ESPN's X Games competition is now allowing eSports as part of its roster of things people can win trophies for.
Activision has confirmed that Infinity Ward is working on a Call of Duty game.
Activision is planning to bring three new Call of Duty titles to market between now and April 2012.
Activision exec Tom Tippl has said there are plans to charge Call of Duty fans for online features in future.
Call of Duty was an underdog. It is very hard to get your head into that space with Modern Warfare 2 looming over us all in full SAS gear, blowing cigar smoke in our ears, receiving more pre-orders than any other game in history and scaring all the other shooters into spring 2010, but it's true. The series that dared to lock horns with Medal of Honor was once a plucky young thing with aging Quake 3 Arena tech and publishing difficulties involving a split with EA and last-minute rescue by Activision.
Activision has become the latest high profile game company to dip its toes into Steam (that hissing noise is the sound of the English language having a fit).
The Internet's at it again - this time with rumours that two new Call of Duty titles are currently in development for PC, PS2, PS3, Xbox and Xbox 360.
Call of Duty fans disgruntled with the game's developer, Infinity Ward, are threatening to shut down servers by embarking on a 24 hour strike.
