  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Does Away with Prestige Levels

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Does Away with Prestige Levels

    New progression system details revealed.

    A new blog focused on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare went up today that talks about the progression changes that were made for this year's release. First off, there are no more Prestige levels. Players will be able to earn 55 base levels and 100 additional Officer Ranks in each season of play.

    This news comes hot on the heels of word that Modern Warfare is doing away with paid map packs and loot boxes.

    Each weapon now also has 100 earnable camo patterns and an average of 50 attachments. You...

  • Call of Duty Ditches Season Pass, Paid Maps, and Loot Boxes

    Call of Duty Ditches Season Pass, Paid Maps, and Loot Boxes

    Activision adopting a new approach to monetization with Modern Warfare.

    When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare releases on October 25, a new era of monetization for the franchise will also begin. Activision plans to change how they approach things like the in-game economy and real-money microtransactions.

    An official blog post by the publisher highlights some of these planned changes. In short, the current plan is to do away with things like Season Passes and paid DLC map packs. It's also apparently doing away with paid loot boxes. This all sounds...

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Call of Duty: Mobile Surpasses 35 Million Downloads

    Not bad for a game released three days ago.

    Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Mobile has surpassed 35 million downloads across iOS and Android devices. According to the publisher, this game has been downloaded faster than any other first-person or third-person mobile action game. Of course, this factoid is based off of Activision's own internal estimates.

    Still, Call of Duty: Mobile was released on October 1, a mere three days ago. To have already hit 35 million downloads is still quite impressive. The game is a free download that...

  • Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Call of Duty Devs Won't Admit 'Modern Warfare' is Political

    Devs continue to be too cowardly to admit all games are political.

    In a couple of interviews conducted between Game Informer and developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare from Infinity Ward, we once again see that devs are just too afraid to admit that yes, their games are indeed political.

    Given that nearly every single game is political in some way, this seems like a rather perplexing stance to take. It's even more so when we're talking about a game that has "war" in the title, takes place in Syria, places you in the shoes of armed...

    Third time's the charm for Modern Warfare.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has just been officially announced and revealed for the third-ish time in the history of the world. There is a soft reboot of the Modern Warfare story for the Call of Duty franchise and should not be confused with the original release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in 2007 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered in 2016.

  • Call of Duty Shakeup - Call of Duty 2020 is Another Black Ops and Is Modern Warfare 4 Going Free-to-Play?

    Reports include talk of arguments between Sledgehammer and Raven.

    There are reported some massive changes happening behind the scenes of the Call of Duty franchise. According to a new report from Jason Schreier of Kotaku, Call of Duty 2020 is no longer being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven. It will instead be handled by Treyarch and it will be another entry in the Black Ops saga.

    This is the first major change in the development cycle of the Call of Duty franchise since 2012. Since then, the Call of Duty games have cycled between three lead...

  • Call of Duty 'Partners' Played the New Call of Duty and You Didn't

    Call of Duty 'Partners' Played the New Call of Duty and You Didn't


    A private event was held today wherein a number of college football players and various "Call of Duty Partners" got to play the new Call of Duty title. Charlie Intel gathered up a bunch of these social media postings from all these #CallofDutyPartners on Twitter and Instagram. You can see a few of the tweets embedded below.

    Really, that's kind of all there is to pull from today's event. Nobody has spilled any beans and I'm sure all of these people are under a strict non-disclosure agreement and/or an embargo of some sort. The social media...

  • Call of Duty: Mobile Announced

    Call of Duty: Mobile Announced


    Call of Duty: Mobile was announced today. Take your favorite maps, modes, and characters with you in the palm of your hand from across the various Call of Duty stories. The game is being developed by Tencent's studio, Timi. It's coming for both Android and iOS and will also include multiple game modes when released.

    It will be published by Activision, obviously. It will be a free-to-play title at release. I'm assuming that the game will contain in-app purchases. I would be absolutely shocked if it didn't.

    If you already know you're on...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered Rated in Europe


    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered was apparently just been given a rating by the Pan European Game Information board (PEGI). This specific rating is for the PlayStation 4. And yes, that is the actual title that is given.

    So far, nothing about this has been announced by Activision yet. Hell, nothing about this year's Call of Duty release has been revealed at all yet.

    I just can't help but feel incredibly indifferent about this if the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer isn't included alongside the campaign. Or if they do what...

    Bungie Ditches Activision, Acquires Rights to Destiny


    Moving forward, all future Destiny titles will be self-published by Bungie. I guess even Activision had to tap out after the latest Destiny 2 puzzle, eh?

    After eight years, Bungie and Activision are parting ways and with it so does Activision's control over the Destiny franchise. Bungie announced today that they are acquiring publishing rights to their popular shooter.

    Mere moments ago, Bungie made the announcement on their website in an aptly named news entry called "Our Destiny."

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is aiming for a June 21, 2019 release on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox One.
