Call of Duty year-on-year sales fall new reports suggest

Although continuing to dominate the gaming industry new reports have suggested that Activision has seen year-on-year COD sales fall

 

Despite being the most eagerly awaited title on many a gaming fan’s calendar, new figures have shown that year-on-year Call of Duty sales have begun to slow.

With publisher Activision expected to formally unveil its next-generation COD offering in the coming weeks a number of reports have suggested that the dominant Call of Duty franchise is beginning to lose some of its lustre with last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 release failing to hit the sales figures laid out by it predecessor Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Arguably the most awaited title of 2011, COD: MW3 has fallen behind the timeframe respective sales figures of Black Ops with Gamasutra reports suggesting Modern Warfare 3 sales are 4.2 per cent behind the figure recorded by Black Ops the same period after launch.

With March sales figures of COD: Modern Warfare 3 claimed to be less than half of the Black Ops sales from one year previous Activision will look to get back to its winning ways in 2012 with a number of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 rumours already circling the web.

Has the Call of Duty franchise lost some of its first-person shooter credentials and draw? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
