Activision pulled the covers off the latest installment in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: WWII. It marks the first time the series has returned to World War II since 2008’s World at War. After Infinite Warfare‘s relatively lackluster performance, will the return to WWII refresh the series or will it just be a rehash of an older title?
The FCC also indicated that they’ll begin the process of repealing their own Net Neutrality regulations this May. Consumer advocates fear ISPs will begin to charge consumers or services for prioritized access or speed increases, among other concerns.
- Call of Duty: WWII announced: We know to expect a new Call of Duty annually, it’s now just a matter of where or when it will be set. With WWII, Call of Duty returns to its roots with a campaign set in the European theater of WWII. But after the first trailer the guys are split. Will it elevate itself above the nearly decade old cliches, or will it simply be a retread of Call of Duty 1, 2, and 3?
- FCC signals Net Neutrality repeal: In an entirely expected move, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai indicated that his agency will vote to begin the process of repealing Net Neutrality regulations. The vote on May 18 will then lead to a process of public commenting, a process Pai has already panned in advance as simply the product of activist groups. Without Net Neutrality protections in place, internet providers will be free to charge increased prices to access popular services like Netflix or Spotify.
