This is a new one.
As everyone knows – or rather, as everyone should know – Call of Duty has always been all about the multiplayer. Some of the campaigns are well worth playing but really, we never thought anybody dropped the $60 only to play the single-player aspect.
And yet, Treyarch design director David Vonderhaar just told One of Swords that it drives him nuts when people don't play multiplayer in CoD. In fact, they put a new Combat Training mode in the upcoming Black Ops II to encourage more people to go online. Said Vonderhaar:
As popular as [Call of Duty] is, there are a lot of people who don’t play [multiplayer]. And quite frankly, this bugs the sh** out of us. They should all play [multiplayer]. And Combat Training helps us get there."
I am so lost right now. I understand that not everyone has their game systems hooked up to the Internet but when it came to CoD, I really thought every last human alive who bought the game fully intended to go online. Hell, it's their top priority, yes? Do you know anyone who bought a CoD game in the past five years who only played the campaign?
'Cuz I don't.
