Activision went on a domain buying spree this week and registered several China-related domain names in what is likely related to the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II. The 2025 section of Black Ops II features a storyline based on a new cold war that has broken out between the United States and China.
Among the registrations were also the English spelling of Chinese phrases like AnHeiXingDong.com, HeiseXingDong.com, JueShenGsHike.com, and XianDaizHanZheng.com.
Here’s a look at the domains that were registered by Activision through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.
At this point, it’s unknown how Activision plans to use these names or if the registrations are nothing more than the video game company protecting its IP.
