article imageSledgehammer Games feels 'Advanced Warfare' will be revolutionary

By Stan Rezaee     Jul 31, 2014 in Entertainment
It has been a common criticism among gamers that the 'Call of Duty' series has lacked innovation for sometime, but Sledgehammer Games wants to assure fans that 'Advanced Warfare' will be a different experience.
During an interview with Dean Takahashi of GameBeat (the video game branch of VentureBeat), Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey explains that the three-year rotation has allowed the team to explore new possibilities for adding innovation.
Condrey stated in the interview, "With three years and a new engine and a new generation of hardware and a new brand, you’ll see this is not the same old Call of Duty."
Advanced Warfare will be the first game in the series not developed by either Infantry Ward or Treyarch Studios, hence Condrey wants to explore a new frontier of innovation. Not much details have been revealed but based on the trailers, the gameplay will require players to use the features of an exoskeleton suit along with a verity of futuristic weapons and tools.
Another major factor that has helped Sledgehammer games has been the experiences they gained by working on Modern Warfare 3. At the same time they have been hiring talent from respectable studios like Visceral, Valve, Naughty Dog, and Crystal Dynamics.
Condery also emphasized that creating an original story will also be a major factor in setting the game apart from previous titles. The plot is expected to be more emotionally driven than previous titles while the performance of Kevin Spacey has been highly praised by critics and fans.
With a three-year production cycle and an experienced team, Sledgehammer Games' biggest challenge will still be to make a game that will actually set it self apart from its predecessors. Many gamers still fear that the final could be another rehashed game like Call of Duty: Ghosts, which was modestly praised by critics but was universally panned by gamers.
This interview was published around the same time the special editions of the game became available for pre-order and Activision released the campaign story trailer.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be the eleventh game in the popular series that has sold over 100 million copies and on average has 40 million active players a month. The game will be released on November 4 for all consoles consoles and the PC.
