Activision tries to understand Chinese gamers with Call of Duty Online

That summarizes the opportunity and the difficulty Activision faces in bringing Call of Duty to China, home to an enormous population already familiar with the powerhouse brand, but somewhat intimidated by its complexity relative to the games they're already playing. When Activision takes Call of Duty Online into open beta — it hopes by the end of the year — it will culminate three years spent making sure the game arrives in China as a gracious guest, not an arrogant tourist. "If you look at other [Western game companies], they've tried to come into the Chinese market and it's been difficult," Daniel Suarez, the vice president of production for the Call of Duty franchise, said during a presentation at E3.

"For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012," Hirshberg said.

Black Ops 2 helped push Activision to record revenues in 2012 — it was the year's best-selling game in dollars throughout the U.S. and Europe, and brought in $1 billion of revenue within 15 days of its launch in November.
