Meh.

I love how any news stories to anything even remotely related to Call of Duty bring up the same kind of reaction.

He's getting out before the crunch starts on Modern Warfour.

I feel entirely okay that I had to google "hover hands" to get the joke. Could that photo be any smaller? lol Probably for the best though. Anyway, good luck to him. Always sounds like a gentleman and an awesome dad.

Wonder where he's gonna respawn.

The community face of Activision steps down with a perfunctory statement? Can't wait to see this one play out. Something is amiss.

maybe he wanted to actually make a game again.... instead of just pretending to for money.

maybe his inner artist got tired of putting pretty filters over a single great painting....

maybe they just fired him, i don't know.

I can't be the only one who read "he may be headed next" as "he may be beheaded next".

Well there was no point in him joining Respawn until they had something to talk about.

Respawn already have a creative strategist.

Looks like the era of Call of Duty is truly over.

Yes, because their Community Manager stepped down. Obviously the content and overall of the games will change drastically...

Love how any CoD article brings out multiple flamers. It's not my favorite franchise either, but I do enjoy playing the multiplayer with my friends quite regularly (in private chat of course for obvious reasons).

I fail to see why so many basement-dwellers feel the need to just talk shit all of sudden or, being more polite, why they "hope this era is over".

That's like, if I didn't like eating a certain food, but a lot of other people did, and suddenly that food was going to go away, and I said "thank god we won't have it anymore!" What do I care if something I never interacted with existed or not? It would be an utterly stupid thing to say.

You're pointing out the incompetence of other people - in a rather unsophisticated fashion - while using "herp derp" yourself? 
 
Just... shush. Whenever you feel you need your fingers to scrape across your keyboard and hit "post reply", give it a second thought, and maybe a few reassuring subsequent thoughts.

It'll be Modern War4Free.

The "main face" behind Call Of Duty, joined the company in 2006.

Call of Duty came out in 2003.

He joined the company in 2006

He was considered the most important guy developing the franchize, and he joined the company 3 years after it was created.

maybe he'll play professional bowling

No no no no, Modern 4Fee. The game will come in pieces, and they'll microtransact each individual piece of the disc.

Nah, every time I hear this idiotic argument (someone likes something that I don't? What a bunch of fucking losers!) I just slap my erect dick on the keyboard. I'm pretty much guaranteed that whatever ends up on the screen will be at the same level as whatever dumb arguments they have. For instance, yours.

@Grimluck343: If you like shitty games that's great. Continue wasting your parents money on shitty games. You're free to do so. The same as I'm free to call it a shit game. Cause it is.

Holy thread necro Batman. Also, did you read that whole thing I wrote about people bitching because someone likes things that they don't? That was directed towards people like you.

Eh, he's responding to a bot. (the source of the necro-post.)
