That franchise is being milked to death.
nobody releases 3 games from the same franchise 2 years apart.
they are just going to take sales away from each other instead of maximizing profits.
That's right people "PROFITS".
That's the only thing Activision cares about.

I actually saw that as a bumper sticker on the car of an Activision employee.

Soon that CoD cow of theirs is gonna be shriveled up and producing powdered milk

The diffirence with Halo though was that one of them (Halo Wars) was in an entire diffirent genre than the other two and ODST was originaly designed to be sold as a Standalone Expansion untill Microsoft decided to up the price to a normal game.

Jinxstar3155d ago

Looks like 3 more games I wont be buying....

Kratos Spartan3155d ago

How do we know they won't do something similar? RTS Call of Duty, anyone?

The BS Police3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

While that is a good point I do not see the point in a Call of Duty RTS for a variety of reason.

With Halo there is an entire universe that is ready to be explored, there is also the many factors of characters and the various iconic enemies, weapons, and vehicles. So a great RTS was gonna happen eventually.

Let's also not forget that Halo began development as an RTS on the Mac back in 1998.

With Call of Duty though what would set it apart from other RTS games? I can't really think of anything that would.

van-essa3155d ago

You guys should be happy. I see this going the Guitar Hero route and that means death to the franchise. Goood, goood... hahahahaha, goood.

Upbeat3155d ago

bit like your mum then :D

Kratos Spartan3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

Oh I don't want an RTS Call of Duty, was just saying. But you never know...this is Acti were talking about..

DaTruth3155d ago

That was 3 in 3 years. But R&C is pretty milked!

jjohan353155d ago

Doesn't this depend on the outcome of the lawsuit? Respawn is suing for rights to the franchise as well apparently.

HolyOrangeCows3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

I simply won't buy any of them.
Call of Duty, Halo, Madden....if they're just going to release a new title every year (Or more) with some slight improvements, I'm not going to bother.

Redempteur3155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

only 3 ? i was waiting for more knowing activision

one annual cod
a world at war cod
a sergeant soap spin-off cod
a cod classic extended edition
a game of the year mw2 edition
and so on ...

let's not forget cod 1,2,3 in one big package redone for HD

kotick is small time really ... ( i can milk it better !!!! ) /s

EDIT: i'mm add COD reflex 2 ( let's not forget the wii after all ) and Cod for Ds ( wait ...... it already happenned )

ShadowRyuX3155d ago

...a fricking Hummer!

Considering IW was the good developer and they ended up disappointing and practically disbanding.

darkmurder3154d ago

Yeah but the problem is community, Halo ODST kept the same multiplayer as Halo 3 so realistically unless they release Call of Duty single player games with the same multiplayer (they essentially will but will continually fragment the player base) it's not the same.

I'm glad I can't wait to see Activision burn up into a giant hole and Bobby Kotick die.

MACADOODLE3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

COD = milked
Halo = Milked
Ratchet and Clank = milked
Mario = milked
Anything with music and hero/band = milked

superrey193154d ago

Activision is doing what they did with Guitar Hero. Cash in on the franchise's popularity now and forget about the longterm effects. Sadly, the Call of Duty series is going to plummet just like Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero.

animboo3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

what kotick is thinking.
Kotick milking a popular franchise to death will make core fans angry and will not support it or they will get tired of it eventually.
its not a good thing to announce that 3 games will be release in a 3 year window.. @$$hole..

vhero3154d ago

talk about milking it and the fools who keep buying them all will keep doing just that.. It's sad really..

aaron58293154d ago

My wish came true !!

Wow, I wonder how bad these games are gonna be. Im really sick of multiplat fps shooters.

MSpence5163155d ago

first person shooter shooters???

playstation_clan3155d ago

this is called milking a franchise bone dry

Cerebellum3155d ago

It's like someone saying they have to use the ATM

Upbeat3155d ago

3 COD games i wont be buying :D

jeseth3154d ago

You are turning COD into the FPS version of Guitar Hero!

Milk it so much no matter what the quality is.

avengers19783154d ago

Talk about overkill, I'm not sure I'll be buying any of those games, but one things for sure I won't buy 3 of them in a 2 year time span.

Chris3993155d ago (Edited 3155d ago )

They're just sh!tting them out now. Why only three? Surely they could crap out a port for the DS, Iphone and PSP too.

Sad thing is that people are going to gobble up each game, like dogs to dog-food.

Not to insinuate that I am somehow superior for stating this, but I have never bought a COD game. Never. Not one. Played them, yes, but I just never understood the appeal and couldn't rationalize putting down $70 (plus tax) for a copy. Could someone who enjoys the series explain to me, in a rational, non PR-puppet way what makes COD so phenomenal?

It can't be the originality. I've seen (and partaken in) the last two campaigns being blitzed through in 3-4 hours a piece and they play like a really bad Dolph Lundgren movie.

Is it the multi-player? If you're looking at console FPSes, Halo 3, R2 and KZ2 have superior online components (as well as graphics and stories).

Edit: Thanks for the reply, even if it was a little vague :P What I'm wondering is, aside from obvious differences in individual taste that you mentioned, what aspects of the series are appealing to it's veterans that are better in COD than in other games in the genre? Or is it all hype? That's what I want to know.

Kratos Spartan3155d ago

some people like it. some people don't. some people would buy it. some people wouldn't. everyone has different tastes. the end.

STICKzophrenic3155d ago

I didn't get into CoD until CoD4MW. I still think the campaign for that one is an awesome experience. I feel that the story was done really well, and it felt like something that has the possibility to happen.

When the nuke goes off and the helo on which you're riding goes down, you come to and crawl out to see a huge mushroom cloud and the buildings disintegrate, I felt that was jaw dropping.

All Ghillied Up/One Shot, One Kill was an intense sequence. Crawling through enemy territory, tandem sniping, and then the subsequent assassination attempt was just so cool.

Modern Warfare 2 ratcheted everything up a notch, and I feel that it made the story way too over the top. It was cool, but I don't think it lived up to its predecessor.

As for the MP side of it, that's where most people's rabid obsessions are. I don't really understand that aspect of it. MW2 added so much stuff that it just became even more unbalanced than CoD4.

Chris3993154d ago

Still not my cup of tea, but that was a great response.

Kratos Spartan3155d ago

damn... well... here we go...
