Activision Blizzard has found itself in a bit of legal trouble lately for being a shitty company, but it still has games to launch.
So with Call of Duty: Vanguard nearing release, Activision released a new trailer to hype up the upcoming playable alpha. However, the Activision logo is suspiciously absent from the both the trailer and the alpha’s start up screen.
Hey, who can blame them right? Activision’s name is toxic right now, am I right?
Not so, according to Activision Blizzard. In a statement to reporter Stephen Totilo:
“Call of Duty has continued to expand into an incredible universe of experiences. This was a creative choice that reflects how Vanguard represents the next major installment in the franchise…”Activision Blizzard Corporate Flack
What does that statement even mean? How is that even a valid answer to the question? Matter of fact, the Activision logo only appears in small legal mouse type. Meanwhile every previous Call of Duty game boots up by proudly displaying Activision’s logo, loud and proud.
Listen, I understand, you don’t want your name to tarnish what could possibly be the biggest launch of the year. Just don’t give me chicken shit and tell me its chicken salad.
