Elite to Include a Call of Duty Web TV Series
We were wondering what would be included in Activision’s Call of Duty Elite premium subscription and we’ve got a partial answer. 1 of the features exclusive to premium members is a web TV series based around the Call of Duty franchise.
Activision Publishing Chief Executive Eric Hirshberg told the Guardian:
We have engaged some top Hollywood talent to create linear video content that will be exclusive to Elite members. That content is inspired by Call of Duty.
Creating a web TV series will give Activision an option to keep Call of Duty players “connected” with the franchise.
If you’re a sports fan, there are lots of ways for you to connect with that hobby, that passion, not just on the day that the games are played, but throughout the week, and we wanted to give [Call of Duty players] real entertainment value.
Mr. Hirshberg wasn’t clear whether the web TV series will be a live-action or an animated series. But the mention of Hollywood talent suggests the former.
If you’re not familiar with web TV series, have a look at the Mortal Kombat: Legacy series, this should give you a rough idea of what you can expect. Down below you can watch episode 1 (of 7).
