This story about modern warfare, boiled down, in 1:31 minutes.

What's the fuss?

The next game in the tried-and-true Call of Duty franchise has been officially announced. Although many may sigh, this looks to be a proper revitalization to the formula.

The situation

Call of Duty, the household name first-person-shooter franchise, is so popular because a sequel has been released every single year since 2005.

This year is no different, with a new Call of Duty officially teased that will release in the coming months.

Boiling it down

Given Infinity Ward's track record of making the best Call of Duty games, the franchise may return to growth once again.

  • Despite Call of Duty: Modern Warfare being a 3 year-old game, it still often outperforms its sequels in terms of player count and viewership.
  • Given the sequels took place in the WW2 and Cold War eras, there seems to be strong demand to return to a modern day setting.

The announcement seems like Infinity Ward is self-aware that fans are becoming weary of the same gameplay formula every year.
