Activision today issued a press release announcing that Advanced Warfare is the #1 best selling title of the entire 2014; beating out all other titles sold through Nov. 2014.

Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), has delivered the top two selling console retail releases of the year to date overall in the U.S., as well as the #1 kids video game franchise of 2014, based on retail sell-through, according to the NPD Group, through November. In only its first month of release, Call of Duty®: Advanced Warfare is already the #1 top-selling console game of the year through November in the U.S. overall, as well as individually on Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3. Destiny, the epic new release from Bungie, is the #2 top-selling console game among all titles in the U.S. in 2014 through November and Skylanders® is the #1 kids video game franchise of the year through November in the U.S., based on retail sell-through including toys and accessories.

“To date, 2014 has been a series of number ones for Activision Publishing: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the #1 top-selling game of the year, Skylanders is the #1 kids video game franchise of the year, and Destiny is the #1 top-selling new video game franchise of the year,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO, Activision Publishing, Inc. “We are excited about how fans have responded to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny and Skylanders Trap Team, and have even more great new content in store in 2015.”

    “…Have even more great new content in store in 2015.” Hopefully we get World At War 2 next year. Fingers crossed.

    • Guywithbrains

      A couple of months ago I would have disagreed. After thinking it again from another perspective, I think WaW2 would be great just because I haven’t played any World War related games – just pure modern day shooters or something else.

    • Overachiever

      No dude we need a Street Warfare… shooting Uzi’s sideways and shit.

      • FazalGaming

        Bruhhh… That would be amazing!

        • Crip Vs Blood

          The weapon list consists of no assault rifles ( maybe a AK-47 because they’re really cheap ), but Uzis and pistols like a desert eagle, m1911 and m9, and cheap shotguns like a double barrel or r870, and has a east coast vs west side DLC were Tupac And Biggie fight and has a soundtrack done by 50 cent and old rappers.

            Also, just like with MW2, BO1 and Ghosts’ trailers, they should use Eminem songs. But instead of ‘Till I Collapse, Won’t Back Down and Survival, they should use either Just Don’t Give A Fuck or Kill you.

          • zombiefreak935

            I would actually buy it.

        Oh God no. I’m already annoyed about BF: Hardline. I don’t want CoD to be Gangsters vs Mafia or Gangsters vs Gangsters.

        • MichiganerE

          I hope you that he’s joking.

        • çħιđєɾå™

          why u annoyed by hardline? to me what they did is good coz they needed something to bring fans back

          • MichiganerE

            It’s BF4 reskinned.

          • People, Look Things Up!

            The file for it literally reads “BF4_Mod.exe”

          • MichiganerE

            Really? LOL!

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Yeah, Machinima made a video about it

          • MichiganerE

            What’s the video called?

          • People, Look Things Up!

            Not exactly sure, just type in key words in YouTube

          • Henrik

            They have plans to make the classes like BF:BC2, and hotwire looks is a great take on conqest.

            But i ain’t gone buy, because I don’t have enought time to play both CoD:AW, BF4, FC4, AC:Unity and Evolve.

          • MichiganerE

            That’s not enough for it be worth the purchase.

          • That’s not funny, I’m black. Get your fucking racism out of here.

          • MichiganerE

            What does BF: Hardline being a reskin have to do with skin color?

          • KFC camo in a gang-hood themed call of duty? You don’t see the racism there?

          • MichiganerE

            No, I don’t look at something through skin color.

          • Whatever, I’m over it, he even apologized it because he even understood it was a racist joke.

            EDIT: I just realized I sent the reply to you instead of overachiever, derp. It wasn’t directed at you.

          • MichiganerE

            Oh, okay.

          • ScOott

            Yh I’m one of them, I wasn’t actually going to buy it as I’m enjoying cod this year so no need for another multiplayer but then I seen the story and changed my mind 😀

          • jordanxbrookes

            Because it’s not Battlefield, that’s why.

          • çħιđєɾå™

          • Its okay, just don’t do it again.

      • CrowReap .

        that would be the funniest shit ever.

