Margin Makers: Guide to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare merchandise

It's that time of the year: the latest Call of Duty just launched.

As with every CoD, Infinite Warfare comes with its fair share of merchandise and guest stars.

The latest names added to an already long list of cameos are Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and actor Danny McBride. They join racing champion Lewis Hamilton, 80s legend David Hasselhoff and Games of Thrones' Kit Harington.

The bar for success is high this year, as Infinite Warfare's predecessor, Black Ops III, was a huge success. No other Call of Duty has claimed as many No.1s in the UK as Black Ops III. In the US, 85 per cent of the PS4s sold during Q1 were sold with a copy of the title.

Infinite Warfare's Week One sales were nearly 50 per cent down compared with Black Ops III, but what could contribute to its success in the long run is the fact that it's launching alongside a remastered version of fan-favourite Modern Warfare, which was initially released in 2007.

Players who purchase Infinite Warfare's Legacy Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition or Legacy Pro Edition will thus have the opportunity to enjoy the Modern Warfare experience on current-gen hardware for the first time.

But Modern Warfare Remastered has brought some controversy to Call of Duty this year. Publisher Activision revealed in October that Infinite Warfare's disc must be inserted to play Modern Warfare Remastered. This obviously only impacts the boxed Xbox One and PS4 versions but the statement was enough to anger the fans hoping to buy the bundle only to play Modern Warfare and then sell on Infinite Warfare standalone.

But with the amount of accessories launching alongside Activision's title, retailers shouldn't worry, as merchandise is always a good way to attract customers in this competitive market.
