Activision has spoken out to why they dish out a new Call of Duty video game annually.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg said the following in an interview Eurogamer:
The cadence of the releases seems to have found a nice equilibrium with people’s appetite. There’s demand and excitement each and every time out. Then people are playing throughout the year. We have our biggest community of players today. Right now there are more people playing Call of Duty today than ever, which is remarkable for a franchise that’s been around as long as Call of Duty has. But, we don’t take anything for granted.
You cannot deny the fact that he has a point. Every new Call of Duty game that has come out since 2007 have sold over 20 million copies each. Not to mention the words “Call of Duty” and the game itself has become known to people outside of the video game industry too.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is the newest game coming out this November. It wont surprise anyone if another COD game is released in November 2014 as well…
