Activision has high hopes for Call of Duty: Ghosts, but critics aren’t particularly impressed with the latest installment of the industry’s largest franchise.
For the past four years, the franchise has dominated the sales charts, outselling every other game. Last year’s “Black Ops II” grossed over $500 million in just 24 hours, topping $1 billion within 15 days—and is on track to be the best-selling entry in the 10-year-old franchise’s history.
Activision has a viral hit on its hands with Call of Duty: Ghosts, but not for the reasons it likely expected. The German Shepherd seen wearing a motion-capture suit in the game’s first official trailers and screenshots has become something of an internet sensation.
