The Move to CoD Ghosts

There is a trend where it comes to Call of Duty (CoD) in the Telkom Do Gaming League (DGL). CoD games don’t last very long when it comes to loyalty, people are always moving to the newer title.

Due to Activision’s aggressive release schedule it becomes difficult for any CoD game to establish a competitive foothold as players are constantly jumping ship for the latest title in the franchise. The only game in the CoD franchise that lasted longer than two years was CoD4: Modern Warfare (CoD4). The reasoning behind this lasting impression is that so far the newer titles have not been able to give the competitive gamers the experience that they craved.

Many people have been saying lately that CoD: Ghosts might be the game that will take over from CoD4. If a promod of the multiplayer is released, the game will be almost perfect. A lot of players are praising the newest title, but this always seems to happen in the beginning. Not too long ago players were saying that they would not move over from CoD: Black Ops 2 (Blops 2) and yet here we are.

In the past there has been a staggering amount of disloyalty when it comes to the CoD games and that doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon. In fact, Activision has stated that they do not want people to play the game for more than nine months, after which they start getting excited for the next release. This could pose a major problem for Activision in the future as there are only so many ways you can make an “army” game. Eventually they will run out of new content and the gamers will be exceedingly disappointed, if they are not already.

It seems that CoD4 is officially dead and hopefully CoD: Ghosts will be able to take its place and last longer than its recommended time frame. If not, players will never actually become as good as the CoD4 professionals of the day. With Activision’s release schedule they seem to be stunting the skill growth that comes from playing a game for long periods of time.

Will you be moving over to CoD: Ghosts?
