Modern Warfare 2 Subscription Plan Rumours Are Bogus
Written Monday, July 19, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
You might have noticed today that the internet has been awash with startling rumours that Activision has been formulating plans to start charging subscription fees to play both Call of Duty and Modern Warfare online.
And as is normally the case with many of these rumours - especially frankly ridiculous ones like this - the whole thing is complete hokum. There are no such plans, and apparently there never will be.
Yes, it sounds silly enough to be true, but think about it. Would Acti really put such plans into action considering its current status as the number 1 most evil games publisher du jour? Don't answer that...
Infinity Ward's Rob Bowling aka fourzerotwo put the rumours to rest on Twitter today (minutes ago in fact), writing, "Modern Warfare 2 subscription plan rumors going around. For the record, nobody has to pay to play COD or MW2 multiplayer, nor will they."
Treyarch's Josh Olin has also weighed in on the issue, declaring that Call of Duty:Black Ops will also introduce no such pay-to-play plans, stating on Twitter, "No, you will not have to 'Pay to Play' #CODBlackOps Multiplayer either. Rumor -> Squashed."
So that's that then. As you were, soldier.
