Death of Call of Duty

Activision sure put out a lot of Call of Duty titles. Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops and the soon to be released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Also included are the spin offs The Finest Hour and Big Red One. Call of Duty has come a long way since its first release in 2003 to the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 3 scheduled to release this year. Call of Duty is a popular franchise and to this day it still is, but each game seems to get worse than the last.

"Call of Duty is dying and dying very fast for that matter."

MW2 sold more units than COD4
Black Ops sold more units than MW2.
MW3 pre-orders are occurring FOUR times faster than Black Ops

Where do you get that COD is "dying very fast"?

"Activision is losing most of its fans to EA’s newest entry to the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield 3."

Okay, now your not even trying. Wheres ur evidence for this statement???

Dlacy13g2611d ago

Totally agree. Facts...where are the facts? Sales are on the up tick... is this guy just basing the opinion off a forum thread of COD hate?

StanLee2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

Last year "journalists" and "anlysist" were saying the same thing. That the franchise was on a downturn and Modern Warfare 2 was its peak. No one expected Black Ops to out sell Modern Warfare 2 and certainly not by as much as it did. The fact is, the Call of Duty brand is stronger than ever. It's funny, I come on and I see the negativity directed at the Call of Duty franchise but most of my friends on XBox Live, co-workers and just people I've had conversations with in Gamestop are generally excited about the game and they're the majority that buy these games every year. I was in Gamestop in Park Slope today on 7th Avenue picking up Dirt 3 and there were so many people in there excited about a mediocre trailer. It's crazy. I played Modern Warfare 2 this evening and there were over 100,000 players in the multiplayer playlist. Over 280,000 in the Black Ops multiplayer playlist.

If bf3 outsells mw3, activision is screwed!!!
But im sure thats not going to happen..

qface642611d ago

the day BF3 outsells MW3 is the day Nigeria becomes a super power

movements2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

From a BF fanboy... Why didn't he/she argue that Battlefield is dying? Hate these reads....

Battlefield 1, Battlefield 2, Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 1940-something... Battlefield 3. But NO, it's only Activision milking franchises... Hate all you want, but Modern Warfare 3 will be the number one game this year. I'll be first in line, like sheep. So shut up.

Edit: And fix it... It's an OPINION PIECE.

Wenis2611d ago

Battlefield 1 was my favorite...oh wait.

"MW2 sold more units than COD4
Black Ops sold more units than MW2.

Well what does that tell you???

It tells you that online frag-and-camp-and-noobtube gameplay has reached the goddamn masses!

It tells you that the mass public love unbalanced weapons, un-dedicated servers, unfinished, patchable gameplay, and online competition that is so sporadic and unfair, that it makes you want to drive your fist through your F'N television screen in it's disparity.

Fox012611d ago

It tells you that it's a fun game and people love it. Not everyone camps on CoD or uses Noobtubes and weapons were pretty balanced in Black Ops.

bozebo2611d ago

People complain about all the noobs in cod. If you are good at fps games and played mw2 it was the most fun ever, 25 kills every game - 5 games in a row. Just keep playing, owning people and being called a cheater until the console red rings. CoD has a great feel on the weapons, they are just too easy to control for anyone with a modicum of fps experience.

I havn't played black ops though, I don't buy the Treyarch ones because they suck ass.

MW3 will probably be 98% exactly the same game as MW2, except they will take out some nice guns and replace them with crap ones. Also they will take out some good maps, replace them with crap maps, and sell one of the good maps they took out bundled with another few crap new ones for like £20.

I wish cod4 was still the newest one. Maby mw3 will be what mw2 should have been, but I doubt it. If the PC dlc isn't free I won't be buying it (and I'll know that about 10 days BEFORE launch when they announce the dlc...).

Plenty of better games out this year, why give a crap about CoD anymore; Withcer 2, Skyrim, BF3, GTA5 (possibly delayed till Q1 2012, shhhh...). And all that hasn't been announced yet from E3.

creamsoda2611d ago

The quality that it used to have e.g COD4 is dieing. There is no effort put into this franchise anymore but dumbass sheep still buy it.

DarkFantasy2610d ago

lol all these BF3 fangirls are making things op it's quite pathetic,call of duty is not even close to dieing its growing,i love both games and i really don't understand the hate for cod! it's a fun game they even go as low to say every one who plays cod is 12 lol i know lots of adult's from there 20's-50's..and iv seen lots of little kids play bfbc2 some kids were even acting out like they would play out side with toy guns and they were yelling at me for not listening to there "commands" it was a good laugh,in fact iv seen some kids that were 10 on bfbc2 just like i have on cod,and why is it so bad there playing the game ? there just trying to have some fun just like me and you when we were there age.

Death of call of duty isnt near thats for sure.

metsgaming2611d ago

unfortunate but true.....

UP2611d ago

It will die out someday. Everything does. Just not now.

andron6662611d ago

It's very popular to hate on CoD these days. Sure the series has it's faults, but it's also the biggest gaming franchise out there right now.

I wish they didn't publish a new game every year. The quality suffers and it will stagnate at some point.

But there sure must be a lot of closet CoD players even if many proclaim to hate the series it just increases in popularity game after game...

THWIP712611d ago

...but this is just retarded. 15 y.o. kids should not be allowed to post on the internet. Period.

MidnytRain2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

15 years old = not smart/mature enough to use the internet? My God, kind sir, but I believe you may be

*Looks away*
*Looks back*


bozebo2611d ago (Edited 2611d ago )

When I was 15 I wasn't getting in anyone's way...

Maby something more like: "Idiots shouldn't be allowed to post"?

But they shouldn't be allowed to breathe either...
