Advanced Warfare Pre-Orders Tracking Well Behind Ghosts
This isn't good news for the Call of Duty franchise.
According to Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz, pre-orders for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are well below that of the pre-orders for last year's Ghosts (source: VentureBeat).
In fact, he claims pre-orders for this year's effort are 50 percent lower than those for Ghosts. That's bad news for a number of reasons. Firstly, the previous entry wasn't well-liked by critics and it was widely considered to be a step backward. Secondly, with Destiny already on store shelves, it's feasible that many gamers already have their multiplayer FPS fix for the holidays (and beyond). Thirdly, we're talking about Call of Duty, here. The reigning shooter king should never be down 50%.
Perhaps this marks an inevitable changing of the guard...? One can hope.
