Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Leaks Upset Developer

By   /   Oct 27, 2014

With not too much time left until Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is ready for launch, some details for the multiplayer modes have been leaked. During a stream from user Anfuny29, a new killstreak has been uncovered, called a DNA Bomb.

The live stream for  Anfuny29’s early gameplay of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was eventually taken down, as well as the channel, so there’s no original footage confirming this news. A Youtube user, TmarTn, reports on the news of the DNA Bomb instead.

Apparently, the bomb is launched as a 30 Gunstreak, which is a killstreak that only uses a gun for consecutive kills, so no melee weapons and such are included in the counter. A bomb spreads a green mist over the map for a minute or so, before dissipating.

Additionally, there would be an option to turn Paintball Effects on or off and camouflage patterns were shown a well.

In response, developer Sledgehammer Games’ co-founder, Glen Schofield, understandably reacted with frustration to the reveals. On Twitter, Schofield noted:

According to Schofield, the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare code would have been stolen from at some point. Responding to a fan that said the release of info is a good thing, the co-founder stated:

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be out next week, on November 3 for North America and the next day elsewhere. We shouldn’t tell you, but don’t steal games, as much as you’d like to play them already.
