Christopher Dring talks to Call of Duty’s European boss about bettering Modern Warfare 2.
MCV: Some analysts have suggested that because of the increased competition this Christmas, Black Ops won’t hit the levels Modern Warfare 2 reached. Do you agree? Did Call of Duty peak last year?
MS: Our mission is to continue to grow the franchise and we don’t see a peak at all. I think the resources we have invested in Black Ops in the development of the game and the marketing campaign are the highest ever for Activision. I’m not saying it is going to be easy because it’s never easy to beat a record, but the ambition is higher for many reasons. Firstly, Black Ops will benefit from a bigger PS3 and Xbox 360 installed base.
