Modern Warfare 3: Three Devs Better Than One?

GamingUnion.net: "So Modern Warfare 3 has officially been announced and Activision have more or less started riots in the streets for more news regarding one of the most successful gaming franchises on the planet. Who will be in it, who will die, where will the engagements take place, and what will the plot will be all about? These are just a few of the questions that have been raised and tackled so far, which is a pretty fair chunk of information considering we've yet to see even a single bullet fired in gameplay yet. But the real question isn't so much what features the game will highlight, but rather what level of quality can we expect from the title. With three completely different development teams working on various portions, there's really no telling what the final product will be like, but it's safe to bet that somehow Activision thinks that these three developers will far surpass the success where one alone set records and standards across the industry." (Activision, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It worked kind of well for Medal of Honor, but that was only two and one part of the game was significantly better than the other.

If they are still using the same engine then I will do the same as I did with blackops, pass.

I think it could work, it could certainly bring something fresh to the table. After all, as the writer points out, Ubisoft have done it with Brotherhood and they're doing it again with Revelations.

some times it can work out great and other times it just ends up falling apart with the different dev they call have different idea what to do. thats when Problems can happen

Not exactly. there is bound to be conflict of vision and which direction the game should take.although they are making different parts of the game,its always difficult to integrate the different components and create a coherent product.

no one cares if you passed on black ops or mw2, boycotted Activision because they are successful without you, they have created the best selling game in history. your opinion has no influence on the 20 million that will buy MW3. no doubt, 3 devs are both a detriment and a positive aspect of MW3, only time will tell.

Raven did a great job on the map packs for Black ops, those maps were pretty good and competitive, im sure the multiplayer maps on MW3 will be outstanding.

As for the other modes, Survival seems pretty interesting, just hope for humans rather than zombies, and spec ops could do a story to it.

Raven didn't make them, that were just rumours.

I actually think it sounds like a great idea having a studio focus on just one portion of the game while another focuses on something else. This way we don't end up shortchanged because someone couldn't meet a deadline or they worked too much on another game mode instead of multiplayer.

The success of the series comes in the form of multiplayer. So essentially multiplayer is its own game in itself. Hopefully they chose the right studio for each section of development.
