At the risk of repeating myself, Activision is part of the 4 Ancient Evil Ones (Activision, EA, Ubisoft and Konami).
So how is this surprising to anyone?
Of course they do that, it's Activision so yeah. People should stay away from anything they own and try to sell but people are like moths attracted to the killing light that the 4 Ancient Evil Ones wield in order to secure their evil powers.
So if you want to really surprise me, like falling off my seat surprise, let me know when Activision (or anyone of the 3 other evil ones) saves the world or something.
