‘We would never do that.’
There is one thing we need to give credit to Call of Duty for- it never tries to make itself out to be something that it is not. While other games show off footage from high end rigs that will never reasonably recreated by any other rig on the market, much less by home consoles, Call of Duty lays itself out there exactly how it is. No matter how unremarkable it might look.
So when Advanced Warfare debuted looking pretty darn good, a lot of people raised doubts- is this real gameplay footage on Xbox One (which was allegedly the version we were being shown), or were we being misled by Activision as well?
As it turns out, Sledgehammer says it is all real footage, that they will never mislead the public with respect to Call of Duty’s graphics.
“We’ve always had a commitment to delivering at target spec,” Condrey told me in an interview you’ll read in the latest issue of OXM, they said to OXM. “We’re not a studio that’s just going to go out and show off some flash in the pan, high-end PC demo that we’re never going to be able to put on a console.
“We worked very closely with Microsoft throughout the whole three years to understand where they were going and stay right in parallel. As [co-founder Glen Schofield] said, nothing’s effortless, but Microsoft was a great partner to Call of Duty.”
Advanced Warfare launches later this year on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC. How many of you are excited for it?
