Maybe the franchise is just too ingrained in popular culture for it to ever completely disappear. And really, when you think about it, is that such a bad thing?
You mean like Guitar Hero?
hell YEAH, it can disappear.. as soon as the CoD fanboy review sites like IGN, etc hyping it to hell and aback stop sucking on it like a $2 tramp for views and biased reviews.. ever since that site gave that COPY AND PASTE MONSTROSITY MW3 a high review score, we all knew their agenda as far as CoD goes.. so whenever they decide to stop hype it beyond belief (only for folks to be disappointed as hell later: see Ghosts), then it will go away. But until it stops getting that biased CoD fanboy love from IGN, etc, it aint going nowhere.
Blackk ops was the last good COD, i remember it clearly, i click on a MW2 montage video and didn't question it until i re-read it and it said MW3. Black ops 2 was ok but weapons were too imbalanced for me and i knew ghost would be 4/10 trash. Last chance Activision.
As unpopular as COD is becoming, it still has a faithful fan base that makes it still one of the highest selling games on the market.
* Different Dev Team * Their First Main COD Game as a team * Full 3 year Development cycle. * Next Gen ONLY ( for this studio ) * Biggest change to COD since going from COD3 to COD4:Modern Warfare ( Exo skeleton ) I think Sledge has added pressure to really make a quality game more than IW or Trey, because it's their first and they will be under a microscope with this game. * They haven't developed a successful COD game yet, but they also haven't been responsible for some of the things that made people not like COD anymore. * Go into COD:AW with an open mind.
Lol if they stopped making it
With how much money it reels in.. not a chance. The fan base is too wide; people will buy Call of Duty just for namesake.
And that's the problem. People buy it for namesake. Were on Cod 4.11 and the games get worse each game. If we stop buying Activision will have to step up their game or let it die like Guitar Hero or Tony Hawk series. All series fade away at some point its only a matter of time and Cod is past it's expiration date.
Nope... Its just the series of the times.. Cod was laughed at when it first came out.. Its the twitch shooter everyone plays.. And people only buy it because they know everyone else will.. It'll disappear into memory once a true contender comes out.. Titanfall was close... It lacked content and being multiplatform.. But its something along those lines that will come out and everyone will jump on that.. Nothing lasted forever.. Quake, UT, CS etc.. All fell from popularity eventually..
Many people don't like sci-fi. I'm excited about AW but I have friend who say it all looks a bit Haloy
"Cod was laughed at when it first came out" WAIT WHAT!!!the original COD was an epic world war 2 shooter and no one was laughing at it. Granted the game has gone down hill since Cod 4 but advanced warfare is looking promising
I never said it wasnt fun.. But the bf and cs crowd wanted nothing to do with it.. Dod was better.
COD Is like FIFA we may compete atainst them but we never kill them off unless the company does so.
It will never disappear but as Ghosts proved, it runs the very real possibility of becoming irrelevant to the less dedicated Call of Duty players which would eat a good chunk of the sales. Regardless, it will still be a cash cow but as other games evolve, Kotick and co shouldn't get too comfy at the top.
Well, Tony Hawks...
Can Call of Duty Disappear? Yes, Call of Duty... Ghosts! *Bad Dum Tsk*
If they continue to stay close to the "Call of Duty formula", it won't disappear, it might not sell nearly as much, but its core fan base is big enough to keep it alive. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but Call of Duty's multiplayer is quite addictive. It's fast, exciting and the next reward is pretty much always at hand's reach; it's a simple formula, yet as we've seen last-gen, it's not easy to replicate. There's also something to be said about the campaigns, as they are short, but action packed. I for one, usually enjoy them, of course they won't rival those from Uncharted, TLOU, Gears or Halo, but they don't have to. They basically are the game equivalent of a Michael Bay movie; they're not going to win any awards, but they are entertaining if you don't take them too seriously.
CoD won't disappear anytime soon. When you have millions of sheeple who will pre-order the game the moment it gets announced, there's no disappearing act on the horizon in sight.
It can in time, not until something takes it place that's for sure, with the trust EA has lost with BF,.. If Sony or MS was smart they would make a 1st party game that would kill COD n talk bout selling systems, just think bout how many systems would sell if Sony or MS would have bought COD rights yrs ago!!!!! OMG it would be insane... They are no game to match COD right now....
We can all hope it vanishes up its own ass.....but the majority of gamers are mindless run n gun drones that lap this crap up year after year......so no its not going anywhere unfortunataly.
They already made their Billions; it's over, they won! Brought to you by the sheeple called casuals, or in other words, those who only buy what's popular!
I enjoy Call of Duty a bunch!
I for one enjoy the series, been a supporter for many years, and can the series really disappear? Maybe the series will stop eventually, but it's been engrained in every other modern FPS, so from a cultural stand point, I don't think so.
