COD != FISH (lots of news about COD, not fish)

News Activision FPS Playstation 3 Xbox 360


Ok, lots of Call of Duty news now. All from the here.

Activision has announced that Infinity Ward heads Jason West and Vince Zampella are no longer with the studio. Activision Publishing chief technology officer Steve Pearce and head of production Steve Ackrich will head up the development house on “an interim basis.” Furthermore, Call of Duty-related business will now be overseen by Philip Earl (now ex-head of Activision’s Asia-Pacific region). There is no info as to why Jason West and Vince Zampella are no longer with the studio but I’m sure we will find out soon.

The Call of Duty franchise is trying to get to Asia! Any asians reading this? You might be getting the franchise over there soon.

Treyarch plans to release the next Call of Duty game this fall.

Infinity ward is developing the first 2 map packs for Modern Warfare 2 to be released in 2010.

Finally, Activision plans to expand the Call of Duty franchise to more genres and geographies

Ok that is all. You may continue playing your games.

Hey did anyone get the programming reference in the title? 😉


  1. Lol at TreyArch attempts… all they are going to do is change a lil code, maybe reskin a few things… ACTIVISION = Epic Fail despite their stock staying level, I’m assuming its intercompany trading trying to keep the inflated value up from dropping 😉

    Either way you look at it ,these are big wigs in the game industry, Activision could have had a lot better tactics in this situation, not just a slap in the face to the guys who made a best selling game and made happy gamers everywhere.

    and now on to my error proned BF2, keep up the hard work on fixing things please DICE!!!

  2. Activion and Ubisoft can walk together these days. I liked both devs in the past, but their image these days are getting worse and worse.

  3. I have seen non-gamers on twitter thinking people are talking about fish a couple times.

    Looks like infinity ward is out, they are putting some company called Sledgehammer (something like that) in IW’s place.

    MW2 was far from perfect, but I feel impending doom for the series, especially with Activision thinking they can ask for subscriptions to play CoD.

  4. call of duty in general is struggling for air right now i don’t think it will survive
