Activision Investing More Resources In Call Of Duty On PC This Year

During Activision's earnings call, the Call of Duty developer talked a little bit about Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on PC.

Activision Blizzard CEO Coddy Johnson was speaking about the upcoming Black Ops 4 and the the desire to have the game sell well on every platform. Johnson mentioned that the company has "invested significant dedicated resources and design time" in to the PC version to make sure it does well. "We want to make sure we can deliver a great PC game to serve that community," Johnson said.

Johnson did not get specific about what exactly they are doing, but it does sound like the company is aware of its reputation with Call of Duty in the PC space. Ever since Acitivision's decision to eschew dedicated servers with Modern Warfare 2, the publisher has struggled with getting PC gamers to embrace the series as well as they had hoped.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is releasing on October 12 this year, with a reveal event being livestreamed in just a few weeks on May 17.

 

Our Take
With all the rumors swirling around about Black Ops 4, it's at least nice knowing Activision recognizes an area where the series has been weak and is working to fix that. Hopefully they do accomplish that goal.
