A world war 2 shooter these days would be horrifically realistic. It'd really be like playing Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers now.
IMO :P :wink: :P :wink: :P :wink:

Yes it would be. I can totally see the big players heading back to ww2 again to do the cycle again. Hard to judge how successful it would ultimately be.

Activision have just announced a special Christmas update for both the remaster and IW...

On December 13, players who own Modern Warfare Remastered will receive the remaining six remastered maps: Bloc, Countdown, Pipeline, Showdown, Strike, and Wet Work, along with the Hardpoint and Gun Game modes being made available in Modern Warfare Remastered for the first time.

The holiday map makeover fever is spreading to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare as well! Later this month, players will find a Genesis Holiday map waiting for them as the Headquarters for the Division of Mechanical Evolution gets a festive new look. Plus there will be a 24/7 Genesis Holiday playlist, ready to spread cheer, goodwill, and high KDRs.

6 new maps for the remake. 1 for IW. The basic message being hey thanks for buying our game sorry you couldn't afford the Legacy edition so you don't get anywhere near as much new content. Merry Christmas you cheap ass fuckers!

OK - this leaked today. I knew about this since last Friday because this is one of my key roles (to calculate total U.S. physical sales by title) but now its on the web from financial analyst. Usually those guys do not leak but this is a big story for Activision.

We will get digital numbers next Tuesday so I will know the whole picture, but yep - 1/2 the number to Black Ops III on physical

Well I guess if you keep producing something on a similar formula, sooner or later the bubble can burst. Or is this just physical sales? what are digital sales like?

Maybe they should stop churning it out every year. Pick a different era. Vietnam, WW2 maybe.

And yet it would probably give me a raging erection.

Be good to have the kids of today confronted by real history.

Absolutely, because Battlefield 1 did a fantastic job of portraying a realistic World War One setting.

You can ride a horse and have a flamethrower? I am so buying battlefield when I get some time off. Who needs modern gadgets when you can have a horse.

I have my doubts about the series moving back to WW2. CoD hit big with MW and that is what the majority of fans consider CoD to be, a modern war shooter. I think moving back to WW2 could have the same effect on sales that moving to future warfare has had.

The pre modern era had a much more prolific influence over just what CoD stands for for most I still feel. When I think of Call of Duty I instantly always think of this specific logo...

Not this...

Battlefield 1 has shown Activision the way forwards and that is essentially going back to its roots while still maintaining a modicum of what has been introduced to the series over the years is exactly where the true balance lies.

Current IW in game players = 1,569
Current BF1 in game players = 19,500

I get what you are saying Dave, and that might be the case for PC players, however the majority of people who play CoD joined with Modern Warfare, to them CoD is a modern military shooter.

Which they seem to be a little fed up with and aren't buying in quite the same droves as previous years. The futuristic setting isn't a great deal different from the modern warfare era, I think people are more fed up with the ridiculous multiplayer mechanics, like kill streaks and abilities that are just totally over the top; but the setting really can't be helping to keep people entertained.

I think more than anything people just want a more basic multiplayer experience, barebones without so much unnecessary guff thrown in to mess with the formula. A return to WW2 would be a perfect opportunity to do that. A simpler Modern Warfare might still be popular to return to but I don't think it'd generate anywhere near as much hype as going back to the 1940s. Just because a lot of the current audience started on modern titles doesn't mean they wouldn't want to experience a more classic setting.

How do you know theyre fed up with modern when it was at its height when it was modern. Its future people dont seem to like much. Totally with them too with the shite version of Titanfall movement. Modern, WW2 etc... doesnt actually make much difference as it'll be the same weapons just with a different skin (look at BF1...), just get the double jumps tay fuck!
