They need to give it a break a longer cycle activision has many great IPs under there belt yet never use them but push COD Series each year.

The 20+ million people that buy it every year say no.

The 20M+ that buy it every year are eventually going to stop buying it when they start getting worse and worse due to not being developed longer.
A AAA game like this should take at least a couple of years to complete, year and a half at the soonest, if they want to do a lot of research into how they can introduce new and significant improvements to the formula to keep it interesting.

New guns every time will only work for so long, and a super suit for soldiers isn't exactly untrod territory for shooters.XD

I was surprised when i saw CoD AW only had 3 pistols !!!
Didnt all others have 5 and up?

Umm... isnt the cycle two yrs now? I thought there were 3 devs working on cod games. Personally I kinda like AW. However I will never buy another cod till it releases with dedicated servers.

They would never consider parting with one of their three golden geese. (Skylanders/Destiny)

Obviously because Activision doesn't love money /s

Why? It's still a major bread winner for the company, there's still a massive audience who comes back for it every year, and now that they have three companies working on the company (two of which have proven they know what they are doing) with long dev cycles, we can only assume more quality releases going forward.
I'd be happy for Activision to roll out a big new IP, but why try to replace something that is still doing them very well?
