Call of Duty Might Be Slowing Down in its Sales
For some time now, it was very common to see that the new Call of Duty game would always outsell the last one. But things might have changed. As of this year, Modern Warfare 3 has sold less copies than the last Call of Duty title, Black Ops.
According to this news at Kotaku, analysts at Macquarie Equities have been tracking internal sales figures for the series for some time now. They recently have noticed that copies of MW3 are trailing sales of Black Ops by "around 4.2 percent".
While it's not a huge decline, but in terms of MW3 selling millions, it's somewhat noticeable to Activision. If something like this happens with the next COD title, it is likely that Activision may have to rethink their strategy with the series.
