According to a new report from Nielsen, Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is this fall’s most anticipated title, with 98% rating. Game in second place is Fallout 4 from Bethesda. 

Activision’s shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops III tops this year’s multi-platform list, with a ranking of 98%, adding to the publisher’s popular Call of Duty series. Bethesda’s Fallout 4, the long-awaited follow-up in its hit post-apocalyptic RPG franchise, and Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, this year’s offering from Ubisoft’s stalwart action/adventure series, both come in close behind at 95%. All seven of the multi-platform titles that gamers covet most (noted in the chart above) are being released on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

    Because lets be honest, 3arc is a god, If Activision wants COD to be met positively AND still sell well they should only allow 3arc to make cod games every 3 years and then allow SHG and IW to make a new First person shooter to fill the gap between those three years and on top of that they will still have destiny releases (Which make a lot of money) so this is the best option for Activision IMO

    Plus making cod come out every three years will allow the esports scene to signifcantly grow.

    • skeetshootin

      Oh shut the fuck up. Im tired of all this fake fantasy bullshit like Destiny, and Black Ops 3. Rainbow Six Siege ftw. 3arc is God? You need a new hobby bro……

      • CoDforever

        when i said treyarch is god i meant they are the best cod developer ..

        Butthurth much?

        Also I played rainbow 6 beta, uninstalled that boring ass game after 3 matches, that game will die in a month bro

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          The game is fun but I can t see it being a good game with Ubisoft on the lead.

          • CoDforever

            titanfall was fun but it still died quickly

        • spartanelite

          I actually thought it was pretty fun

      • se7enX89X

        Take your own advice kid, if you don’t like cod why are you on a cod website? Oh thats right because you are the one who needs a new hobby instead of coming online for the purpose of starting shit with people…pussy.

        • skeetshootin

          Never said I didnt like COD, dont care for the extreme fairy tale fantasy land……pussy and so if I dont like BO3 that means Im starting shit? Hey when you pull the codforever’s cock outta your ass, then come talk……bitch.

          • Jessica Because

            Why not get into Arma? That seems like more your speed. I’m not wild about the futuristic aspects of all this either, but it works for me. Things change. Sometimes it’s not what you wanted. Maybe it’s time you move on because clearly this new game isn’t making you happy. Let go.

          • skeetshootin

            I can respect what you are saying, but if I dont voice my opinion, things wont change or revert back. I can almost bet next years COD will be more my cup o tea.

      • ItzSikh

        what you doing here then. Typical Dumbass

        • skeetshootin

          Get a clue dude, I like COD, not halo, titanfall, BO3 fantasy shit, want them to go back to the basics…..dumbass

          • CoDforever

            you want them to go back to basics yet i bet you were one of those people saying its the same shit every year..

          • skeetshootin

            You’d be wrong

          • CoDforever

            I wouldnt know, either.

            You can go back to the basics it all the 2007-2010 shooter games

          • ItzSikh

            hahaha, so BO3 isnt CoD. Typical Dumbass

      • ItzSikh

        plus you’re probably a filthy casual so piss off

          So if someone doesnt like BO3 they should kill themselves, looks like u need a new hobbie too. An expansion on your vocabulary wouldnt hurt either.

      You just contradicted yourself in your own paragraph. If Activision wanted to make money they’d keep doing what they are doing now, a new COD every year with each developer making one every three years. That’s $60 per year on each base game, $40 on each season pass. If they send Sledgehammer and IW off to make a new IP not only will they struggle with figuring one out since all they have ever really worked on is COD, but how well do you think thats going to work out? Both their latest releases got mediocre reviews by fans and if anything, less people would buy their new IP over their new COD. I dont see how you can even think. And 3arc the only good COD dev, really? The fanboyism is strong if you are going to ignore IW’s major success with MW1/2.

      • That IW is dead, they all left and went to Respawn to make titanfall.

        The new IW is shit, so yes they have no real successes.

      • CoDforever

        Look, im just trying to say if they continue to allow IW and SHG to keep making cods all it would do is tarnish the brand, yeah activision keeps making billions of each release, but if u havent noticed other than treyarchs games all other cods have been met negatively and sold lower than their predecessors like ghosts, is anybody hyped for ghosts 2? Eventually IW and SHG might kill of the franchise and i proposed the idea of making COD long term AND stay positively met. SHG are a pretty creative studio they could have come up with something crazy if AW wasnt forced to be a cod game. They have to take a risk and create new successful IP’s, they already did with destiny so why not with SHG and IW?

