Did World at War do considerably worse?

Worst selling CoD since it went "Modern".

mmmm Maybe taking away from Modern Day would hurt sales ?

For me I don't really care what the setting is, I just want better game SP wise. Ghosts was move in the right direction, it had a narrative you could follow and have decent characters. Although it was still too Michael Bay/ Roland Emmerich stylee, why does it always need to be the end of the world?

Think of all the great war movies in world, do they have country destroying satellites , or nuclear bombs falling like rain. No, they are about a certain squad or certain operation, why cant we have game that focused?

Imagine a single player that captured the fear and chaos of something like Black Hawk Down, a FPS that explored relationships between soldiers and made you care when your fellow man was suddenly killed.

Or simply Imagine what Naughty Dog could do if they were told to make a FPS modern day military shooter? I guarantee the results would be far closed to Spec-Ops the Line than it would any COD game.

I would think so, although near future might just be familiar enough while adding something extra.

I enjoyed Sniper Elite 2 which I got in the Easter sale. I'll be getting part 3. Can't see myself getting CoD based on the trailer.

How about they just make Timesplitters 4 and allow you to jump between every war, the future, even medieval war so you can blow away knights with your boomstick.

I'd love an online multiplayer based on the Samurai! Katanas and Bow and Arrows, that would be awesome.

"which is why they came up with Destiny."

I get your point, but saying they came up with Destiny is a little bit of a stretch. Maybe Activision realise the bubble will burst or maybe not, WW11 games doing worse didn't stop them driving Guitar Hero into the ground. wasn't Neversoft one of the devs for Guitar Hero? Now what has that developer done recently? Oh yeah, COD: Ghost's Extinction Mode.

Supposedly Sledgehammer are concentrating on the SP story, granted that means nothing until we play it because it's just PR hot-air, but if we took them at their word it might be promising. It certainly looks really nice (even for a XB1 trololololo) whether that's actual game footage I didn't see. Can we infer from the trailer a couple of things? Firstly the climbing walls. If that makes it's way into the MP then that strikes me as adding something new. Hover bikes are cool. They also look like soldiers can jump higher/long distances which obviously has Titanfall's Pilot comparisons and might bring a new dimension to CODs MP.

I thought I could be all negative about it, "I'm out", but I'm feeling chipper today. If it's anything like Ghosts I'll almost certainly wont buy as I've barely touched it after finishing the SP and played a handful of hours on the MP (Cod has been my go to FPS MP since COD4).

It's a bit unfair comparing W@W sales with the later CoD sales, the game never really exploded in popularity until it got huge on Youtube with Modern Warfare 2 in 2009.

I would argue the COD games exploded with COD 4 (MW1) didn't it ness? previous to COD 4, COD was just MOH little brother, then some bright spark had the idea of making it modern day and woopah !
