Raven Software has been working on Call of Duty games ever since Black Ops 1. The studio has been on the sidelines helping lead developer in different ways. This year, the studio is working on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare remastered for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC.
The studio is more than talented enough to play the lead role on a Call of Duty game. In fact, when asked about if they would like to lead a COD game in the future, David Pellas, Raven Software’s Studio Director instantly said “yes.”
Being able to work on the most successful game every year, that’s something Raven has been able to do for a long time
Speaking about what kind of COD it would be, Pellas said that they would love to work on a modern-era and time frame based shooter.
It would be the gameplay first. Boy we sure do like the modern time period. So, you know what, we haven’t even really discussed that. But I can tell you that our team is we are all in on this game and this time period feels so good.
And I think given that we had AW (Advanced Warfare) which was slight future, Black Ops 3 which was a little bit further future, and now we have Infinite Warfare which is very far future, I think there are be a good group of people at Raven that are like ‘hey what if we were to bring this back to modern times.’ So I would say that that’s probably where we would start.
We would go with what the team is excited about today and that’s definitely modern.
Raven Software taking the lead will allow one of the studios working on COD to take a break and juice up its creative sides. Working on the same for years can lead to fatigue so a studio coming on can beneficial for the franchise.
