Default BO2 May infringe on Infinity Wards Call of Duty contract

Last week it was revealed that Activision might have another court case on their hands as Infinity Ward has the contract to create Call of Duty games set in the present day or near future. With Black Ops 2 being set in 2025 there could be an issue, but no doubt Activision has deep enough pockets to get them out of trouble. Either that or Activision has leaked the story to create a bit of controversy to keep BO2 in the news and drive sales.

Anyway here is the full story.

Def a PR stunt. We all know IW and Trey leapfrog eachother in releases so how could BOII infringe on their income?

Gotta give it to them for trying. I just wonder what the Activision PR Committee have tabled next on Rumour Round? I hope they dont drag this one out while trying to develop a more interesting one.

EDIT: Side note: Why does "PR" get inderlined and called Page Ranking, Mr Mods? Just a lil query is all. Have i found some evil underlying code that you guys use to track our every move :_)

Indeed. Though BOPs at end of story was hardly that far behind the MW series for years either.

Lets be honest, small arms haven't changed particularly in the last 50 years.



I reckon they're highly optimistic about the scale of change in 13 bloomin' years... very likely the game looks very silly when that year rolls around.

I think it best if the world changes its 'year stamp' eg.

"Year '2025 A.D'". to become

"Year 'C.O.D. 22'".

Likely in years to come our kids will ask. "What COD year was it that the twin towers went down" , or "COD 37, The year civies started to populate Mars"

"Where were you during 'COD 64'?.
