Rumor – Call of Duty Online announcement coming soon

Friday, 6th May 2011 20:20 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

We’ve heard there is a Call of Duty announcement planned for this evening. We’ve heard it’s happening at a press event in New York. RPS has heard something as well

According to the site’s sources, Activision is preparing to make a major announcement regarding Call Of Duty Online at the event we heard about this evening.

It is to be the “online solution” Activision has been chatting about since its last financial call to investors, and it might involve the new online content from Beachhead Studios mentioned by the firm during the call as well.

Supposedly, according to RPS’s sources, it could be a Acti’s bid to go up against EA’s Battlefield Play4Free.

We’ve got our ears to the ground. If anything comes out we will let you know.

    But I thought Beachhead’s thingy was simply a platform for Call of Duty not a game.

    Free to play shit?

    Crap Of Dutey? Fantastic…

    More i want to see is about the price. If it’s going to be 15 bucks a month. PC comunity will never pay for it. Most importantly, they will just copy it and use F2P servers.

    If it’s going to the same boat as Battlefield P4F, game must be super special to excite people.
    Battlefield Play4Free have an ok p2p system, but game overall lack of support and fixes + that “Other” team didn’t produced decent magic of what Battlefield 2 was.

    to make people excited there must be a similar quality of Black Ops at least and it’s not hard to do, because with that Triceratops era engine you don’t need a lot of work.

    im surprised to see this if true tbh

    if it is it wont get proper support from acti imo. They may see it as a way of cannibalising their own sales.

    Sooo…..MW3 announcement tonite aswell then? :)

    EDIT: wait a minute!? Didn’t activision confirm before they were making a CoD F2P for the asian market?

    So they will have an online only game with microtransactions or pay to play. And MW3 (or whatever COD game is out this year). Both, more than likely, out this year. I can’t see CoD going much further. They’ve milked it almost dry at this point. If Activision would let the devs spend 2-3 years on the game, it would be better.

    Modern Warfare 3 tonight? Oh baby, i want to see that so much :D

    I want to see what engine they use.. 99% for sure it’s the same proprietary modified Id TECH 3 :D that engine can’t even produce 720p except for upscale.
    but who cares, fratboys will be all over Call Of repetition.

    @#10

    the engine manages to do 1080p on my PC :/

    @11, any PC can do it, you can upscale it even with 2560×1600 if your Monitor supports it.

    but thats just upscaling. Id Tech 3 core engine in reality can’t produce REAL 720p at least. Thats why we see low res textures, shitty depth of field and crappy shadows in Call Of duty games.

    @12 I know I may get your fury after saying this but I didn’t think the graphics of Modern Warfare 2 were bad, the other game’s graphics were but not MW2′s.

    @13, you won’t get my fury, but i think you are trolling or you just liked the design, because Modern Warfare 2 graphics were AVERAGE at best.
    Not even graphics, but capabilities were limited. You could not even shoot the fence. Again, engine problems.

    Even Killzone 3 engine was capable of small destructibility (sometimes).

    @13 I’m not trolling I just think that the maps complimented the engine and I agree there should have been some form of destruction in the game.

    call of duty 4s graphics were amazing in 2007! i just hope ininit ward do not make this call of duty, my reason is because they are really shit at balancing guns treyarchs black ops is completely balanced

    @16 Yet Infinity Ward made the game with the ‘amazing graphics’, Infinity Ward were the ones who made the CoD gameplay how it is today, Treyarch did nothing. Your logic is flawed.
