Activision promises ‘a new era’ for Call of Duty on May 4th

Bungie’s ‘Destiny’ seen as the next ‘Call of Duty’-level cash cow

Despite the yearly release schedule, the gaming populace has still yet to tire of the Call of Duty franchise, a series of first-person shooters that has kept Activision at the top of its game for nearly a decade. Call of Duty: Ghosts was another huge success late last year, but during Activision’s earnings call earlier this week, President and CEO Bobby Kotick told investors that Destiny, the upcoming title from the creators of Halo, could be Activision’s “next billion dollar franchise.” More →

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Review

Critic calls Call of Duty: Ghosts boring, says military shooters should be retired

Critic calls Call of Duty: Ghosts boring, says military shooters should be retired

Activision’s smash hit Call of Duty: Ghosts racked up a cool $1 billion in channel sales during its first day of availability alone, which doesn’t quite approach Rockstar’s recent Grand Theft Auto V debut but still cements the game’s place in the record books. But not everyone is impressed. In fact, one reviewer thinks the latest addition to Activision’s popular franchise is the clearest evidence yet that modern military shooters have run their course and the entire category needs to be retired.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Day One Sales

Call of Duty: Ghosts makes $1 billion in retail sales in a single day

By on November 6, 2013 at 3:45 PM.

Call of Duty: Ghosts makes $1 billion in retail sales in a single day

Remember back in September when Grand Theft Auto V sold so many copies that it started breaking world records? Well, the former king of sales refuses to go down without a fight, and thus it comes as no surprise that Activision sold $1 billion worth of Call of Duty: Ghosts into retail stores all over the world on day one. Activision has not announced actual consumer sales figures yet, but signs point to Ghosts being the biggest game release of the holidays, especially considering the PS4 and Xbox One versions have yet to hit stores. The new Call of Duty swiftly took the top spot as the most played game on Xbox Live after its midnight release at 15,000 locations on Tuesday, and average play sessions are lasting longer than either of the previous two Call of Duty games in the same time frame. Activision’s full press release follows below. More →

Next Call of Duty game will revolutionize the franchise, Activision exec says

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 shattered sales records when it launched last November. The wildly popular first-person shooter sold an estimated 6.5 million copies and pulled in more than $400 million during its first 24 hours of availability, and more than 12 million copies were purchased over the game’s launch week, racking up about $740 million in revenue. But Activision isn’t done, of course, and the next major launch in the Call of Duty franchise is shaping up to be a big one. “The next Call of Duty will bring meaningful innovation to the series,” Activision Publishing chief Eric Hirshberg told The Guardian. The executive wouldn’t elaborate on exactly how the next major CoD release — presumably Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 — might revolutionize the popular game, but he undoubtedly piqued the interest of millions of gamers around the world. Despite being released in mid-November last year, Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was still the best-selling video game in the U.S. last month according to recent data from market research firm The NPD Group.
