Can Warfighter Steal More Market Share From Call Of Duty?
Last year, it was all about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 vs. Battlefield 3.
While the sales contest was never in question, EA made one thing abundantly clear:
Their goal is to steal "market share" away from Activision's blockbuster CoD franchise. They say they achieved that goal with BF3 and they're obviously viewing this little war as a marathon rather than a sprint. Therefore, they must be hoping to cut into the seemingly insurmountable CoD lead again this year.
However, many will say they don't have as strong a horse this time around. A lot of people are looking forward to Medal of Honor: Warfighter and in all honesty, we anticipate something pretty damn special from developer Danger Close. But does it have the punch to really steal a few more fans away from CoD? Possibly. Some have noticed that hardcore shooter fans seem to be less excited for Black Ops II, at least when compared to last year's hype for MW3. Therefore, maybe EA doesn't need another Battlefield installment to gain a little more ground in the EA vs. Activision throw-down for FPS supremacy.
How do you see it shaping up?
