Not a chance.

 

To be honest, the next game that will sell about 30 million copies in less than two months is GTA VI.

Call of Duty: Ghosts sales expected to be lower initially says creator, as next Gen gamers wait for Playstation 4 and Xbox One release
 
 
 
call%20of%20duty%20ghosts.jpg?itok=XK6kSCall of Duty: Ghosts sales expected to be lower initially says creator

Sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts are likely to be slower than its predecessor, the game’s creator has admitted, with players likely to wait for the release of Xbox One and PlayStation 4 before buying the title.

Speaking to the BBC, Mark Rubin, studio head at developer Infinity Ward, said that it was likely that sales would not be as high initially as those of Call of Dury 2 – which made $1bn in just over the first fortnight last year.

"Next-gen has historically created a bit of a challenge for all games from a numbers standpoint," said Rudin.

"It's definitely something we're aware of. I know talking to a lot of people, figuring out what they're going to buy is a problem.”

In order to incentivise Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 gamers to purchase the game, a discount has been offered by publisher Activision on copies of the game on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, if they upgraded within before 24 December.

Call of Duty: Ghosts has gone from sale from this morning, while Xbox One will go on sale in the UK from 22 November and PlayStation 4 will be released a week later on 29 November.

I don't think that a game that is the same as the last one will beat GTA V.

That's not even a valid argument considering like the past 19 CODs have sold insanely well.

 

There have only been 10 call of duty games made so far, just so you know... and more people are starting to realise that call of duty is the same sh*t over and over again (shoot then proceed to reload, rinse and repeat). This means that less people will buy ghosts than the previous Call of duty installment (so far, ghosts has sold slowly, no surprise there.), meaning that GTA V will dominate over call of duty:ghosts.

What're you guys talking about? GTA V broke like 9 records, several of which were for 24 hour stuff.

Not even close, people are finally starting to wake up and looking for other games besides CoD that franchise is dead to me, Plus a game that was five years in the making  is more worth buying than a rushed game that took a year to make

I just want to say that I am very glad to see you guys share the same opinion on cod as I do. I utterly hate that franchise and what they stand for. Simply making the same game over and over again with a few minor changes and some different maps. I swear people who pay $60 are getting robbed, and they don't even realize it.

I'm a fan of the battlefield series, bf3 was a huge innovation to the fps genre. Bf4 is also great, and the messed up part is the kids who sell their souls to cod have nothing but hate for battlefield. Yet every person I've convinced to try out battlefield completely changed their mind and loved it. Then they sell their copy of cod and never look back.

Sadly what I am noticing is that the battlefield producers are trying to match cod's sales, which is making them start to sell out. They're making the series feel more and more like cod, and starting to pump out games every year or every other year.

This is why in my opinion gta does so well and is held high among gamers. They take years to develop each game and make it full of new, creative and innovative features. Developers really should learn from R*

It's called Ghosts because after GTA V is done with it, it'll be dead and looking for eternal rest.

Before either released, I would have said yes because COD is in 3x as many platforms. But now, GTA V seems impossible to touch in terms of sales. They completely thrashed every single record-holder especially since they only released on two platforms. Good to see GTA is still the big dog in the industry.

Just yesterday Activision said Ghosts is selling worse than Black Ops 2, and yet some fools still believe it'll outsell GTA V.

You fools you gullible fools wake up WAKPE UP NOW! Put your head up to your screen, so I can vibrate some sense into that thick head of yours.

I will cry tears of joy when this franchise is finally buried 6 feet under.

Honestly, you guys are awesome. I have a feeling your all cool motherfuc*ers in real life. Seems like people who play call of duty are brainless retards, no matter what you say or how terrible the game is they defend it to their last breath. Just glad to see some intelligence left in the world, and people who understand what a good game really is, people who pay for innovation.

Didn't Vice City and San Andreas also break some records? IV did as well, and that was with a low pool of console owners.

Not sure about VC and SA (Wouldn't be surprised if they did), but yeah GTA IV broke many sales records at time of release. COD's run wont last forever. People are realising they're getting a fresh coat of paint on a old product it seems.

No game will beat GTA V in sales, unless it's GTA VI and I even doubt that

They should ban cod ghosts because there's a dog in the gameplay scene in the middle of the fire zone. Where's peta, alpha, beta, zeta, omega now?? You know... and more argumentative stuff like they used against gta v.

SA broke record sales and kept it until GTA IV, then COD and Avatar among others broke it again and again and now GTA V is on top. I don't think Ghosts would beat GTA V, it just doesn't feel as hyped.

Glad That GTA V kept the record :santa: After all we are fans of GTA here, and V deserve praise more than COD. I loved first CODs until WAW but after that it become pure money grabbing and hurt entire industry becouse all developers started to streamline games as much as they can so they could get some COD money. But it couldn't goes forever,even those who play only COD finnaly got bored of entire cyclus and start to abandon it. COD will still bring millions but Titanfall,Destiny and Battlefield will take a part of market and COD will stop being 'cool' thing for highschool kids and they will just abandon it. 

Until something even worse took over  :panic:

A year?  Try 2.  They alternate developers.  Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, giving each developer 2 years to make the game. 

 

I love how everyone ALWAYS spews this "CoD is getting stale, it's losing popularity" a week before the new one comes out - then the new ones SHATTERS the old one in sales.  Ghosts didn't beat GTA V because of the number of people awaiting the new consoles.

And just so all of you are aware - it shattered GTA V in sales.  GTA V took 3 days to hit $1 billion, COD did that in 24 hours.  I love how everyone ALWAYS spews this "CoD is getting stale, it's losing popularity" a week before the new one comes out - then the new ones SHATTERS the old one in sales.

 

 

You might want to do some reading and edit your comment before someone kicks it in the teeth. Call of Duty ghosts did not make a billion on customer sales. Purely sales to retail, if Rockstar released their retail sales number in 24 hours, it would probably double that of what CoD is claiming. The 7 guiness world records still state GTA V and not Call of Duty ghosts, and there is no evidence for it changing any time soon. Use your brain before posting.
