The Future of Call of Duty

The majority of Call of Duty fans do not like the direction the series is headed into, and I can agree. These last 3 titles have been a huge...

    There is no doubt that the Call of Duty franchise is one of the biggest entities in the gaming scene right now. The franchise has a huge following of loyal customers who purchase new CoD games annually, but how long will this cycle last?

    With games like CS:GO beginning to skyrocket in popularity, the future for Call of Duty is beginning to look grim, especially if they continue with what they're doing. I'm sure if I were to ask about 100 members on this website what their favourite Call of Duty title was, chances are that they'll pick something between CoD 4 and BOII. Now what makes the earlier games more favorable over the more recent titles? Well many people tend to point the finger at how Call of Duty has become more futuristic these past few years. Whether that's the reason or not, there's something that just doesn't click in these past few titles like it did in the others.

    We all remember Call of Duty: Ghosts correct? Well then you'd know that Call of Duty: Ghosts is considered the worst Call of Duty title released till this day. Just last week, Activision confirmed that Infinity Ward, the developers behind Ghosts, are responsible for this years CoD title. I'd be lying if I said that I don't want a Call of Duty: Ghosts 2, the majority of the community doesn't. What happens if this game turns out exactly the way the first Ghosts turned out? Will the Call of Duty franchise be able to survive another catastrophe like Ghosts?

    Ever since the release of BOII, the competitive gaming scene has blown up in popularity. The series took a big shift and became a huge leader in the eSports industry. Another game that is also blowing up in the eSports community is CS:GO. Over these last few months, I've seen many of my CoD friends transition into CS:GO, and the same goes for Call of Duty based YouTube content creators. More and more Call of Duty players are slowly beginning to transition into other games like CS:GO. What can Activision do to maintain their fanbase? Because as it goes now, it's beginning to look pretty grim.

    Avid fans continue to clamor on about how they'd rather have a traditional Call of Duty title again. Most people are sick and tired of all of this futuristic stuff that has made its way into Call of Duty these past few years, and I feel the same way. I guess it's time to wait and see what Call of Duty will decide to go into the future, but I for one pray that we avoid another Ghosts title and another futuristic CoD, although that doesn't leave much room for anything else. What do you think? Where do you see CoD going in the future? Where do you want it to go? Leave your thoughts below!

    People are tired of futuristic Call of Duty. Ghosts wasn't futuristic. People complain about it. I still don't understand. Maybe everyone's just beginning to realize how bad Call of Duty has always been.

    I want to see MW4. I don't want to see the franchise go forward as far as game design and mechanics. Take it back to the MW2/MW3 days. Of course change up some things, but it seems as if the newer games are just shoving too much down our throats. Adding in too much content can sometimes do this. The franchise has been doing this since AW. IW needs to realize what really was the majority favorite title, that being either COD4 or MW2. This future sh*t turns me off so much. COD does not retain the same 'gaming-until-ungodly-hours-of-the-morning-with-my-buds' effect that MW2/3 did.

    The last Call of Duty I bought was CoD: Ghosts. I do not think it's the best, but it's my favourite. Personally, I have no idea about why it 'sucks', to me, it's great. It's the Call of Duty I got to play with all my mates, which makes it my favourite for sentimental reasons - which is why I absolutely hate anyone that says it 'sucks' without being able to give a valid reason. In my eyes, the best Call of Duty is, and always will be, CoD: 4. The graphics, player ability, multiplayer, pretty much everything is extraordinary in comparison with the previous Call of Duty (CoD: 3). If you take a look at the engines the newer CoDs are built on, they still resemble CoD: 4 greatly, and that, is why it's the best CoD in my opinion - it's legacy is still with us, nearly 10 years on. I can not say I will not be purchasing the latest CoD, but, I do not want to. It seems a waste of money to me, as I can pick up Star Wars which is the same thing, but without the annoying community of CoD.

      CoD still uses the Unreal engine. It's just more updated. But yes, CoD 4 is most definitely the best release in the CoD series
    2. Snowy
      Yeah, I love it. But, I also think the first CoD should be considered as one of the best, after all, it was the roots of the fps industry.
    3. Ferret
      Yes. CoD 4 is the only game in the serious that I enjoyed getting to the highest rank. These newer games just take so much energy and it is truly overwhelming. But as for single player in the CoD series...the Finest Hour was my favorite

    Doesn't matter how many people write post about this nothing will change the way call of duty is going its always going to be futuristic every call of duty they make they do not detect to us old timers they look what sells based upon how many kids are playing the game they no longer make call of dutys for adults.

    I loved CoD4, WaW, the first Black Ops, and the MW series but afterward everything just went to sh*t.
    1. Smart
      Yeah it really sucks!

    They need to remake Cod 4 with the characteristics of MW2 with a taste of BO3 in it. I'd buy a remastered version of Cod 4 and I have no doubt that others will agree
