Ridley Scott, director of Alien, Blade Runner, and Gladiator, will be providing his creative talents to the subscription-based Call of Duty Elite service, announces Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg at the 13th Annual Pacific Crest Global Technology Leadership Forum (why don't you add a few more words to that, please?).
He will join Will Arnett, Jason Bateman, Ben Silverman, and Tony Scott in creating "exclusive episodic entertainment built just for the Call of Duty content".
"Just like any other passion that people spend a lot of their free time doing," said Hirshberg, "Call of Duty players share a common language and a common experience, and we think we can create some entertainment content that they will love and talk about and share."
Call of Duty Elite is currently in beta on Xbox Live. With this much talent, I expect nothing less than epicness. Anything else is unacceptable.
