With the announcement of Call of Duty WW2, it appears that call of duty is finally going back to its roots. A hard hitting, boots on the ground war game with lots of violence. A lot of people within the Call of Duty community, including myself, are very excited for the next game. But where does this leave Call of Duty as a franchise? What can we expect from one of the highest selling franchises of all time?
Let’s settle one thing before going into this. The biggest issues people have had with the last 3 titles have been supply drops, and jetpacks. Not only do people want Activision to stop being greedy by hiding content behind supply drops (although infinite warfare has been very good about this), they want boots on the ground. No more flying around, wall running, and an overall lack of well, a real war. I’ve got to say one thing, and it is call of duty has got to stop trying to appeal to casual gamers, and start listening to their fans, which they have.
But how will the supply drop system work in Call of Duty WW2? Let’s be honest, we know for a fact WW2 will have supply drops, so what can we expect? Well, my biggest hope is that it works out somewhat like battlefield (before 1) where it was just mostly cosmetics, a few emblems and some other random stuff like XP boosts. Like I said before, IW has actually done a very good job with the supply drops. Yes there are variants and they are very annoying, but all of the new weapons they send out can be unlocked through challenges, and I honestly appreciate that. I can only hope that stays as a trend in future call of duty games. what about the future games? Let’s hope Sledgehammer can set the bar for future Call of Duty games, I hope that WW2 is going to be a fantastic Call of Duty.
What about future games? Let’s hope Sledgehammer can set the bar for future Call of Duty games, I hope that WW2 is going to be a fantastic Call of Duty game and that Infinity Ward and Treyarch can follow suit. Although I will say, that I will miss the jetpack COD. I have so many hours put into them, and have great memories on them, but it is time for Call of Duty to get its identity back.
