Battlefield will dominate next-gen as Call of Duty hits its peak, says Pachter

Wednesday, 20 February 2013 11:32 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield will topple the Call of Duty franchise going into the next generation of consoles, according to Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter.

Speaking in the current issue of OXM, Pachter said, “The CoD franchise is at or near its peak annual sales potential, and we’ll likely see sales stabilise. Battlefield 4′s launching next autumn and new consoles are coming out, so this is likely to affect sales.

“It’s unlikely CoD will drop back to Earth in the next few years, as the online multiplayer audience and community is so strong. Activision could always make a mistake, but the franchise is so important to it that a serious error is unlikely. The biggest risk is consumer fatigue – but a few years ago CoD was a WWII shooter, and it morphed into Modern Warfare, then Black Ops. They will work hard to keep it fresh.”

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told the site earlier, “While momentum is on CoD’s side, the opportunity to dethrone a market leader is highest as consumers transition cycles. We have faith CoD can hold its market dominance, but EA will push to solidify Battlefield as the premiere shooter franchise as we transition to new consoles.

It comes as Battlefield 4 has been shown to retailers behind closed doors.

    Forget Battlefield, it’s gameplay is simply not mass market enough.

    I think CoD will probably start to fall off if it doesn’t move forward significantly, but lose to Battlefield? I seriously doubt it.

    Respawn’s new IP and possibly, (even though it’s Acti, too) Destiny are more likely IYAM.

    I don’t care about sales.

    Call Of Duty is a stupid and dumbed down “running and gunning” FPS game that barely evolved over the years with it’s 99s Id Tech 3 engine. Nothing changed since Quake 3:Arena. I’m not saying that I hate running and gunning games, but it’s just never evolved at all.

    Maybe next CoD will be better. Now, with a lot of processing power and memory we can have physics and other stuff that should help developers.

    Battlefield 3 on the other hand was fantastic, but I missed commanders and biggers maps (latest DLC had fantastic huge maps). + while 64 players was awesome I thought that for BF3 we could see 128 players but it never happened.
    Frostbyte 2 was awesome.

    “Regarding CoD: you’re entirely wrong”

    Since when? So it’s not true that they used the same engine all over the time with the same textures and assets?
    Come on.
    CoD multiplayer in general is weak and unbalanced. The only reason why it became so popular is because it was the first decent multiplayer running and gunning shooter on consoles that was in modern setting + killstreaks. That’s it.

    Before Modern Warfare, CoD was not that big and it had the same multiplayer in it’s basic form.

    I’m not talking about singleplayer because riding on a horse and shooting from stinger (with Auto AIM) at soviet vehicles was ve-e-e-e~e~e~ry exciting.

    “Bad Company 2 > BF3 by a clear mile in my book.”

    I liked both. But BF3 in my opinion was much better. It was more focused on what it supposed to do. Maps were also limited in Bad Company 2.
    Battlefield always was about 64 players and massive maps.

    @13 I enjoy the single-player campaigns in CoD; they make for great spectacle shooters despite their linearity and other issues. The bundle of muscle-twitch fiber that the multiplayer is however, isn’t really my thing though.

    @15 yes it does, it means a lot. it means 12 million people are still willing to pay to play Call of Duty, just like millions enjoy the taste of McDonalds.

    Why is this so hard to accept?

    I know it’s cool and hardcore or whatever to slam Call of Duty for its popularity every chance some people get, but it’s just fucking immature.

    Just let people like what they like. Is it too much to ask?

    The big FPS of next gen will NOT be anything we know about now. Every generation of consoles brings a new king of the FPS.

    N64/PS2 – Goldeneye
    Xbox/PlayStation 2 – Halo
    360/Ps3 – CoD

    You’ve got Respawn, Bungie, both making new FPS franchises, as well as the usual suspects, plus who knows what other devs like ID, Epic et al are cooking up?

    #22 2 years ago
  23. Erthazus

    @20, No problem at all. I’m not talking about people that like Call Of Duty. I’m talking about the game, game developers and my opinion about how good it is. Sales has nothing to do with it in most cases.

    Battlefield can sell 10 copies and I don’t care about numbers at all but if it is good, it’s good. That what matters.

    Sales = marketing campaign
    Sales =/= good game

    @Fin, “That’s weird. You’ve said before (and showed a screenshot) of something like 500 hours played.”

    and that screenshot had some kind of account on it? Bro?

    @TheBlackHole, Do you know that CoD games were before 360 and PS3? Or that FPS games were before Golden Eye?

