Activision: Call of Duty Players "Clamouring" For MMO
Activision boss Bobby Kotick has told The Wall Street Journal that he would love to see an MMO version of Call of Duty, and that such a project would be just what fans of the FPS series would want to subscribe to.

The candid comment came in response to the question, "if you could snap your fingers, and instantly make one change in your company what would it be?" Kotick said;

"I would have Call of Duty be an online subscription service tomorrow. When you think about what the audience's interests are and how you could really satisfy bigger audiences with more inspired, creative opportunities, I would love to see us have an online Call of Duty world. I think our players would just have so much of a more compelling experience.

"I think our audiences are clamouring for it. If you look at what they're playing on Xbox Live today, we've had 1.7bn hours of multiplayer play on Live. I think we could do a lot more to really satisfy the interests of the customers. I think we could create so many things, and make the game even more fun to play. We haven't really had a chance to do that yet."

I'd happily subscribe for a modern version of Planetside. If it was better than MW2, though. Imagine something like COD4, but with Planetside's persistent world and 100 vs. 100 battles.

I'm not sure whether it's pure arrogance or naivety, either way, no-one wants to pay monthly for a game if they don't have to :/

@Bukkow Naivety & ignorance? Surely nobody ever wants to pay for anything if they don't have to! There is an ignorant comment on this page but it wasn't Mr Koticks
