Confirming earlier speculation, Activision (ATVI +3.7%) announces it's partnering with Chinese Internet messaging and gaming giant Tencent (TCEHY.PK) to bring an online version of Call of Duty to Chinese gamers. The game will be free to play, and monetized via virtual goods purchases. Rival Electronic Arts (EA) is teaming up with Tencent to bring The Sims Social to China. (yesterday)
