Some People Troubled by Call of Duty Sales Decline


What's all the fuss about? It's not like countries are gonna perish, is it? So, yeah, industry analyst said that there's a "troubling" decline in sales of Activision's shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts - that's in comparison with previous installments in the series like Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Now, Activision is predicting a sales drop for Ghosts when compared to Black Ops 2, but analysts are expecting and even bigger drop (thanks CVG).

"Upon further reflection, we think the [Call of Duty] numbers are a bit more troubling than they first appeared," says Cruetz.

"While the year-over-year gap is only 19 percent thus far, that includes two extra weeks of sales for the 360 and PS3 versions [versus Black Ops II]. Against 2011's [Modern Warfare 3], where the difference is only one week, the title is down 32 percent life-to-date," explains Creutz.

Analysts point out that Xbox One and PS4 editions, released afterwards, have failed to make up for the sales decline.

Okay, so let me get this straight; the game generates $1 billion on launch day and a few tosspots are worried about a year-on-year sales decline for the CoD franchise? Essentially this means that the company will still make fucking billions, only it's not going to be as ridiculous an amount as initially expected.

Damn. Oh damn and blast!

wonder if it has anything to do with the game sucking horse nuts? the franchise has sucked for years. pretty much ever since they left ww2 :)

gamers are just generally sheep, so slow to respond cuz all their sheep friends are playing it, so they have to as well.

Doesn't surprise me one bit. I mean come on, there is so much cheating and hacking going on in the COD games it isn't even funny. You can't play any of the COD games and get ahead if you're an honest player trying to level up without cheating. The lowlife cheaters have made the series a total joke especially when nothing is done to curb the amount of bullshit that goes on within the COD games. For all that I care they could take all of the COD servers and shut them down, because I sure in the hell wouldn't miss the shitty COD games.

I thought this Attack Dog Simulator was much superior to Black Ops 2. That was my least favorite one so far.

Activision is sinking in debt. They are too big, and they're gonna fail.
