Advanced Warfare Will Speak For Itself, Not a Titanfall Rip-off
People have been talking about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare being a total rip-off of Titanfall for the past few months; however, that is not something the developers are worried about.
In fact, they believe that the game itself will prove all these assumptions wrong when the time comes – or so they said in a recent discussion with a fan.
The conversation in question is as follows. A fan commented on the official Twitter profile of Michal Condrey, the co-founder of Sledgehammer Games that ‘no matter how hard you try and try people will always be convinced that Advanced Warfare is a rip-off of Titanfall.’
In response to this, the developer said that they were not worried about any and all such claims because when the people finally play the game they would see the difference as the game ‘will speak for itself.’
@AidanRawr not worried about it. When people play it in Nov, it will speak for itself.

All the fuss started back in May when Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was announced by Sledgehammer Games. Immediately, people had drawn comparisons between the title and Respawn Entertainment’s mech-based Titanfall.
No doubt both the titles had a futuristic setting and involve mechs, but for reasons we will (hopefully) find out later, the developers are confident that they are considerably different.
We have one thing however, the general manager of Sledgehammer had said some time back that when they first heard of Titanfall, it was around two years after the idea of Advanced Warfare was conceived and that they started work on it before Modern Warfare 3!
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is being developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One; look out for it on November 4, 2014.
