Talking about that, Sledgehammer Games’ co-founder Michael Condrey discussed the kind of pressure that is on the development teams to consistently manage to be the top franchise that Call of Duty now is.
“Yeah, there is a lot of pressure,” Condrey told Polygon. “It’s curious, because it’s a question we get asked a lot about sales. And it’s a weird answer, but its true that we don’t ever talk about sales.”
“I was thinking about it the other day,” Condrey said. “So like the New England Patriots. Tom Brady. The winningest Super Bowl team in the past decade. Those poor bastards, they have to win the Super Bowl every year or they’ve failed, right? … And so for us, it’s a little bit like that. … There’s some pressure with that, I won’t lie.”
