Call of Duty: Ghosts – Next-Gen or Not?

MP1st - In recent articles here on MP1st, there seems to be a lot of controversy about what makes a new game engine and what doesn’t. Is the engine of Call of Duty: Ghosts new, or is it a copy/paste job from the last generation of console hardware? In a very strict sense, no. It is not a brand new engine. But that in itself is not a bad thing. The actual answer is, as usual, a lot more nuanced.

Nope not next gen.They even said its still the shame shitty engine.

It's a new engine on Next-Gen consoles

MariaHelFutura1852d ago

No. They actually said it's a modified last gen engine. If you showed me the Call of Duty presentation at the Xbone reveal and told me it was current gen, I would have believed you.

I wouldn't dare calling a game that still uses a modified Quake 3 engine Next-Gen...

Boody-Bandit1852d ago

It's not even this (PS3/360) gen. They are using the same engine they have since COD inception. It's a modified quake engine. I'm sure some will disagree but you will be disagreeing with a fact.

Like I already said a few times this week on N4G concerning COD:Ghost, "COD fans deserve better than this and Activision made way too much money over the years not to give it to them."

check this image out see how outdated COD ghosts is and it can be done this gen. Pathetic.

On one hand, it is being released for next-gen consoles. On the other hand, it can be run on current-gen consoles.

Soley because it can be run on current-gen consoles, I'd have to say that it's more current-gen than next-gen.

I'll go as far to say that next COD title after this one will be "next-gen".. this seems very current.

just before I saw the paycheck which had said $6787, I accept that my cousin woz like they say realey taking home money in there spare time on their computer.. there best friend haz done this 4 only 21 months and recently took care of the loans on their apartment and got a great new Ford. we looked here, KEP2.COM

JsonHenry1852d ago

I will say not next gen because we all know the X360 was probably the lead dev platform. Yes I know it is a "new" engine but that really doesn't mean much when it is being held back by old hardware. There will not be enough PS4/X1s in people's hands this year to spend too much time on making the next gen versions what they could be. Instead you will probably get the exact same game but running at a higher resolution and probably using higher rez textures.

Will it look better than current gen? yes. Will it be next gen? Not a chance.
