Activision Says Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 'Didn't Resonate' With Fans

Activision Says Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 'Didn't Resonate' With Fans

Hirshberg also said that the next Call of Duty, developed by Sledgehammer Games, will "return to the series' roots" when it launches later this year.

What sounded odd, however, in the investor call was when Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg's mention of this particular 2017 "Call of Duty" game being greenlit two years ago. "This is what our dedicated community of Call of Duty players and Sledgehammer Games, developing this year's title, are the most excited about".

The Q4 2016 earnings call by Activision revealed the company made a staggering $3.6 billion from in-game sales in 2016.

Don't forget to check with MobileNApps for more "Call of Duty" 2017 updates and latest news. Topping all of that off, Infinite Warfare was literally set in space.

Okay, so maybe saying that Infinite Warfare didn't sell very well is a bit of hyperbole, since Call of Duty was still the top gaming franchise in 2016. Those games were then followed by full-blown futuristic settings in Advanced Warfare and Black Ops III. It's really hard to say but if I had to answer, I'd want a World at War 2 from the former next, followed by a Vietnam or Korean war game from Sledgehammer that focused heavily on the campaign.




Total revenues at Activision Blizzard grew 49 per cent in the December quarter to $2.01bn, boosted by its acquisition of Candy Crush Saga maker King Digital.

Call of Duty 2017 could take place during WWII, as Activision drops a big hint about the upcoming release. Expect to see at least a trailer when Activison makes this new game official, which should answer most (if not all) of our early questions.

Some are now wondering if Activision will go back to World War II or something, taking a hint from the success of Battlefield 1. Whatever the setting is (rumours persist it will be historical), this project did not begin as a knee-jerk reaction to the space-based failure of Infinite Warfare.

We already know that the gameplay will take us back to the roots of call of duty.
