What is Beachhead? It's the name of a new game studio we just heard about today. Bobby Kotick, the man in charge of Call of Duty publisher Activision dropped it during a phone call today.
All we know about Beachhead is that Kotick promises that the team is making an "innovative new digital platform" and "special services" for the Call of Duty franchise.
What's this mean for Call of Duty fans? Another Activision exec said that the studio's offerings will provide a "best in class online community" and a "suite of services to supercharge the series like never before." Not any clearer? They say it will offer a "suite of services" "integration with consoles", connections to PC gaming and will even offer "exclusive content." Still confused? It's been in development for a year. When Activision explains more, we'll let you know.
Also today from the house of Call of Duty....
