Activision is preparing to reveal details behind the latest entry from the Call of Duty franchise and Adnan Riaz explores whether or not the series will recover in 2014.
recover? Ghosts is the best selling game on PS4 and XB1, and would have sold as well as previous CODs on last gen if not for the new consoles.
@aquamala "Ghosts is the best selling game on PS4 and XB1" Yea because it's the only CoD game on next gen consoles. It's not like the ones who only want to play a Call of Duty game has any other choice. When Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare comes out I doubt anyone will touch Ghost again because it plain out sucks and is the worst Call of Duty game ever imo.
Cod is here to stay it just seems very weird that its so popular when its the most scrutinized game. People buy it and hate on the short easy campaign and hate on the noob friendly multiplayer but still buy it twice a year. It will have aim assist, kill streak perks and even more futuristic lame perks that will cater to the casual crowd and it will sell millions as usual across all platforms.
Doubtful but I won't lie saying the trailer caught my eye. Then I remembered the same no gameplay reveal for the past 5 years
The series isn't what it used to be. And most of the Call of Duty community seems to live up to stigma of how the general public views gamers: obnoxious, under aged and crude. I'm not saying all FPS are devoid of this but the Call of Duty online community is more guilty than most. As for Advanced Warfare, I really thought it was a Black Ops 3 trailer until the title card at the end. Will I buy it as a day one? I don't know. Ghosts really let me and other gamers down which is why it didn't sell as well as the previous installments overall. The longer a product is out on the market, the more people will drop away from that product overtime. It's basic marketing. The question is, how do they attract the core market back to a franchise that treats their consumer as if we were lemmings.
No It will be the same. Hype hype hype, disappointment. Regret. Repeat and rinse.
any game series can i didn't buy blacks op 2 and owned ghost for 2 weeks. This cod has been in development for 3 years i think its gonna be a refresh.
imo I will not make a verdict at this early stage. I'll just wait for the reviews, sales and consumer feedback when this game comes out.
Haven't played COD in years but I might give this a try.
