PC Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike Plans

A note in Activision Blizzard's financial results we missed when they were released yesterday indicates the Windows version of the First Strike DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released by March 31, as there's a note saying: "On February 1, 2011, Activision Publishing released Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike, the first add-on pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, on Xbox LIVE®. The map pack set new Xbox LIVE records with more than 1.4 million downloads in the first 24 hours, an increase of more than 25% over last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package.(7) The map pack also will be available on the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system on March 3, 2011 and on the PC later in the quarter."

I think i'll keep playing BC2: Vietnam until BF3 comes out. Vietnam is how DLC's should be made. I gave up on CoD after World at War.

I bought Black Ops, and it has to go down as my worst purchase of last year. The game has not moved on at all since COD 4.

In fact, with an engine this old you would have thought that the release would be bomb proof - but there were more technical issues than ever.

The sooner people stop buying this turgid pile of shit the better.

By the way - fuck the map pack. Obviously too busy turning around map packs to milk the player base than fixing the game ... great strategy!
I was just going to come in here and say this. The droves of people buying this stuff has to stop for any true innovation to occur. I had a short period of fun with Black Ops, but it was mostly the same as MW2 and COD4. I'm ready for something new now.

Of course, the new CoD game is only a couple of months away. They have to get as much juice out of this one as possible before Nov when the new game comes out.

I think they'll start hyping that one around mid summer. By then they have to erect at least 2 more map packs to milk this cow as much as possible. Kodick wants a new boat

What? Brink is not out till May 17th. The only FPS to be released before the Black Ops DLC is Homefront, which I hope will do well but wont steal COD's thunder.

Not sure what you are reading, but read this again:

The map pack also will be available on the PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system on March 3, 2011 and on the PC later in the quarter."

No date given....depending on when their quarter falls, it could be as late as June. And without a date given, my money is on a June release.

i don't know what your reading but the first sentence says "A note in Activision Blizzard's financial results we missed when they were released yesterday indicates the Windows version of the First Strike DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released by March 31"

Their financial quarter ends on March 31st, so it should release before then. Honestly, I figure it will be out on the same day as the PS3 version... they probably haven't secured the exact date with Valve yet, which is why they didn't mention it outright.

I wonder how much they'll charge for 4 maps this time? Doesn't matter I suppose; people will still buy it in droves, God help them.
