Will Advanced Warfare Steal Away Some Of Destiny's Hype?

With the multiplayer reveal for the new Call of Duty on the immediate horizon, it seems like the CoD hype train might finally start to get rolling.

I doubt it. What Destiny has going for it is that it's a new IP. The hype between the COD titles have dwindled down over the years.

And there are 2 months between both releases... what a stupid article.

Agreed, Destiny will be out 2 months prior. Once CoD comes out all us Destiny players are going to be switching over to the Master Chief Collection anyways. Should be an article about Halo Rereleases stealing CoD's thunder.

At the moment, the Destiny PRe-orders are much higher than COD:AW pre-orders. However we all know that pre-order numbers are not a true reflection until the week before a game releases, and COD:AW doesn't release until November.

However, going by the Beta numbers, Destiny will have a record breaking release for a new IP (it will beat Watchdogs). The question is, will COD:AW have a record breaking release? IT will be big, but I doubt it will be as big as previous games in the series.

I don't think it'll break any records. Especially since a lot of people don't trust Infinity Ward after Ghosts. Especially the PC community that got shafted by the god awful port.

Infinity Ward isn't developing Advanced Warfare.

Exactly! The hype have dropped off themselves, by tarnishing their own franchise with yearly releases. In my store preorders of this game have been pretty low considering how late we are and where we're at my store should already have double what we have now. It's probably the lowest preorders we've seen for a COD games in the last 6 years.

Destiny however is right on track for us to have our numbers up there with previous COD games. The numbers we're seeing right now for Destiny preorders is exactly where COD should be as well.

Also like ZodTheRipper said it's out a whole 2 months before COD and should not be affected a lot by COD. That's probably why Activision set up the release to be September. They don't want COD preorders to mess with their huge Destiny release and vice versa.

I'll probably like Advanced Warfare better because the campaign and multiplayer is 60fps and looks to innovate without changing the formula to much. Also the story looks great so far.

Destiny multiplayer was lackluster to me and being 30fps didn't help. Don't get me wrong Destiny seems like a good game but not amazing like it's made out to be. It's just over hyped IMO.

DeadlyOreo1200d ago

I have to slightly agree here. I think I'm in the minority who actually is more excited for Advanced Warfare than Destiny. I'll pick both up, but Advanced Warfare looks a whole lot better than previous entries in the series.

bennissimo1200d ago

You're not alone. I played the Destiny beta enough to get bored with it and reverse my pre-order. COD will return to my collection, because AW CAN'T be as bad as Ghosts was. It just CAN'T.

mcarsehat1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

I'm also like that. I've never been a fan of Halo or Borderlands so making a Halo/Borderlands style Space-Cod isn't going to tickle my fancy, i tried the Beta once and saw exactly what the game would be like almost EVERY time i play it.

I have always been into Call of Duty but hated Ghosts, i hated it's rushed campaign and Pro-Gamer nature but had Titanfall for only a week because of it's casual nature. Just give me a Cod game with a great campaign and i'll go on MP when i want.

objdadon1200d ago

From what I've seen they changed the formula a hell of a lot! We shall see!

Only if destiny is too short/quick to complete. I question the replayability of destiny and it's pvp. I just have this feeling that everyone is going to buy destiny, finish in a weekend and that is it. Just doesn't seem to be enough to explore in the worlds. Put my fears to rest bungie! I believe that wizards do come from the moon!

Cryptcuzz1200d ago

I am going to be getting both Destiny and CoD: Advance Warfare, so this is what I don't get from your comment.

Even if we were to consider that to do everything there is to do in Destiny would take up the same amount of time as in the next CoD game (I doubt this, a big part of the game is collecting the rare, legendary and exotic equipment, which will take a lot of time and commitment) then everyone would be then focusing on the PVP side of the game after.

That is what almost everyone does with CoD from the get go. They go on and play PVP multi-player and rarely cares for the campaign (though the next one could be different with Kevin Spacey)

So if we were to consider that PVP for both Destiny and the next CoD would both have long replayability for a lot of people and the fact that Destiny is going to be getting constant updates with new content like missions. It is a sure bet that Destiny will have more replayability than the next CoD game for a lot of people.

Short answer?! NO just no....

Godz Kastro1200d ago

I think the question is will Destiny steal some of COD's light. As much as people scoff at COD it is a beast among many hardcore gamers and casuals alike.
