The EA/Activision battle has already started, and less than 24 hours after Call of Duty: Black Ops II was announced. Last year, the two companies got a little snarky concerning the Modern Warfare 3 / Battlefield 3 competition and this year, EA will present us with Medal of Honor: Warfighter .
So we might as well get a jump on the pot shots, yes? We point you in the direction of EA global product manager Kevin O'Leary's Twitter page , where he pokes a little fun at the Black Ops II debut trailer :
"Poor Black Ops II, you look tired, you should take a year off and rest."
Now, it's anyone's guess as to why O'Leary thinks the game looks "tired." It could be due to the visuals in the trailer, which might be evidence of that aging engine, or maybe he just wanted to say it 'cuz he thinks the entire franchise is "tired." Either way, it's always fun to watch the jabs fly. Admittedly, EA has done more of the punching in the past, as Activision executives are usually content to just talk about CoD sales, but maybe somebody will respond this time…
