I think we all have those certain games we could play for hours and hours without getting bored. Well, in 2021, that game was Call of Duty for a lot of PlayStation players, who reportedly spent 70% of their time solely playing CoD.
It’s not surprising, as Call of Duty is one of the biggest gaming franchises on the planet, with loads of games across several platforms, all of which have their own charm or appeal to a wide variety of players. The fast-paced, arcade shooting gameplay can be addictive, and recent games have adopted a live-service business model, which brings regular updates and patches to keep things fresh and interesting.

“2021 wasn’t that bad but now in 2023 Call Of Duty is so s***”
Call of Duty’s popularity continues to grow, and it’s also been making plenty of headlines recently, as Xbox is currently in the process of acquiring CoD publisher Activision, provided the deal can survive the ongoing Microsoft v FTC trial.
Once the deal goes through, Xbox would be able to put CoD games, both past and future, onto their subscription service Xbox Game Pass. They’d also be able to make future CoD games exclusive to Xbox consoles, though Xbox head Phil Spencer has repeatedly said this won’t be the case.
In other news, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III is expected to drop later this year, with many fans anticipating an announcement over the summer. Fans have been speculating what could be included in the game, including multiplayer maps originally scheduled for release in Modern Warfare II (2022), as well as the potential return of the previous game’s villain…
