Activision Blizzard and Tencent Holdings Limited announced a strategic relationship to bring Call of Duty Online… to Chinese game players. The game will be free-to-play and monetized through the sales of in-game items.

Call of Duty Online has been in development by Activision Publishing for approximately two years. Under the multi-year agreement with Activision Publishing, Tencent has the exclusive license to operate Call of Duty Online in mainland China.

The new game Call of Duty Online will allow players the ability to personalize their weapons, characters and equipment like never before in a Call of Duty game. Using an in-game store, players can enhance their weapons, gear, and perks. The new game will also bring a variety of game modes and maps and features an original story told through a series of Special Operations missions based on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare universe.

No word yet if Call of Duty Online is going to be released in US or Europe.

      It’s because china was just able to play on game’s once again and they want to be nice it’s not all about us

    • . on March 6, 2016

      Because its fake

    • . on October 31, 2016

      Activision has a branch only located in China with limited staff, which is why it took so long to make.

  2. Dillbert222 on May 29, 2013

  6. 70calories on July 7, 2012

  7. HurDerp on July 6, 2012

    Call Of Duty… -.- waaaaaaaayyyy overrated game. Durrrr I play call of duty so I’m awesome…

  8. .... on July 5, 2012

    You guys realize they are making it only for China since CONSOLES are BANNED in China. So calm down!

  9. SamKipp on July 5, 2012

    Truly amazing. This will make more money than the Xbox360 version because thet costs membership For online game play

  10. Teoko on July 4, 2012

    bad move…realese it to eu too… :/

    • Nymphilis on July 5, 2012

      Dont see why you are complaining, you should welcome the thought that this “blight” has not been brought to EU. Honestly most anything that comes out of china, especially a recreation of a game that has been developed and tested mainly in the US, EU, and CA, is going to make the whole series look like crap.

      Count your blessings here, and move on people don’t waste your time on this hype, you will seriously be disappointed.

  11. mike on July 4, 2012

    yey china-only, haters gonna hate

  12. 3abdo911 on July 4, 2012

    k to Bring out One of the Top 10 FPS Game on the world to the Online Game thats DAM COOL and i hope it be just like the others 😀

  13. blackjoker86 on July 4, 2012

    ok cod has become boring to me but now its coming f2p i wonder are the gonna make it pay to win hmmmmm +D

  14. Payback on July 4, 2012

    High possibility of the game being pay2win due to it being developed by a Chinese game company (Did I say developed? I meant copy pasted.)

  15. brandnewdaddy on July 4, 2012

    WHY WHY WHY!!! because EA made a free version of Battle Field so Activision has to do the same as well. Stop whining, everyone has seen how big EA failed with the f2p version of BF so this most likely will not be a big hit either.
    Basic timeline of this game(like any other f2p fps)
    Hype>CB>CB2>OB>game stays in OB for 2 years>initial hype is gone after 6 months>Final Release>almost 80% of gaming population in game moves on to the next big fps.
    So basically all in all, this game will be flushed in about 3 years, I for one wont be sapped into thinking this game is cool, sorry I hate COD games always have always will.

    • codfollows on July 5, 2012

      all cod does is follows. BF3 new engine, cod said they would have one but the did not. ghost recon is in the future, now black ops 2 is in the future. BF f2p online, now cod online -.- can you guys not see thing?? Really?

  16. Kocain on July 4, 2012

    can’t wait to play it
    i wonder between CODO and artic combat which one will be better

  17. surice17 on July 4, 2012

    hell yeah bring it on

  18. Steward69 on July 3, 2012

    Damn! This game actually looks pretty good. Shame it’s not coming to the US anytime soon. Those Chinese BASTARDS!!!!! My favorite free to play is BFP4F with AVA coming in second. I have just about every free FPS but these 2 are my fav. I am Creeper69,Tomco69,HAWH69 and DRAGOON69 on BFP4F. Look me up. See you on the battlefield solders!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Durian on July 3, 2012

    I hate this to say this, but Battlefield Play4free is even better than this crap….

  20. Zonitron on July 3, 2012

    You will probably be able to buy nukes for real money so you can just spam them all round if you pay enough.

  21. triggerhappy on July 3, 2012

    trust it’s not going to come out in the u.s or Europe, if it does activision will lose so much money on the newer cod series, u.s and euro stands the most on activision money making franchise

  22. Armored on July 3, 2012

    Another Pay2Win bullshit game. Activision can suck my nuts

    • Payback on July 5, 2012

      It’s Acti. Whatchu gonna do about it?

  23. KingDwarfus on July 3, 2012

    wo looks really good when does it come out in europe

  24. zoren580 on July 3, 2012

    Hope it comes to India it is close to china

  28. dfgdfgdfdf on July 3, 2012

    china gets evrything……europe feels left out

    • ZXY101 on July 3, 2012

      You think Europe feels left out??
      hows about South Africa!

