Activision’s CEO spoke to IGN recently and said that he is not worried about Destiny competing with Call of Duty.

“There are certain mechanics in this industry that people want to be able to pick up and play and immediately be having fun with,” Hirshberg told IGN. “At the end of the day, it’s a first-person shooter by Bungie. Everyone who loved Halo is going to loveΒ Destiny.”

“They’re very different games made by very different creative visionaries,” Hirshberg said. “I think that they can peacefully coexist with one another.

“I think that what Call of Duty has done, it’s done better than anybody. […] What Bungie has done, they have done better than anyone as well. The first-person shooter genre has shown tremendous staying power, as well as tremendous capacity in terms of the appetite people have for it.”

He is looking forward to these two franchises being able to coexist with one another.

    He shouldn’t be worried. Destiny seem to be like a MMO-lite game instead of a fast-paced shooter like CoD. Even if the main base of CoD somehow gravitate towards Destiny and stay there, Activision still have them.

    • Joshwoocool

      agreed.

  • David Morgan

    The similarities between these games end at the fact they are both first person shooters.

  • Batman

    Both games have nothing to do with each other.

  • MeisseN

    Do they think people can’t like and play both? lol these guys are born to compete huh. CoD competes with Battlefield and later will probably compete with Titanfall, and now they are indicating a competition against Destiny, another game from Activision?? That’s stupid

    • bob the priest

      shut up you black shit nigger!!! cod for the win go pick some cotton you nigger slave!

      • MeisseN

        HEY YOU KKK PIECE OF SHIT! SHUT THE FUCK UP! YOU ARE ONE OF THE PEOPLE EVERYONE HATES EXCEPT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN YOU KKK GROUP. THIS IS A COD FORUM, NOT A BLACK PERSON BASHING SESSION

    • Zpr4y

      They dont compete, we players are doing some crazy competition about what is best, BF3 vs BO2 OMG stop it! Different games! I know what you mean but eey am i right?

      • MeisseN

        Aye, the competition between BF and COD is just useless.

        What about Destiny vs COD? One is a MMO shooter with futuristic settings, the other a shooter known for it’s adrenaline of fast-paced combat. Still these two games look different.

        • Zpr4y

          What you just said is exactly what i mean… I mean OMG stop it to everyone that do this competition!

          • MeisseN

            Yeah.. I’m so fortunate to be the gamer that enjoy all those games πŸ™‚

          • Zpr4y

            Yeah they are all different games and they are all VERY good! You cant compare CoD with Halo… They are similar still different!

          • Zpr4y

            I love them all just like you haha!

      Call of Destiny?

        Makes sense!

    • Keshav Bhat

      Halo is owned by Microsoft, so that – sadly – can’t happen.

  • Bryan Salas

    Overall I think Destiny will be a better game. Its been in development far longer than Ghosts has been, but won’t fell all that COD style.

    • MeisseN

      That doesn’t make it a better game..

    • DanDustEmOff

      Its the first game in the series, of course it took longer to develop. CoD only became an annual franchise after CoD 4 because all the hard work had been done after 4.

  • GAyarc,fartivision

    Titan Fall FTW

    • MeisseN

      The name, so much hatred inside

  • Jon Cameron

    Why would they be worried about competition when they’re making a shit ton of more money either way?

    • Keshav Bhat

      Because they don’t want Destiny to kill Call of Duty; or Call of Duty to dominate over Destiny.

      • Jon Cameron

        One of the two are going to happen regardless. I can say for certain when Destiny releases, a ton of people will buy it. I’m not saying it’s impossible for Destiny to be very successful, but the odds of it doing better than Call of Duty are really low.

        Fact of the matter is, regardless of which does better than the other, they’re still going to be making more money. All is good for them.

        • DanDustEmOff

          Yes but they are funding two studio’s to make FPS titles that are going to launch at around the same time. So there is the potential that they will make the same amount of money or just a bit more and have doubled their costs.

  • Sonic

    What about Titanfall?

    • MeisseN

      And what about Battlefield.

  • I’m getting both!

    • Zpr4y

      You know that 80% procent of all world terror SHIT and stuff is made by white people it’s just that black people get the attention! I’m white and just cuz a person is black or white or Yellow or even purple doesnt mean that they are PERFECT or a terrorist! People make bad things REALLY bad things! And it’s just like this! People from a VERY hot country are black from original but alot of people that live in those countrys are in war so they continue this! We white people have almost always had it better so stop whining
