Does The Advanced Warfare Hype Seem...Light?

I know we'll be seeing and hearing a lot more about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare after the multiplayer reveal, set for August 11.

The franchise is all about multiplayer, after all, and the overwhelming majority of die-hard followers probably don't care about the campaign in the slightest. And of course, it's still early.

However, when we compare this year to previous years, when the new Call of Duty seemed to earn many more headlines throughout the summer, I think the hype for Advanced Warfare feels a little light. I mean, we're really not hearing much about the game. We've seen some new trailers here and there but it's not exactly blowing up. Over the past few months, Destiny and The Last Of Us: Remastered have been hogging all the attention; it's like there hasn't been any room for the new CoD.

It's even more telling when an updated version of a PS3 game is clearly more popular right now. Yes, it just came out so it's bound to get plenty of attention, but this is Call of Duty we're talking about here. Usually, during a dull summer, the new CoD set for fall is just about the only thing people argue about. Not so much this year, though...is it a sign that the uber-popular IP was dealt a damaging blow by Ghosts? It's feasible.

tales of its demise are greatly exaggerated. like you say - noone cares about the campaign. Once the MP surfaces excitement will build.

It just better not be a shit camperfest like Ghosts.

yeah no one plays cod or bf or any war shooters of the sort for a tacky campaign, their major focus needs to be multiplayer,that's where the moneys at.

Activision has always at least pretended to care about the campaign. If they're not promoting it as heavily as they have in the past then there's a reason. It will sell but it's not the juggernaut that it used to be and this might be more proof of that.

I feel Ghosts had no hype at all. I didn't even bother buying that game. First COD game I skipped in years

What is there to cover? The multiplayer is going to be revealed at Gamescom. We already have seen enough coverage of the SP.

PSXE is a website of people who dislike CoD so why is it a surprise that people around here are not hyping the game?

I don't remember much hype for Ghosts either.

Also, I have heard practically no hype at all for TLOU Remastered. Just technical comparisons. So say I no it is the most popular game right now is a shock to me.
