The fifth edition of the Gamoloco Dataviz Monday Review features a comparison between Call of Duty Advanced Warfare (2014) and Call of Duty Black Ops 3 (2015).
The infographic shows a massive growth in terms of viewership numbers (hours watched) and indicates that Call of Duty has the potential to become a game title which might be capable of growing its viewership over time.
Viewership numbers: Call of Duty Advanced Warfare versus Call of Duty Black Ops 3
Message from the author
“That is impressive growth. And for one of the biggest gaming licences ever. How could one explain it?… And it’s not only the growth, what could prove even more important is what seems to be a steady upward trend across the past few weeks, showing BO3 has a chance at becoming one of the very few titles that manage to grow their viewership over time.
The main reason behind this burst looks like it could be – you guessed it – esports and the Call of Duty World League produced by ESL which just started a few weeks ago. One should also take into account the sheer game quality, since Call of Duty games are developed by various studios, as well as the fact that a lot of COD streams were hosted on MLG.tv instead of Twitch last year.
In any case it definitely looks like it’s going to be an exciting year for Call of Duty gamers and fans.”