    • WaW was in World War 2 settings so would WaW 2 be in WW3?

      Vonderhaar had something like “Future war game designer” in his twitter bio during the time he posted the domination tweets.

      • MichiganerE

        MW3 took place in WW3, so people would they that Treyarch ran out of ideas.

        • Haitian Jack

          People are gonna complain regardless. If the game is good and Zombies is better than on BO2, im fine.

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, I suppose so. In my opinion, AW is the best CoD since BO, meaning it’s great. So if CoD can go back to having a consistent streak of great games again like from CoD 4 – BO1, then i’ll be happy.

          • Haitian Jack

            I liked BLOPS 2. I think its my 3rd favorite next to AW and MW2. But yeah, Ghosts and MW3 were horrible IMO

          • MichiganerE

            My favorite three CoDs are CoD 4, MW2 and BO1, and yeah, fuck MW3 and Ghosts.

          • MW3 was okay. You could actually 1v1 and the asthetics on the soldiers were really nice, oh well, I guess that’s just me.

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, I like the MP models, especially the Delta Force ones (you could tell that BO2’s Navy SEALs MP models were inspired by them). Not only that, but I loved MW3’s community playlist, I wish that it was a standard playlist (one of the only things that I liked about the game).

    • RdJokr

      Man, it’d be a pain in the ass getting adjusted to the old rifles now if that were true…

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      No World War 2 for the love of God… COD Community always asking for stuff that makes the game take huge steps backwards and then get mad when the game is bad like COD Ghosts.

      • Carrisi

        Ghosts was only bad to the large maps and instant deaths, it was unplayable. I agree though cod doesn’t need renovation, that old saying of don’t fix what isn’t broke should be applied to the core mechanics of the game.

      • jordanxbrookes

        If I want to fly around like pixies, I’d play Halo or Destiny. And anyway, CoD started off in WW2 so I say YES! Back to the origin.

        • CGkillZ

          Yes we need another ww2 game. And you can’t really go wrong with ww2. With the futuristic games there’s more bullshit.

    • Vikerii

      I would like to see a WW1 COD. Would be cool to call in a Sopwith Camel strike.

      • Bruh

        Trench warfare. A game with nothing but campers!

        • MichiganerE

          So basically Ghosts but in the 1900s?

    • spartanelite

      World at war 2 how would you do that, it seems really unlikely I wouldn’t mind it since I missed waw but idk I don’t see it but I would be cool

    • MichiganerE

      Agreed. Also, what a coincidence it is. You’ve made recent videos about wanting a World at War 2, and I have as well.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I just want a good ol’ CoD game again, non of this future crap, non of this exo movement malarkey, just a normal, fun CoD.

        • MichiganerE

          AW is my fifth favorite CoD, but I agree. I want an older type of CoD again.

          • justchill

            an older cod means a boring cod, it shouldn’t be the main game next year, but they can give a cod that has both past and future……

          • MichiganerE

            Teleporters?

          • justchill

            time travel…..

          • MichiganerE

            Then Teleporters it is!

          • MichiganerE

            By the way, CoD 1, CoD 2 and WaW are considered some of the best CoD games so another CoD similar to all three would be great.

          • jordanxbrookes

            No it doesn’t, plenty of people loved Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3 and World At War. Plus with the 8th-gen hardware capabilities, a WW2 shooter would be epic.

          • justchill

            then it may not be as different as other cods, so haters then have a chance to arise….

          • smayo

            I dont know if you noticed but the most hated on CoD’s are the last 4 released, all of them in modern/futuristic settings

    • Diego Diniz

      I dont want World at War 2. I prefer Modern Streaks, Choppers, Sentry Guns, AC130…what kind of streaks we gonna have??? Boring streaks with toy airplanes…

  • jooker-jr

    I’ve been enjoying the game so yeah, congrats ACTIVISION.

  • ScOott

    I doubt destiny two will do so well, no one going to fall for the hype again … R they ?

    • jordanxbrookes

      Most of us have been falling for the CoD hype every year, including me, so yes people will get hyped for Destiny 2.

