Report: Activision Considering Call of Duty MMOG

Could a MMOG treatment be in the cards for the hugely popular Call of Duty IP? It seems so according to a report in the LA Times. 

In the article, a source close to Activision is cited as stating the possibility is certainly being considered:

As Activision seems to be discovering this year with Guitar Hero, there's danger when a title is overexposed with too many iterations. Nonetheless, the publisher has aggressive expansion plans for Call of Duty. Although Infinity Ward and Treyarch have produced sequels in alternating years since 2005, the publisher now has a third development studio working on future versions.

One person close to the company said it also was considering adapting Call of Duty as a massively multi-player online world. The genre, in which Activision's Blizzard Entertainment subsidiary is a leader, requires huge upfront investments but can be very profitable as players pay a monthly subscription fee.
