Call of Duty Streamer Calls for Revival of Iconic Title

Published 01/24/2022, 7:30 AM EST

The Call of Duty as of late has been in quite precarious conditions as a franchise. It seems like these annual releases have made these franchises stale. Adding on with the pesky loot boxes, skill-based match-making, uninterested and lazy developing, late iterations of the series have been quite sub-par. Players fondly remember the good old days of Call of Duty. Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops where they would boot up the title with their friends and play consistently till no end. Unfortunately, there has been no significant development thereafter in the current period. In recent years, while every release of the franchise has been commercially successful, players are quite unhappy with the developers. The titles release unfinished, broken, and unpolished games. Besides, the developers finally release content in the form of ‘extra content’.

Black Ops II seems to have gotten everything right. First of all, it does not feature the same linear storyline in its campaign. Not that there’s something wrong with it, but Black Ops II took a risk with choices and various endings influenced by them. The multiplayer and zombies were quite sublime as well. While they had their flaws, these two game modes have been extremely well received and are often a metric as to how good a title’s gameplay should be.

In totality, perhaps this revival will pave the way for the game to have consistent multiplayer lobbies until Call of Duty brings out a title that the community enjoys.
