Returning to World War Two, have the developers of the Call of Duty series done enough to save and return the series to its former glory or has too much been broken in terms of fan loyalty over the years. Glyn Investigates
COD is like a Zombie, getting worse all the time yet never dying like it should.
Chronicles is saving it at the moment. This probably will too. The only reason they made the move with Chronicles was to keep Cod players at bay and try to bring guys back that left. I didn't buy IW......but I came back to BO3 for Chronicles.
Call of duty doesn't need saveing. It's the best selling series every year. Intimate warfare is still selling well.
Intimate warfare? Sounds a bit saucy
Lol just saw that
It sold less than Black Ops 3
I don't think a series that had the top selling game of 2016 really needs saving.
Infinite warfare only sold so many copies because of modern warfare coming with the legacy edition
I doubt every single copy sold that shot it to the top was the legacy edition .
It wasn't the top selling game of 2016, it was beaten by three other games and it actually sold less than Black Ops 3 did in 2015!
how does a series that outsells every title each year need saving? lol
For the same reason that fifa needs shaking up as well. People buy it because they are habitual. It gets bought because people want to try it...doesnt mean that it's a great game?. How many copies get traded in within a month after release?
It didn't outsell fallout 4 for months and sold more that year. GTA V dominated cod. Those are just 2 that I can think of off the top of my head.
Depending on what's in the multiplayer, it could give the series a bump, but I seriously think the yearly releases have burned out a lot of the hardcore fans.
CoD doesn't need saving; it just needs Activision to realize that if they have 3 different teams working on it, then there's no reason for all 3 to be making the same exact game. Have them work in different eras, experiment a little bit, and just try things that are new to the franchise. Bring back stuff like actual vehicles, etc.
That would be a great plan. Would give plenty of variety to the series
This would actually be an amazing idea
Can it save the series from What? Being the best selling game of 2016/2017?
You know that even though it was the best selling game there was a massive amount of people that weren't particular happy with the way the series went right.
Don't know wether CoD needs saving or not but WW2 will be the first CoD I will buy in 4 years. Boots on the ground, hopefully no over the top kill streaks and hopefully a good campaign
Looking at the pc sales you can see that it's fallen out of favor with core gamers, however maybe this game can turn it around. Time will tell.
It never needed saving you had young millennials buying all the content.
The series has always done well regardless of the fact they have lost many fans over the years. Im just happy they took off those dam jetpacks, Worst thing they have done to the series. Im excited for WW2 setting tho I'll be having fun with this one
