Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has caused quite a stir in the gaming industry since its announcement and from what we have seen so far, it looks really awesome.
However, the developers are facing a problem where many people believe that the game will stay the same even with the new studio.
In an interview with Game Informer, the senior development director Aaron Halon said that the studio wants to put its own spin on the game:
We really look closely at a lot of different things. The pacing is different, things that are – there’s very core things that Call of Duty [does] that won’t change: 60 frames per second, the moments and things in it that are very memorable in the game. But our take on it – our spin on it is different.
Sledgehammer seems quite keen on delivering the experience that is different and unique from the work done by Treyarch and Infinity Ward. The Co-Founder Michael Condrey explained:
Yeah, we’re really looking forward to sharing more because we think we have some meaningful way to make this franchise feel like it’s got its Sledgehammer mark on it.
The problem of game becoming stagnant may not be the case with this one because the game is set in the future and now is the chance for the developers to take series into a new direction by bringing in some new groundbreaking modes.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set to release for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on 4th of November.
Do you think Sledgehammer Studios will be able to bring new life to the franchise?
