Can Call of Duty Remain Relevant?

As Titanfall continues to be the most talked about upcoming shooter, where does the hype train leave Call of Duty? Can this now-dominant franchise remain relevant in the transition to the next generation? Gamers Association editor Jay Curtis isn't so sure. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Culture)

it will not be nearly as big with battlefield having 64 players and 60fps on consoles.

Call of Duty will remain relevant long as its easy to pick up and play

Its not going anywhere soon.

But nothing lasts forever. Not even Call Of Duty.

If titanfall can offer an even more simple to pick up and play game then yes CoD might lose relevance but if Titanfall is just another good MP game with mechs than no it will retain its spot.

I think this year we will see a significant fall in COD sale. It will still sell a lot, but not like it usually does. Activision is already blaming low pre-orders on next gen console.

Games like Titanfall, Destiny, BF4, Dice's Battlefront will crush COD, unless Activision reinvents the game which will not happen anyway :P

Those are all separate games... unless they're all owned by EA. And umm buddy if you are going by sides then it'd be Titanfall and BF4 vs Destiny and COD (they're both published by Activision). But Battlefront is a huge wildcard but I don't know if my love for Star Wars is enough to overcome my loathe for Disney

dosent matter... we aren't trying to kill off activision.. its COD that needs to die a fast death

Call of Duty is super fun and I think as long as people make the games there will be millions on millions of people buying it.
thelaughingwiseman  +   568d ago
They know how to sell and how to improve the game to make it sell more. It has a huge fan base and the fact that it keeps pumping out games like it's nobodies business, then they are going to keep getting followers. It is a well oiled machine. The best people can do is just buy games they like, if that includes COD, then so be it. I'm buying games I enjoy, not worrying about the sales of games I won't buy. Respect COD for what it has accomplished, but I can't reward them by buying their games

I would say no, if I had more faith in the people buying it year after year.

Theres room for all FPS shooters.
They really just need to release them in different months.
sucks when every good FPS arrives between the same 2 months.

I will be playing Ghosts day 1 on my PS4 with friends.
I do not expect a GOTY contender, I just hope it delivers hours of entertainment and laughter with friends.

I think it will still be a big game every year, but maybe not the biggest anymore.
