The pre-trial hearings continue in the West/Zampella case against Activision, and now we are learning just how much Activision has paid for Call of Duty... (Activision, Call of Duty, Industry, Infinity Ward)

Damn if they got 493 million, how much did they actually make from the game? WOW

Black Ops alone made over $1b so I'd say they still made a good profit.

50 quid a game with 20 mill sales leaves 1 billion. But alot of that will go into costs of sales. I dunno how much the publisher makes per copy. Cod sells roughly 20 mill copies per game don't they??

$60 * 20million sales = $1.2 Billion.

They've made $1.2 billion the las 3 years, so $493 million isn't hurting them. Also more than likely, Infinity Ward is moving on to Call of Duty 5 for the PS4 and Next box as a launch titles. Activision wants to keep COD as the shooter to go to, so they want the best COD they can get at launch. And Sony, MS, and Activision want consoles to succeed since they are huge money makers for each of them, so it makes sense. If there's a great COD Day 1 on the PS4 and Next Box, you can expect both consoles to sell around 10 million consoles Year 1, as long as their first party games are there too, and the price is right.

I wish COD would go away.

Why ? A lot of people enjoy it.

It's over shadowing a lot of great games, that's why.
AdmiralSnake  +   821d ago
It's overshadowing what ? Maybe people have no interest in those games ?

I find it hilarious on N4G they sit here and bash people who buy cod, but then want those same people to support their favorite games... LOL.

Again, a lot of people enjoy it. The sales speak yearly, of course I speak facts but the disagrees come flying in lmao.

Yeah people keep buying games they hate, LOL.

Regardless of this trials outcome, Activision are the real losers in this. They've lost their two most talented developers, the fact so many IW members jumped ship with them speaks louder than any words about just how talented West and Zampella are. Activision can only keep churning out mediocre sequels based on the engine they created for so long and it's clearly obvious they haven't got anyone working on it who is talented enough to take the series forward.
