Sledgehammer Games’ upcoming first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not the same old Call of Duty, Its a brand new franchise within Call of Duty, according to Sledgehammer co-founders Michael Condrey & Glen Schofield.
“With three years and a new engine and a new generation of hardware and a new brand, you’ll see this is not the same old Call of Duty, Michael Condrey told Venturebeat at Sledgehammer Games headquarters.
We had the people, the resources, and the time. This has the scale and the scope of the equivalent of four Hollywood movies in it.
It has hundreds of hours of multiplayer gameplay. It has full cooperative mode. It takes an army of industry vets to create this kind of content.”
“We really upgraded the characters with a new facial system. We are lighting the game in a new way. All of it is new,” said Glen Schofield.
It’s next-generation, and it’s 40 years in the future. There is really nothing you can borrow. This game had to be done from scratch. This is really a brand new franchise within Call of Duty. It’s a new intellectual property.”
Condrey adds, “We’re really grateful because we had a chance to go after the next-generation experience and really innovate. It was time to give you a new experience.
We want to make sure that people realize it’s not a turn of the crank. The amount of research we put into this game is insane — the books, the articles, the scientists we talk to, the trips we’ve taken, the people we’ve brought in.”
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set to be released for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 4, 2014.
