You Think You Want a CoD4 Remake, But You Don’t – Treyarch Dev Talks Innovation

MP1st - Recently, David Vonderhaar, Game Design Director at Treyarch, opened up a dialogue with fans revealing what kind of thinking goes into developing a Call of Duty game. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Honestly, while a new engine would be nice, it's new gameplay that I would be more interested in.

Fewer Michael Bay-style explosive set pieces and more stealth and exploration. Give me some actual pacing with real peaks and valleys rather than constant, brain-numbing action scenes. Lose the on-rails vehicle sequences and give me wide-open battlefields with vehicles that can be driven in any direction to take on objectives as I see fit.

I could go on, but you get the point. It's the super-linear progression from one cut scene to the next that is killing the series, more so than the engine.
frostypants  +   1450d ago
Laugh if you like, but there was more innovation in Black Ops than in MW3, relatively speaking. You're sure not going to see anything great from Infinity Ward, because their main talent is gone (hence why MW3 is a warmed over re-hash). If Treyarch can't bring more innovations, you might as well stick a fork in the CoD series, because no one else will.
DirtyLary  +   1450d ago
They wont. The second the game changes from quake 3 with modern day guns, people will scream.

A new engine is the definite end to the COD/MW juggernaut,and the rat maze, circle jerk, musical chairs game play COD has become.
RumbleFish  +   1450d ago
To be honest, I was a big fan of CoD 4 (played it on PS3). So I bought CoD W@W, to learn that they sold me a full price map pack with a slightly weaker single player campaign. The multi player was not bugged that much as the CoD 4 multi player before the patch that took them 2 weeks to release for the US version and additional 6 weeks for the EU version.
CoD W@W was my last purchase of that franchise.
Now I have BF3 on my PC running an average of 60 fps on ultra settings. What can I say? I'm happy with that.
For those who prefer smaller maps and infantry only gameplay I hope that there will be a new engine and some change of direction gameplaywise for the franchise soon.
dawgsfan117  +   1450d ago
Cod4 was brilliant. I wish we could go back to its simple and balanced gameplay aswell as the amazing map design. The three kill streak system and the small amount of camoes that served to show off how many headshots you had with a weapon were perfect. Also does anybody remember how awesome it was the first time you picked up the 50. cal sniper?
disturbing_flame  +   1451d ago
Actually it's pretty funny to say people don't want a COD 4 remake and are waiting for innovation, when they actually just took Infinity Ward engine to make their games.

We ll talk about innovation with Treyarch when they will work on their own new engine. Untill then they are just releasing like extension every year for 70 bucks.

Because of their lack of innovation, they are killing all the positive thoughts around the licence. It may sells more but the multiplayer is just getting worse with time.

Yeah I have to say I think Blops is the best Cod since 4. But they have done **** all innovation wise, they just had the engine and did what they wanted with it. Which is still little more than an expansion to Cod4
lategamer  +   1450d ago
I thought Nazi Zombies and Gun Customization was pretty innovative.

How was BF3 innovative? New Engine? That's not innovation. Destruction? Bad Company 2 had that, and Red Faction did it better. Sound Design? That's always been great?

How was Uncharted 3/Gears 3/etc. innovative?
IrishAssa  +   1450d ago
Nazi zombies is horde mode. Gun customization.. .please don't tell me you think Cod invented that? BF is new(nuff said on it). Cod isn't new since 4. Just map packs and perks. Either improving the game or making it worse. Nothing more nothing less.

Millah  +   1450d ago
I'm not a COD fanboy, but you have to at least recognize what the games Infinity Ward made has done for the genre. Tyarch and innovation don't go together, but Infinity Ward games have always innovated (that is, until the company collapsed after MW2 released). MW3 is the first game from IW that isn't up to par with the rest of em, simply because the talent is no longer at IW, instead at their newly formed studio Respawn.

COD 1 invented aiming down sights, almost a decade ago. Other developers only recently started doing this in their games. COD2 invented the regenerative health system that is standard in every shooter today, as well as other things like hitmarkers, onscreen grenade indicators, toss back grenades, etc.

COD4, being the most innovative, literally invented the entire online multiplayer framework used by other franchises today. Perks, killstreaks, leveling, challenges, etc.

Innovation can be measured by it's influence. I think most rational people would agree that COD4 and MW2 have been quite influential. So for you to say that COD has never innovated, would mean you have not been playing video games for very long, or you're just an obnoxious fanboy that jumped on the "hate on COD" bandwagon ever since MW2 became a huge success.

Don't blame Infinity Ward for what Activision did to the series (as well as their studio). Jason West and Vince Zampella hated it just as much as you all do, which is why they had their big fallout. They hated Treyarch with a passion too.

And guns that were more balanced from the start.

