Call Of Duty Multiplayer Shall Always Be Free
Popping Smoke into a fiery shitstorm.
Activision did say about subscriptions in the future. Fans can now sleep easy, as this isn’t the case for the hit franchise Call Of Duty, which rocketed to the top with Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling the ‘Modern Warfare 2 Membership’ menu shown was an error and that there will never be ‘pay-to-play’ Call of Duty multiplayer.
“To be clear: There is not, and will never be, additional fees required to subscribe and play Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer,” he said on his blog.
“The video above seems to show a user on what appears to be the Xbox Live Gold Membership renewal page via the Marketplace in the guide, but while in-game in Modern Warfare 2 (which is in error),” he also added. “It does not however, prove a pay-to-play subscription model is in the works for Modern Warfare 2, because no such plan exists for this or any other Call of Duty (including the upcoming Black Ops).”
“That said, feel free to cease freaking out.”
Treyarch also squashed rumours of Black Ops having a subscription fee. Treyarch community manager Josh Olin addressed the rumors saying Call of Duty: Black Ops will also be free to play online. “No, you will not have to ‘Pay to Play’ multiplayer either,” he said. “Rumor -> Squashed.”
Activision issued a statement saying “Reports of a subscription membership in Modern Warfare 2 are not true,” a spokesperson said. ” Activision has no plans to charge gamers to play Call of Duty multiplayer.”