      • ScOott

        Cod hype a lot different, destiny was supposed to be some big deal I can’t even remember half the bull poop I just remember their was a lot of it … It was made out to be a game changer n it was just a dull multiplayer.. I will always happily hop on bord a cod hype train … I’m leaving next destiny well alone

        • jordanxbrookes

          I got to play the Beta of it and it was fun for a few hours, but then I was just bored of it, so I didn’t bother pre-ordering it. I’m always gonna be on the CoD hype train because I’m a sucker for believing it will be fun and great again.

          • ScOott

            Ur one of the lucky ones then, I was at game buying something n someone who works their told me lots of stuff (all turned out to be b.s) n told me must pre order .. So I did looked online about it same hype all about it.. gets the game home turns out they forgot to pack any kind of story in with mine and hated the multiplayer suckerd into losing another 50 quid 😀 p.s Im always hyped for cod only disappointed by ghosts and slightly mw3 but still loved it n I can’t see it changing any time soon not with treyarc next as well! 😀

          • Overachiever

            Same, year after year. Ghosts was hype though many disagree that the game is actually playable, I think it very much was.

          • Carrisi

            Ghosts was so bad people would rather play thier old gen consoles to play bo2

      • Carrisi

        This was destinys first title though that personally I didn’t enjoy so won’t buy another one. COD on the other hand did deliver consistently for years before the AW and ghosts. I don’t think destiny two will be as big personally.

    • Super029something

      Despite all the hate it receives destiny still has a very large fan base, It will do well.

      • ScOott

        Just not as well as the first one… It’s not just me that was disappointed by it

  • Did they ever say how much AW made? I don’t recall them sharing that information

  • J4MES

    Whenever an Activision game is getting lambasted by the community; they always pull out the sales figures! Shame because as a consumer; quality of product>quantity sold. AW has sold well because of the brand it is and not its underlying technical prowess and advancements in gaming.

    I’d be more interested to see how the player counts have dropped since the first week but seeing that Sledgehammer haven’t included playlist player counts….

    • Overachiever

      Damn, didn’t even notice they did that.

    • thebulky1cometh

      I am happy to say I am not part of the problem this year- I did not buy COD in protest of their greed. In years past, I’ve always ended up buying the game, but I reached my breaking point this year when this game was released with a myriad of connection issues. Here’s to hoping November 2015 brings us a COD game as fun and with as few mistakes as original black ops.

      • J4MES

        The original Black Ops was the perfect COD game for me. So tempted to buy it on PC as it still has a thriving community. I miss those COD days as there was no BS and the games were pure fun.

        • Carrisi

          Fun and addictive! It made you want to play for hours on a daily basis. AW lacks that, one or two games now and then and xbox off

        • MichiganerE

          Agreed completely. CoD 4 – BO1 was the prime of the CoD franchise.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Yup, keyword being “fun”. But now you need “skill” and be a sweaty tryhard 24/7 -_-

          • kplem

            so true, good old MW2 fun, WAW nazi zombies, BO1 24/7 nuketown mowing them down with the chopper gunner, COD 4 PC chaos with 80 players :D, ill even add good old COD 3 on the xbox 360 with tanks and 24 players :D. as a matter of fact let me add i actual played ghosts today ground war domination and i was so lucky i found a 9v9 chaotic game on octane it felt like the old days people were rushing, it was chaotic fun all you heard was guns shots and explosions and killstreaks going ham made it more fun and the final score was 200-199 we lost but a very close game. At 150 points both of teams were destroying each other for that B flag. problem is it it’s like 90 percent of the time you find shitty lobbies with campers, and no i aint jumping on the cod cycle to praise the older cod ghosts is shit 90% of the time because of the pussies that play it but when you are fortunate and find good lobbies on a good map which is a very small chance the game it’s fun because it still has that IW gameplay (BTW on the topic of IW tina palacios is a piece of dog poop and needs to be fired). SAME with MW3 but i loved MW3 loved ground war on village absolute chaos with the AC 130.