    COD is reusing its engine since 2005, the coders that originally made it left Infinity Ward, in last years seems to be managed by code monkeys that just add patches, the engine is too old and bloaty too made a great gen upgrade so they need a full engine rewrite expensive in money and time, and also needs genius coders… or maybe they can license other Activision great game engine OH WAIT there is none!

    Activision is really fucked up, they didn’t do their work last years. Now its late, the next-gen is almost here.

    #24 2 years ago
  25. ArcticMonkey

    I don’t really understand why Pachter equates the seeming simultaneous releases of Battlefield 4 and new consoles with higher sales for the Battlefield franchise. Surely Activision won’t sit out on the console launches.

    For me, sure its a possibility Battlefield could overtake COD in sales, COD’s sure to level off at some point. Both of these games are known quantities with the consumer, just because people may tire of COD does not mean they will flock to EA’s competitor. People will tire of the modern set fps, a trait they both share.

    Battlefield 4 could have some major innovations, maybe that’s where this talk comes from, but I would think these two games stay in their positions as the 1 and 2 of competitive online multiplayer until an entirely new MP game topples them.

    Nah, you’ve been cautious not to reveal your Steam account name.
    But hey, if you want to tell us all now to show you haven’t played Black Ops for 500 hours (and subsequently, have been lying for quite some time), feel free!

    Yes, and did you notice that I said CONSOLES, not THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF GAMING.

    @29 What a well thought out and mature response to add to the debate. I thank you kind sir for your thoughts.

    Edit: This relates to your previous unedited post of “Battlefield 3 was utter shite, noobie as fuck” before you added anything else

    Anyway, I have to agree with Blackhole on this. And thats no bad thing, we need something new, not more of the same.

    2nd Edit: Erth, MoH was more popular and relevant than CoD before this console generation so it adds credence to the fact that things change with each iteration.

    People complaining about the lack of progressive game engines in regards to CoD should spare a thought for the poor wrestling fans out there; the WWE games have been using the same game engine since the original Smackdown released in 1999.

    That’s the same engine across three console generations!

    Stop lying Erthazus, you big fat troll faced liar.

    You must have some serious issues to play a game for 500 hours, then slag it off, then tell everyone that you played it for 500 hours, then continue to slag it off, then deny that you’ve ever played it before…

    @32, Where did I lied? I never said that “I never played it for 500 hours” and never denied it too.
    Stop bitchin’ Call Of Duty fanboy. 500 hours for me is not that much and Yes, I played BO and it sucks.
    I played Battlefield games for much more hours for example.

    but i’m interested on how much you spent playing these games. Maybe 20 hours at best.

    @Fin, I never said that “I never played it for 500 hours”. You are just stubborn and i’m tired answering the same stupid question.
    but if you are stupid I will repeat the same answer again and again: Hours =/= fun. I enjoyed playing flower for few hours much more then playing that shit.

    and I will repeat again that when I played Black Ops that was in the last summer days where there were no games at all. Game is shit.

    Also, I played CoD games much less then you who is hiding how much he spent on BO2 and CoD games in general etc.

    Shut up please. I won’t answer your stupid question again.

  36. Samoan Spider

    @35 Just to put the other side of the coin out there btw, BF will likely have its 60fps on the next gen whereas CoD will have to drastically alter or replace their engine to push some graphical panache like the JJ Abrams Lens flare style of BF.

    Erth-ass-us: stop fucking lying. Everyone that’s been here long enough knows you spent 500HOURS in one summer playing blops. Now you act as if it never happened you psychotic weirdo. On topic: bfbc2 was 3x the game bf3 is. Edit: “500 hours for me is not that much” LOL. Right there you confirmed your virginity. For normal people 500 hours is a lot of time spent playing a game you supposedly hate.

    @34

    “I never said that “I never played it for 500 hours”.”

    Jesus, how stupid are you? Look at post 15, when in reference to be asking how much you played Black Ops MP, you said “Zero”.
    Now, forgive me if I’m wrong, but that sounds like you were saying you didn’t play it for 500 hours.
    But whatever, show us your steam account and all will be forgiven!

    As an overall point, if you spend 500 hours on a game you don’t enjoy, you might have some kinda problem.

    I’m not hiding anything about how much I played Black Ops 2 – Elite reports I’ve 11.25 hours of MP played, Raptr says 43 hours total (so around 31 hours of SP).
    (Elite also says 9 hours of MW3 and 38 hours of Black Ops 1)

    Arguably the most impressive thing about Activision is their ability to grab a new mega franchise every time their last one dies out.

