2014 could be another down year for Call of Duty. Research firm Sterne Agee is projecting Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to sell millions of copies less than 2013 release Call of Duty: Ghosts.
From the preorders I will agree, and I'm guessing it will sell less then destiny
Alot of the gamers that acquire a copy of COD are younger gamers who don't preorder. I still think COD will be the best selling game this year, due to Destiny losing steam due to its reception. Edit: Advance Warfare will likely not get sales anywhere near MW1-3, World at War or Black Ops 1/2.
ill be getting it next year for Zombies... i skipped the last 2 and ill be skipping this one
That's because the casual gamers have caught on that the series is stalling. However the hardcore crowd knows that the series has been going down since MW2-Ghosts, and judging previews Advance Warfare looks to be good addition to the series. Advance Warfare should be a more critical success than ghosts.
Many will be gunshy because of Ghosts. But I think AW does stand a chance as far as reinvigorating the brand. The campaign looks great, hopefully the MP won't be the 3-ringed circle that was Ghosts.
It'll sell better once word of mouth proves that this is a far, far better game than Ghosts. But its initial sales figures will likely be lower.
It'll sell millions more than Destiny. We're still in a console transitions so people won't have enough money to buy as many games. Some may choose GTA V over COD this holiday.
Lol well yeah after the way Call of duty ghost flat out sucked asss i would not put it past people not to buy the next one. But from what i been reading and videos i have watched. This call of duty seems to be doing somthing right to reel me back in.
I doubt it a lot of people have got or are getting next gen consoles and want to buy games for them and this is going to be one of the few games out this holiday season.
Why are we not surprised? [JK] well I am guessing to buy this game only because of my favorite and award winning actor "Kevin Spacey" honestly, I am not into futuristic warfare sort but even though the game is getting old in terms of repetitions of in game features, i dont see COD fans actually wanting to leave playing COD games anytime soon.
I'm actually glad, the call of duty franchise unfortunately became stagnant years ago and a lot of people brought based on the name. I would love to see a true gritty FPS set back in ww2. I think it is time to go back to that period and do a truly honest and dark shooter.
Because of the name? Or because they really dont hate it as much as some want to make out.
Please don't listen to Cheese, why do they not make any of today's FPS games in ww2??? No one want to play that far back!!! That's why the sniper games don't do as good as it could cause they are set back in them day!!!! Bottom line Sux
You never know brother, that could be the very game that Treyarch is working on. I will sit this one out, as I did the previous release. I am looking forward to seeing whatever Treyarch are working on.
Well, "World at War 2" did get trademarked not too long ago, so you never know...
I think it will out sell Ghost.
Hell no it will sell million no matter what, ps4 pushing around 12 mil n X1 pushing around 7'or 8 million systems sold so far, not counting the 360 n ps3... Add all 4 systems together how can this bone head say it won't sell as many copies??? Hell this time around is the best chance for the next ten years to break sell records.....
Another thing to keep in mind is that they'll obviously be advertising the Ps4/Xbox1 version. So that's the version that people will see...Even people that only own a last gen system. They'll see the flashy new graphics and rush out to get it because it looks like a major step-up.
No doubt this game will sell. I also have no doubt in my mind that it will outsell Ghosts. I didn't buy that game and was "thinking" about this one. What I'd like even more is a new Rainbow 6 game
Of course...current gen only.
am I alone when I say that ghost was very hazy and very grainy. I could not see clearly the enemy compared to cod blk ops2. when ever someone acquire you first,they kill you quick. there was no get back like in cod blk ops. Cod blk ops you could get hit once and turn around and fight back.
As long as I can still play against people online, the game is supported, then I don't care how much it sells.
I got tired of Call of Duty. Sure each year it is a different campaign, different guns, maps, and even some different game modes, but thats it, the gameplay feels the same despite the new things in each game they come out with. I wasn't going to get Ghosts, but somebody got it for me, and to be honest I only played a few matches of Extinction online with my brother. Haven't done the story, haven't played multiplayer, just didn't look very appealing to me. Probably won't get Advanced Warfare, at least not right away. Maybe I will play will play Ghosts when Advanced Warfare comes out, then wait a year to get the new Call of Duty games from now on.
i hope so. Cant wait for CoD to die
There will be considerable buzz for this one I think going by the recent trailer I saw of it. I may even get this particular version myself which is something I would not have entertained before. Unlikely to sell poorly I think
In other news PIGS COULD FLY. Stupid article is stupid
No kidding captain obvious. It's not coming out on 360 or PS3.... like... duhh...
Well hopefully the sales will be considerably lower, forcing Activision to change the formula up.
