Guardian - Triple A game development never really stops. Studios crunch for months to make release deadlines, then a few weeks later, everyone is back in the office brainstorming the next instalment.

Make a new engine and I'll be interested.

Company that makes the most money on a franchise puts in the least amount of money/work.

How fucked up is that???

And here I was thinking.....ohh yeah they will make a new engine for the next generation of consoles.

They will be using this same engine in the next 20 years!!

I think i am finished with the series, it's release after release. It's really starting to get old.

This game is quite honestly designed for people with ADHD and underage kids.

What other game rewards you for being bad at it?

And then "classy violence" gtfo.

The "cost of realism" is 60 FPS which was their excuse last generation too.

This excuse is invalid, because even with the new consoles, the best they could pull off looked like it ran on a 360.

Yeah, i used to play call of duty, then i started to realize kids are playing this and why parents let them is a mystery to me.