        • omar_soft

          Met negatively? AW has nearly the same rating as Black ops 2 got on multiple review sites like IGN, GameSpot, and Destructoid. Black ops 2 even has a worse user rating average than Advanced Warfare. “other than treyarchs games all other cods have been met negatively and sold lower than their predecessors like ghosts” MW2 has an average rating of 93/100. If thats what you consider ‘met negatively’ then Black Ops 2’s 83/100 must be totally trash right? Ghosts is literally the ONLY game that even came near that. And you’re right, ghosts was shit. Nobody is going to deny that, but what about the MW series that broke records constantly, every game in the MW series was well received. Almost every COD every year tops charts for sales, MW2 was huge, and BO1 ended up even better. Then MW3 came out on top of that, surpassed by BO2. COULD IW and SHG tarnish the brand? Yes, but Treyarch could too, hell Activision’s going to end up screwing the entire franchise up before any of these 3 come close. Why wouldn’t SHG make a new IP? Because like I already said, its too much trouble and money to make a new IP when its going to end up that similar to a game Activision already publishes. Destiny was new, its Sci Fi, its Halo, its a FPS, its all that combined into something new. AW would never make it as a new IP becasue the only thing keeping it from other CoD’s is exo suits.

          • CoDforever

            when i say met negatively i meant by the community, the whole world agrees that ghosts was terrible .. I mean go to the IGN top ten cods video comments and you’ll see how everyone is bitching about ghosts being higher than MW2 (it was #5) While no one said anything about BO2 being #2.

            And Im not talking about metacritics or user scores, the only people that like AW are the people that only play for a couple days and never play it again but still think its a good game (ex. totalbiscuit) while the cod community has to play it all year long, and thats why they hid the populations on AW lol

            When I mean IW and SHG are destroying the brand it is evidently clear in pre orders, bo3 having more than 3x the pre orders those games had is saying a lot smh

            Why not Make a new IP? Activision took a chance with destiny and it was successful so why not again? Especially to a talented studio like SHG (They made deadspace)? SHG doesnt even have to make an FPS, they could even make a third person full sci fi game like warframe, theres no “You cant have more than one sci fi game”, Look at EA for example they have Star Wars and Titanfall on rotation ..

          • omar_soft

            Why wouldn’t black ops 3 have more pre-orders? Its the 3rd installment in a good series, whereas ghosts and AW were both new series. If the only people that liked AW were the ones who played for two days and never played, why are there still people online? And I don’t remember SHG confirming that they hid population numbers because of that, so your ESP is going to need another source. IW making one bad game destroys the brand? Really? Come on, they made pretty much the entire other half of the series and one mediocre game just throws that away? Since you seem to have not read my last two answers to ‘why not make a new ip’ both times youve asked ill just re quote them here so maybe you will read them this time. ” If they send Sledgehammer and IW off to make a new IP not only will they struggle with figuring one out since all they have ever really worked on is COD, but how well do you think thats going to work out?” “Why wouldn’t SHG make a new IP? Because like I already said, its too much trouble and money to make a new IP when its going to end up that similar to a game Activision already publishes.

AW would never make it as a new IP becasue the only thing keeping it from other CoD’s is exo suits.”. -Look at EA for example they have Star Wars and Titanfall on rotation.- This is honestly the saddest thing ive read all day because they are so different the fact that you even thought to compare them is really sad. Star wars is super Sci-fi way deep in the genre and titanfall barely scratches the surface compared to Star Wars.

          • CoDforever

            Lets dissect this bitch

            “Why wouldn’t black ops 3 have more pre-orders? Its the 3rd installment in a good series, whereas ghosts and AW were both new series.”

            If thats true than why did BO1 have amazing pre order numbers?

            “If the only people that liked AW were the ones who played for two days and never played, why are there still people online?”

            THERE ISNT. I SWEAR TO GOD THERES HARDLY ANYONE PLAYING (Compared to other cods this time of year). I got into a moshpit lobby (which is at the very top of the playlists) and i quit and got into the same lobby 4 TIMES. It would have been even longer if i didnt switch to another mode.

            “And I don’t remember SHG confirming that they hid population numbers because of that, so your ESP is going to need another source.”

            Do you even logic bro? IF you are investigating somebody for murder and they have a box full of weapons, obviously your going to use that as evidence/proof .. same thing im doing with the populations being hidden on AW because I suspect lower player counts. Besides, what other reason could they have?

