Activision Admits Space COD Was Bad Idea


Recommended Posts




Right from the very start it was clear that Activision’s Call of Duty franchise had taken a bit of a wrong turn with Infinite Warfare. The initial trailer for the game was absolutely slaughtered on YouTube, and early sales indicated that the game just wasn’t striking a chord with some of its target audience. Now, Activision is admitting what we all knew: Infinite Warfare was a misstep.


In a recent earnings call with investors, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick and COO Thomas Tippl revealed that the company wasn’t particularly pleased with how the game sold, or its overall reception.


“Activision’s November Release [Infinite Warfare] was a high quality, innovative game that paired with Modern Warfare Remastered offered a tremendous amount of value and gameplay variety,” Tippl said. “However, sales underperformed our expectations, and it’s clear that for a portion of our audience the space setting just didn’t resonate.”


All they care about is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Sad!



So how does Activision plan to right the Call of Duty ship? By doing what EA’s Battlefield franchise just did. Yep, it looks like Call of Duty in 2017 is going to try to revive what made fans adore it in the first place.

The yearly releases are really not helping it too. Guess the Cow is running out of milk on consoles so it's time to "go back to it's roots."
When they announced that the only way to buy cod4 remastered was to buy Infinite Warfare I think everyone knew that IW was not going to do well and Activision knew it.
