Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

Activision says they are not worried about players playing MW Remastered more than Infinite Warfare

Speaking with Forbes, Activision’s Rob Kostich (Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Call of Duty franchise) has revealed some new information about the reasonings behind bringing back Call of Duty 4.

Activision deciding to bring back Call of Duty 4 came from hearing fan feedback, and with Infinity Ward’s new title coming this year, it was the perfect time to do so.

“We’ve heard the community loud and clear the last couple of years,” said Rob Kostich. We thought it would be a perfect opportunity to celebrate Call of Duty and the community, where we’re going and where we’ve been and bring it together in one package. From an overall offering, an overall value proposition, I think what we’re giving to the community this year is frankly unprecedented in Call of Duty history”.

But in order to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered players must buy the Legacy or Digital Legacy (or higher) editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Kostich said that the team at Activision is not worried about players playing Modern Warfare Remastered more than Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Infinity Ward’s studio head, Dave Stohl, also made that point in the interview, stating that players get two different games in one bundle.

“It was important for us to be authentic to what fans want,” Kostich told me. He isn’t worried that players may spend more time playing more Modern Warfare multiplayer than Infinite Warfare. “We’re thrilled they’re going to be playing a lot of Call of Duty this year,” he says.

“If you think about it, basically they scratch two different itches,” Stohl adds. ”You’re gonna scratch the kind of more nostalgia Modern Warfare itch with the remaster, but all the kinda cool new stuff in Infinite Warfare is really exciting too. Obviously the Infinite Warfare experience is big with all the new bells and whistles, but it’ll be fun to go back to Modern Warfare multiplayer as well.”

Estimated total number of players on PlayStation 4 for each Call of Duty title since 2013

Published

on

Last week, Sony launched the PS4 My Life campaign which allows PlayStation 4 players to see some of their stats. Statistics include overall play-time, top 3 most-played games, rarest trophy, and more.

The rarest trophy statistic provides the exact number of players who earned said trophy. Using this data, Redditor /u/Kalinine has created a report on /r/CallofDuty estimating the total number of players each Call of Duty title since 2013 received on PlayStation 4.

It’s important to note that these are simply rough estimations – Activision has not confirmed these numbers.

Black Ops 4’s numbers will appear significantly low due to releasing only 2 months ago. The influx of players from Christmas also have yet to arrive.

In order of highest player count to lowest…

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III – 54.7M
  2. Call of Duty: WWII – 25.5M
  3. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – 21.3M
  4. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – 18.4M
  5. Call of Duty: Ghosts – 13.2M
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered – 10.6M
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – 9.8M

Black Ops III’s player count is incredibly high, likely to it being available for free to all PlayStation Plus members from June 12th to July 11th, 2018.

While this is a rough idea of total player counts, there’s still many variables which contribute to its inaccuracy.

  • It’s assumed that the numbers are global, however this cannot be confirmed.
  • It’s not known whether these numbers are players who launched the titles or simply had them installed.
  • According to Redditors, the numbers span only from November 20th to December 4th, 2018.
  • The author of the report did not include Trophies with a percentage lower than 0.5% to reduce inaccuracy.

What are your thoughts on these numbers? While it may seem worrying to see Black Ops 4’s numbers low, it’s important to take into account all of the aforementioned points.
