GameInformer’s month long coverage of Advanced Warfare continues today with a new interview with Activision CEO, Eric Hirshberg, about the decision behind making Call of Duty a 3 year development cycle and about the decision of choosing Sledgehammer Games to become the third primary develop Call of Duty games on their own.

    I think this was a brilliant idea. Hopefully great things will come to future CODs because of this, I can’t wait for AW and Treyarch’s next game, the potential is incredible.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I hope Call of Duty will one day return to the Modern/WW2/Cold War era at some point. I don’t want Call of Duty to be like Halo 5: Guardians or anything far future like that. However Advanced Warfare is shaping up to be a good game. Now I just sit here and wait for E3… yup any day now… any day…

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      If anyone was to make a WW2/Cold War game, I want Treyarch to do it. They’ve had excellent previous titles set in those time periods.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’m actually hoping Treyarch make a modern Call of Duty game, they’ve done WW2, Cold War and the near-future, so the modern era is left out in between. But I would be equally as happy for a Cold War setting. I love Black Ops, my favourite Call of Duty game.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          I see what you mean, but frankly, I’m tired of modern games. I consider Ghosts modern since everything about it is modern except that the maps are destroyed. I want a change of pace, since the last 3, soon to be four, years have been modern/future games.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Ghosts is set in the year 2023 so I class it as near-future.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It’s set in year 2023, yet it uses only modern guns and technology. Technically, it’s future, but I see it as modern.

          • MichiganerE

            The U.S. got pretty fucked in Ghosts, so…

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s what I said.

          • MichiganerE

            No, what you said was, “It’s set in year 2023, yet it uses only modern guns and technology. Technically, it’s future, but I see it as modern.” Therefore, you didn’t.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            “I consider Ghosts modern since everything about it is modern except that the maps are destroyed.” Go up 3 comments.

          • MichiganerE

            You said the were destroyed, you never said anything about the U.S. being destroyed.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Most of the maps are in the U.S. Where are you trying to go with this?

          • MichiganerE

            You never said anything about the U.S.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yes, but I said the maps are destroyed, and most of the maps are in the U.S. Do you understand? I indirectly said the U.S. was destroyed.

          • MichiganerE

            Okay, you should of made it more obvious.

          • I’m pretty sure it’s set in 2028. My source? Call of Duty Wiki.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Yes, It’s set in the future. But they only use modern weapons and technology. The only thing that’s “futuristic” about Ghosts is that the maps and half the world, including the U.S., are destroyed. In the MP aspect, it’s essentially just a modern game with blown up maps.

          • isnt it set in 2027?

            Because on that map that is all sandy and has the retracting doors covering a drone, a calender on the maps says, 2027?

          • black_caviar

            yeah in near future predators, aliens and mike will be on the streets

        • Darvald

          Imo, the perfect setup would be: Sledgehammer making future based CoDs (Like AW), Infinity Ward making modern based CoDs (Like Ghosts, MW) and Treyarch making historic based CoDs (Like WaW and Black Ops).

          • jordanxbrookes

            I had the idea of that about 2 months ago. What if Infinity Ward did Present, Sledgehammer did Future and Treyarch do Past.

          • Mr Doge

            That would be good. Looks like Sledgehammer has future in the bag since they know what they’re doing with their research and possible theories about technology 40 years from now. IW is really good with Modern if they know what they are doing like CoD 4 and MW2 but the new IW needs to make sure they take what they got from there and use it to their advantage. Treyarch pretty much nailed WW2/Cold War era games like Black Ops (Number 1 not 2) and they didn’t really suit Future. It was good and all but Black Ops was where it was at especially the mixture of new zombies maps as well as awesome guns and an actual good looking Gold Camo. I want AW to be a good game this year and HOPEFULLY Treyarch makes a WW2/Cold War Era game but I’m hoping for WAW:2 because I’d love to see what happens between WAW and Black Ops. It’s also weird for me to say this but I really want IW to learn from their mistakes and nail Ghosts 2 because the story was really good. Can’t wait!

