Call of Duty is a legendary franchise that has been producing one of the best selling first and third person shooter games for over a decade now. Let’s take a look back at the series biggest gaming releases.
In 2003 the first COD game was published with an unknown name Call of Duty World War II. The game turned out to be a great success with its shooter mechanics and few campaigns to choose from. 2007 was marked by the appearance of a new game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare that was even a biggest success and the series instantly earned a reputation of the most popular and top selling franchise on the video games market.
The franchise made its way to all gaming platforms from consoles and PC’s to Nintendo handhelds.
Call of Duty World at War that came out in 2008 introduced Zombies mode that constantly became super popular and has been featured in every following COD game.
Next significant event in the history of COD franchise development would be a release of Modern Warfare 2 in 2009 that basically refined Call of Duty 4 and made the game the most dominant first person shooter on every major platform.
We all know what happened in 2010 – Black ops swept the fans of their feet with its new level of the plot, improved multiplayer and ever popular Zombie mode.
There is still a lot of debate going on about which COD game is the best ever and most fans name Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3 that came out in 2011 to be the most engaging and top quality online shooter of all times. COD Modern Warfare 3 is our personal favorite among all COD releases due to its great narrative, perfect size maps and a well built game dynamics.
COD brand name continued to grow and build customer base followed by 2012 Black Ops2 which didn’t really offer any major innovations but delivered a quality entertaining plot and well thought multiplayer.
To finish up our History of Call Duty development we cannot avoid saying a few words about the latest COD release of 2013 – Ghosts. Unfortunately the game turned out to be a commercial failure with modest sales figures and a lot of disappointed customers.
We all are looking forward to November, 2014 that sounds very promising in terms of Call of Duty releases. Advanced Warfare is set to be released only a few weeks from today and from what the developers have been telling us so far, it looks like the game is going to rebuild fans’ trust in a legendary series as the plot and game options look very innovative and interesting.
