Bob Puzon, GameStop’s executive vice president of merchandising, says that the forthcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts is on track to be the most pre-ordered title of the year. Puzon also said that they have found that there is hesitation compared to past COD pre-orders as gamers are unsure which platform they will be playing on with the upcoming launch of Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Call of Duty is an entertainment juggernaut and cultural phenomenon. We are excited for the upcoming release of the new instalment of this blockbuster franchise. We look forward to celebrating the worldwide November launch of this great game that is on track to be the most pre-ordered title of the year. Our quantitative consumer research indicates that hesitation amongst past COD pre-orderers is primarily due to not knowing which platform they will be playing on, which is natural at this time in the console transition.”
