It’s pretty much confirmed that the next Call of Duty game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and Activision now says that its subscription based Elite package will form an integral part of the game. Undoubtedly Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be heading to Wii U this Fall, so expect Activision to try to furiously promote its subscription based package to all Nintendo fans, in a desperate attempt to capitalize on the immensely popular franchise.

“All we’re really saying about it at this point is integration is the word of the day. It needs to be in the game. It needs to be tightly wrapped with game features. And that’s our focal point. We’ll be back at some point to talk about that game, and when we do, we’ll reveal a lot more. Long term, we’re making Elite and the game synonymous. If you want to play solo or single-player, you might never notice Elite. But the moment you dip your toe into multiplayer, you’re part of Elite. It’s just up to you whether you take full advantage of the features or not.”

– Activision producer Noah Heller

    • That is true but Unlike in the North Amerivan Videogame Crash of ’83 when some can play in the PC before Nintendo Fix the thing for console… here would be different, because the problem are not the Console Producers but the Develover, In fact we need a crash in reverse, so Big than put a brake in the yearly FPS(Goldeneye and perfect dark were Five years of Differnece both, both Smash were Plataform Only) and show Third Parties than their new practices will kill them…

      And them Maybe Nintendo and Sony(Microsoft is so Reliant In Third Party Except for Kinect and some other games) will make new game ways(increase the gender diverty, free service and only the apps have the value,etc).

      But Again… We need to see how this Evolve

  1. I sure hope they won’t seriously limit or exclude people in/from multiplayer if they don’t have CoDE. Something like that would seriously effect sales I believe (or at least it should,) especially Xbox gamers who would have to pay for XBL and CoDE.

    • I have MW3 and I don’t have the Elite sub.

      You just have to wait longer to get the DLC’s if you don’t have Elite membership. It’s usually about a months you have to wait after the Elite got it.

      But really, thats what made MW3 annoying.

  2. SCREW YOU ACTIVISION!

    YOU RUINED MW3 BY STICKING THE SUBS IN! WE ALREADY PAY FOR YOUR DLCS!

    No really, thats what made MW3 very annoying. Activision… don’t put this in Black Ops 2 other wise I will hate you.

    • Yeah I’ll always hate saying it, but Wii U does need CoD. It would be better for Wii U controls, you’d actually need to pay attention instead of mindless button presses. But the unfortunate truth is no matter how much hate the games get, at least 1 will be released EVERY YEAR and makes more than the last (I’ll never understand how that works.) Maybe it’s release for Wii U will showcase how powerful the system is.

  5. Call of Duty is just too bittersweet:
    Its a popular *pick up and play* game that is just esy to use. Pracatacally everyone has played them, and you can a majority of people and freinds to play. and zombies

    The down side: DLC, its just stupid to pay for extra content that shouldv been in the game in the first place. The lack of creativity, cuz i honeslty think MW3 is the same as MW2, no engine change, no formuleic change, just a few additions and minor HUD changes. I honeslty think Treyarc, activision and Infinityward are just 3 greedy people that really dont rely on consistancy, cohearance or regard to wat the gamer wants. They know wat they *need….wich is a shooter of course…but thats not bad……unless your next game is almost identical to the last one you made. Black Ops tried to make it original witht he COD points, but even that was a gimic.

    Nintendo doesnt need FpS, they already been there and done that with N64. It wants a fresh take on games, not mindless shooting, yelling and killing. Keyterm: MINDLESS, when have you ever played a MINDLESS Nintendo game….Zelda? Mario? Metroid? almost everything in nintendo requires creativity, thinking and just sheer complexity. Even the FPS Metroid had consistency

    Call of duty on the WiiU is just mixing oil with water, nintendo doesnt need call of duty, but they can have it. But they really dont care. Nintendo is too good for them

    • I’ll bet Nintendo can come up with something to top them all- maybe it won’t sell as well because it’s not released on so many systems, but they could make an exclusive with creative weaponry like Prime or even Conduit. I honestly hope one of the new projects they’re working on can show how FPS can actually be creative.
