You may have heard of a rumor that Activision is looking into monetizing the Call of Duty series even further by introducing MMO-style paid subscriptions to further entries in the series. If that got you worrying about Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer, here's something to set your mind at ease.
Speaking through their official forum, Infinity Ward community manager Robert "fourzerotwo" Bowling assured gamers that they have no intention to introduce any extra charges in Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360, PS3, PC).
This rumor has absolutely nothing to do with Infinity Ward or our games, including Modern Warfare 2, Bowling wrote. We would never introduce such a system for Modern Warfare 2, so don t worry. Multiplayer will always be equal and free for everyone as always.
OK, so that clears Modern Warfare 2. We'll have to wait and see about the other future Call of Duty games, though.
