Many Call of Duty players aren’t gamers, says Call of Duty: Ghosts executive producer Mark Rubin.
Speaking with OXM, Rubin said large numbers of the series’ fans play no other game except Call of Duty, and that the launch of a new console generation was unlikely to impact on their behaviour.
“Regardless of platform – people’s gaming habits aren’t going to change just because there’s a new platform,” Rubin said. “We have an enormous amount of players who are more in the casual game space, but they play a lot.
“It’s kind of a weird, ironic thing to say. They aren’t hardcore gamers, or even gamers, but they play Call of Duty every night, and those guys are going to continue to play regardless of platform. So I think not only will we continue to engage with that existing player base, but we’ll take next gen and see how far we can go with it.”
Call of Duty: Ghosts is coming to current gen and PC on November 5. It is also a release window title for next gen consoles.
