Electronic Arts' (NASDAQ:EA) Battlefield 4 is going through a rough patch. The company said last week that it was pausing expansion of the game until it can sort out the gameplay issues that it's been having since launching the title on gaming consoles.
In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos says that this hiccup translates into more good news for Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) and its Call of Duty franchise. Despite some lukewarm reviews, the newest chapter, Ghosts, is already selling well into the holiday season, and EA's stumble gives Activision the inside track to continued dominance over the shooter genre as the industry makes the leap onto the next-generation consoles.
