Sean Lama at GamingTrend.com discusses Activision's plan to build their next billion dollar franchise.
Where Call of Duty failed? Ha I would not even consider myself a fan of Call of Duty,but regardless of who hates it it still sells. Them having Destiny and Call of Duty release same year reaches them out to 2 vastly different markets. On last gen and current gen consoles for Destiny and Call of Duty all consoles with new developers.
I think they already ruined Destiny by adding the throwing knife into the game
So does Activision owns this ip ?
Bungie has said that they own the Destiny IP and merely Activision is the distributor and nothing more. Bungie didn't want a repeat of what they went through with Microsoft's tedious demands with Halo. I'm not bashing Microsoft but we all know that a parent company can suffocate developers sometimes. I love the Halo series and I'm anxious for Destiny for my PS4. I play Ghosts on Xbox One and it will show only 7,000 online and 194 in a Ground War playlist. Those are insanely small numbers compared to the previous installments. And it's a fact that Ghosts didn't sell as well compared to the other installments. Anyone remember when Ghosts challenged to break the GTA 5 first week sales but didn't?
How many are playing Ghosts on the 360?
Call of Duty failed ? still sold shit tons and all the crap dlc are plastered all over psn and xbl .. They haven't failed yet.
In terms of of narrative I'd say they are failing pretty hard. Hell, there's even a crashing helicopter in the trailer. They are running out of ideas, clearly.
I've never played a single COD multiplayer. I know I'm in the extreme minority. I do have quite a few buddies who play and I enjoyed spectating. I'd have to agree with the article that COD has peaked and maybe Destiny is really Activision's next bet.
I hope Activision doesn't "plan" for anything. Stay the **** away from Bungie and let them do their thing, please.
Yeah CoD hasn't failed but it's certainly losing it's appeal. It would be interesting to see what sort of age's group's play the game most, i would think it was mainly kid's at this point.
I was interested in Destiny until I learned that it was going to be sold at 69,99 here in Canada. Even in digital form. Sucks because the game looks fine, but this price is not justified. I can't stand behind that.
