Year after year, many people say they are tired of Call of Duty. Year after year, Call of Duty remains one of the best-selling franchises in the gaming industry. Are people really tired of Call of Duty?

From small beginnings to a successful franchise

The story begins in 2003 with the first Call of Duty. It is a World War II shooter, developed by Infinity Ward studio, acquired by the publisher Activision after the success of the game’s premiere. In preparation for the launch of the Xbox 360, Infinity Ward is growing significantly (from around 25 employees to over 100) and is releasing Call of Duty 2 in 2005.

Call of Duty 2 is another hit that has sold over 1.4 million copies and prompted Infinity Ward to start work on its 2007 entry, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Willing to see these successes happen another year, Activision is introducing one of its in-house studios, Treyarch, to develop Call of Duty 3 ahead of its 2006 release. Treyarch previously worked on the 2005 Call of Duty 2: Big Red One spinoff, but now the team is the lead developer for the series.

The two-year cycle begins and continues successfully for a while, with Modern Warfare selling over 7 million copies in 2007 alone. Treyarch ships Call of Duty: World at War in 2008, a game that sold over 3 million copies in its first two months. World at War also features Zombies: a mode that was originally something of a hidden add-on but soon became an increasingly key mode in the series.

Momentum is now on the Call of Duty side, with every game bigger than the last. 2009 Modern Warfare 2 from Infinity Ward sells 20 million copies in its first year, a record that doesn’t even last a year as the 2010 Black Ops Treyarch sells 25 million in its first year. Unlike games developed by Infinity Ward, which feature campaign, multiplayer and “Special Forces” co-op missions, Black Ops avoids special forces in favor of zombies.

This is an add-on no longer included, it is a fully fledged game mode with a community dedicated to intricate, intricate Easter eggs with Zombie narrative. Call of Duty is undeniably a pillar of the gaming industry right now, but problems arise.

Call of Duty has sixteen parts created since 2003. But which Call of Duty game has been voted the best by fans?

Out in the first round

Two Sledgehammer Games titles fell on the first hurdle, which is not surprising. In the latest Call of Duty news, Activision ditched SG as lead developer, meaning they won’t be designing any more CoDs, but will support Treyarch and Infinity Ward in their games, just like they did with Modern Warfare (2020). Advanced Warfare and WWII were eliminated by fans on the first occasion.

Ghosts that were popular at a competitive level apparently weren’t favored by fans as they also fell on the first hurdle, possibly due to an unpopular campaign and many unbearable weapons. Let’s not break out with Honey Badger.

The last game to be eliminated in the first round was Black Ops 4, whose only positive was Blackout; although the first part of CoD’s Battle Royale game was just a learning curve that Activision could grow on to create Warzone.

The list was voted by the audience on the Ranker
