Call of Duty: MW2 and Black Ops – Online will remain free

By Alan Ng - Jul 21, 2010

We can all breathe a sigh of relief, as we have an update from both Infinity Ward and Treyarch, relating to recent concerns of the possibility of subscription models for Call of Duty online play.

Both companies have confirmed that this WON’T be happening in the future. As reported from TheSixthAxis, Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling issued a recent statement on Twitter clearing the air over the confusion.

Here is what he had to say: ‘No such plan exists for this or any other Call of Duty (including the upcoming Black Ops)’. This was backed up by Treyarch too, as Josh Olin also had a word to say on the matter:

“No, you will not have to ‘Pay to Play’ Call of Duty: Black Ops multi player either. Rumor -> Squashed.”

Good news then all around – we were starting to get worried for a moment. See what you almost did Pachter? Let us know your thoughts on this.

    I hardly play COD. But when I do play I play COD4 because MW2 online is such bull****. Black ops online better be good.
    If they ever charge us a sub to play I would never play a COD game ever again unless they make a worthy enough on-line COD game which would have to destroy Battlefields online experience.

    • getsome

      its not bull**** you just suck thats all. MW2 online rocks. And don't you complain about the camping. Because mindlessly running around and just trying to surprise people doesn't take much skill either.

      • Rob

        It is definatly a load of bull IW doesn't seem to care about, the endless streams of people with commando, painkiller, lightweight, noob tubes, danger close- one man army, rpg-noob tube-scavanger, secondary weapons that are better then primary, wall hacks, aimbots, auto uav and much more.

    Looks like someone pointed out the Kotiek how technacally difficult a mmo on the xbox would be. As for Bowling, that useless bell end is simply repeating what he's been told what to say.
