Activision boss Bobby Kotick has revealed that if he had the ability to snap his fingers and change one thing at Activision, he'd opt to have a subscription-based Call of Duty game.

"I would have Call of Duty be an online subscription service tomorrow," Kotick told the Wall Street Journal. "When you think about what the audience's interests are and how you could really satisfy bigger audiences with more inspired, creative opportunities, I would love to see us have an online Call of Duty world. I think our players would just have so much of a more compelling experience."

Kotick also revealed that he believes the franchise's audience is keen for such an offering.

"I think our audiences are clamouring for it," he said. "If you look at what they're playing on Xbox LIVE today, we've had 1.7bn hours of multiplayer play on LIVE. I think we could do a lot more to really satisfy the interests of the customers. I think we could create so many things, and make the game even more fun to play. We haven't really had a chance to do that yet."

I think we need to read these comments in the context of running a business. Whenever Kotick talks it's about running one of the most successful companies in gaming, and we should acknowledge that it's his job to make the company money before anything. He doesn't completely compromise creativity by doing so, but he puts the money in games that people enjoy the most, and I'm sure the people who noticed improvements in MW2 over MW would understand the benefit of this.

And this is an interview with the Wall Street Journal... not 1up or whatever. Business is a completely different language.
