Treyarch kicks some Infinity Ward butt

Infinity Ward has always been considered the maestros of the Call of Duty-series, with their latest addition CoD: Modern Warfare reaching staggering sales and to this day being strong in the multiplayer scene. Treyarch on the other hand didn’t receive any overwhelming credit their CoD2: Big Red One and CoD3. That’s why the anticipations for CoD: World at War wasn’t sky high at first. Sure, it had a flamethrower and was built on the Modern Warfare-engine, but it had gone back to World War II and the developer’s earlier achievements were still lurking in our heads.

Dear readers, we were all wrong. The gameplay videos looked great, the early reviews gave eleven thumbs up and Treyarch is even handing us zombies to set on fire. To further set things in stone, the first week’s sales showed that CoD 5 has outsold CoD 4 with a 2 to 1 ratio. The game is topping the sales charts on every platform in the UK, and Christmas is still over a month away. Activision Blizzard are bound for some serious cash flow considering they’ve also released World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King.
