Call of Duty MMO
There has been much speculation about whether Activision and Infinity Ward will take Modern Warfare 2 into a monthly subscription. Now though, it is believed that the monthly subscription will not be for the ability to play Modern Warfare 2 online, but to bring add-ons to the game. When GameSpot readers were asked if they would pay extra to play MW2 online, 93% said No with just 7% saying they would. The idea of a MW2 MMO was first brought to the surface when Activision's Bobby Morgan said at the Morgan Stanley Technical Conference:
"When you think about other properties that we own and control, like Call of Duty, and what would be the natural evolution of a property like Call of Duty into a massilvelymultiplayer environment, 'how do you monetize that?"
The new monthly subscription would be run on the same systems as World of Warcraft and will see you purchasing new game modes, player created maps, new player costumes and greater stat-tracking. A Call of Duty MMO would bring so much more to the game, but is it to much to soon and more importantly for fans, the price. If Activision screw-up, it will be games like Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising which is going to take the top prize of best Modern shooter.
