A pretty bold statement from the relativity new company, Sledgehammer Games. Call of Duty is one of, if not the largest franchises in Gaming now. That said, Sledgehammer Games are no stranger to success with the Bond games, Dead Space, and of course they collaborated with Infinity Ward for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This is Sledgehammer Games first solo camp, so to speak, when it comes to Call of Duty.
So What’s The Plan
When Infinity Ward wrapped up the Modern Warfare story after three entries, it started an entirely new universe with Ghosts. With a new generation of consoles upon us, it’s time for the series to be brought forward once again. Developer Sledgehammer Games has a bold vision for the future of the franchise, in terms of both storyline and the brand.
Advanced Warfare is the newest universe in Call of Duty, and it begins in 2052. Former Dead Space developers Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey (along with their talented team at Sledgehammer Games) have taken all what learned from their collaboration with Infinity Ward’s military knowledge–while also speaking with government and scientists–on the future of weaponry and what route or road that might go down.
What I Think
Well I lost interest in Call of Duty after Modern Warfare 2 just seemed more recycled every time. I haven’t even played Ghosts, but with Sledgehammer Games being the new primary developer and a good track record, it sounds like they are taking the best of Modern Warfare 2 and Dead Space, putting it in a shaker, and there you have a new IP. So come November 5th, will you buy in to Sledgehammer Games new take on the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare?
