While self-destruction appears to be unfolding at Blizzard, Activision is trying to distract us with full reveals of the 2019 Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare, and a new game engine for the series using real world images as textures.
I don't think Activision is trying to distract anyone, they just revealed the new COD like they always do every year....
i waited long time for Activision and their lame franchises to start falling apart .....New COD is proving exactly that .... i say Sony now is your chance to grab -buy back your superb mascot Crash Bandicoot that for so many years after ND all the games were abysmal
Idk naruga, people are *already* starting to use 2019 COD MW as an example of single player done right, just based on that initial trailer alone. The single-player blinders are on so strong with some people here that all it takes is a glam shot and they'll immediately forget the last decade.
@TacoTaco Infinity Ward had a bunch of YouTubers come to their studio to actually see the first two missions and most of them were pretty blown away by what they saw.
@naruga Shh, these Call of Dookie bots will lose their minds if you tell them the truth. They already think that this Call of Poopie will be game changing.
Haters gotta hate, right? Do you have a personal reason for wanting this, or just following the group-think that ActivisionBlizzard must fail because they're too big? All Activision needs to do is announce Diablo 4 and boom, they're back in it. CoD finally has a new engine and a reboot/refresh approach, so that'll beathe some life into their sales. Remember that even under-performing CoD entries are among the top selling games every year. Rumors of their demise are greatly exaggerated.
This title is stupid and makes no sense. Fix it.
Do gamers believe Blizzard is falling apart? Their last couple of games have been critical and sales success (Hearthstone, Diablo 3, Overwatch)...
This is low level of "gaming journalizm".
A sign of the times perhaps? I'd say the low effort gaming journalism goes perfectly with the low effort garbage publishers like Activision try and shove on us each year.
Everyone falls from the top of the perch :D. Kinda tired of Blizzard anyway. There Overwatch game is one I like to see just die. It's so unbalanced and not fun anymore plus all Blizzard does is release new events and heroes and not put more effort in fixing the unbalance issues. They have WoW so they are still ok.
Kinda tired of blizzard with a Mario avatar
Have you seen how WoW is doing lately? Those of us who have followed Blizzard for a while can literally see the sweat dripping from them.
Sad. Blizzard was such an amazing dev back in the Warcraft/StarCraft RTS days and early WoW. Then they sold their souls.
WoW released 15 years ago come November. That's a pretty solid run for an MMORPG. They really should start looking forward though and it's a dam shame that through all this time they neglected to bring WoW to consoles. I spent a couple years playing it around '09-11 up through Lich King but sold my account and gaming rig to a co-worker. makes me want to dive back in Just like Bioware and developers before them as time moves along they lose those important people who helped shape and make them who they are/were. Often they also lose touch of their player base. And let's not forget trickle down. The effects of being overseen by Activision in this case...
You say it's falling apart but COD will be #1 again this year just like it is every year for some reason. I would've expected people to be over it like 5 years ago but I guess not.
It won't be over till Activision really messes it up.
Y’know, as someone who stopped playing the franchise after MW2, I have to say this one actually looks good to me... I know, I know, shoot me now!
Agreed. COD4MW, MW2, and Black Ops were all a great time. Hoping this brings a lot of that original Modern Warfare feel back not just stylistically, but also gameplay-wise. Simpler game play with better graphics. This is an opportunity to make a nice, emotion-heavy campaign as well.
Those were the best CODs. I did enjoy WW2
I'm exactly the same. Stopped after MW2 as well, but this reboot has me hopeful. The engine they're using for it looks superb! We'll see how it pans out though. At least it appears that they're going in the right direction for a change.
They started losing revenue, so now they are trying harder. Happens all the time.
What people here commenting on this website don't realize is that we are a minority in the gaming world, the millions of casuals who will buy this game and parents for their kids Christmas present are uninformed on the reused maps/skins etc. Thats how Blizzard/Activision and EA as well make billions annually of the masses.
Most of the people here buy it and then complain, because it’s the cool thing to do.
If Call it Doodie has a new engine then I’m GD Santa Claus. Like you morons actually beleive anything any of those COD devs say ? They’ve been selling you the same tired shiat for years and they will continue to do so. Wake the eff up!
Shhh... You're spilling too much truth, Call of Dookie fanboys are gonna go haywire.
They do this every year its not a distraction its business as usual they don't care what we think only what the share holders think...
Blizzard made their own mistakes and have only themselves to blame.
They're the same company. Activision is Blizzard and Blizzard is Activision.
