as long as people give them money, there will always be a call of duty.

Lol. Very true. Black Ops 2 is the last CoD for me. I've only played it about 5 times since its release. Perhaps if they fixed the hacks and glitches, it wouldn't be so bad. They only care about their $500 million in 24 hours sales rather than what the fans think.

ChrisW1296d ago

Don't you know the conspiracy theory going around? They purposely put in glitches and make it easy for people to hack.

--The glitches are for people to waste hours trying to find. And they look forward to the next game to see how hard it'll be to find the glitches.

--Making it easy to be hacked... well... another marketing ploy? Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it was!

RickHiggity1296d ago

@ChrisW. No one said it was a conspiracy. Activision just doesn't care enough to fix the issues.

Black ops 2 was actually pretty good...considering. If they are smart, they have been building a big bad ass next gen version of modern warfare for launch. It wont be smart to release a lesser quality one along side gta5 and next gen consoles. Hell, make a deal with microsoft or Sony for a bundle and make MW the face of the launch. But it has to look fantastic.

I am not a cod fan. I play rpgs but i bought black ops for zombies. I just think that despite belief to the contrary, a visible death of cod could hurt the video game industry. It can die after a succesaful launch, but it could also help it succeed. Imagine a 16 yr old seeing a next gen version. Every kid in american will want a console for xmas.

They need to combine Infantry ward and Treyarch and release games every two years not yearly.

Metamorph931296d ago

Black Ops 2 was made by both Infinity Ward and Treyarch. That's why it's similar to the Modern Warfare series.

Who knows? Its such a generic mediocre game with no sense of innovation. But I guess none of that matters as long as it keeps selling millions there will always be another sequel. I've said it once and I'll say it again, Call Of Duty is probably the biggest anomaly of this generation.

until the braindead sheep take thair goggles off and notice how crap the series actually is

Hicken1296d ago

Well, I agreed, but I won't say it's crap.

It's just not as great as people want to believe it is.

The games are still enjoyable, but with how little they change, they're definitely not worth the full price they charge, ESPECIALLY when that price goes up a few months later when the DLC drops(which you NEED in order to get the full multiplayer experience out of the game).

But as long as people are still buying tens of millions of copies, Activision won't feel any pressure to change anything.

Reborn1296d ago

It's business.

It sells well. Why would they stop? When it stops doing so well.. two things could happen.

1. They may stop totally making COD - rare.
2. They go back to the drawing board, and look at how to properly enhance aspects which made it good to begin with. - Possible

But neither of those two will happen.. whilst it rakes in the cash.

TotalSynthesisX1296d ago

Activision killed off Guitar Hero when it started slacking in sales. It's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that Acti might axe CoD too.
