Game news Call of Duty Vanguard: the game already rated as the biggest sale of 2021 in the US, analyst says
Call of Duty and profitability is a love story that has been going on for a long, long time now. While the next installment in the saga, Vanguard, has not even been concretely unveiled yet, a famous analyst of the video game industry is predicting its future best-seller status for the year 2021.
After months and months of rumor, Call of Duty: Vanguard finally became official a few days ago with the help of a first video teaser. It will therefore go well during World War II, and should focus on the Pacific while bringing a large dose of new features to Call of Duty: Warzone. It is also in this last royal battle that the reveal will take place on Thursday evening.
Where the FPS is already strong is that it manages to impose itself in the eyes of some when we have not yet seen a single gameplay image. According to Mat Piscatella, a renowned analyst whose job is precisely to decipher and predict the video game industry for the NPD Group, Call of Duty: Vanguard will be the best-selling title of the year 2021 in the United States.
In fact, his bet could not be more reliable when we take a look at the previous iterations: almost every year Call of Duty installment has established itself as number 1 on the charts (even the opuses criticized by some) with astronomical scores. Because there are still exceptions, we must therefore note the year 2013 and 2018, where a certain Grand Theft Auto V and a Red Dead Redemption II came to break the tradition to take the crown. And again, the adventure of Arthur Morgan is believed to have won the battle because the sales of the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, released the same year, were not recorded.
Obviously, we’ll wait until the end of the year to decide, but Mat Piscatella almost seems to be enjoying his prediction himself, which according to him has a good chance of materializing to the detriment of being very original …
