Creative director Bret Robbins talks about the next big Call of Duty title.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be the first game in the franchise to be developed with next-gen consoles in mind, as Sledgehammer Games targets the Xbox One, PC and PS4 (while High Moon Studios takes care of current gen). Creative director Bret Robbins shared his thoughts on the futuristic FPS and whether it was safe to assume this was the definitive Call of Duty experience.
“I think we have a great Call of Duty on our hands. I think it’s going to be really thrilling for people, it’s going to look fantastic on the new consoles and on the PC. People are really excited about it. I think it’s a really fun and a beautiful game.”
Advanced Warfare also boasts a stronger story than previous games till date and Sledgehammer is working to ensure players invest time into it. “I really hope the players do invest the time. I think we’re telling a really compelling story this time around. It’s obviously an original story that we haven’t really seen before.
“We have some great new characters that we’re introducing. Characters like Jonathan Iron who’s played by Kevin Spacey. We’re also doing a lot with our cinematics and the way we tell the story within the game. We’re trying to make it very immersive; we’re trying to create these really memorable characters. Yeah, I think people will really enjoy the story.”
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare releases on November 4th for Xbox One, PC, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U.
