While this was all very nice for Activision Blizzard
, it was the end of the article that really got MMO fans interested: "One person close to the company said it also was considering adapting
Call of Duty as a massively multi-player online world. The genre, in which Activision's Blizzard Entertainment subsidiary is a leader, requires huge upfront investments but can be very profitable as players pay a monthly subscription fee."
