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.

Activision: It only does milking a franchise

Seriously though, this is good news for people who still eat up anything CoD.

I really think MW3 will really have to up its game, with the likes of Medal of Honour and other FPS's breathing down its neck, MW3 will have to do more than just the same old multi player gameplay and tacked-on single player campaign

The only CoD game I will be buying is MW3 and that will just be for the single player. (if respawn gets the rights that will be a different story) I just don't want to give Activision money, they treat their employees like garbage and don't deserve it. Medal of Honor looks like it will be a good game. MW2 is still a lot of fun though, I just need a break from it.

@Booze925
Oh for god's sake, calm down. Godfrobid a very select group of individuals have a differing opinion about the Call of Duty series. I'm sorry but that series is getting tried and tired. How you can sit and play an online game where the same actions and events occur over and over and over and you are subject to some of the cheesiest perks to ever "grace," the series, is beyond me. My real question is this: Why are die hard fans of the Call of Duty franchise so borderline hostile towards the very very small minority of folks who dislike the series.... YOU ARE IN THE MAJORITY, just enjoy the game. If you come looking and expecting a few people to dislike the series and then act so up in arms over it when they act like you expected, I just don't get that. Go play the game with the other 8-18 year old kids cursing and yelling every time they don't get their way, sounds like a lot of fun to me, certainly more so than crying over a few people disagreeing with your CoD opinion. I on the other hand, am very psyched to see what Black Ops turns out like, I think the Vietnam theme looks very interesting.
Peace.

COULD NOT HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF ed_winchester!

They just love milking any DAMN FRANCHISE that goes insanely big! Remember Guitar Hero...after what happened with Guitar Hero II?

The sh**iest Guitar Heroes on the face of the planet came out:

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (69)
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (70)
Guitar Hero Smash Hits (71)
Guitar Hero: Van Halen (64)
Guitar Hero On Tour (71)
Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades (72)
Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits (70)

I placed the Metacritic score by each of them...just look at how bad they are compared to the originals: Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero II. When I said "shi**iest" I meant...compared to the great beginning. Metallica, World Tour, and 5 are good but again not AS GREAT as the originals were.

I definitely can say that this whole "WARFARE" franchise will see the same results.

But then again...I can't blame Activision. Although they may definitely deliver less quality...they just want their damn paychecks by putting the same formula, 2-3 new weapons, a different map which takes a day to make, and a story based off of War FANFIC sites.

My next prediction:

Michael Pachter coming out of his shell noting that: "Warfare franchise won't do well - quality wise" - and that dumb picture of him showing up.

yeah guys calm down. I enjoy the CoD series. CoD had zombie mode and I loved that. The mp mode might seem repetitive to many but its still really fun and well done in MWF2. It's definitely much smoother than WaW. Don't you all remember the days when we would all play Counterstrike for hours and hours? Now THAT was repetitive, but still super enjoyable. I'm excited to hear that there are and will be future installments because this is a good series even though its by Activision.

could be url squatters. folks go out and register domains that they know people will want and sit on them until they can extort enough money out of someone who wants it bad enough. this kind of wide array of urls makes my gut think its squatters, not activision

world it really wouldn't be that hard as long as you have the money to do it. You have to pay for it, but in the end if someone did want it bad enough you could make some money, altho it would be difficult to predict what they would want.

Unless of course somebody goes and grabs modernwarfare4 that might just do it.

Lightshow,
Could be a squatter picking up one of them, but I've read 3 different articles on separate sites yesterday that actually show anti-vision as being the new holders of those most of these domain names, especially the "futures" & the spacewarfare" one's.

Plus one of them had said that anti-vision pulled "Raven" off the game that they were doing, just to help Infinity Ward craft the futuristic spacewarfare COD.

The biggest draw of the CoD franchise is their fantastic online component. Why is the online component so appealing? Level design. There are other reasons of course, but level design is of the utmost importance. IW had the best level designers allowing for some truly "cheeky" gameplay.

Activision can create a zillion CoD games if that's what they want to do, but without those genius level designers at IW, they'll never appeal to the huge MW online crowds.

Sunday, May 16, 2010 @ 3:14:37 AM

I actually agree to liking the level design, what was bad for me and this was after months of addiction was the perks and killstreaks. I admit when I got chopper gunner I knew where they would spawn and I would spam R1 and get easy kills. However in reality it's a bit much. I've been playing COD 4 again recently and I never feel that my killstreaks are taking too much of a competitive edge away from the overall game. I have high hopes for Black Ops because Treyarch has gone on to say they think certain aspects of MW2 are a bit much(commando, and overly powerful killstreaks were mentioned.)I disagree without IW CoD won't sell I feel it will be on a downward cycle but CoD sells itself nowadays, it has a built in fanbase of kids that don't realize they're getting the same product over and over, re-skinned and buggy.

does anyone esle think these are plys either from activision or some other people who are just registering these domains to stir up the rumour mill on the internet?

as for cod, i think its gonna get some serious competition. KZ3 soounds promising (if a bit brown and grey) and Medal of Honour seems to be shaping up to a good modern warfare title with an actualy emphasis on the story.

While I agree KZ2 was a little lacking in color, I feel it's one of a few games that it justifiable considering well they're on a pollution ravaged planet torn apart by war. If they were rocking neon t-shirts and climbing lush jungle trees it would make absolutely no sense in context.

@World or they helgans could be found on another planet because they could then scale it up, and make this huge colourful pandora like environment.

i've just realised how cool that would be.

@Mavfan, oh i dont deny it makes sense, and i wouldn't complain if the thrid was brown, but the above idea would make the game possibly more epic. i mean not really colourful, but dark shades of green and blue or whatever.

Wow, if I want future warfare, I got Killzone 2, Halo 3 and the upcoming Halo: Reach to cover me for that. Their multiplayers are varied and different, which I like, not the same ol' same ol' "whoever presses R1/RB first wins!" gameplay, where reflexes are end all be all.

=/

And as for space warfare, I got Mass Effect 1 and 2 ^.^, because it actually has a story XD

I hate online shooters where you can empty your clip into someone's face, but they knife you once and so you die and they are fine.

Who here thinks a knife to the face does more damage than several gunshot wounds to the face?

well if 4 cods are in development right now, just wait till next year. Most of those new domains are probably plans for next year when activision has every one of their studios working on a warfare game. Here's the new add
