Every single series of COD has only been more popular than the last. So popular that since 2007 it has broken all records set by a single game. Even W@W and BLOPS by Treyarch are extremely polished titles that play well. Activision has made bllions and knows this is the hottest franchise they will ever have, do you really think them adding MORE help to polish/finish what will be (yet again) the BEST selling videogame ever is a bad thing?
If anything additional support is a great thing. More people, more ideas, more creativity, more refinement.
I think anyone with half an ounce of intelligence and given the state of the company and what Activision's goals clearly are.... Oh, and by the fact that Modern Warfare 2 was a disaster of epic proportions during it's first month if not longer (I wouldn't know, I sold it by then), could see that this is going to be a weak effort at best.
So yes, I am saying avoid it. Footage has been proven time and again to skew the quality of what a game truly is. Cinematic reveals get everyone all hyped up, pre-orders in and that is exaclty what Activision wants.
I love the fact that everyone throws out records broken to prove the quality of the titles. Most of those records, were a result of release day figures. Before everyone played the game. Before the quality of what MW2 is was truly known.
Nuke Boosting, hacked rooms, inifinite ammo, infinite crates, tactical insertion hacks want to run down the list again? Or have we all heard enough of that by now? I think we have
The quality of IW's efforts went down hill with MW2 and there is no indication that this will be different.
But, I hope it is. I hope they prove me wrong. If they do, I will buy the game but certainly not on release day or anywhere close to it. I will let everyone else spend the money and base it of consumer reviews, not what IW and Activision show me in limited reveal trailers with NO beta.
