Call of Duty to continue annual release

The process of a new Call of Duty title every year has often met with disapproval from the fans. The titles released are often more or less the same and lack polish. The community feels that Activision should let studios take a breather and take more time to develop better titles.

However, from a business point of view, Activision would oppose this. This would cause a one whole year delay where Activision does not get revenue.

Long time reliable leaker associated with the series, Tom Henderson took to Twitter to all murder all hope the community had. He made a Twitter post to state that Acitvision would, in fact, not abandon its strategy of annual releases.

He was quite crude and direct and did not offer an explanation. However, this theory does indeed fall in place with the practices Activision has adopted. Call of Duty, regardless of how well made it is, tends to generate tons of profit every year.

Even if the game is quite average and mediocre, the title generates immense revenue. So it does not make a lot of sense that Activision, would sacrifice one whole year’s worth of profits just to make a better game which would not make them a bigger profit by a larger margin.
