Advanced Warfare Is “Not The Same Old Call of Duty”

According to developer Sledgehammer Games, this year’s Call of Duty title Advanced Warfare is “not the same old Call of Duty.” In an interview with VentureBeat, studio co-founder Michael Condrey explained as to why that is.

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,” Condrey said. “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,” he said. “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.”

Sledgehammer Games is so confident in the game’s originality and freshness, that it thinks of it as a new intellectual property.

“We really upgraded the characters with a new facial system. We are lighting the game in a new way. All of it is new,” Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield said. “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.”

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will hit store shelves this November for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
