So innovation now directly competes against routine, cookie-cutter gameplay?

On second thought, I see his point.

They don't want to compete with CoD no matter how inferior it is.

Better to let CoD have its undeserved lime light and then strike unimpeded IMO.

Seraphim1975d ago

my problem is this. quit thinking you're competing against CoD. People who are buying CoD are either going to or not going to buy other games.

But Activision publishes both CoD AND Destiny, so they're spreading out their "hits."

I got an idea...dont release cod this year. Support black ops, release Destiny and work on a new next gen cod that revitalizes the franchise instead. Just do something for black ops 2 like release an updated next gen version with 6 new maps etc and sell for $25 and let infinity ward have an extra yr working on MW4. You could actually release it with the 720 and sell more consoles. Maybe its alot of work but ppl just want to play online and microsoft would pay a ton for something like that. I dont think tbey understand that no matter how good it may be, ppl get tired. A year off could be a blessing

Destiny will release this year.
It may release 1 month before COD.

You also said that it DEFINITELY wouldn't be coming to PS3, and look what happened. You are a sage! ;)

So...I assume destiny games will have to launch well before winter time (spring-ish??) and will probably never launch during fall.

That's what I'm thinking. The truth is the COD fanbase need their yearly fix of the COD shot. I would want Destiny to be "That Alternative shooter." But COD's fanbase is to big.

Imo if Activision pushes Destiny as hard as it does COD than I can see it standing a chance with Cod. Look at Halo or Battlefield, those game legitimately stole some of COD's market share.

Destiny just suffers from "that new shooter" on the market the only advantage they have is a very well know developer's name behind the shooter.

This is just an opinion but Activision should team up with MS to promote the Ip on Xbox first. Just to get that Xbox crowd behind them and reassure Xbox owners who supported them first time to trust in Bungie again to make the game a hit.

I was hoping that Activision would die out sometime within these next few years. Sad to say that probably won't happen...

DEATHxTHExKIDx1975d ago

U know that would be ok. I would hate to see this game overshadowed because of CODs BS. And it gives them more time to refine the game.

barb_wire1975d ago

All that COD $$$ is what's paying for 'Destiny' Acti needs that cash cow for now.
