The latest instalments in the rival modern military shooter franchises Call of Duty and Battlefield mark the end of an era, reckons Avalanche Studios’ Christofer Sundberg.

The creative director took to Twitter and said, “I predict the end of an era with #CoDGhosts and #BF4.”

“I don't believe in the future for CoD and I believe that BF will live on as an MP game”.

When asked if Call of Duty couldn’t also live on as a multiplayer-only game, Sundberg replied, “I don't think there is room for both unless they are drastically different and publishers find new ways to monetise the players.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 are out now.
