The Call of Duty game franchise might have some sort of in game charge for premium content or multiplayer subscription services very soon. Possibly in April. One analyst thinks that a monetized second tier of multiplayer online gaming might arrive at about that time.
Wedbush Securities’ January newsletter states that “Activision remains a top pick, primarily due to the company’s potential to create and monetize a second tier of multiplayer online gaming for its Call of Duty franchise. We expect this to occur during the first quarter of 2011”. But the big question is whether enough gamers would be willing to pay for something like this.
