Next-gen Call of Duty in development at Sledgehammer Games for 2014 release

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Last week, Activision added a new studio to the Call of Duty development cycle when it announced that Sledgehammer Games is at work on the next entry in the annual shooter series.

"For the first time, this years Call of Duty game, and future Call of Duty games, are being built on a three year development cycle," the publisher said during an investors earning call. “There are several advantages to doing this, the first is, of course, quality. This will give our designers more time to envision and to innovate."

Speaking later with IGN, company CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed that the next COD is being developed with a focus on the latest platforms. “Sledgehammer is approaching this as a next-gen-first development. Obviously in the console-transition year, anyone who developed a cross-generational game last year had to deal with the fact that the technology of the next-gen platforms was still coming into focus and changing quite a bit during the development process…. Now that we have the next-gen hardware out in the marketplace and solid, that is our primary development,” he said.

Hirshberg didn’t elaborate on how the next game will make use of next-gen technology, but did mention that “we’ve got more capabilities than ever before to play with and we want to make sure our developers have the time to innovate, iterate, to bring the best creative vision and the most possible polish to each and every game.”

As for fans that’d rather play on current-gen systems, Hirshberg assured that this year’s Call of Duty will work well for them too. “There are still a lot of people playing on current gen and we want to deliver a great experience for them as well,” he said. “But it will be a next-gen-first production and the current-gen game will be a version of that.”
