Gm3r revisits an editorial on why Activision should slow down with Call of Duty and return to innovation for future editions.
it's only 1 game every year its just 2 devs makeing them so it seems like its every 9 months but fans are the series are happy so leave them and leave activision keep pumping out the cod maybe they will make one that u like Geez
What we really need is for Treyarch & Infinity Ward to work together on ONE Call of Duty game every year.
I got to say I would prefer a 2 year break between the COD series so they can at least spend a bit more time thinking the game through rather than rushing it for Christmas sales.
Totally agree. It takes them 3 - 5 months to fix the bugs after release so they may as well wait the extra 12 months and work them out and polish the game better.
It may sound wierd but they do have 1.5 to 2 years on development of the game, they can do this because as soon as IW or Treyarch have released a game the other development team is already 1 year in of development in their CoD game. So it is technically a production line, IMO 2 years is needed with both development teams working together to get anywhere decent CoD game, so there is a 2 year gap between each CoD.
There's no such thing as innovation to Activision, as long as there's a quick cash grab idea involved.
Of course they should, but why would they! They make millions of dollars from the yearly tripe that is COD!It doesn't make any financial sense to stop doing the factory line production.
I wish they would stick to a game for 3+ years and get back to what COD did best; innovate shooters. COD 1-4, some of the best shooters I've ever played. MW2 and Black Ops are a sad indication that the COD has become nothing but a cash-crop franchise. Rather than dedicate time to maturing the franchise, Activision would rather exploit COD for everything it's worth and pump out yearly overpriced bullshit. This saves them money because they don't have to dedicate time to maintenance for the game. Why fix this COD when another is going to drop in a year. They absolutely rape people on DLC also. COD maps are nothing but small chunks over the campaign environments boxed in to make a map. What's funny is that the DLC is exactly the same. Just more campaign crap broke down into maps. Don't you just love paying for the same content twice? Until gamers stop herding to these bullshit games, gaming is going to continue to take a turn for the worst.
