CoD community votes on most desired sequel and the results may surprise you

Call of Duty has a storied history with games spanning decades and tackling all manner of different timelines. One fan wanted to hear the community's thoughts on their most desired sequel from the franchise's long tenure; the results may surprise you.

Reddit user Allan_Breno jumped onto the Call of Duty subreddit to ask other fans which of the listed games they would like to see have a sequel. The list included Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, Infinite Warfare, Black Ops 3, World War II, and Modern Warfare 3 (2011).

Tallying up the votes causes Call of Duty Ghosts to win by a large margin, with Infinite Warfare taking second place, narrowly beating out Advanced Warfare in third. This small poll was a surprising eye-opener; each of the medalists had previously been unpopular Call of Duty games that were criticized and denounced by the majority of fans. But like fine wine, age has certainly helped players appreciate these games for what they are: great FPS games with some of the best campaigns in the series.

Call of Duty Ghosts being the most wanted sequel in this list of games is only surprising for one reason: it is more requested than Infinite Warfare. I enjoyed Ghosts and while it wasn't perfect and had its fair share of plot holes, it condensed the Call of Duty action-man story into a character-driven narrative that was refreshing to see.

Infinite Warfare was one of the most hated games at launch reaching over 3 million dislikes and became YouTube's second most disliked video in 2016. Despite the backlash from players, many gave the game a chance, discovering a top-tier campaign that shouldn't be slept on. I personally adore Infinite Warfare and its character-driven story and many more should give this diamond in the rough another chance.

User TGB_Skeletor has a great take: "Infinite Warfare should've been its own IP." If Activision had committed to that approach it may have spawned an entirely new line of FPS games that rivals Call of Duty in an alternate timeline.

While Advanced Warfare wasn't at the top of my list of best campaigns, its take on mobility and exo-suits in Multiplayer and Zombies was a nice idea that just didn't stick the landing. Since AW had the giant boots to fill of its predecessors there's little wonder it wasn't well-received by fans. Suddenly, we went from Captain Price and Yuri with boots on the ground, to bouncing around in exo-suits and wall-running. The shock to the system for Call of Duty players is potentially what soured the taste of this game, but now that we've all aged a good degree players are wondering if the games were all that bad.

Maybe it's time for Activision to take another look at the futuristic shooter genre and learn from their previous mistakes.

That's all we have on this small community vote. If you're looking for similar content check out Warzone’s Urzikstan rumored to not get ranked mode and players aren’t happy, CoD has used up all its goodwill and players are hesitant to commit to buying Black Ops 6, and more on Pro Game Guides.
