Since the original merger between Blizzard and Activision it has been gamers’ worst fear to see corporate greed would somehow lead to the dissolving of the former’s authenticity and identity. Blizzard has always been loved by gamers as a beacon of quality titles which provided great value per dollar while also being complete packages that expanded in large ways, not ‘nickel-and-diming‘ customers the way modern games often do.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, on the other hand, has players reconsidering the franchise as interest has begun to grow. For the first time, Call of Duty’s graphical engine has been given a major upgrade. The title will also focus heavily on its single player campaign which was a feature absent from last year’s Black Ops 4 and will be pressured to earn more than ever with Destiny going third-party as Bungie exits Activision ownership retaining its rights.
