No New Engine for Upcoming Call of Duty
With fellow FPS shooters (Battlefield 3 and Resistance 3) resorting to new game engines to boost graphical and gameplay prowess, Call of Duty is sticking with an ageing Modern Warfare 2 engine. It looks like the Call of Duty that will be coming out in Fall will look very similar to Modern Warfare 2 because Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Raven Software will be using a modified Infinity Ward version 4.0 engine that was used for Modern Warfare 2.
Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward Community Manager, tweeted the Infinity Ward community not too long ago about Call of Duty running on a new engine. “That would be counterproductive. An engine takes years and years to develop and get right.” In business terms…if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. The previous Call of Duty games have made a ton of money (at the expense of server issues) and in their thinking…why would they change a thing.