    • Carrisi

      True, fan base is so strong it will sell every year. I’ve brought every cod since cod4 at launch, however 2 years of fail has made me think if it will ever be restored to it’s former glory and addictiveness? Having said that I will still buy the next one at launch just because it’s treyarch.

      • Black Ops III time ! hopefully

    • Keshav Bhat

      Or because the official NPD group released the numbers yesterday (on Dec. 11th), so now Activision can report the data publicly? Just a thought.

      • thebulky1cometh

        I like Destiny. I hear the complaints and some of them are valid. Regardless, I enjoy playing the game.

        Drops mic.

        • GinsuVictim

          I played the beta and felt it didn’t bring anything new to the table. They hyped it up as a game-changer and delivered what felt like Halo/Borderlands hybrid. It just didn’t wow me or hook me.
          However, if you’re enjoying it, that’s all that matters.

          • Guywithbrains

            I played the beta too. Nice visuals but voice acting and missions being same made it bad. Also almost copied MP from Halo (although Bungie is maker of Halo…) gets boring very quickly. They really should have tried something new.

            The most positive thing in Destiny is it’s soundtrack. How ironic, soundtrack composer/maker got fired… the only person who made something good to the game in my opinion.

    • Carrisi

      One player was great. MP massively dissaponted for me.

    All that money they made and we still don’t get dedicated servers. The community has been well and truly short-changed with this game. I bet most of the profits will get invested into Destiny 2 also.

        I hope they eventually release it for console, cause my PC sucks ass haha.

        • ApoX

          I’ve played a bit of UT3 on PS3 and I think it works on consoles too. But the new UT will be free and make money with mods. They will split earnings 50/50 to the modder and to the developer. Unfortunatly, I don’t see how modding could work on consoles.. yet.

          • k5berry

            Yea I was referring to like much later after PC has launched. Like I’d completely understand if they charged for console.

          • ApoX

            I hope they will come up with something for consoles. UT is the father of fps after all.

    • J4MES

      After the year we’ve had with broken games; anything that bloody works from day one. Unreal Tournament 4, Star Citizen and MGS V. 2014 I think has been the most disappointing year in gaming for decades with so many titles that have been unfit for purpose or have simply been a letdown.

    • Carrisi

      This will be the first year I but battlefield simply cos COD has now failed two years in a row.

      • Vikerii

        Ya I may just buy the treyarch cods from now on and focus on other titles in between.

      • Yep, I’m also thinking of buying Hardline this year.

    • Lucien

      Yessss! Star wars battlefront is gonna be epic!

  • im just clueless

    OFF TOPIC:
    Back when Gold Camo was 50 kills without attachments, I got it for AK12. Now, I have every other challenge (80 long shots, 80 headshots, 40 strafe, 10 blood thirsty, 40 kills after dodging and 150 kills without perks) but it still shows as 6/7 for diamond camo.
    Why is this bugged? I wanted that royalty camo so bad and that suit. Seeing that I have my BAL-27 on diamond with 60 headshots, 20 longshots etc missing 60 longshots… anyone?

    • GUEST

      Since they fixed gold you have to get more kills. Take off attachments again and eventually you will get it

  • Ryumoau

    congrats to Sledgehammer Games! 😀

  • Activision’s buckets o’ money.

  • JacobtheSlayer

    I already know im gonna get hate frm this, but the COD community is never happy. “We want innovation” get it complain. For everybody complaining that the game has so many bugs when they had three years to make it. Well look at this the game has decent community support(way better than ghosts), and for the bugs look at BF4 to this day there are still launch glitches/bugs. Also I normally hate campaigns, but I always love COD campaigns, and it was no different this time around. Yes activision are money-whores, but why do you go out to your job everyday. To make money of course. The SBMM conspiracy is true, but when someone hacked the game code it was proven that connection and location came first before skill. I have also heard that people are being matched with people half way across the world, which believe me I do believe it. Yet still it is probably just a game code issue. You also forgetting that this is sledgehammers first game, so they didn’t know how the community. I am not trying to change your opinion, but I feel you should give them a chance instead of completely going berserk.

