15 things you (probably) didn't know about Call of Duty

In 2003, a plucky new World War II shooter emerged from a little-known video game developers Infinity Ward, boldly claiming it could revolutionise the PC's first person shooter scene. Eleven years on and Call of Duty has done more than that, growing into a franchise capable of bringing in more cash than a summer of Hollywood blockbusters.

As we eagerly count down the days until its latest instalment Advanced Warfare arrives on consoles (that's 4 November, so still some way off), we dug through the treasure trove of facts, numbers and achievements that this beloved series has given the world of gaming. Grab a gun and prepare to learn something new about one of the most successful video game franchises of all time.
