Activision doesn't think fans are tired of yearly Call of Duty installments

Call of Duty: Ghosts sales have been rather sluggish when compared to previous entries. Could that have something to do with franchise fatigue? Not at all, says Activision's Eric Hirshberg. He believes the lackluster sales were due to the next-gen transition.

"We've been pretty transparent all year that we think, because of the challenges of the console transition year, that that was likely in the short-term. I think it would be a mistake to conflate the challenges of the console transition year with any indications about the health of the franchise."