            “IW making one bad game destroys the brand? Really? Come on, they made pretty much the entire other half of the series and one mediocre game just throws that away?”

            1 bad game? Dont get your nostalgia get the better of you. MW3 was complete shit as well (MP Wise) It was nothing more than a mw2 reskin except worse (grey filtered graphics, faster ttk etc). I dont even recall ANY innovations MW3 made, other than killstreaks being scorestreaks. I gave them another chance after MW3 and they blew it with ghosts. No way in hell am i falling for those guys again. And dont forget that it isnt the current IW that made MW2 and older cods, those guys left ago and these two bad games from the current IW is proof that current IW is a mess.

            “If they send Sledgehammer and IW off to make a new IP not only will they struggle with figuring one out since all they have ever really worked on is COD”

            dude all they have to do is use the COD engine for their new FPS. The cod engine is the MAIN reason COD is successful in the first place. It provides fluid and responsive gameplay, tight controls, 60fps etc. Can you imagine if COD used a different engine like Cryengine or something where the movement and gunplay feels sloppy and sluggish.the controls are weird and its always hard to be accurate with a controller and 30fps? COD would die instantly.

            “Look at EA for example they have Star Wars and Titanfall on rotation.- This is honestly the saddest thing ive read all day because they are so different”

            There you go, you ‘ve contradicted yourself and proven my point. EA publishes two scifi FPS that are still completely different than each other, so why cant Activision? Just because SHG/IW make a sci fi game doesnt mean its going to be exactly like destiny. Hell, why do they even have to make a scifi FPS? They can make an open world FPS like Far cry or a realistic war game like ARMA or Battlefield.

          • omar_soft

            “dude all they have to do is use the COD engine for their new FPS. ” I swear to god you have a peanut brain, I litearlly cant even argue with you anymore becasue you’re logic is quite literally ‘Make another COD game but take off the COD title’.

          • CoDforever

            thats all you have to reply me? What about the other 781213 things i talked about?

            and my logic isnt “Make another COD game but take off the COD title'”
            if u read my whole comment you’ll see i said “They can make an open world FPS like Far cry or a realistic war game like ARMA or Battlefield”

            Well, it’s not exactly an Xbox-only title like Halo. It will be on PC and PS4, just not now.

  • John

    For me it’s Fallout 4 and BO3, really looking forward to Tomb Raider. But i’m first gonna get it next year, for PS4.

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    Assassin s creed still that hyped ? Lmao that shit needs to go, getting worse year over year.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      The same thing can be said about this franchise.

      • Stif Meister

        Yeah, but CoD will always have its replay value. I’ve been playing BO2 for 2.5 years now and it’s still fun. Try to play an Assassin’s Creed for that long and resist the urge to drink bleach.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Older Call of Duty games sure, but the last two ones have been underwhelming to say the least. It’s like saying Assassin’s Creed has its replay value and all you do is play AC2. I personally liked Unity, despite it being a broken mess at launch. Could’ve done with a better story though.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That’s more of a subjective thing. CoD gets criticized for many reasons. Replay value doesn’t really have an objective definition. If anything, Assassin’s Creed being open world actually helps its replay value. Both are reskinned games in which their predecessors could easily be just DLC, and their sequels aren’t justifiable enough to be, well, sequels, one could argue. Point is, is that both deserve criticism.

          • Jessica Because

            Isn’t all of this subjective? It is entertainment after all.

          • CoDforever

            Theres no way AW could have been DLC to ghosts.

            The only cod game that actually could have been dlc is MW3 to mw2 and MAYBE WaW to cod4 but every other game is greatly different.

  • Dangelo95

    This is for 3 reasons
    1.)Treyarch is making it they know how to hype a game
    2.)Black Ops the biggest series in the franchise
    3.)ZOMBIES…do I need to say more?

      4) The beta.

      • Richard Method

        Amen to that.

      • Dangelo95

        The beta was the best idea ever never thought I would see the day for a COD beta but it happened! Got so many people hyped even more even seen YouTube vids of cod haters praising the game and that was only the beta imagine the full game

    • Richard Method

      Let me add two more, Ghosts and AW were terrible games.