      “I agree, I cut them slack, I hope they fix it and they don’t think it’s okay to release a broken game, we don’t want this to become a habit.”

    • Favorite Ape

      Who said they wanted innovation? I hear people say they want the crappy connection fixed. Did we get that? Nope. Please post this “proof” about SBMM or a link to it. That is big news that has not yet appeared on reddit, Twitter or any other forum that I’ve seen. I would cut SH some slack if this was a $30 game. No slack for a top dollar game from an 11 year old 10 billion dollar franchise. Don’t run with the big dogs if you can’t get your sh*t together.

          I watched that one. He showed code but admitted he didn’t know how it factored.

        • Justin91

          He took it down when he got proved very wrong. Driftor lost over 100,000 subscribers after his skill based matchmaking video as it was riddled with lies to make the game appear better. He is an condescending person who thinks he’s right all the time and now he’s even making up his own nonsense and then telling himself he must be correct even though he’s way off the mark. He’s another activision puppet now who is paid to say good things about cod although he appears to be in the middle. Most of his info videos are spot on but he thought he could pull the wool over peoples eyes with this video which he had to remove to save further embarrassment. I bet he’ll do a video next saying p2p doesn’t exist in the game and dedicated servers rule!

    • J4MES

      ”but when someone hacked the game code it was proven that connection and location came first before skill”

      Absolute rubbish. I watch Drift0r’s videos and unsubscribed to him after his video about SBMM as all the facts he was communicating were completely wrong and he was bemoaned in the comments section about this by avid supporters. This video crippled his credibility as he clearly made it with his rose-tinted COD goggles on. He had to take the video down when he was disproved on what he was saying and has lost many long-time subs because of it. I once praised him for his transparency and balance between the games and his fanbase but he gave us the middle finger and try to act a AW-apologist for SHG’s failures. Glad people saw through his BS.

      If you want me to upload my extracted Advanced Warfare Steam log files as prove of SBMM; I will. Don’t even need to ‘hack’ this game code to ‘disprove’ SBMM exists LMAO

    cant believe people buying into the lies of activison http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2014-12-12-call-of-duty-us-retail-sales-down-27-percent-year-over-year notice every year they come out with something different like with MW3 it was how it was the biggest launch and how it beat AVATOR i forgot the black ops 2 one Ghosts was about how they supply sold “1 billion copies in a day” to say they beat GTA V which they didnt they sold 1 billion IN STORES NOT to consumers and have a SIMILAR excuse for AW this year SMH i cant believe what is going through activision’s head that esports is the future. + fun fact BF3 has sold 16.89 million which means sold more than 5 million over AW lol

  • WaRLorD

    Guys i am from UAE. I have saved money to buy a console (primarily to play COD MP). I need your suggestion.. which console should i buy?? XBOX ONE or PS4??

    • Guywithbrains

      In my opinion PS4. It has one of the greatest controllers if not even better than Xbox One version.

      It has also a great share button which allows you to play a game you don’t own (not all but many) in lower resolution (if you want to try other games too on PS4, it needs a friend who has the game)

      Also PS4 has many anticipated games incoming such as Bloodborne, The Order 1886 and Uncharted 4.

      But don’t let me decide for you. Check Internet, I think many players agree with me but also disagree. You can check reviews from consoles too.

      • Favorite Ape

        Agreed. PS4 has almost a two to one advantage in console sales.

    • Carrisi

      Don’t bother, wait to see if treyarch cod in November is anygood. You will be dissapointed if your buying a next gen for cod. It will gather dust

  • Favorite Ape

    It’s still way less than Ghosts. Can Trey pull cod out of its nose dive?

    • Guywithbrains

      Sales doesn’t tell about how good the game itself is. But I want to see some WW2 setting next year because I think it would be cool to play something else than modern or future warfare. Although Treyarch isn’t God as some so-called “fanboys” claim so I think we will see all the same things next year: lag, bugs, OP weapons and bad spawns.

      • Favorite Ape

        That is a good bet, unfortunately.

