If the game comes out to be good, it's a miracle. They have disappointed us so much with the last few cod releases that I don't even think this game will be good. In my eyes they are making new cods to make profit, not to make a great game.
Well yeah, they are a business after all.
However, usually making great games = more sales = more profits.
The main problem is that there is a big difference between what competitive gamers see as a great game and what mainstream gamers see as a great game.
The mainstream gamers have the numbers, so they cater to them. Sucks for us, but it makes sense for them. We have to hope that smaller studios are willing to fill the niche (like Battalion 1944 hopefully).
