Call of Duty: Ghosts Goes To War Against Battlefield 4 As Activision And EA Shoot For Next Gen

There’s a war brewing. Activision and developer Infinity Ward are launching the new Call of Duty: Ghosts game on November 5, just after Electronic Arts and DICE release Battlefield 4 on October 25. It’s another epic battle between two of the most popular shooter franchises out there.

Activision blew away EA last year when Call of Duty: Black Ops II from Treyarch obliterated Call of Duty Warfighter from EA and Danger Close Games. But the confrontation was much closer the year before when Battlefield 3 took on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Of course, the Call of Duty franchise doesn’t really have any “close” competition, except perhaps for Microsoft’s Halo franchise. Activision has seen its COD games top $1 billion in sales and break records for the last four years. These games have also managed to have long tails thanks to online gameplay that has kept them relevant even after a new COD franchise has launched.

It should be a win-win for gamers this fall with these two shooters.

The next gen shooter Im truly anticipating is Killzone: Shadow Fall

You pick the worst series of the three...why?

I have...critics, reviews, sales, Industry awards and Battlefield 4's vastly superior trailer to Shadow fall on my side...

I simply ask...why would you be more hyped for Killzone than either of these two franchises? I can somewhat understand Cod as it is milked and a yearly franchise...but battlefield? Had arguably the best shooter last gen - Bad company 2 and has a track record for nothing but high quality - since it was made a long time ago. Whereas Killzone has a pretty average track record with Killzone 2 being the high point.

Or us it because it's exclusive? Please don't tell me it's because it's exclusive...

The sci fi theme maybe? I do like the Sci fi theme.

Me too and Battlefield can't compare to Planetside 2. I hope that comes to PS4 for launch!

coolmast3r1968d ago

Good choice mate. At least it's better then another Children Online Daycare game.

zeddy1968d ago

killzone 3 was a disappointment especially on the multiplayer side. killzone 2 was insanely fun and was hoping for more of the same but no.

"Activision blew away EA last year when Call of Duty: Black Ops II from Treyarch obliterated Call of Duty Warfighter from EA and Danger Close Games."

-Since when did EA make Call of Duty Warfighter... LoL

How do you get Copy and Paste wrong... LMAO.. it's correct in the actual article but whoever copy and paste it, somehow changed it to Call of Duty instead of Medal of Honor in the above preview..

Just shows that all the people who approved this, didn't even read it....

It won't be a cross gen FPS, as impressed as I was by Dice and BF4 I'm not big on buying cross gen ports of last gen games. I'll stick with the game that's built ground up. So Killzone:SF... :)

And Battlefield shoots and kills Call of Duty........As Battlefield walks away a Ghost rises and......

LOl, anyway I don't really care who wins (I don't own stocks in Evil Assholes and Craptovision) but I think I am more likely to buy Battlefield 4 than COD: Ghosts-Just my personal preference.

arbitor3651968d ago (Edited 1968d ago )

at least we know that dice wont use the same engine for the entire generation. BF5 will probably look significantly better than BF4. while next COD after ghosts.... yeah... probably not.

Kyosuke_Sanada1968d ago

So..........just like this generation? Maybe if there was a third and fourth competitor, it would be interesting.....
