Activision: Infinite Warfare Underperformed, The Space Setting “Just Didn’t Resonate” With Everyone

Although Call of Duty was the #1 franchise in 2016, Infinite Warfare’s sales were down compared to Black Ops 3. In the Activision Blizzard earnings call yesterday, COO Thomas Tippl called Infinite Warfare a high quality, innovative game, but admitted that “sales underperformed our expectations, and it’s clear that for a portion of our audience, the space setting just didn’t resonate.” He continued: “We had a passionate, experienced studio deeply committed to this direction, and despite the risks we saw, we believe it is important to consider the passions of our game teams in deciding what content to create. While it wasn’t the success we planned, it allows us to protect a core tenets of our culture… empowering our talented teams to have the chance to pursue opportunities that they are passionate about.” Asked if they plan to change anything in Call of Duty 2017 based on the reaction to Infinite Warfare, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said: With any longstanding franchise like Call of Duty, there’s a balancing act we need to strike between staying true to the things that people love about the franchise and also the need to never become complacent and to keep pushing for innovations to keep the franchise fresh and vital. I would READ FULL…


Activision Says Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare 'Didn't Resonate' With Fans

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare didn’t live up to Activision’s expectations, the publisher said today, offering a surprisingly candid assessment of the most recent entry in their yearly shooter franchise. Advertisement On an earnings call, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said that Infinite Warfare’s sales underperformed and that the sci-fi setting “didn’t resonate” with Call of Duty players. “Infinite Warfare had a ton of great gameplay innovations,” Hirshberg added. “But it also had a setting that didn’t appeal to all of our fans.” The next Call of Duty, which will be out this fall and developed by Sledgehammer Games, will return to the series’ roots, Hirshberg said. Advertisement This closes the loop on a dramatic year for Call of Duty that began when Activision announced Infinite Warfare in May of 2016. Fans, clearly not thrilled with the game, turned it into the second-most-disliked video in YouTube history. But on an earnings call shortly afterwards, Hirshberg defended the game, saying, among other things: And while of course we see the passionate opinions online, we also look at other measurements. And the fact is, while it’s READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Sabotage DLC Impressions – Out of the Woods

[embedded content] Call of Duty seems to be following a formula, even when under control of a different developer. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s first DLC is another single word named pack, Sabotage, containing four new multiplayer maps and a new Zombies campaign. Three of the multiplayer maps are brand new, while one is a reimagining of an old Call of Duty map, again a trend that permeated Black Ops 3’s DLC packs last year. While we were a little hard on Infinite Warfare’s multiplayer when we first reviewed it last year, we decided to take another look with the new Sabotage DLC. The biggest highlight of the new maps is how impressive the visuals on each of them are. I was content walking around each one solo in private games just talking in the details of these futuristic worlds that they’ve created. The level artists have really gone above and beyond to make them each feel like real living places, and not just sets where multiplayer combat happens to take place. We’ll look at each one in more detail below. Noir Noir is a neo-futuristic level, located in Brooklyn, and combines elements of the old classic architecture of the city with neon lights and…


Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Features Double Keys This Weekend, Demolition Featured

There’s plenty of good reasons to jump back into Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare this weekend, and it’s not just because the Sabotage DLC pack is now available. Starting today, the game will be giving out double keys in multiplayer. This promotion lasts until Monday, February 6 at 10am PST. Keys are used to unlock in-game Supply Drops, which includes a variety of items players can use in multiplayer. It takes 10 keys in order to open a standard box, while rare ones take 30 keys. That’s not all, though, as the fan favorite Demolition mode is also getting some love. Developer Infinity Ward tweeted out that the mode “makes its debut in the Featured playlist” today. Unlike the double keys promotion, which only lasts for this weekend, Demolition will be getting the primetime treatment all week long. It ends on Friday, February 10. In PlayStation LifeStyle’s review of Infinite Warfare, reviewer Chandler Wood found the latest entry in Activision’s long running series to be impressive in certain aspects, but disappointing elsewhere: Outside of the innovative campaign, Infinite Warfare plays it safe by cloning and tweaking what’s worked in the past with multiplayer and Zombies, which makes neither really seem like products of Infinity Ward. Gameplay imbalance READ FULL…

They explained: Hop into a match, play through it, and the data will refresh and show up to be the most current. We put a lot of thought into leaderboard design, as we wanted to strike the right balance of a familiar yet evolving look at multiplayer data. You’ll notice our leaderboards display the top 10,000 players at a time. The core of our multiplayer has always been centered around fostering a highly competitive environment and setting goals for players to achieve. So, making it into the top 10,000 worldwide seemed like a worthy goal. It adds to the sense of accomplishment and bragging rights you get from…
