Mark Rubin has revealed that there is a whole studio working on just the second screen experience for the upcoming installment into the Call Of Duty Franchise, Call Of Duty Ghosts.
So that makes 3 studios on 1 game!? Fish AI Studio Multiplayer Studio Second Screen Studio and no studio for last year's COD campaign cause they just use the same one
That's actually pretty funny +1.
Well this all but CONFIRMS it for the Wii U. Which is nice. I think a hardcore shooter would help the sales of the system later this year. I like the idea of an off screen experience. I have a wife who loves to watch tv shows and 4 kids that like to watch cartoons. Makes getting some quality gaming in at any time a lot more easy. Granted i'm not a big fan of COD but its nice to have the option there.
Pretty sure it has more to do with PS4/Vita and Xbox1/Surface along with both systems having the ability to use a Smartphone or Tablet as a "Second Screen" for convienence and added features.
Sorry buddy, but that isn't really a confirmation... I mean sure, they have mad Wii CoD before, but with the low sales, it's kind of iffy...
3 studios and nobody bothers to make a new engine...
Exactly what I was thinking.
How can anyone disagree with you. If they spent as much time developing the engine as they do adding un-needed features, we could have an amazing game. Get the basics right first and then add the extras later.
What bugs me the most is that Call of Duty is just such a sound franchise. Sure, the engine is still pretty much the same as before, but I dare anyone tell me that COD: Modern Warfare 1 wasn't one of the best military shooters they've ever played. I had a ton of fun with Black Ops as well, I loved the plethora of online modes, reminded me of the quirky modes found in games like Goldeneye and Timesplitters (Slappers only!). While they have milked the franchise nearly dry with a lack of overall "improvements", I still say that COD games have a damned fun, albeit short single player, and addictive multiplayer modes. I got into serious online gaming around the time Unreal Tournament 2004 came out, then I transitioned to Xbox live with Mech Assault, Crimson Skies, and Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. I would not call myself a fanboy of the franchise because I thought MW2 ( in particular) was one of the most unpolished games I've ever seen, and I've yet to play MW3 or BLOPS2, but this blind hatred for Call of Duty is odd. Sales alone, means that there are (more then a few) people purchasing the game, yet no one wishes to admit it. It's absolutely hysterical. The franchise deserves to be here.
dare I say it stole, nay, borrowed the concept.from e3 with Ubisofts the division and dice's bf4? still not worth the buy or consideration
Yeah cause they haven't had a companion app on smartphone/tablet since MW3 that works for both MW3 and BO2. They obviously just thought of the "Second Screen" idea after E3.... Maybe atleast have a clue before attempting to troll, makes all the other trolls look bad.
k I own n love both mw3 n bo2 an app is just stats and "bragging rights" on paper no more. both cod n battlefield have apps they are neither fun nor helpful in game/-real time try again friend #LongLivePlay
Try again k, Not like you can adjust your classes, join/follow tournaments/contest, extra content (guides to everything, player videos/screenshots/emblems) and has more stats and info then the game itself or anything. It's a mobile version of ELITE which is way more functional then Battlelog which has been 2nd to do everything. The "Second Screen" wasn't/isn't relevant till this upcomming gen. It's an obvious evolution and something they had planned well ahead of time. To assume its obvious to so many other devs as a useful tool but somehow COD devs just now jumped onto it is absurd. Maybe you're not a troll but instead an ill informed over opinionated sad case for a gamer who would prefer to spout unfounded nonsense instead of actually leaving a half thought out comment. #LongLiveLogicalThinking
I wasn't very clear I realize now. In my 2nd post I am more speaking ELITE compared to Battlelog in first paragraph and not the apps. I expect more improvements and features comming to Mobile apps (for both) as well with each game as they have been doing. Both are both useable in game/on console in greater amounts.
indeed misinformed more like sick of hearing "brand new game engine" (lie) evolutionary (propaganda-same ol sish different copy and paste) I hold no personal preference on any fps, but your candid cod fanboyism is laughable. I love games. but to deny my opinion as valid is about illogical as your predictable rebuttal. you make no sense. heres a HUG LITTLE FELLA @oschino well said. both games are awesome and the apps are a stepping stone before.next gen goes full interactive
