Activision is Being Sued Showing Military Equipment in Call of Duty Games

Numerous Call of Duty games have featured or referenced Humvees since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Hence, they made the decision to entrust Call of Duty World War 2 to Sledgehammer Games, a correct insight, considering that the game has raised $500 million at the launch weekend only, attracting considerable audience and criticism.

This was revealed by Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, who said that Sledgehammer Games originally wanted to make COD: Advanced Warfare 2. This issue came to a head previous year with the release of COD: Infinite Warfare, with that game's announcement trailer being one of the most disliked videos on YouTube of all time.

Call of Duty: WWII has been fairly successful so far. The vehicle was released in line with the launching of the "Call of Duty: Black Ops" Edition.

In an interesting turn of events, American auto manufacturer AM General is taking Activision to court over the appearance of their signature Humvee vehicle making appearances in the Call of Duty series. The game has doubled Infinite Warfare's opening weekend sales in its first three days and is tracking to make a fairly successful comeback for the franchise. Call of Duty: WWII is a huge success already, garnering $500 000 000 in sales in its opening weekend alone. He added that the developers are "committed to supporting the community with continuous improvements and new content".

Activision has been showing a number of different military equipment for it Call of Duty games and while there hasn't been any issue over the years, the company is finally facing a lawsuit for showing trademarked Humvee vehicles in COD.
