‘Call of Duty’ Movie Probably Won’t Happen — Ever!

Call of Duty

It’s no secret we’re pretty big into video games and the whole idea of bringing some of the fan favorites to life on the big screen. With Ghost Recon, Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, Deus Ex, Need for Speed and God of War as the latest ones to start preliminary motions for their companion movies, we still have our own list of bestsellers we’d like to see join in on the action, one of which is definitely Call of Duty. However, if you’re holding out to see this particular video game hit theaters, you might be waiting for a real long time… like, forever!

Call of Duty is currently one of the bestselling video game series with special consideration for its latest installment Black Ops II. However, despite its clear success and fan backing, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see a ‘Call of Duty’ movie — at least for as long as Bobby Kotick is running the show.

The current CEO of Activision, the home of Call of Duty, was recently profiled by The New York Times and spoke about the gaming series. In the article, writer Amy Chozick wrote:

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.

Sorry, folks, but it looks like our letter-writing campaign failed miserably. Even if you are one of those fans who want to see a ‘Call of Duty’ movie, do you think Kotick has a point? Let us know what you think about this update in the comments.
