There’s been a flurry of news in recent months of film adaptations of various console video game titles being put into development.
Today though comes word that the most popular video game franchise of them all will NOT be making the jump – Activision’s “Call of Duty” series.
In a recent profile piece on Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, the article says: “Call of Duty may look like a movie, but Mr. Kotick has little interest in turning it into one – and has turned down several studios’ requests. He says movies based on video games rarely please devoted fans and could taint the brand.”
The most recent game in the series, “Black Ops II,” made over $1 billion in revenue in just 15 days.
