MWEB GameZone writer, Zaid Kriel, takes a look at how the Call of Duty franchise is for the first time in its history, starting to decline in sales and appeal, with Call of Duty: Ghosts being the culprit.
For the first time in a long time, a new Call of Duty game is doing worse in terms of sales compared to an old Call of Duty game. Which isn't necessarily a sign of impending doom. After all, it would have been unrealistic to expect the series to continually outpace itself. In fact, the franchise's publisher was expecting an initial decline, pointing the finger at the release of the Xbox One and PlayStation. But the expectation was that, once the next-gen consoles were out in the wild, the sales dip would have self-corrected. That hasn't been the case.
