Activision Buys BlackOps2.com

It may not be long before BlackOps2.com takes you to something other than a “server not found” page, because Activision has apparently purchased the domain by proxy. While this doesn’t confirm we’ll see a sequel to the biggest wad of cash in Bobby Kotick‘s pocket, at this point, Activision would surprise us all if it didn’t make a sequel to the record-breaking game.

Unless Kotick’s heart grows three sizes, I doubt we’ll be spared another derivative sequel that is closer to an expansion pack than a new game. But I also doubt that Black Ops 2 would fail to make Activision billions of dollars, because people apparently love throwing money away.

I really hate the COD model of release a new game every year. I have played them all but only bought the modern ones. The others just seemed to miss something on the multiplayer side. They need to just have a game out for 2 years, then launch a new one. They are going to string themselves up and eventually people will stop what they are currently doing and not buy ever COD that comes out. I know I have.

For every one person that quits buying or playing COD, I bet there are a dozen or more new kids(GameFront needs to confirm exact stats) just getting started on this console series, that are still eager and willing to continue to use their/parents money to keep Kotick in enough gold and $100 bills to wipe his greedy fat ass on.

I just wish they’d have the same kind of robust, lengthy single-player campaigns that the earlier versions had, and not make the single-player campaign a kind of elaborate training module for the multiplayer game.

Come to think of it, any of these companies or series that stopped whoring themselves out on the altar of the -goddess of multiplayer would be a welcome relief.

…I know: dream on, right?!?

What’s the allure of COD anyway? I mean, why do people like it so much more than other modern war FPS games?

To respond to dnkkng79. Having played the MW series and Black ops. (.92 KDR, 2nd prestige, 8 properks on Black OPS/ .64 KDR, level 22, 1 properk MW3, So I’m an avg. player that’s put a good amount of time into the games.). I find that COD Black ops to be the most balanced. The maps are layed out nice and aren’t cluttered. Unlike the MW3 maps, which are cluttered w/so much back ground junk that it’s difficult to see your targets. MW3 maps are so convoluted w/hallways, alleyways, rooms, balcony’s and elevated shooting positions that it’s impossible to move any distance w/o getting blind sided/sniped by someone. With MW1+2 which had much better layouts but suffered from unbalanced game play & MODing, I have found COD to be one of the best FPS shooter games out there. Even though a lot of people have given it a bad rap…most people I know still prefer black ops over MW3 for those reasons. Also just to throw it out there, In my opinion, one of the best 3rd person shooters is Space Marine…it got little attention, but it totally smokes gears of war in terms of gameplay and teamwork. Horde mode is just an adrenaline rush in Space Marine. Let’s face it when your ranking up 80, 90, 100+ kills a round per player that’s a horde or WHAAGH!! for warhammer fans out there.
