Activision says that there will “always be Call of Duty games”

1 min read


One day, our sun will go supernova and consume this mudball we all live on. And the only trace of humanity left over after the cosmic dust settles, will most likely be a box of Debonairs pizza floating around the galaxy looking for a triple-decker planet to crash-land on. And even then, you’ll still be able to expect a new Call of Duty game to release annually.

That’s the word according to Activision’s Bobby Kotick, as he confirmed to Marketplace that the Call of Duty franchise isn’t going anywhere soon. “We’ve had Call of Duty games played on virtually every console for the last 14 years,” Kotick said.

So the idea of having a game that centers around armed conflict through history…you never run out of ideas for Call of Duty games. There will always be Call of Duty games. And they’ll be played on a variety of devices.


This question was asked in response to the growing popularity of smartphone gaming, a platform that could one day eclipse console and PC. According to Kotick however, Activision will always release games on whichever platform they need to. And I don’t ever believe that we’ll ever see Call of Duty end as a franchise. As Kotick said, it’s still alive and kicking after 14 years, and even Call of Duty games which don’t sell well, can boast having numbers that would make other developers shed massive tears.

But it’s that success which keep Kotick on his toes apparently, as described an “insecurity” that he says makes Activision wary of ever becoming complacent:

I look over my shoulder every day. There is a level of insecurity you have about being a leader in a business and without that insecurity, I think you get complacency.

The latest game in the franchise, Infinite Warfare, takes place on Earth and spaaaaaaaaaaace this year. Although I can’t wait to see a Call of Duty game finally tackle the eventual console wars at this rate.

    That’s because Activision is a little money hungry parasite that bleeds it’s host dry. Take Warlords of Dreanor for example.

    I have to speak up (prepares to hand in gamer licence).. I hadn’t invested COD since modernwarfare. But got BLOPS3 at my local cash crusaders on the cheap. The reason local coop… As I made the poor decision to buy a ps4 bundle with two controllers…because my girl games and my kid for that matter.

    See COD seems to be the only AAA that feels the need to support such Tom foolery as two people on a single video game device (looking at you, every coop orientated AAA to come out this year)

    But that aside I bought a COD game and suffered buyers joy. Firstly it feels great on a controller even better than destiny and it’s a twitch shooter. content campaign, campaign again but with zombies as well, proper zombies, multilayer online all this supported splitscreen and in local mode (great for Telekom customers).

    My two cents…. (braces for the coming storm)
