Welcome to Pulse Check, every edition we check out a different game that is widely believed to be “dead” to see if there is any sort of development or community activities, for our tenth game lets take a look at Call of Duty Ghosts.
Call of Duty Ghosts is long past being developed. Infinity ward has rightly moved onto new entries in the franchise.
Sadly 7 years on, we have yet to see a Call of Duty Ghosts sequel, despite the cliffhanger ending.
The community for Call of Duty Infinite Warfare is scattered between PS4, Xbox One and PC, without any form of crossplay, the individual communities struggle to maintain any sort of sustainable matchmaking, the PC userbase is particularly small, with less than 200 ccu at peak times, also almost every mode outside of Team Deathmatch entirely devoid of activity.
Why did it Die?
It’s old, and despite having an excellent single-player campaign, it was outshone by the far superior Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, a title which still reaches peaks of 8k+ active users on PC.
The lengthy TTK (time to kill) and large maps contributed to a dwindling userbase, which were used to the faster-paced combat of the previous Call of Duty titles.
Can it be Saved?
Honestly no, It’s long past its sell-by date, and while it’s a fun game, and has some of the best sounding weapons in the franchise, its time to put it to bed.
