Will Call of Duty’s audience split into two multiplayer factions?

GamesBeat's Dean Takahashi writes about the different multiplayer philosophies between Call of Duty: Ghosts from Infinity Ward and Call of Duty: Black Ops II from Treyarch. Is the sibling rivalry among studios getting bigger? (Call of Duty, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

There is definitely not that bug of a difference to cause a split. If they were totally separate games I could see it, but come on this COD we're talking about here. Any change beyond a minor tweak is considered revolutionary

There's always been a bit of a split between the last two in the series, as many people prefer one versus the other. However I imagine any significant split will be with Ghost, as people will be split between current versus next gen versions.

What could split their fanbase is :

Battlefield 4, TitanFall, Killzone, will all compete with the COD crowd. There are others too but these will draw some fans away from the COD base.

Just playing BF3 for first time last month has me wanting BF4 more than I've wanted any COD game. I still like COD, but every game I buy, I play it less and less.

There will be 2 factions.

1) COD players
2) BF4 players that left COD

And Titanfall players that have left both of those games.

I don't see how people can even bother buying another CoD. I am watching gameplay videos, and if I didn't know any better, I would not be able to tell which CoD it is. Same crap, slightly different name...

Lmao so true,in fact I saw a comparison video between black ops a mw3 and I literally could not tell the difference.

That applies to every shooter, though.

Battlefield games always look the same as the last one. Halo games always look the same as the last one.

Heck, you could apply that same argument to any game in any franchise in any genre. Singling out COD alone for it is pretty redundant, all things considered.

Except for when you go back to try and play it again. Try playing bo1 now that you've gotten used to bo2. The graphics are a lot choppier and not as smooth.

While I completely agree it just looked like more cod, I read that the gameplay footage was all from 360 version. And look I preordered bf4 I'm not a cod defender. But I'm curious to see next gen footage. I'm curious if the cloud on ps4 and x1 means dedicated servers. Look I'm more excited for bf4, killzone sf, and titanfall. But I'm curious how it will perform on next gen.

Honestly it looks like Ghosts borrowed a bunch from black ops 2 like the pick 10...which was a big innovation. The drones are back too. It actually made me wonder if Activision would give Treyarch...the new big brothers...the Modern Warfare moniker to work with. It may be the next truely next gen CoD. They have basically worked on a bunch of different games from WaW to black ops 2. It isn't crazy and it could work.

Hmmmm I dent really like blops 2 and hated that target finder scope thing, that thing was a joke and never understood why they would put it in the game. S&D is pretty much the only game mode I play but for some reason which I can't quite put my finger on "I didn't really like it in blops 2".

Me personally thought ghosts looked like MW4 if you like which I think isn't a bad thing in my opinion but like the auther of the article said the 2 company's developing theses title do seem to divide opinion on which is best.