And a simplified list of killstreaks.

And solid hit detection.

And either a legitimate way to use sniper rifles, or none at all.

And much weaker auto-aim.

New engine will happen next gen. It's just how it is.

But what's this?

" It can be speculated that the reason why fans request such a thing is because for many, CoD4 was their “first” CoD experience. Your first experience in almost anything tends to be the most memorable."

CoD4 wasn't my first CoD. 2 was and that was really*** great for the time but CoD4 knocked it out of the park in nearly every way. That's why I want every CoD game to be similar. Because it was great. Instead, we get horrible mw2, decent fun with black ops and a game with 1 shot kills with mw3.

Well, whatever. I rented mw3 so I guess I can't complain (woo gamefly!).

i myself enjoyed WaW more than the modern rehashes they keep making, having no scopes and getting long shots on ppl was pretty fun when using the rifles. The only thing i didnt like was the tanks the maps where too small for them imo.
Shackdaddy836  +   1450d ago
True. If they do a WaW2, they either need to balance tanks a lot or just take them out completely.

I just absolutely loved WaW though. Every gun felt like it had some type of power to it and just the feel was so great. Thompson was amazing to shoot.
FunkMcnasty  +   1450d ago
@Mister V Same here. Black Ops was my favorite since COD4, simply because of the freedom of customization, and the instant gratification of being able to purchase any, perk, upgrade, and attatchments you wanted for a gun as soon as you unlocked it. I was never a fan of the "kill X amount of people for unlock this attatchment" that IW does and Treyarch did with WaW. I also thought the maps were better, and I really enjoyed the wager matches and their unique game types.

I think the only thing that held Black Ops back was the lag and server issues.

I didn't pick up MW3 because, quite frankly, I just need a break from CoD. Picked up BF3 on release day and have'nt looked for another online shooter since.. but if Treyarch stick with Black Ops too I may just check into that.. might be what I need to renew my interest in CoD.

Exactly, nobody wants a remake, they want a game with the same quality, same ammount of balance, simplicity (NO MORE THAN 3 SET KILLSTREAKS and all that other crap like tactical insertions) and just a good new game. Sadly that probably won't happen if Activision does what they always do, run it into the ground and don't care. I mean everything they added from COD4->MW2 basically broke the game. It really did and it was a shame. Now it's just a sad joke that people still think it's good because of how great COD4 was that set off this monster of a bad game managing to become popular for so long.

I disagree with you. I have been let down on all COD's since COD4, but I actually enjoy MW3. I really enjoy support killstreaks and bigger rewards for playing as a team and going for objectives.
MRMagoo123  +   1450d ago
I think one of the main problems for each new iteration is the kill streaks they just keep adding more and more crap like that, when what most COD players want a back to basics COD4 experience.

We want it to be about the shooting again and from what i can tell its more about the kill streaks and getting the kills is just the means to an end.

Each new COD seems to get further away from the game we all loved.
DARK WITNESS  +   1450d ago
nobody wants a remake... what we want is a sequel that plays as consistently as cod4 did.

Cod4 was not perfect. it had bugs, it had lag issues at time.... BUT, compared to blackops and MW3, it played like a dream.

It does not matter what new and great innovations they put into the game if the game is hardly playable.

I thought Blackops had some good ideas on paper, but in the end it meant little if every time I empty a clip into someone I would get killed by one shot. Then I would have the pleasure of watching the kill cam which showed me not even lifting my gun. MW3 is even worse.

I dont care for all the fancy crap they put in it. if I shoot first and accurately at the guys head I want to be rewarded for the kill. Not die and then watch the kill came of the guy shooting the thin air to the left or right of me and getting a head shot

MW2 and Black Ops actually added plenty of new features. Trolls like you however, just like to ignore that fact. WoW was a (basically) carbon copy of CoD4 though.

(However, the games are unbalanced and glitchy)
Megaton  +   1451d ago
What the hell is this? Who wants a CoD4 remake? What would they remake it with? They still use the same engine, FFS.

@AdmiralSnake - Oh please, I currently own 3 CoD games and have owned CoD4 on multiple platforms. I'd bet that I've easily played more CoD4 than you have. This is still an absurd idea. Remakes are typically done across separate generations because of a demand for graphical upgrades and enhancement. Remaking CoD4 on the same engine in the same generation would be utterly pointless. I'm sorry if that bit of realism is lost on you.

There's no demand for graphical improvement. Barely any game changes their gameplay mechanic, and regardless of whether it have better graphics, will that improve your gameplay experience ? Absolutely NOT!

New Engine ? I didn't hear that shit till BF3 came out.

COD fans want dedicated severs, a new engine is quite irrelevant right now, plus the new gen is apparently on its way, if next gen comes, and they still use the same engine, you may THEN complain.

