If a game cannot stand up on SP alone it isn't worth sixty bucks. Besides, a series doesn't have to be about SP to have a good one. Look at CoD 4. That had an epic SP.

And MW2 outsold the lot of 'em. But we can both agree that MW2 is blisteringly awful.
You don't need to make a good game to sell a lot of copies these days. All you need is the same bland, boring, cookie-cutter multiplayer with a new skin on it, promises of DirectX 11/big maps/many players/prestiges/whatever, and you're in the black. Literally. Dice is going the "Big maps, many players, DX11" route at the moment, and the sad thing is it will work.
Idiots and competitives will pay out the nose for a reskin of something they already have several copies of. They don't care how good the game is, they don't care that it's just a clone of half their existing library, they just want it because it's the new one. It's what keeps those of us who want a good game from getting any good games.
