MP1st - "Sledgehammer Games talks about the development cycle of Call of Duty going forward, the lack of Battlefield 3 Influence on Modern Warfare 3, among other things."
Sledgehammer is who again?
Ex-Visceral Games founders moved on to Activision and formed Sledgehammer Games.
ohhh,so the dead space dudes.
What dev cycle? Just copy n' paste....>.>
@NYC_Gamer Dead Space series, including Extraction and also Dante's Inferno (If my memory is correct). I just remembered that my PS3 copy of Dead Space 2 came with Dead Space Extraction. I should probably check it out, since I've got a PS3 Move.
wouldn't be surprised about the development cycle time. Beneficial for Activison and the developers
I think that way, it'd be better for everybody. The publisher, the developers, the franchise, and the gamers.
Lets see what they come up with...
stop changing your comment lol. well obviously there will be another one next year and probably from treyarch or these guys. either way it's gonna alternate
I made errors ;) I'm interested in seeing where they go with it though...back to WW2? WW3 is being covered in MW3, BO has different eras down already and that really leaves the past or future...
No influence? Then explain why their "big" trailer had several shots of emphasizing the glass breaking everywhere? lol For the sake of the better gamess, I hope they BOTH took influence from each other in some regards. Thats what real developers do.
"I hope they BOTH took influence from each other in some regards." Exactly, all games have to get cues from each other to better the overall player experience.
For sure. It it makes the game better, I don't see how anyone could complain.
Glass breaking everywhere? Can you clarify?... as I'm not connecting the dots.
Smashing glass = destruction is it not. The multiplayer reveal of mw3 was 80% smashing glass.
Ah, I see... I didn't connect the dots, since breaking glass is something that happened in many other games including CoD (in single player campaign), before BF3 was released. I remember an awesome scene in MW2, where you breach into the room, glass is flying everywhere and time goes slow mo as you pick out the enemy. So destructible environment isn't an exclusive to BF3, it just more pronounced. I do know that CoD (as far as I know) introduced the control scheme BF3 is using though... nothing wrong with that, but pointing out that it's preferable that companies introduce positive things regardless of where that idea comes from in my opinion.
I just don't get what a 3rd series in Call of Duty could be. They did WWII, Cold War, and Modern Warfare. It'd have to be in space!
I think it was rumored to be a MMO other then that yeah. I can't see them going back in time any further then WW2 and even that has gotten stale
Well the action adventure one was canned and I was actually looking forward to what that might of been. Project Iron wolf is the rumor that seems most likely. I really would like to see like a WW2 game from them again. Modern Warfare games have been overused in half the time that people started getting bored with WW2. I'd like to see the darker side of WW2. Not winning every single battle etc. Bulge and so on.
They could do so much better with a cycle of 2-3 years instead of one every year, it shows with WaW, MW2 and Black Ops, hopefully MW3 will feel like CoD4/MW2 but not be filled with extreme bullshit.
Currently, they have a 2 year dev cycle and yearly release cycle.
Not holding my breath until i see it.
Imagine if they still had the same unchanged engine within 3 years time. I think people will go apeshit on them. In 3 years time, I'd better see a HUGE change. I honestly think they can fit the 60 frames per second gameplay while upgrading their engine a lot. It could look literally photorealistic!
No influence? Damn shame. Your biggest competitor and a damn good game in its own right, but it'll have no influence on your title. That actually makes me LESS likely to buy, not more. I'd say the same thing of Battlefield, too; as long as it's done well, there's no problem taking cues from a competitor.
"I remember an awesome scene in MW2, where you breach into the room, glass is flying everywhere and time goes slow mo as you pick out the enemy." I remember that being really boring and easy. I think call of duty noobafied the fps genre. Any way back to the point battlefield has been out way longer then cod. Somehow battlefield has managed to have an original game each time. Starting with bf 1942 I remember when the ea team working on moh left to start IW. They made a great game that destroyed moh as far as ww2 games go. Ever since then its been the same damn engine over and over again. Are you bored yet ?
"I remember that being really boring and easy." Do you also remember the fact that you played that on the "Easy" difficulty level?
Modern Warfare 3?
"Do you also remember the fact that you played that on the "Easy" difficulty level?" Actually no but time doesn't actually slow down when u breach a door douche bag. Last time I checked mw2 has bad tv show writing all over it. If you took all the terrible stereotypes of war they are written all over mw.
Rio king do you enjoy paying Activision 60 a year just like you gave them 7 years ago for every tony hawk game that came out. You must enjoy wasting your money on pointless shit.
