The Call of Duty video game franchise has once again taken over the gaming world with the release of the latest hot-selling chapter in the franchise: Call of Duty Ghosts.
But you might be surprised just how poplar the game has become in NBA circles, particularly with Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert.
According to Activision reps, there are more than 100 current players who are big into the Call of Duty franchise, including one of the most diehard fans, the Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert. In fact, he was invited to be a Call of Duty correspondent at E3 this past summer in Los Angeles, and Activision’s producers gave him a special touch in the new game “Ghosts”: his own customized gun.
The report also includes a list of the biggest NBA names to play popular shooter, including Chris Bosh, Stephen Curry, Kevin Garnett, Paul George, James Harden, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams and Nick Young.
We had to include Young in there, because everyone knows he likes to shoot…. a lot.
The latest installment of arguably the most popular video game in the world can be purchased currently for the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U and PlayStation 3. This Friday, it will become available for the Playstation 4, giving fans the first taste of the Call of Duty franchise on the next generation of video game consoles.
Have no fear though Xbox fans, as you too will be able to experience next-generation Call of Duty on the Xbox One when it releases in less than two weeks.
Following the game’s initial release, Activision announced they’d sold more than $1 billion of Call of Duty Ghosts into retail stores worldwide as of day one.
