Two Studios Will Be Developing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Activision has revealed that a separate studio will be developing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for last-gen consoles, while Sledgehammer Games will be focusing entirely on current-gen systems. This same type of development practice was done with Titanfall, which saw two studios, Respawn Entertainment and Bluepoint Games, developing for different consoles.

In the publisher’s press release, no specific platforms were mentioned, but retailers are listing the game for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC. Nintendo’s Wii U is doubtful.

This three-year development cycle that Activision has been able to afford its studios, more currently Sledgehammer Games, has allowed the studio to  create a “near photorealistic world unlike any Call of Duty before.”

“With the expanded production capabilities, Sledgehammer Games is able to create an astonishing new, next generation experience, featuring an array of technical advancements from the sights and sounds that create a near photorealistic world unlike any Call of Duty before, to new performance capture and facial animation technologies that deliver lifelike characters, to a rich and immersive story that brings the fiction to life,” Activision said.
