Call of Duty: Modern Warfare can help Activision stocks according to the analysts.
Today when we look at gaming, we can see several big companies at the top of the pyramid. However, in gaming, there is no such thing as a monopoly. Since the tastes of each gamer is different and the market is saturated enough with different variety of games. One of these big names is Activision. Activision is a huge company, some of you may not know, however even Blizzard is under the Activision banner. Even just with Blizzard, Activision can be a giant. However, they have also other games on the market. Most notably Call of Duty series.
Analysts from several institutes are thinking that Activision is doing alright in the stock market. They have a 21% rise in their stock value since the beginning of the year. Also, analysts are claiming that this year’s Call of Duty’s microtransaction system might boost another growth for the company. The new microtransaction system is as we all know the Battle Pass. Call of Duty Modern Warfare has a battle pass system. Of course, analysts are believing that this can boost the sales numbers up and help the company on its way. Most interestingly they are making a comparison between Fortnite and the Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s new Battle Pass.
However, these two are not identical examples. Fortnite is a free-to-play game on the other hand Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is not. The game costs $60 and on top of it, players will need to pay another $10 to unlock some cosmetics. This alone will make it unavailable to most of the market. Because most of the players are not keen paying $60 and paying another $10 on top of this. But let us give Activision and Infinity Ward their fair share since this method is much better than Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 had. Even though things are standing like this believe that it would be hard to compare both games.
Also recently, Infinity Ward sent out surveys to some players who stopped playing the game. This is also another problem. As we all know these companies work with shareholders and these people do not like losing money. Therefore it will be interesting to see, how this will perform. Call of Duty Modern Warfare has several issues. In the core, there is the issue of SBMM and spawn logic. These two are currently considered broken by the players. Also with the recent news about the Season, 1 will be divided into sections some of the players are voicing their concern.
