Call of Duty facing a slow death

The Call of Duty franchise may be in a steady decline. According to at least one analyst, sales for the Call of Duty series is slowly but surely slowing down. This latest news has been derived from the sales of the last three Call of Duty titles, Black Ops 2, Modern Warfare 3 and Black Ops. All three of these titles have shown a reasonable decrease in total purchases and predictions are showing the latest title, Black Ops 2, is also following suit.

500 million in the first 24 hours. Yep, slow death.

The franchise has been carrying on for some time now, so it makes sense it is winding down. Still, there is lots of money being made, so its not going to stop anytime soon.

When next gen comes it's gonna start all over again. This game is basically just what Counter Strike was back in the day. Crack.

Hell, Counter Strike is still Crack.

I hope not. Visually one can hope they understand the word improvement. the main thing they have going for them is story because other than that gameplay doesn't change much, change is not major in terms of the player's capabilities.

The primary change other than story is the weapons and the perks. How long can a series last on weapons and perks?

Black Flops 2.

But on a serious note, even a decrease still means its selling a shit ton and making a lot of money.

black flops 2, LooL, it's the most selling game on both consoles and the most played on XBL and PSN

COD is still one of the best, if not the best FPS military type franchises. I for one hope it stays

hasn't been the same since 4, even 3 sucked because the minds of IW didn't develop it.

After that issue with Activision many of the minds behind the great CODS (1,2,4) left, according to those who who payed attention at the various times they occurred.

Modern Warfare 2 was EPIC, it and CoD 4 are the best
