The Call of Duty video game franchise is one of the most popular and profitable in history. Over the past 15+ years, what started as a well-executed World War II shooter has changed completely, with games exploring anything from the Vietnam War to the farthest space limits. Call of Duty games typically has thrilling single-player campaigns and a fiercely competitive multiplayer mode, regardless of the setting or plot. There are more titles in development, including Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 sequels, so Call of Duty players have a lot to look forward to.
We’ll only include the essential games on this list, which entails leaving out spinoffs and streamlined games launched for older console generations. Because some just outperformed others, we’ve classified them from passable to excellent. Thanks to the Call of Duty 2 video game, which is still well-liked today, sales of the Xbox 360 increased dramatically in 2005. Unfortunately, call of Duty 3 did not perform as effectively as its predecessor. Given that Infinity Ward had lofty goals for its release, it pains us to rank Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare poorly: in place of a linear, mission-by-mission structure, the game’s campaign allowed players to select from various side goals.
Being the first game in the series to be made accessible on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S makes Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a remarkable entry. With numerous references to the first Black Ops games, it ultimately included a ton of material for both multiplayer and zombies. Due to its many recognizable aspects, particularly in the Multiplayer mode, Call of Duty: Vanguard is an intriguing installment in the franchise. It takes place during World War II, a drawback because Call of Duty has featured that era far too frequently. One of the beautiful things about Vanguard is the degree of customization since you may use up to 10 attachments on most weapons.
