>>3959>They have had some modest successes that are deemed "failures" because they don't sell COD numbers
yea im speaking from their perspective
and tbh, considering the insane money that goes into dev-ing AAA, let alone their mammoth marketing budgets, i wouldnt be surprised if they still lost money, or barely broke even, on those moderate successes
to put it into sparts: the AAA formula is to swing for the fences on literally every pitch and also to buy all their opponents best pitchers and then chop their hands off
imo this is dumb as fug, as you can easily have years in between dongers. so then they end up sitting there for ages w their thumbs up their asses, just burning through cash on hand/selling assets etc.
sure, activision is good for it, but then you add in this news, that theyre going literally all-in on cowadoody, and i can smell trouble.
CoD has been declining in popularity for a while now. sure, no matter what itll probably sell at least decent. but with all the eggs in that basket theyre gonna need more than just "decent". they need a GTA5 that they can load with microtransactions.
tl;dr idk wtf they could be thinking tbph
