Gamers hoping for Activision to bring their most iconic franchise to the big screen will be disappointed, as the company's CEO , Bobby Kotick, stated in a recent article, that the publisher has no plans for a Call of Duty movie adaptation.
As New York Times report, Activision was asked by several companies to turn the blockbuster franchise into a movie. But, Kotick stated in the article that...
"Movies based on videogames rarely please devoted fans and could taint the brand."
As for tainting the brand, many other game franchises have made leap to the big screen, some of which include Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, and even Super Mario Bros. While these movies were below par movie-wise, their failure on the silver screen barely 'tainted' the franchises success, as all these games are still performing very well today.
But what do you think g1s? Is Activision making a good decision? Or are they missing out on a great opportunity? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
