Numerous Call Of Duty Domains Found, Details Lacking
I think my first reaction to this piece of news was, "Oh, now what are they doing?!"
We know Activision has Treyarch working on Call of Duty: Black Ops and we know the Sledgehammer studio is also working on a CoD iteration; one many are assuming will be a third-person shooter. But clearly, Activision wants to expand the popular franchise even further: the publisher may be responsible for registering a number of new domains on the web, including "callofdutyfuturewarfare.com," "callofdutyfuturewarfare2.com," and "callofdutyfuturewarfare3.com." On top of which, domains with just the "warfare" part have popped up all over the place; there's "spacewarfare2.com," "spacewarfare3.com," "secretwarfare2.com," "secretwarfare3.com," "advancedwarfare2.com," and "advancedwarfare3.com." The SecretWarfare one is a preexisting domain, registered to a Norway address unconnected with Activision, but the SpaceWarfare and FutureWarfare ones remain unattached. Superannuation found all these domains but we have to bear in mind that they don't necessarily mean anything (yet). However, we do know there are at least four CoD titles in development, and as we only know about two of 'em...well, three if you count Modern Warfare 3, which hasn't been officially revealed. Of course, it probably will be...
Raven Software may also be working on a Call of Duty but again, that can't be confirmed at this time. All we really know is that the name "Call of Duty" will be unavoidable in the years to come.
