Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare developer defends claims on Twitter that it's a Titanfall ripoff.
Honestly for me it is kind of off putting, because I feel titanfall did it better, mechanically. I personally would prefer just waiting for titanfall 2 which will hopefully be more content rich and more modes. (As that was the big sting for the first) This new COD looks like they added those features last minute after seeing titanfall. (They just don't seem super polished) Who knows though, I have still yet to play Advanced Waefare yet, so I'll wait to decide, but as it stands I am a bit unsure.
"This new COD looks like they added those features last minute after seeing titanfall" - It's been in development for three years so that's unlikely. Titanfall started development in the same year - "Respawn started pre-production on its then-untitled game back in 2011" http://www.polygon.com/e3-2...
You think it took all 3 years of developement for them to add a new movement type to COD? Let's be honest here if you think this is what their game was since day 1, you're insane.

Edit - "You think it took all 3 years of developement for them to add a new movement type to COD?" - No the point is this cod is meant to be a new direction with a new dev cycle of three years, new engine etc and started development the same time TF did. Likelyhood of ideas being borrowed from TF is slim expect you have evidence to back that up. "Let's be honest here if you think this is what their game was since day 1, you're insane." - And am guessing you can prove it wasn't since you were on the development team or a play tester.
the next installment of call of duty was suppose to be more like an adventure game. I definitely remember Activision saying that before. So advanced warfare did kind of come out of nowhere.
nicksetzer1 - No, however they were working on a 3rd person "Uncharted-esque" CoD which was put on hold as they helped IW with MW3 which was released in 2011 and then Activision had them begin working on this title. Remember that Respawn didn't release anything on their game until E3 when the Xbox One was shown off. I find it impossible to believe that they could rip off Titanfall in a year later with a fully working game to show off at E3 and have it available to demo with pro players at various gaming events?
The only thing I can think of is when everyone that left IW to form Respawn, when MW2 was released, they wanted to then making a game to the likes of Titanfall and Activision wasn't having it and wanted them strictly making CoD, which then snowballed into the whole legal mess after MW2 was released. Perhaps Activison wanted Sledgehammer to begin working on that idea under the CoD brand instead of a completely new IP. We don't know, more than likely won't ever know, but to say a dev straight up copied Respawn when they began development at the same time is simply incorrect.
Seriously? You think they can revamp the movement system at the last minute? For these movements there has to be maps suited to it, perks, abilities etc so no, it can't be done in the last minute, and the whole story is about future technology, so they 're-developed single player in the last minute? People don't think before they comment. And to the guy who said this did come off last minute because SHG was working on an adventure game, please go somewhere else to troll and hate, SHG were working on an adventure game before MW3 was fully developed, and then they were assigned to make a new Cod which they had 3 years to make in not because they saw titanfall and what 'great' hit it was then chose to redevelop the whole game from scratch. LMAO!
If you are asking if I think one of the worlds largest devs can change movement, maps and perks for MP in 1 1/2 years, (time since titanfall reveal) then yes, I do.
So taking a good idea from another game implementing it in your game and improving it in your own way is a bad thing? I thought that was game development.
Mediocre ripping off mediocre leaves us with mediocre games.
Sounds like what every FPS is doing.
Well, they definitely ripped some maps off Killzone: ShadowFall.
LOL, I got disagreed for this? Wow, ok, just for that I'm gonna show the comparison vids. Since n4g kids wanna be idiots. Shadow Fall - The Park https://www.youtube.com/wat... Advanced Warfare - Venus https://www.youtube.com/wat... Not to mention, even some guns look pretty similar to Killzone guns.
Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed. Of course they don't mind, they clearly don't place any value in originality.
here is another game. no matter how good it is people are going to hate! and say suck!
I think it looks great, I just also think titanfall had an impact on the product. The only reason I am not buying it is because there are so many other games to buy in that same span, namely Halo: MCC l.
It didnt rip-off titanfall. gamers wanted different and got different and people are still complaining. If they didnt add EXO-suits yall would say its the same game as last year. (probably still will say that). gamers will never be happy with another COD game. or EA game for that matter.
You do realize it's possible for a company to come up with it's own original ideas right? They can make a different game than last year, without piggybacking on another game's recent success, by stealing the art direction and gameplay elements. EDIT: At your comment below. Yes, they should come up with a whole new original idea. I know it's scary and difficult, but all fps's about modern warfare have been played out for a loooooooooooooooooong time. Now when they finally decide to change up the theme, they barely change it, and the only thing they come up with is to copy someone else?
What could possibly be done at this point that hasn't already been done? You, actually give me a single idea.
then will it still be Call of Duty if they come up with a whole new (original) idea. no matter what they come up with its going to b close to some other game
I don't think the issue is it being close to another game, it's that it seems they purposely had the intent of copying.
acti just made over 500million dollars, they can spend that on lawyers to fight EA/titanfall devs.
Rip off anyone (if they did which i doubt.) I don't care as long as it isn't Ghosts.
Who really cares?
