Would a Subscription Based Call of Duty Benefit the Series?

Call of Duty may be getting stale, but Josh Miller looks to see if a subscription approach could possibly solve the problem.

HD version of CoD 4 = fixed.

Meh, just make the game every 2-3 years and give exclusive rights to Treyarch.

I hate IW's style, you die way to quickly. That, and the maps are huge and bland and boring. 3arc's maps have a lot more color and things are there for a reason. With IW, things are just there to be there.

''you die way to quickly''

Oh my you don't even know how much I agree on that. I remember on MW3 multiplayer basically 1 shot and your're dead or when you're clearly shooting somebody but your're ending up being killed and on the killcam it's not even showing you shooting. I got so angry to the point that the game disc ended up in half :). Generally I like Treyarch's COD way more. Blops 1 still being best for me.

battlefield has its own problems. bought the game at launch and i still have not been able to join a match with more than 20 players on the ps4. im not alone and the game is crashing accross all platforms.

Battlefield 4 has major problems and horrible design flaws too! They don't even have a party system in BF4. As much as I criticize COD, they do their online better than any other game company. It is a simple design that gets your buddies on the same team within seconds.

BF4 requires one person to join a server. Second, all of your friends must join the same server. Third, you must switch sides if half end up on the other team. Fourth, those that make it on a team, you must deal with trying to join a squad together. I can't believe how they ditched the pregame party system; horrible!

360 only supports 24 players. all the ps4 matches that ive joined successfully are 20 player matches in small maps. they are fun but i bought the game for 64 player matches. if the xbox one has the same problems, dont expect much success from battlefield either. just btw i get 30mbps through the ps4 ethernet port where killzone and ghosts run well. it seems next gen for battlefield isnt that much better than current gen for waiting for a fix.

Give Activision the chance of a subscription based CoD would end in being Pay 2 Play.They already proved this by adding the Peace Maker in DLC which ended up being the most solid gun on Blops2.

They would sell the best weapons for $100 day 1 and let the rest suffer for not being stupid enough to pay it.

CoD is already kind of subscription based with having to hand over money every 3 months for add-ons.Buying the game then actually having to pay monthly would put me off unless there was at least 3 new maps a month and gameplay changes.

0.0 if it were to i will have to find a new FPS to enjoy

Themba761797d ago

i said this years ago. they make so many cod's that they might as well make it subscription based like wow and just release updates.

A hiatus of CoD would be a benefit to the series.
