It’s a very strange world we live in where the next iteration of Call of Duty seems to be more refreshing and more evolutionary than the next Battlefield, but that’s the world we’re living in right now. While Battlefield Hardline has been accused of being little more than an expansion for Battlefield 4, most who’ve gone eye-balls on with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare seem genuinely impressed.
The latest Transformers game isn’t being made by the chaps who did the last few excellent ones. After the dismal Deadpool, High Moon Studios was hit with a significant number of layoffs, leading us to speculate that they were downsized to being a jobbing studio; a port factory. That seems to be the case, as they’ll be handling the porting of Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to those now-ancient consoles, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Another year, another Call of Duty. This time, Sledgehammer games gets to show off their hard work, with a game set in the future of 2054. It’s Advanced Warfare and a brand new franchise within Call of Duty to boot. Which means that we can expect a sequel to this adventure, once the dust has settled.
Sledgehammer Games, the studio making this year’s intriguing Call of Duty was started by former Dead Space developers Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey. For a while, they were working on a 3rd-person Call of Duty spinoff. That failed to happen, with the team from Sledgehammer working on Modern Warfare 3 instead. Sledgehammer has now, years later, revealed a little about the binned 3rd-person game.
