Call of Duty Losing Momentum? – Reasons Why

By Chris Cook - Feb 28, 2011

Call of Duty is arguably the greatest franchise of FPS games ever made. When a gamer thinks of a FPS it’s normally the first name that comes to mind. However some are started debating whether the success of the game is beginning to lose momentum.

We previously brought you news suggesting otherwise, with the sales of the game being so successful despite the slump in games sales during January. We also brought you news of its recent departure from the UK games chart top spot, with Killzone 3 taking its place.

Is this evidence enough to suggest that the popularity of the game isn’t what it used to be anymore though? According to an article by Keval at 360Informer, the game is losing steam and they have listed reasons why.

They say that despite the success of the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, a lot of gamers were disappointed and say it’s fair to ask yourself if you enjoyed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 more. They argue that Activision is ultimately to blame for the overall downfall of the franchise because of the way they handled things with Infinity Ward. Check out the rest of the arguments made in the full article.

    This guy is getting sh*t out of his ass. He's pretty much saying: Call of duty is falling, maybe not yet, but will because…" Well no reason really, he's saying nothing other than Treyarch sucks, Infinity ward rocks.

    Call of duty is breakings new records every year. They are just making the same game every year, with some minor adjustments. Activision do not care about quality, they only which to milk the cow until blood comes out. Like they did with guitar hero. They'll probably starting pumping out more DLC or more games per year. 9 guitar hero games in less than a year. The game is just getting old fast, the quality is not what it was with MW1 and the PC and PS3 version are really bad.

    Activision knows the franchise will die and they don't care, they only which to get mac money out of it. There is no more passion in the video game industry, or not much.

    If activision cared, they should probably start a three studio rotation for the game. Give them three years to produce the game each. That would be plenty of time to listen to gamer comments and complaints. Would give them time for debug, testing and proper ports. I don't see that happening though.
