  There are so many things in this mixed up, crazy-ass world we just can’t predict. When and where will the next horrendous natural disaster occur? When will McDonalds finally get their shit together and start delivering properly, like those Amazon drones? When will Pokémon Go actually work right? When will freaking Bieber post another selfie of his bare scrawny ass on a boat on social media and make me vomit blood from my eyes again?  

I don’t know, Ego friends. I just don’t. And that’s what’s terrifying. We just roll with the punches, take whatever BS life decides to throw at us, and hope it’ll all work out for the best.

All of that said, though, there is one thing we can rely on. One stalwart, ever-trustworthy aspect of gaming life that’ll remain constant. There will always be Call of Duty.

It was a cold, cold day in the Underworld last week when a Mario game was announced for iDevices. With smartphone gaming becoming a bigger and bigger deal, what does this mean for the big names of the console scene? There is no bigger name than Call of Duty, really, and Activision CEO Bobby Kotick assures us that it always will be. When asked about the franchise’s future, GameSpot reports, Kotick said:

"We've had Call of Duty games played on virtually every console for the last 14 years, so the idea of having a game that centers around armed conflict through never run out of ideas for Call of Duty games. There will always be Call of Duty games. And they'll be played on a variety of devices."

‘Activision is generally platform agnostic and will release games wherever fans are,’ the report concludes. Knowing Activision, wherever cashtacular is would be a little more accurate, but still. Despite all the backlash and bitching about Infinite Warfare, the mighty COD isn’t going anywhere.