      • Dangelo95

        both could of been good games I mean they were fun at times but I could not play for long periods of time like black ops ! Reasons why ghosts wasn’t liked muc was
        *Color Scheme it was ugly
        * Maps were kind of bland
        *Maps were too big
        *killstreaks sucked
        *TTK too fast
        I can name more but you get the point AW was alright I 50/50 about it I liked it but didn’t at the same time the game would of been much better if sledgehammer actually made the maps to flow with the Exo suit instead of just takin regular styled maps and just making buildings higher,also I think the Exo was a little too crazy at time hated when I had someone killed and they just zoom off like the road runner pissed me off and what recalling killed the game is SBMM don’t even have I say anything about that shit

        • jt3z

          Exo suits were just way to fast imo. They should have been like Bo3 boost jump

  • Hdhdndndnjd

    Assassins creed is third, WHAT?

    • Yankeephil

      That is kinda ridiculous, I would not buy another assassins Creed unless they made a direct sequel to black flag. Because everyone loves pirates

      Well they are two different genres of games…

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Does that actually matter? Quality can be looked at without worrying about which genre they belong to. My assumptions stem from the content of both games and their $60 price tag. Just my opinion, though. No big deal.

        • MyKogInYourAshe

          Tbh i don’t know what you mean by “quality”

        • CoDforever

          I only spent 100 hours in fallout 3 while I have 12 days on BO2 MP, your opinion is clearly subjective

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Fallout has replayability. You can play it over and over again. I guarantee you that you didn’t do everything you could. It has more content, as well.

          • CoDforever

            SO? Call of duty also has thousands of chanllenges, calling cards and emblems to unlock .. it would probably take 30 days to collect them all. That doesnt count as content.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            They’re not really content. Fallout 4 is a massive open world game with hundreds of things to scavenge. Its world is practically unlimited. Glad that Fallout DLC’s are genuine, thanks to them being expansion packs, instead of a few maps bundled together, with 4 totaling $50. They’re charging you another game for that. Think about it for a second. It’s pretty insane.

          • CoDforever

            bro in my time playing fallout most of my hours went toward xp grinding and doing the same thing over and over again, that still doesnt mean it has 100’s of hours of content ..

            and $50 DLC pass for COD comes with

            16 new maps
            4 zombies maps
            atleast 2 new weapons + variants
            Specials (Exo grapple, Turned, Chaos mode etc)

            so all in all its like $2 an item, even less if u consider zombies maps worth $5 (I do, theres tons of stuff to do in them and there the most developed) so again you just have some vendetta against cod and jack off to other games/

          • JacobFinleyJr

            Oh man, I can’t wait for Fallout. That game is going to be what breaks up my relationship haha.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Probably going to be GOTY. Either that or Bloodborne. I wasn’t all that excited for it until recently. Love the crafting/building aspects.

        • Stealthninja808

          Yes, people enjoy some genres over others, thus they are biased to believe one has more quality than another. Don’t get me wrong, bethesda has the “quality” down, but they are two types of quality. Story/ rpg vs. Multiplayer
          Apples and oranges.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’m just speaking in regards to content. Fallout has more value imo.

  • TheCursedShank

    The hype is real!

  • Tomas Benitez

    Good to know that COD BO3 is in the playstation side.

    • Uh yeah, that isn’t news…

  • GTA V

    Lol most anticipated game of call of duty. For the duties. How is that even a category. How is not the most anticipated for Playstation LMFAO. OMG DEAD

  • Koolz

    Halo 5 with 100%. Good to see! The end of this year is going to be filled with quality games.

  • Logic Chief

    Anyone else have Bops3 predownloaded. i’m on XB1 and my game says i have 44.9 gb downloaded of it.

  • shadowguy14

    That’s because we haven’t had a good COD since Black Ops 2. I guarantee Ghost and Advanced Warfare don’t even come close to the number of Black Ops 2 players have. Multiplayer I mean. Zombies is dead on every COD 🙁

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    HOLY SHIT!

  • Space Jam

    This makes sense, even though fallout 4 comes in close second next to half life 3 being one of the most wanted games ever, hundreds of thousands of people over the bast 10 years since fallout 3 and new Vegas makes it not surprising black ops 3 is number 1

  • spartanelite

    As of August 8th bo3 has more pre-orders on Xbox one then ps4 also fallout 4 has more pre-orders on ps4 then Xbox one not by much but still lol considering the deals on both side’s and halo is the second most pre-orderd game

  • Ryumoau

    Really glad to see Treyarchs hardwork paying off. I guess the Beta really was a great way of building the hype.

    Though i expect to still see the same predictable ‘CoD is dead’ comments regardless of how many copies this game sells because the trolls are too lazy/stupid to ever grow up.
