"Activision Publishing boss says Black Ops II went through the same bad reaction at its reveal."
He's right. It will sell at least 9 million.
For most games that would be solid figure but for COD that would be petty damn bad, pretty sure Blops 3 sold like 22m copies.
It is in that ballpark right now. Infinite Warfare will move 15 million at a minimum. Many other CoD titles have had no problem moving 20 million plus.
How much Call Of Duty makes compared with Battlefield will as usual make Dice cry
Which is why they make little to no effort while developing the game. Cause they know fools i mean people are gonna buy it. All they do is copy and past from their previous titles update their engine a tad bit package and sell. Hell they could even package a giant turd and name it Call Of Duty:Beyond Infinity and people will still buy it. Its sad quite frankly that people are less vocal about this type of bullshit. To conform with the crap title they are buying. Very sad indeed.
Right, they make the most money by far and still dont have dedicated servers. More proof that consumers are uninformed morons. Bend over you morons, cod is coming.
Key difference though is that fans had confidence in Treyarch after the original Black Ops.
Because Treyarch are the only COD devastated still making good COD games?
They've never made a good COD.
TBH nothing's changed, Dice reveals a graphically impressive trailer with 2 seconds of gameplay while COD shows impressive campaign footage but at least with COD the trailer has scenes form the actual game. Remember Star Wars? I hope people can lower their expectations for both games. COD will still sell better and offer more of your money's worth like usual but that's almost certain since it's the only way to get COD4. Though I'm glad both are taking huge risks with their settings this year.
yeah after battleflop and battlefail 4 im done with dice, that cgi trailer looked cool though
I wouldn't be worried too when I know it's gonna sell like a mofo ^_^ Fact of the matter is, there a millions more who enjoy the series than the haters They far outnumber the vocal minority.. Imagine if those millions came online to voice their opinions like we the minority do... lol you'd be lost in the sea of comments..
What makes you think they are a majority? Cod selling 20m to a user base of what? A couple hundred million? It can still be hated by the majority but that minority buys it faithfully
I literally don't understand this backlash. I'm not one to typically defend COD... but seriously? The franchise is at least moving forward.
I think much of the hate comes from making the remastered COD4 exclusive to the limited edition version of Infinite Warfare. Plus, now that Battlefield 1 has been announced people are picking sides and crapping on the other. As for Infinite Warfare and Battlefield 1, I think it's awesome to see each franchise taking each end of the setting spectrum with distant future vs WW1. They could be different enough to warrant buying both.
You smug git, release the game separate to the crutch of your remastered legacy title (MWR) if you're that confident in Infinite Warfare.
what if i told you the only reason there is a remastered version of cod 4 is because all the clowns on the internet want the boots on the ground gameplay and begged for it. the irony of them bitching about cod being a yearley rehash of cod 4 for years only to be happy when the do just that. people are funny
Right. Yet you make yourself sound like some beacon of truth. Everyone knows that this was the pinnacle of the modern CoD games. They clearly can't best it, so why not re-release the one that wasn't shite? No one said the franchise was rehashed, they just got so complacent and lazy with everything. They tried to replicate the formula but failed because of their incessant laziness.
Hirshberg isn't concerned. He is smelling the money either way
He should be.. But you know he really just wants to say.. "I'm not worried because our idiot fanbase would buy it even if we s%&t on the disk and called it call of doody.. We don't even have to try anymore so we just keep modifying the engine that was left for us and despite raking in billions of dollars, we see no reason to spend that on dedis for our morons..I mean customers.." Lol.. ;)
kinda like when dice launched battlefront with less content than destiny XD
He's kind of cocky about it because it's a guarantee that a CoD iteration (no matter who the studio behind it is) will sell a "bare minimum" of 26-28M copies across all platforms (PS3/X360/PS4/X1/PC) in it's lifetime. This has been the norm for quite a while now. Modern Warfare 1 started the trend of CoD's selling close to 20M copies with MW2, MW3 and BOII peaking CoD sales (ironically all not on PS4/X1). 25M sales for a CoD title across platforms is a "guarantee" that people have given this publisher. Unless people start putting their money where their mouth is, you'll see it hitting the same numbers this year too, despite of all the shitposts by these same people on forums and other places like N4G on the internet, they'd be the first ones to lineup day 0, at a GameStop midnight launch with their 60 bucks. It's nothing wrong that you like CoD at all. But look at it's quality in recent years. Vote with your wallets people, we need change in the industry, at least do it for your/CoD's sake.
