Acti-Blizz Day – Online CoD4 play to be further “monetized”

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 16 September 2008 06:59 GMT

Speaking during Activision Blizzard’s Analyst Day last night, company CEO Mike Griffith said that Call of Duty 4’s online play can be milked further in terms of cash. We reckon he may have a point.

“We … see strong opportunities to monetize online gameplay,” said the exec. “The average Call of Duty player has spent nearly five full 24-hour days of their lives online since purchasing the game.

“Over time, we’ll qualify more opportunities to increase the monetization of these activities.”