    • Payback on July 5, 2012

      O RLY??? A lot of Asian gamers feel left out. Like Black Light, Army Rage and a lot other decent F2P shooter. None of it provide Asia server.

  29. lilfighter on July 3, 2012

    Why the f** bother with this when we have Heroes and Generals as a very good upcoming totally fair and free2play MMOFPS-RTS that has graphics nicier than alot of pay2play games?

    • Neosky on July 5, 2012

      exaclty. Hell you want to play big a** FPS, F2P? Try some Planetside 2, you’ll never know what hit ya. Still playing PS1, and this shnit is crazy huge! COD is crap to begin with, least multiplay… run and gun? Go play Unreal/Quake, want something a little more thought needing? Play Battlefield or counter strike… Give up COD on Multi and keep making decent single player games.

  30. hu;i on July 3, 2012

    im very intrested i hope this game will rock because it looks good

  31. lilfighter on July 3, 2012

    God damn…F*** this shit, I am a huge fan of free2play but this is only going to make me shit rainbow flavoured shit in the middle of their Duty franchise.

  32. IHateMMOs on July 3, 2012

    Well all its hate aside, I think it might work if they play their cards right. COD4 was great, so we already know they can make a decent multiplayer, and I liked some Black Ops, but if its made by some random asian company, it’s probably going to be just as terrible as Combat Arms, Counter Strike, Sudden attack, arctic combat, point blank, and all in between. Give it to great devs like Zombie Studios, or just make it yourself, but no Chinese devs please, no offense to China. And why is this and WarFace in Asia and not NA. Warface is developed by CryTek for Christ Sake!

    • IHateMMOs on July 3, 2012

      Wait hold on, did I say counter strike, I meant CrossFire. Holy crap, bad typo.

      • jusatin on July 3, 2012

        Good thing you made that right, was going to make a rage post about counter strike 😀

      • Ddpt12PT on July 3, 2012

        warface IS coming to na so why talking about it

  33. DutchCrafter on July 3, 2012

    Why always Chine?! Why not Europe?

    • G on July 3, 2012

      Becouse Chine is the biggest market.

  34. Tomo on July 3, 2012

    lets hope they did it this time better than other one…MW3 was just a copy of MW2 what is next part of MW1…lets BIGLY hope that they did it better this time

  35. Daniel on July 3, 2012

    Looks like Call of Duty 4…. which was awesome. And I didn’t really like Arctic Combat, so if this comes out in U.S, that would be great!

    • GodzGamerz on July 3, 2012

      I think you are fully stupid. This is a huge mistake. When this comes out. It is going to ruin all new free fps games that are going to be coming out. They will all try to copy this and not good games like Unreal, Quake, and Counter Strike.

      • Jory on July 4, 2012

        You need to stfu. If he likes it then leave him alone, it’s HIS opinion not YOURS.

        I have not seen a game that’s copied a F2P game before, and I don’t think anyone would ever copy off a game thats been running for 4 years on the same game engine.

      • Random Guy on July 4, 2012

        If you know nothing about shooters, don’t call other stupid. F2P FPS’s will not be hurt by this game. And games have tried copying Counter Strike, and look what were left with. Combat Arms, Soldiers Front, Sudden Attack, CrossFire, Actic Combat and many, many more. Call of Duty is good, there’s just much better games to choose from, some of which are free.

        • Payback on July 4, 2012

          If you tried this and spent money for the in-game item. You’re stupid. Why? There’s already a F2P version of CoD (well MW2 anyways) called FourDeltaOne.

          • Rafficka on March 24, 2013

            Dumbass FourDeltaOne isnt f2p you have to buy MW2 first.

          • Payback on March 24, 2013

            Oh, before anyone rant about “buying” MW2.
            what about asking some pirates by the bay?

      • dügvgltgö on April 8, 2013


      • Grethe on July 30, 2014

        All new F2P fps games are already ruined. And i know that you wrote that 2 years ago, but it was the same at that time…

  36. akakazucat on July 3, 2012

    Hope that stays in China, I don’t want that worthless franchise to ruin PC gaming too.

    • Septimus on July 3, 2012

      …CoD is already on PC…. Check your steam if you don’t believe me… This is just the F2P version.

    • FpsGamer on July 7, 2012

      From what i know, this will be activision/ blizzard first F2P title and if you notice since the company started; They’ve only done subscription based titles. So they will be unexperienced in this category, this could make a great game but also could be a failure if they avoid the problem that other F2P FPS’s have had in the past. We will see when the game comes out and we then can base our opinions on what present in the content/ gameplay.

    • iknew911 on August 6, 2013

      call of duty is already on pc, you’re an idiot.

    • dsdfssdf on May 3, 2014
