Creating your first game on next-gen formats is like an awkward first date, says COD: Ghosts dev

“Take for example Call Of Duty 2 and the way that game looked even compared to even Call Of Duty 4. It’s a significant leap forward. So I think we’ll see something similar – I hope, as a games developer in general, not just of Call Of Duty, to see massive leaps forward as the generation gets more mature.” (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Industry, PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

They're amateurs ;)

And yet that's why every other game coming to next gen looks better then CoD.

Im sure making a game for a new gen isnt easy, but this isn't the first time they've gone to a new generation.

That's what happens when you're not used to having to innovate.

Sounds very coy,look ps4 and xbox1 are stock hardware they are most prob using 75% of their power from the off.....wiiu is custom expect bigger improvements on that over time..
KingDadXVI  +   611d ago
PS4 is mostly off the shelf with some customization while the Xbox One is highly customized. Just take a look at the article at semiaccurate describing what we know so far about the Xbox One SoC.

We all are guilty of projecting ourselfs. (If you know what I mean)

And this statements reeks of "I think next-gen developer is awkward - namely because my game that we've made for next-gen is awkward like a first date"

It says more about how the Dev feels about his own game than it does on next-gen development.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   611d ago
Awkward first dates are for people with poor social skills.

In this case this can be a metaphor that roughly translates to:

"Poorly designed/coding games are by people who have poor programming/design skills."
ZombieKiller  +   611d ago
Lol they left out the part where the Dev continued on and was like "good thing for us were on our 10th date and we SHOULDNT screw up but will anyway because we rushed out the door and left her with the tab last minute"

Game isn't even out yet and they're preparing us on the screw ups. Test the games better and it won't be awkward.

Sounds like they were struggling to copy and paste.

To hand it to IW, I really think they brought us into next-gen last gen with COD MW. It was the first shooter I played on PS3 since Medal of Honour Airborne, I think it was called. I must admit, I was blown away by what I saw, as I'd say were many others. It was definitely a defining moment in gaming for me, to experience such a leap in generations past and existing. By that I mean pre PS3 and current platforms. There wasn't another shooter, especially in a multiplayer experience that could stand next to what IW did with COD. At least not for a couple of years, while everyone was playing catchup.

With that said, I wouldn't be at all surprised if IW will do an amazing job with their next COD. I wouldn't write them off just yet. Ghosts still looks like a lot of fun for a COD game trying to make a transition. Their maps have definitely improved over MW3. There seems to be a lot more diversity to them, by that I mean different routes and structures that you have access to get inside. That's where MW3 felt a bit flat for me. Most of the maps contained the pre-determined 3 or 4 routes, and it just made it feel predictable.

I know visually, it's not what we expected from IW this time around, but I reckon give them the chance and we can expect something like what we experienced with COD MW. If they came anywhere near that again, I would be a very happy camper! Pardon the pun, I hate campers, lol.

The infinity ward we know now isn't the same infinity ward that brought us cod4!,ever since the talent left IW has bin going down hill on a two yearly basis and it doesn't look as if they will ever pull there selves back to the top ever again!..

IW is dead.Only reason cod isn't completely dead is because I think research deserves one last chance to impress me.a bit of a thank you for washing away the horrible taste that is mw3
