Activision has treated itself to 17 domain names, all related to Call of Duty and China; in Black Ops 2
, set to drop in November, part of the storyline spans a future cold war between the United States and China. It may be that these domains are related to that facet, as the registrations include blackopschina.com
, bochina.com and callofdutychina.com, Fusible reports.
The other domains span from modernwarfarechina.com to heisexingdong.com, and include a few other Chinese phrases. This could be Activision protecting its brand, or it could even have something to do with Activision's online, free-to-play Call of Duty title in China
. Activision secured the names, as it generally does, through brand-protection service MarkMonitor.
