Call of Duty franchise is not what it used to be but still, it manages to sell millions of units across the globe. Each entry is just a reskinned version of the last and Activision refuses to listen and why would it? Console users are contributing millions to Activision’s cause of never making an effort.
NDP just released its numbers and revealed that Infinite Warfare is the best-selling game in the United States for 2016. I know for a fact that the game didn’t do well on PC so that means PlayStation and Xbox users are providing the cash.
Infinite Warfare is a remastered Advanced Warfare with space battles. There haven’t been any work on the game’s core mechanics for a long time and we doubt this year’s entry would change that.
Still, we are keeping our hopes up as rumor has it that the next Call of Duty is going back in time and ditching the futuristic setting. This year, COD may see a notable thematic change in Call of Duty. Call of Duty 2017 may be set during the Vietnam war between 1955 and 1975.
For those who don’t know, Sledgehammer Games was working on a Vietnam-based Call of Duty game that played like Uncharted. The game was known as “Fog of War.”
However, the concept was scrapped in favor of Advanced Warfare.
Call of Duty 2017 is in development at Sledgehammer Games and we are hearing that they are bringing back Vietnam’s scrapped concept. Some may assume that Battlefield 1 may have something to do with Activision going back to in time, however, such decisions are made very early on.
If they are going back and ditching the future, Battlefield 1’s reception would have definitely encouraged the developers to be more confident with what they are working on.
Would you like to see COD go back?
