Activision Denies Blacklisting

Following up on a report last week from a French website claiming to have been uninvited from an event by Activision over reporting a Black Ops 2 rumor, VentureBeat has word from Activision that this is a "misunderstanding," saying: "Activision doesn’t blacklist journalists. We believe this was a misunderstanding and are working towards a resolution." Thanks GamesIndustry.biz (registration required).

It's amazing this company can't just shut up. I would assume you'd hire halfway competent marketing people but I guess since you can sell a gazillion copies of this game no matter what it's just wasting money to hire people above the absolute minimum.

Here a suggestion. Stop Talking. Even if this guy is a total liar and you never even asked him to take the blog/article down you still come out looking worse just by opening your mouth.

If you'd hired competent people I'm guessing this whole issue would have ended up looking like this:

Amazon puts up Black Ops 2 listing. Internet notices. You contact amazon to take it down. You notice that some sights are reporting this. Release press release saying the next CoD is going to be black Ops 2, more info to follow, stay tuned to Blackops2.com for more info.

Oh and hey, you may want to have a game plan for putting up your first trailer on your website at a moments notice should that get leaked before your next big event. That is what I would plan on...but I'm sure you're already got that setup...right?
