Activision CEO Bobby Kotick recently revealed in a recent interview with The New York Times that the Call of Duty movie rights are not for sale. He said that many different studios approached him about making a film based on the game but he rejected all of the advances. He feels that “movies based on video games rarely please devoted fans and could taint the brand.” Well done Mr. Kotick, we certainly agree with that stance, at least for now. With other video game properties selling movie rights like hot cakes (See Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell) it is good to see a company ready to wait and see how the other films turn out.
