Call of Duty: MW3 T-Shirt 2 - Medium Product Details
Released on 08-Nov-2011
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim have led the UK all-formats chart in a blockbuster week for gaming.
Topping the rankings was Modern Warfare 3, which achieved the highest-grossing videogame launch in UK history, beating the record set last year by its predecessor Call of Duty: Black Ops.
More impressively still, it was the biggest launch of any entertainment title ever, outselling the opening weekends of the four most recent Harry Potter movies combined.
In second place, Skyrim was no slouch either, notching up the fifth best launch numbers of the year and becoming Bethesda Softworks' biggest ever release in the process.
Next week will see another avalanche of triple-A titles hitting stores, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Need for Speed: The Run, Saints Row: The Third and Super Mario 3D Land.
Way back before Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came along and turned a popular World War 2 shooter into an unstoppable combat behemoth, powered by the screams of a billion bullets, Activision was looking at expanding the series in a very different direction.
Revealed in an interview with The Verge, Call of Duty: Devil's Brigade was to be a more strategic third-person squad-based action adventure, set in wartime Italy, and based on a real international combat unit made up of Canadian and American soldiers. The game was to be developed by Z-Axis Games, headed up by Jason VandenBerghe, Scott Bandy and Trevor Jalowitz, three EA veterans.
Nine months into production, however, Activision pulled the plug on the project following the runaway success of Modern Warfare and its corporate merger with Vivendi. A 15 minute gameplay demo was the only lasting evidence that Devil's Brigade existed.
That's not to say we'll never see a third-person shooter in the Call of Duty series. As recently as 2009 Sledgehammer Games was working on something very similar, before being asked to help out on Modern Warfare 3. "We came on board to make a third person action adventure game, in the Call of Duty franchise, and we were working on it about six months," Sledgehammer boss Glen Schofield said in an interview last year. "They were originally working on an extension of the Call of Duty franchise into an action/adventure genre and that's a game I still want to play," Eric Hirshberg, Activision's publishing chief, was quoted as saying.
For now, we've still got the amazing Modern Warfare 3 and whatever Call of Duty title is lined up for later this year. Any guesses?
