Call of Duty:Black Ops 2 to be the biggest Entertainment Launch of all time

We saw it happen with Modern Warfare 2 , we saw it with Black Ops, then again with Modern Warfare 3 and now all hopes are on this year’s Call of Duty installment, Black Ops 2. The sequel to 2010′s best-selling game , ‘Black Ops’ . Call of Duty wasn’t always the way it is now. There was a time when Call of Duty was trying hard to find an audience for themselves but they were lacking at something or the other. That was the time when Medal of Honor ruled the First-person shooters’ genre. Then came along , Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare. The game that changed the face of Call of Duty forever.

Yeah yeah we know same as every year... to bad this feat will only last a year :/

Gunnslinger1844d ago

I don't about CoD killer, I think Halo 4 will compete pretty well. CoD biggest nightmare is Halo, and now they are direct competitors in similar time frame.

I think Halo 4 got enough in it to push forward!


I know for sure which game I am picking up and it an't Cod.

most of my friends are getting Halo 4 this time round as well.

I do expect Cod to sell more because it's multiplat and there just seems to be an endless stream of sheep who will by the game no matter what.

after the mess POS game that was MW3 most of my friends have lost confidence in Cod, regardless of the changes to blops2.

Halo 4 will be the only big competitor for this release. Battlefield can't really compete. Halo is a different kind of fps and Battlefield tries to beat COD in the fps war genre..just not going to happen. 60fps, industry wide, is the way to go and battlefield with it's 30fps and ps3 controller input lag doesn't really stand a chance.

mafiahajeri1844d ago

I meant the next cod... :/

ALLWRONG1844d ago

Halo 4 will do pretty good for an exclusive game. The high reviews for Halo don't hurt.

guitarded771844d ago

I don't understand why some get all butt hurt about CoD doing exceptionally well. As gamers we should be happy that there are so many backing the industry, making it bigger than movies or music. You can still have your less recognized games, and the masses can have their CoD. Something for everyone. Do you really want your beloved franchise to have the same success as CoD? That means you will have more wankers playing online at the end of the day.

I love how people kind of make of that the biggest game or biggest selling game means it's good.

2007 when MW was released I got the Orange Box intsead

2008 when World at War was released I got Fallout 3

2009 when MW2 came out I got Uncharted 2

2010 Black ops came out I got GT5, Fable 3 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

2011 with MW2 I got Uncharted 3, Skyrim and Assassins Creed Revelation, Rayman Origins, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Batman Arkham City

This year I got AC3 and will get Playstation All Stars and Halo 4

Point is there are always better games around the same time release as COD which deserve more recognition

Gunnslinger1844d ago

Great comment. Totally agree with your last sentence but there are people with different mentalities. People who enjoy FPS' don't necessarily play RTS' or Racing games etc. The same is the case with Call of Duty. People who enjoy Call of Duty don't necessarily play other games, Battlefield , Medal of Honor or Halo.

It's just about preference. I love every genre and every game you mentioned above is awesome.

P.S You can always buy more than 1 game a year, you know.

Oschino19071844d ago

OMG you have different gaming taste from other people! You deserve a cookie, or maybe a gold star... Everybody needs to undertsnad your gaming taste is YOUR gaming taste. I own many of the games you listed, others I could care less about and have zero interest in playing. But if someone asked me about them, I could still sell them on the game and point out all the reasons other people like and enjoy it.

Its called not being a dick and accepting that just because something isn't your cup of tea maybe its the perfect brew for others. Saying things as fact or obvious to anyone who know any better is just being an over opinionated douche. Sorry but its getting tiring seeing people around here jumping into articles for games they don't like or play and pointing out how their game(s) of preference are better and should be held in a higher regard.

Go to articles for all the games you listed as ones you play or like and go blow your horn as loud as you want, but really, really what was the point of you even comming in here let alone commenting in the manner you did?

Those are good games, but I like COD games.I like having a new game every year. It keeps it fresh for me.

I play tons of other games, but COD is now becoming Underrated because of how much hate it's getting.

Black Ops 2 will be a GOTY quality game. Better than all the rest, and about 1.5X better than MW3.

Cam9771844d ago (Edited 1844d ago )

Blame teen mom's for they're the ones who keep on letting more and more kids out!
Anyway, this is a good achievement for a game; we should all be proud.

Mikeyy1844d ago


What? If anything I wish MW4 was developed by anybody but Infinity Ward. IW is DEAD, all the talent left. MW3 was a complete disaster, and the Lag compensation scandel was the final blow for IW for a lot of us.

I trust treyarch, I was playing Black ops last night, zero lag, zero bullshit deaths, and I had ample time to react in every gun fight.

Play MW3, instant death, instant death, no screen shake, no red flashes. Watch kill cam, shake your head ever time. MW3 is BROKEN.

Black Ops 2 probably will be the biggest entertainment launch because:

1. It looks like Treyarch actually tried to make a better game. With a full blown Zombies campaign, better graphics, and many more additions the game just looks great.

2. Because lots of players wanting to get away from Infinity Wards shitty copy and pasted MWF3.

FarCryLover1821844d ago

It does seem like they have put their 150% effort into this title. I like the COD games that they make, but I think it would be cool if Activision would let them make an original IP because I think the talent is there (but they are forced to stick to making COD.... but I'm not really complaining though. Anyone remember Spider-man 2 game? Great superhero game last gen).

Oschino19071844d ago (Edited 1844d ago )

Speak for yourself. You lose all credability when you go from speaking facts to spouting off emotionally fueled rants with no facts because you didn't like something.

By the way my most played CODs online are,
MW3 close behind 4
[email protected]

In terms of how good I think they were online overall,
BO close behind 4
MW2 close to being 2nd if not for lack of balance and support
[email protected]

Oh and to be clear, I enjoyed them all overall for the most part, just some more then others, I didn't regret buying any of them as pissed as I may have gotten at times.

Having said that my expectations are high and I expect Treyarch to finally win me over and provide my new #1 in both catagories. I like a lot of what they seem to be doing and changing. I expect modes I may have ignored or had little interest in before to ones I can throughly enjoy to a higher degree then ever before. While modes I already enjoyed to be taken to a whole nother level of enjoyment.

Probably, what about GTA5. Are the new 'gamers' who mostly play CoD interested in GTA? With the crossover, the CoD franchise will probably have brought millions of consumers into the market who will probably be interested in GTA5 (Take 2 will probably think about this in their marketing)

I think CoD is hovering around it's peak popularity and the new titles will reduce in sales slowly, it's got some legs yet though.

Cam9771844d ago

I fully agree, just wait until GRAND THEFT AUTO V comes out - s*** will get serious.

FarCryLover1821844d ago

The new "gamers" might just play COD, but it's not like people who played GTA in the past have disappeared. We are all still here.

kevnb1844d ago

I wonder if Halo 4 will kill its thunder this year, people are starting to get sick of cod and the 360 is the biggest platform for it.
