Duck Dynasty Game Coming from Call of Duty Publisher

Activision to adapt controversial A&E show for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and 3DS.

149 Comments

Call of Duty publisher Activision and network A&E have teamed up to create a game based on the controversial reality TV show, Duck Dynasty. As you can see in the game's debut trailer above, the main hook of the Duck Dynasty video game is that you can "become a Robertson" through activities like fishing, airboat racing, and of course, duck hunting.

A first-person duck-calling mode is also featured.

The game, which is called Duck Dynasty: The Video Game, launches October 14 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and 3DS. Based on the box art for the 3DS version, it appears it will offer stylized visuals.

Duck Dynasty found itself in hot water late last year when patriarch Phil Robertson made controversial comments about gay people in a media interview. A&E initially suspended Robertson for what he said, but reinstated him just nine days later.

The gameplay from the trailer reminds me of those PC games that used to come for free with a box of cereal.

I like the show, but still can't see this getting that far.


It'll probably turn foul like activision's version of walking dead:survival instinct - only with ducks instead of zombies.

Interesting. I better keep my eye on this game.

Too bad most of the comments consist of SJWs and left-wingers.

You lost me at reality show....people watch the most ridiculous things.

<< LINK REMOVED >> that's the thing - it's not even a reality show! It's a carefully woven tale of a group of upper class country club folks that decided to grow beards, thump bibles, and cash in on the ignorance of an ever-dwindling portion of our population.

I don't see the need to mention Call of Duty. He could've just said Activision.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Because not everyone who watches Duck Dynasty is a avid gamer but nearly everyone has played a Call Of Duty game at some point so having that in the title may draw in some of the Duck Dynasty community. Make's perfect sense.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That's not it. People hate on both, so what better way to get attention? It's clickbait.

If they sell this cheap ($10 arcade game), then I can see them being forgiven on the mobile graphics. By the looks of it, if they go above $20, it will flop...

Guys, I save this for pretty special occasions in which a "stupid valley-girl" expression of disbelief is the appropriate : OMG!?

I'm pretty certain, we as all gamers everywhere, already know this game will be trash.

Seriously...this is going to be a game?

Ah, isn´t this that show about the dangers of inbreeding?

Heard that the reason they first started calling ducks wasn´t to shoot them or eat them but to .... them ;)

Poor poor duckies..

<< LINK REMOVED >> Sort of, they are more yuppy than hillbilly. Look for pictures of the sons and stuff before they joined the show. Because...it's all just a show.

So it's a mini-game collection of some of the hijinks the family has done on the show? At least that's what it looks like to me.

@flyincloud1116 I can imagine Duck Hunt with Call of Duty style kill streaks. That would be hilarious

Joking aside, My dad watches this show. He would probably say something like "Well I'll be" if he heard about this video game.
