Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Xbox 360 and PS3 not Being Developed by Sledgehammer
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare announcement came last week and since then, new information on the project keeps popping up. Now, the latest issue of Gameinformer reveals that the SledgeHammer Studios will not develop the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version of the game to focus on the next-gen.
PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners don’t have to worry about Activision forgetting them, as Advanced Warfare will be brought to the last generation of consoles as well. Sledgehammer will not be handling the development, however. Activision has yet to announce the studio behind these versions of the game.
This announcement could be related to the rumor that circulated earlier this year, which stated that maybe High Moon Studios are working on the next Call of Duty Game.
The rumor started after a listing was found for a Senior Lighting Artist to work with the Radiant Engine, which is used to power all the Call of Duty titles. High Moon Studios are famously known for creating the Transformers Trilogy and Deadpool.
This kind of development seems to be the trend nowadays as Respawn Entertainment outsourced the development of Xbox 360 version of their popular FPS title Titanfall and now is Activision doing the same with the next installment in the series.
We just hope that the gameplay or storyline of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not compromised, just to make it work on the last-gen consoles.
