Call of Duty Online was announced as a free-to-play shooter exclusively for China, but now Activision’s CEO Eric Hirshberg said it could appear in other countries.
“I think we look at the Call of Duty Online game in China on its own merit as a great opportunity. That’s not to say that we won’t gain learnings about how it works in the micro-transaction-based format for the game. And there are a few other regions where that would be very relevant. So — but we certainly are not ready to announce any plans in that regard.”
Call of Duty Online could well follow the trail of Warface, Crytek’s F2P online FPS that was only announced for Russia and is now heading for Western markets.
