New Call of Duty Will Be More Traditional Says Activision
Activision revealed in a new statement to IGN that the next game in the Call of Duty franchise will stray from their recent sci-fi focused trend and it will go back to its roots, saying “traditional combat will once again take center stage.” Thank god for that!
It was a brilliant franchise before it decided to jump into the future, Call of Duty games has shifted more toward a sci-fi slanted shooter, giving players futuristic gadgets, rocket jumps, and weapons unlike anything in the world today. I love the franchise with Africa and Juggernauts! The series has also declined in sales which does not come as a shock, as they shifted away from the modern and past-settings of the games, while its primary competitor, Battlefield 1, went all the way back to World War 1 and actually out-sold Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which sold less than previous titles, Call of Duty: Black Ops III (10.7 Million units sold to 26 million units sold, respectively), saying the “space setting didn’t resonate” with players and that it “wasn’t the success we planned.”
