Infinity Ward enlists the help of professionals to fine-tune the multiplayer.
Professional Call of Duty players were brought in to consult on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Activision eSports brand development director Jay Puryear told Games Radar that, “They play at such a high level. They’re like ‘I expected you to spawn here’ or ‘if I control the map in such a way you should spawn over here.’ So they really help with spawning and tuning, or weapons and content – they have an opinion on all of that.”
Professional players are usually a necessity in situations like this. While Treyarch has a ton of information it can rely on for fine-tuning its maps, Infinity Ward is working from scratch for its multiplayer. These pro players help to point out the overall balance and flow of maps in order to get the feel of the game just right.
Of course, Call of Duty as a franchise has been relying on input from e-Sports and YouTube personalities for the past few years so this isn’t too new. What are your thoughts on it regardless? Let us know below.
