Will the absence Call Of Duty games harm the success of PS5?

Apparently, Infinity Ward will be releasing a brand new Call Of Duty game sometime later this year. There are many people who are hoping that the new Call Of Duty game will appear at E3 2022 this upcoming summer; mainly because we have yet to see an official trailer of the game. While this upcoming Call Of Duty game is likely to remain exclusively on the Xbox Series X; many are wondering how Microsoft’s decision to purchase Activision Blizzard will affect the sales of the PlayStation 5. The Call Of Duty franchise has been very popular since the mid 00’s. Even though CoD: Vanguard from ‘21 was the best selling third party game on both the PS4 and Nintendo Switch that year; it paled in comparison to the likes of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare from 2019. In terms of sales Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare ‘19 reached over 30 copies in sales similar to that of Black Ops I from 2010. The Call of Duty franchise is quite possibly the best thing going right now as it relates to the first person shooter genre. The absence of Call Of Duty games on the PS5 could definitely influence current generation gamers to purchase the Xbox Series X more in the future. However, you look at the best selling video games on the PS4 and you will discover Sony published titles like God Of War, Marvel’s Spider Man and Uncharted 4 were among the best sellers for that console. However, the average price of the PS5 could be anywhere between $500-$1000 depending on where it’s purchased. Some speculate that Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard could potentially force Sony to drop the price of the PlayStation 5 before the end of 2022.
