Doug Creutz has commented on the potential impact Destiny and Titan Fall will have on the sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts and the future releases of the Call of Duty franchise.
And Battlefield and Battlefront. They need to step their game up in a major way now, no more free passes and no more excuses. Go big or go home!
I'm gonna call them on their BS. You had years when there was a new Halo and/or a new Battlefield or Gears or War and that never impacted sales before. Unless of course, you want to blame it all on Killzone Shadow Fall, a game not even coming on current gen and coming to next-gen consoles with a few million units sold in it's first year. COD is stale.
I think the biggest determent to COD right now is IW, and how AB keeps bouncing it back and forth between devs. If they want to keep it going strong they should pool resources and do it bi-yearly, instead of splitting the fan base between developers. ...Or better yet dump all of it into Destiny, because damn that looks cool.
I feel they should just let Treyarch make the best possible game they can on a new engine for about 3 years, and if that doesn't work, then I dunno...
future sales of call of duty series? absolutely. but come on guys. destiny and titan fall arent really on the average gamers mind right now simply because theyre not out yet. im not saying people dont think ahead but the masses dont really consider so far ahead into the future when buying a cod game.
Titanfall is a system seller. COD and BF4 aren't.
Titanfall is no system seller.
It's one of the big reasons I'm buying one.
destiny is a whole different game but I expect titanfall to take some cod sales, BF4 too
Agree. Destiny will no doubt lure some gamers away from playing (but not necessarily buying) COD because its fresh, looks damned exciting and does things differently. Bungie is setting a precedent, giving us a new way to play online shooters by combining it with social aspects (dare i say, another definition of true next-gen?) But those seeking their DM/TDM (competitive) fix wont find it in Destiny. Titanfall, maybe. However, i still think COD has many (good?) years/sequels left in it.
I think the age of the modern military shooter is drawing to a close and the age of the sci fi shooter is beginning.
The age of Scifi shooter was already here! Quake, Unreal, Duke Nukem, Tribes, Turok, Halo, Half Life, and so much more had it going for a while before Call of Duty. Modern military shooters will always be around, as much as military films in Hollywood(Its a fact that Hollywood has to have a military film every year). This will be an end of an era for Call of Duty dominating. The return of scifi greatness will dethrone Call of Duty. Between this year and years from now, if Call of Duty remains the same as it is now, it will die badly. This will be due to next gen greatness where everybody will expect more from this systems than the same old game.
Titan fall is not going to impact much on COD sales because it is not on PS3 and PS4 like COD. Destiny yes.
