobby Kotick, stated that he would charge a fee to play Call of Duty online? You can stop holding your breath because it’s not going to happen in that way. Apparently, Activision has already been charging us and we just never knew it.

Ubisoft’s CEO, Yves Guillemot, said the statement above and says that they’ve charged us through their “drip-feed” of DLC. Guillemot says that Call of Duty is already charging customers for it’s online service, as Activision are already launching Downloadable Content regularly.

Is Yves suggesting that any sort of DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is going to be free? Essentially, if Ubisoft did charge for their Downloadable Content on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed title, he could be seen as a hypocrite.

At the same time, you could also take into consideration the price of Modern Warfare 2’s latest map pack. It was set at 15 dollars to purchase, which upset many gamers. More often then not, map packs are no more then 10 dollars. Maybe the added 5 dollars was their way of charging us for playing.

That’s something to ponder.
