The Call Of Duty Franchise has always been pulled into the dilemma of being the best FPS shooter of all. In 2016, a spark between EA’s Battlefield 1 and Activision’s Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare set the fire between both franchises. With EA playing differently this time around by allowing gamers to experience WW1, EA definitely seemed like they’ve got the whole cake once hatred was fired at Infinite Warfare’s Trailer released on YouTube.
EA’s Battlefield 1 is indeed an amazing game that changes our perspective of our history, but according to sales figures by revenue, it seems like COD took the cake again in 2016 by becoming the top seller worldwide for 7 years in a row, and top-seller in the US for 8 years in a row, reports Kevin Kelly who is the Editorial Manager at Activision.
“Call of Duty is the #1 console franchise worldwide in 2016,” – said Eric Hirshberg, Activision CEO.
The CEO then added:
“We’re thankful to our players for once again putting Call of Duty on top, and we recognize how rare this is – to do year after year. That’s why we push to deliver innovations and incredible gameplay that are worthy of the best fans in the world time and again. And we have an exciting year ahead in 2017.”
Indeed amazing news for Activision and they seem to be working on more content as we speak to keep up the enthusiasm.