    Sorry Dave, I really don’t enjoy taking Erth’s side in any argument but it just seems to me like you’re defending COD a little too hard here.
    On one hand you tell him everyone’s entitled to like what they like, but yet you are complaining about him not liking what you like.
    People are indeed entitled to like whatever they want to like, but they are equally entitled to hate whatever they want to hate.
    Plus he never actually said the game was shit, just that its been the same game with new maps since COD4.
    I do absolutely agree with you on the BC2 > BF3 thing though, it most definitely is.

    He said “Call Of Duty is a stupid and dumbed down “running and gunning” FPS game that barely evolved over the years with it’s 99s Id Tech 3 engine. Nothing changed since Quake 3:Arena.”

    ^^ Again though, that’s his opinion. My point remains, he is entitled to hate it as much as you are to like it.

    My issue with him is his constant disparaging, condescending tone. “I don’t like CoD and anyone who does is a moron. But I still played it for 500 hours”

    There’s some games I don’t like, but fucking hell I don’t pollute every single comment thread, abusing everyone who likes the game.

    It’s fine to dislike a game, you don’t have to be a massive asshole while you’re doing it.

    And saying Call of Duty runs in idTech 3 is like saying RAGE runs on idTech 3.
    They both started out from the same place, but they’re in totally different places now.

    @41, Retard. I liked Call Of Duty 1. For your information, but since then, there Was CoD 2 which was okay and with each series they never evolved the game except that they used:

    1) Modern setting
    2) Killstreaks

    in Modern Warfare 1.

    That’s it. What happened in Black Ops 1 for example compared to other CoD games? Nothing except that they changed it to Cold War. What happened with BO2? …

    Okay.

    @44, “This is factually incorrect to a seriously high level of stupidity.”

    ARGUMENTS. Come on. So what is different from the Quake 3:Arena gameplay? Let’s take the most basic thing: “Shooting”.

    By the way, CoD games does not have decent recoil system or spread because old id Tech 3 engine had almost no physics when you shot someone from a gun.

    Now compare CoD to Battlefield 3 shooting mechanics or ArmA and you will see a difference.
    Or maybe, check out Battlefield 2-3 changes in the gameplay.

    @Fin, “And saying Call of Duty runs in idTech 3 is like saying RAGE runs on idTech 3″

    CoD engine is BASED on iD tech 3. MORON
    When I say “Call of Duty runs in idTech 3″ it’s sarcasm only. The fact is that CoD engine games so far were based on iD tech 3 which is a well known fact.

    @46, “Why would you need ‘ARGUMENTS’ when the FACTS speak out against you?”

    What facts? Give me example. I ask a simple one like recoil and spread system in CoD games.

    @G1GAHURTZ,
    “^ Silence, you!
    Logic is clearly wasted on you, which is why I don’t bother responding to your stupid questions.”

    Because you don’t have any logic, argument. Nothing.
    you are just a Call Of Duty fanboy that lost his mind. End of story.

    Fuck off.

    Ahh, well. I know one change that was happened in Modern Warfare 1 compared to Quake 3:Arena (like in 99.9% current gen shooters):

    “Bullet penetration”

    Well, thank god, that they figured out about that.

    Btw, fun fact (!) BO II is the first game in the series that used old Havok physics. I just want to know, for what…

    I know this is a mad thought, but it seems to be fucking uncommon with some of you people. I liked playing CoD. I liked playing BF. I enjoyed every single game. Every one. There’s been a lot I know, but its been a pleasure for me all the way. And SOME of the people I met along the way have been excellent company. What went wrong with either game in my opinion is the people that play them, and its getting worse. So much rage. So much hate. So in the words of Mordecai “So loud, so angry, so dead!”

    Erthazus you really need to stop this. CoD and WoW people (for example) are unable to understand what you mean, they are unable to choose quality, and even if they do understand you they’ll simply deny it. There’s no point in fighting them. I mean “What’s wrong with Justin Bieber!?” Really? OK.. Anyway, these games are awesome because they keep this kind of people trapped there. Think about it, would you ever want to play BF with a CoD person!? That would be fail because they simply lack the ability to make complex thoughts.

    I don’t take any stock in what Pachter has to say. Last I checked he’s like 0-1,750 or so? Seems to me he’s always wrong. This little guess will likely make him 0-1,751, regardless of how you feel about the games themselves.
