  • Microsoft Offers Sony a 10 Year Deal to Keep Call of Duty on PlayStation

    The reveal comes as the Microsoft-Activision deal faces harsh scrutiny.

    The $69 billion (USD) deal that would see Microsoft acquire Activision Blizzard is still very much the focus of intense scrutiny from several of the world's regulation authorities. Apparently, one of the big issues that this regulators have is with the idea that Microsoft will pull several long-running multi-platform titles from those non-Microsoft platforms. Obviously, the Call of Duty franchise is one of the...

    Call of Duty Player Caught Cheating... By Himself

    Hoisted by his own petard.

    A Call of Duty: Vanguard player was recently accused of cheating while competing in a recent unofficial paid tournament. The player and streamer, known as Kenji, tried to clear his name by pointing a webcam at his screen while streaming in order to try to prove he wasn't cheating.

  • Call of Duty to Skip Major 2023 Release

    Call of Duty to Skip Major 2023 Release

    A year without an annual Call of Duty release is unheard of.

    There has been a premium Call of Duty game released every year since Call of Duty 2 back in 2005. Prior to that, the first title in the franchise was released in 2003, meaning that only 2004 went without a new entry. Since 2005, new Call of Duty releases were like clockwork. They were as regular as a yearly Madden release or you when eating a diet high in fiber.

    According to an exclusive report from Bloomber...

    Call of Duty's New Anti-Cheat, Ricochet, to Use Kernel-Level Driver

    This is about as invasive an anti-cheat as you can get.

    On October 12, the Call of Duty devs issued a vague, ominous, and really cringey warning to cheaters. As it stands, the new anti-cheat for Call of Duty: Warzone wasn't slated to be released until Call of Duty: Vanguard released later this year. So, what then were they teasing to be revealed today?

    Well, it was the reveal announcement for their new anti-cheat. They call it Ricochet, which is not to be confused with...
