Call of Duty: Has The Franchise Peaked?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is likely to set a new sales record yet again for Activision - although as of this writing we don't have the official first-day tally.

They've been surprising me every year. I don't know what to expect at this point.

He's being sarcastic

Not being sarcastic. I'm not talking about game quality, but the sales of the game getting higher every year has truly surprised me.

cpayne932414d ago

That's definitely what keeps suprising me. I was actually wondering if that's what you meant.

Series has hit it's peak a LONG time ago. The drones just keep flocking to it because they are either brain washed zombies or people who keep buying it because they hope it has finally changed since the last iteration. (which is hasn't)

nothing but brain dead zombies continue to buy this gargbage, rinse and repeast, rehashed franchise... it his its peak YEARS AGO with MW1... hell, Activision needs to start releasing these every 6 months... why not? the same people would stand in line 3 hrs before midnight for that as well... they obviously don't mind low quality, rehashed material... think about it Activision ... think about it...

I think it peaked with Black Ops and will decline from here on out. Yes, I know sales say otherwise. But the general "mood" of the online community is not one of being pleased with the new product they have been playing for the last day or so like it was with Black Ops.

I liked black ops, but i don't think it was really the peak of the series to me it is cod 4, the rest after that has relied on the things set in cod 4, granted they are all good games though

I honestly don't know what else they can do to it without improving the engine. But even if it brings nothing new to the table COD peeps will keep buying it, its become basically the facebook of games.
