Sledgehammer Games took the opportunity of a Game Developers Conference 2014 panel to release an image showing an in-game character model for their upcoming Call of Duty title.
Having been confirmed to be “actual in-game characters” and not to be confused with rendered CGI; it seems like Sledgehammer is fulfilling its promise of going for a “next-gen first” approach with the game.
According to earlier statements passed by the studio’s co-founder Glen Schofield, the team is focusing development on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Sledgehammer is looking to bring us the “most ambitions, most creative game [they’ve] ever made.” Then again we hear the same claim being made for every Call of Duty title out there.
The new Call of Duty is scheduled to release this fall and will likely show up during E3 2014. It has been in development for nearly three years as part the new development cycle for the series.
