Electronic Arts has lobbed fresh mud in the direction of rival publisher Activision, labelling the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops II as “tired.”
Writing on Twitter, Kevin O’ Leary, EA’s global product manager, reckons the long-running military franchise should have a brief rest from its annual release schedule.
“Poor [Black Ops II], you look tired, you should take a year off and rest,” he wrote.
The comments echo previous banter between both publishers leading up to the release of 2011’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3. This year however, Call of Duty will be going toe-to-toe with the next instalment in EA’s Medal of Honor series.
