Activision Comments on Possibility of a Call of Duty Movie

With several major franchises getting film adaptations, it only seems natural for one of the biggest of all time to get one too right? Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has commented on the possibility of their being a Call of Duty movie hitting cinemas in the future.

Kotick told the New York Times that he has received several offers from movie studios regarding a Call of Duty film, but has turned down every single one. Kotick feels that “movies based on video games rarely please devoted fans and could taint the brand.”

Many fans seem to love the idea of a film, but it appears that Kotick doesn’t want to risk cheapening the brand. I have to agree with Kotick, no matter who produces the film it will never live up to fan’s expectations, so it’s better to just avoid it altogether.

Would you like to see a Call of Duty movie? Let us know in the comments below.