JeffGUNZ  +   1450d ago

I believe the irony he is going after is the irony of people who say they hate COD and they can't stand, etc, are the ones who post more in the COD articles. It's ironic, meaning the opposite of what should be. Therefore, most of the posts in COD related articles are from people who say they can give a sh*t about COD yet they continuously post in every article.

It is also typical for this site, but it is also ironic that the people who say they hate COD and haven't bought a COD since COD4 are the majority of the posters.
MRMagoo123  +   1450d ago
Maybe its because the haters on the newer COD games are also the bigger fans of COD4 and every time a new COD comes out with more kill streaks,death streaks and whatever streaks they think of next they feel the COD franchise die a little bit.

Still....remaking a game that used the same game engine it started with is kind of a rip off. Might as well make a HD texture patch for the old game and sell it as DLC.

These guys are saying that a COD4 remake "would be neither an innovation or evolution" yet all other CODs that have come after COD4 were hardly innovative and in no way were they an evolution. Way to contradict yourself there Treyarch come back after you have made a decent COD like COD4 and that's not a hot steaming pile poo like Black Ops.

No evolution? Black Ops added a TON of customization, completely changed the weapon upgrade system, added dolphin dives, new effects, dynamic levels, expanded stat tracking (IN GAME), theater mode, etc.

Then MW3 took 90% of that and threw it away, or provided an inferior version of it.

If took a gamer who was unfamiliar with the series and put MW3 and Black Ops side-by-side, I guarantee you they'd think Black Ops was the newer game by at least a couple of years.

All of what you just said is nothing new, other games offer the same additions and the weapon upgrade system in BO was terrible so were the maps they are some of the worst in COD history. Also what new effects? Graphics were a downgrade from MW2 lol but i do think MW3 is even worse than BO so i retract my statement about it being a pile of poo and instead give that title to MW3.

The biggest downfall of Cod 2 me is the lack of exploration in single player. My first COD was MW2. Even though it wasn't a sandbox, it had enough freedom to keep me interested. Now it's just a bunch of minigames written by some neo-con on prescription drugs and bud lite.

First off, what? Please, what is a new engine going to add this late in this generation that will make COD a game that all the N4g haters will all of the sudden like? So, you're not playing COD because of the graphics and the sound? I mean really, a new engine is only going to add better graphics, sound, and other stuff that is irrelevant to true call of duty fans. The reason people play this game year after year for hours on end is because the gameplay is fun.

Second, who is asking for the gameplay to change?! COD is a mammoth because of it's current style of gameplay. You have to be out of your mind to think they are going to change the play style. I have never heard anyone asking for COD to have the gameplay changed, except the pathetic BF nerds on this site.

Most people believe they should add dedicated servers, focus on balancing (weapons/perks/maps/spawn locations, etc). The game play is what has made this game amazing and is what keeps this game from outselling everything year after year.

I'll still sitting here dumbfounded and confused on your post that people want to gameplay to change. Get going.

You don't want the gameplay to change for the better at all? Don't you think that balanced weapons, perks, maps, and spawn locations will make the game better? How would dedicated servers hurt? The "N4g COD haters" ARE the "true fans" who have bought the games year after year and want to see it improve, and you're going to sit there and say that we are wrong for pointing out the obvious flaws with the franchise we once really enjoyed? Get going.
JeffGUNZ  +   1447d ago
@ Nick

You're reaching pal, he is clearly stating the gameplay needs to be changed, it doesn't. Balancing issues and perks are upgrades, not gameplay changes. Gameplay changes would be something that alters the core mechanics of COD. I'm all for balancing and whatnot, those are not changes in the gameplay, they are modifications to an already existing system. It's the core mechanics of the gameplay which make it such a success.

i buy this franchise but seriously take infinity wards name off these games, its not infiinity ward making these & it surely doesnt feel like infinity ward.

i like how treyarch are trying to make the next cod a space game(thats what real infinity ward was going to do)

do they have any idea what its going to be like when respawn also drops a space game? treyarchs wont matter one bit. kaput!

innovation.. pfft

Who the hell would want a COD4 remake? COD8 is using THE SAME ENGINE slowly bugged down over every iteration. Would we really want COD4 with more exploits, bugs and stuttering performance? Of course not. This is like saying they should remake FF7 on a PS1 engine instead of a PS3/360 level one.

COD4 is the last good COD game made, remaking it is like telling us you'd want to turn it into a shit stain like the rest of the recent series.

But really the best favour of all? Just.....stop making COD all together.....please? Let those delicious developers out of the barn to graze on some new IP for once.

Fix the hit detection, graphics, sound, online and then we can talk about innovation.

Maybe wait until the next generation to even think about remaking a current generation game.
