6 Reasons Why Sledgehammer’s Action-Adventure Call of Duty Would Be Great

Before Sledgehammer Games was reassigned to work with Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 3, they were working on an Action Adventure Call of Duty. And here’s why I think that it would be great for the Call of Duty franchise.

Call of Duty needs a refresh. All the Call of Duty titles have been the same since Call of Duty 3. A yearly release, regenerative health, map packs and console-based. A refresh would be great after 5 similar games.

It would change the face of the franchise. Call of Duty wouldn’t be that big old boring shooter juggernaut (as viewed by others, especially BF fanboys) but a different type of series.

It would bring more people into the Call of Duty community. Those fans of the action-adventure genre would join the Call of Duty community and be a new fan. And more $$$ for Activision.

It would be set in a new era. Well, it’s an action-adventure game, and it’s a different series within the CoD franchise, so why set it where we’ve already been? Why World War II? Why the Cold War? Why 2016 (MW3)?

New game modes. Campaign, Multiplayer and a different type of Co-Op.

New guns. Who doesn’t like guns, eh?

What do you think?

Black Ops Beats MW3 by 500K Copies (in the UK)

Modern Warfare 3 might have shattered records by grossing a billion dollars in only 16 days, but it’s yet to beat Black Ops in the number of copies it sold in the same period of time.

ERA’s 2011 UK Charts show that Modern Warfare 3 only sold 2,814,609 copies between its November release and the end of December. Black Ops, however, sold 3,266,298 in the same time frame. And Modern Warfare 3 had 1 extra day to sell. (MW3 was released Nov 8, Black Ops Nov 9)

That’s a margin of 500,000 copies.

But how is this possible if MW3 broke sales records? Remember, Activision isn’t just selling the game anymore. ELITE subscriptions, XBL avatars, T-Shirts, Gaming Glasses, Xbox 360 Limited editions and many more are out on the market. Oh, and include the Hardened Edition.

And it’s not that the series is declining, it’s that the game industry in the UK is declining. It was reported that the 2011 game market declined by 13% compared to 2010.

From all of this, Activision is still getting richer and richer.
