According to website Fusible, Activision registered the following websites: CODBlackOps3.com, CODBlackOps4.com, CODBlackOps5.com, CODBlackOps6.com, BlackOps4.com, BlackOps5.com, BlackOps6.com, CallOfDutyBlackOps3.com, CallOfDutyBlackOps4.com, CallOfDutyBlackOps5.com, CallOfDutyBlackOps6.com, CallofDutyMW5.com, and CallofDutyMW6.com.
As Fusible pointed out, the domains were registered by DNS tination Inc, a Whois privacy service offered by MarkMonitor. According to Fusible, this is a brand protection agency used by Apple, so it’s highly likely that these are being registered by Activision.
At the very least, this is domain protecting, and necessary domain protecting especially after that whole ModernWarfare3.com brouhaha.
But even if this is just domain protecting, can you imagine Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 6 or Black Ops 6? And people complain about Final Fantasy games…
Kotaku is following up with Activision and will update should the company comment.