    • Carrisi

      They better but I’ve lost all confidence in the series after two shockers. It’s just not enjoyable any more, 20 mins tops and then xbox off

  • WaRLorD

    Guys.. please suggest me which console should i buy to play COD Multiplayer?? I live in UAE. Should i buy XBOX ONE or PS4??

    • Carrisi

      If your buying it just for cod I wouldn’t buy either, you won’t play it much. Maybe wait till November

    • shantzonpoint

      XB1 has sold many more copies of AW than PS4 has. So the playerbase is much larger. If you’re getting a console just for CoD, go with the XB1. CoD has always sold better on MS systems.

  • People, Look Things Up!

    Not sure what to do figured I would ask you guys in hopes that any of you know what to do, but ONLY in Advanced Warfare, I CANT SPRINT!! I thought it was my Scuf so I bought a whole new one, but come to find out, it’s only an issue in Advanced Warfare…I can sprint in Ghosts, Destiny, Farcry 4, but in Advanced Warfare it doesn’t let me sprint I either just walk or start to sprint then stop….? I even set the controls to Lefty to see if I could sprint with the right stick but still nothing..? IDK WHAT TO DO!!!

    • JacobtheSlayer

      Do you have gun-ho on?

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Nope, never run it, trust me I know I’m not spriniting I’m not 6

      • People, Look Things Up!

        I start to sprint and then my guy just stops, looks almost like I’m rubber band lagging but it’s just me repetitively stopping and sprinting, even in local

        • JacobtheSlayer

          I’m sorry then I don’t know what is happening. Maybe try tweeting ATVI assist

  • Tim Vikouski

    more bought numbers ,how is this poss nobody plays this garbage every body went back to Destiny and blokops2 ????

  • JacobtheSlayer

    Who here thinks after AW fixes all its glitches that it might be one of the best CODs ever? Cause to be honest with you if the glitches are fixed close to around February I’d be happy because then It will be playable. What I don’t understand s how Dice releases half finished BF4, and the community “supports” them, or say that it isn’t a big deal. But when it happens in COD it is a huge problem. They are both AAA titles so shouldn’t the get the same treatment in the long run. Also with the 3 year dev time, everyone saying all the glitches shouldnt be there. Well that time is their to add more detail, and stuff. I’m probably making my self sound like an idiot, but can someone enlighten me?

    • nick

      idk how u find aw unplayable its pefectly gine to me(no one is glitching and no lag) but the bitching is cuz 70% of the community are little kids and wen they find shit like glitches that then later get patched they go in an uproar

      • JacobtheSlayer

        It is not unplayable for me, that is how I just expressed that, I honestly enjoy playing the game. 🙂

      • Guywithbrains

        Also I am having a great time with the game. But I think all who complain about unfairness of this game are those kind of players who called themselves skilled when they killed noobs and spawntrapped them in previous Call of Dutys. Now finally SBMM puts you against a player of your skill level and now “pros” complain.

        Maybe they aren’t so skilled anymore because they play against players who are as good as them. This just proves it.

        • JacobtheSlayer

          I thinks you are exactly right. 🙂 although I don’t think I will ever understand the Cod community

          • Guywithbrains

            Players and humans in general. Nowadays it is so hard to make better games because already legendary ones such as MW1 and MW2 are made so it is hard to get that “feel” again without being the same game every year (as now AW changed, it doesn’t have MW1 and MW2 “feel”).

        • justchill

          but the SBMM can match them with players halfway around the world which can mean bad connection…..

        • Tricky VIk

          “That could be the case for some people, but connection is an issue buddy.”

    • J4MES

      ”Dice releases half finished BF4, and the community “supports” them, or say that it isn’t a big deal”

      Really? Are you aware EA had to amend their entire legal policy to incorporate refunds for the game after the release of BF4 which infuriated the community for many months and saw the game lose north of 400,000 players on all systems leading up to last Christmas. The launch was the worst seen in videogaming and the uproar was immense. Unless you were hiding under a rock at the time or overwhelmed by how terrible Ghosts was; you should know this.

