What does "game tracking to record new-IP preorders" mean?

And do we know if the beta entails a loot/character wipe before release?

I go on vacation starting July 21st so it better be starting prior!

Halo 1, 2, 3, 4... I was in queue at launch for all. Bring it on!
Similarly all modern Blizzard games.

This will be the perfect mix.

It's on track to have the highest number of pre-orders for a new IP ever.

I thought they had some pretty strict no violence stipulations for videogames. Will be interesting to see what this is.

According to the footnote it's internal estimates from Activision so, uh, take that with a grain of salt until we know more.

It's a F2P multiplayer game. F2P shooters actually do very well in China.

Beta in July? And the game launches in September? There's barely any time between those, i reckon it is more like a stress test and demo than a beta test (i don't doubt that people will find a gazillion exploits though).

Does that include Pokemon?

Because I highly doubt it's going to beat Pokemon.

Edit:Nvm, guess they're just referring to preorders and not actual launch

Holy shit then Salli Saffioti ("whirlwind", ingrid hunnigan, ...) then may either be doing VO for skylanders or RE7, but she didn't feature in the former for a while.