      AW is a good game at heart but Sledgehammer have failed with the matchmaking and have cheapskated the servers by sourcing 60% of the games to P2P instead of a complete investment in dedicated servers. Dedi’s were even in games on the Dreamcast for christ sake. This ain’t 1999 or even 2007 so there is no excuse why the loyal COD fanbase shouldn’t be satisfied in this way. Outstanding glitches in AW are the least of the games problems moving forward into 2015.

      • JacobtheSlayer

        I honestly think the cheapskate server issue is money-whoring activision

    • shantzonpoint

      Yes I think AW could definitely be my favorite cod of all time. It’s such a refreshing change from all the previous IED/Claymore, corner camping cods. This game is about speed, movement, and reaction time ie:skill. I absolutely love it “when it plays good”. I’m not sure if they will remove the sbmm or not. They really need to get connections somewhat consistent.

    • CoDLegNd

      Nope. CoD 4, WAW, MW2 and BO1 are in a completely different league. Those were the glory days and CoD will never ever reach those heights again. AW is a decent FPS but is poorly produced and has come at a time when the series is going stale no matter what ‘innovations’ they include. After Treyarch in 2015; they should end Call of Duty for good before they destroy all our memories of those fantastic titles.

    • BrandonTr

      They wont fix it because money

  • BrandonTr

    This game made me go to MW2

  • tweeateer birdie

    Sledge hammer and activison has made so much money off of us … idont really. Understand why tthey dont want to give us dedicated servers the game is unplayable right now im in new york every single time play with somebody from puerto rico or Dominican republic wtf -…. and some times i go against some real laggy players that it doesnt matter how hard and how first you hit him he will stll kill you and im a decent player i know when my shots are supposed to hit trudt me i feel like a bot on normal mode from combat training some shit what if u find out the trueth .

      Dude no matter who i play i 10/10 times joined a lobby and my ping is only 1 bar. Its not me either i have wired connection and it works perfect

      • tweeateer birdie

        Yea and you know what’s funny that this problem is getting annoying for a lot people .. Because it makes you wanna play the hardcore game mode for the easy kill and it works but u always going to have lagg In the game 🙁

  • SadFace

    I hope Treyarch’s game in 2015 is the last ever Call of Duty. Ever since MW3, it’s gone downhill. eSports has taken all the fun out of the games and Activision seem to be investing less in the games and more in marketing. As usual; people like Jordan Brookes get blinded by hype and people buy the same old rubbish whilst fueling Activision’s wallet and we get poor games made from 3D technology from 1999 with no dedicated servers and terrible matchmaking. Sledgehammer have proved that even a 3 year cycle isn’t enough to create a good and technically stable game and with the likes of Infinity Ward still in the franchise; the future is bleak as hell. Call of Duty is already dying and every year our memories and the brand just gets destroyed that little bit more. The likes of COD4>Blops is just a distant but happy memory now and this current era of simplistic, broken and boring CODs is only going to get worse. I don’t even think Treyarch will be able to save the series now as they are too busy on making the games around the competitive aspect as opposed to fun.

    COD is done with and we all have to face it regardless of how well it sells. I bet millions have stopped playing AW already and I don’t even have the motivation to sit through all the BS issues. Even if they fix AW and tune the matchmaking; it’s still a stale and tired fps. I just hope Activision cuts the cord and moves on to something else that is fresh in this new(ish) gen.

    • Bob Loblaw

      The franchise started going downhill with Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. That’s when they first started catering to casual gamers. The franchise has been gravitating toward player investment and reward systems rather than focusing on innovative game play. They need to make Call of Duty for gamers that care about game play and not focus so much on playing barbie and rewarding players for every mundane action.

  • HORSE SIX ZERO

    Anyone but me notice they’re not saying how much they sold or what the profits are? If it was so awesome, how come they’re not bragging about $s sold? Hmm, that’s right, because it didn’t outsell Ghosts and it won’t. FORBES has this projected to sell 3 million less and lose 70% of the franchise’s core casual gamer base.

    What does that leave you? Squeakers and MLG. Oh how the mighty have fallen.