          • Technically “WAW2” was Black Ops 1, because Reznov was in BO1 & 2, so technically BO2 is WAW3. But they should make a literal “WAW2”. I’m tired of all of the future and modern games, bring back the WW2 setting.

          • jooker-jr

            Almost every game before MW1 was WW games. And believe me there are tons of WW games before MW1

            WW setting had it time

          • Lurch

            Modern shooters have been beat to death lately. Battlefield, Rainbow Six, Medal Of Honor, The last 5 call of duties (Bo1 was in between past and present given some of the tech that was used during the mid 70s time frame). Plus most of this current generation of COD players never played WaW or any of the previous COD mps for that matter. A new WW2 game would be completely refreshing and I seriously hope that is what Treyarch is working on for 2015. I have a bad feeling about AW. I think it’s gonna be a shit storm. These futuristic cods have been some of the worst to be created (Ghosts and BO2). COD belongs in the past and the present.

          • jooker-jr

            I think AW will be one of 2 :

            1- it will be the best cod ever made ( yes even better than cod4 )
            2- the worst cod ever

            80% for #1

          • Wiz

            I’m thinking 70 – 30 cause they may have completely scrapped the core that makes CoD… CoD.

    • ccrows

      This times a very large number!…

    • Ed

      i’d rather see a call of duty revolutionary war era type game before i see another ww2 era game. so sick of ww2 era, is all i’m saying.

      • Smartapple

        ww2 is only the older games, before MW1.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Revolutionary War game? That would be the slowest paced game of all time, it’ll take 30 seconds to reload a shot.

        • Ed

          wow. missed the point, didn’t you.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Ah, I see what you meant.. lol.

    • Dat guest

      I just want a game. They stopped doing WW2 era games because of it’s lack of options and how overused it was already. To go back to WW2 would be like going back on progress. I actually really never wanted CoD to do future stuff, but what else is there that they haven’t touched? Bo2 had kind of futuristic elements, but this game is the real deal. They could do, like, a stealthy game or some shit… like Afghanistan, desert storm, zero dark thirty, commando urban warfare type shit. Idk.

        • But that’s only weapons, tell us what *interesting* operation/battle there was which hasn’t been yet.

          • blackburnt7

            they could do something like wolfenstein did with the WW2 time frame. that shit is just awesome.

          • That would be an obvious rip off.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It could be like Origins without the steam punk or the zombies. There are so many possibilities if they’re creative.

          • Batman

            Black operations during WW2. Secret stuff…

          • That could be cool.
            They could call it Black Ops… Oh wait…

        • Dat guest

          I’m not just talking about guns, man. I’m talking about everything as a whole.

        • Mr Doge

          You also forgot one important thing. Memory. There is a cap to how much you can put on one or two discs. Considering that you would only be able to use not EVEN 1/3 of that list. Also ALOT of those weapons are Anti-Tank which we all know there are NO vehicles in CoD so yeah. Also a LOT of those guns are very similar in look and performace so that kind of means you don’t have many options. You only need 1 mine in a CoD game not 20 different ones, this isn’t BF. It’s CoD which is a game known for it’s simplicity. Think before you post.

    • Super_Deluxe

      I don’t mind that as long as the colors aren’t washed out and hazy. That’s what I hated most about MW2 and MW3.

      • jordanxbrookes

        If anything Ghosts has the washed out colour scheme. MW3 was just dull, but MW2 had one of the best colour schemes. Even the map ‘Storm’ looked great. I wish Infinity Ward would cut out the washed crap and bring back the awesome colours in MW2. Also Black Ops 2 had a nice colour scheme.

    • Rorke File

      Treyarch is maybe working on that sort of game

      • Mr Doge

        It’s not certain. Although it would be the best option, it’s not likely. Probably some guy just came up with that idea on some forum and now everyone thinks it’s gonna be WW2. Not that I want it but I think they are gonna go more in the future. Just saying.

    • neneray310

      ghosts and black ops 2 was near-future mw1-3 were obviously modern,bo1 was Cold War era, and world at war was WWII era advanced warfare seems to be the first actual future era cod

  • TheShadowReaper

    yeah, quite the solid interview. all thats left for the game is to deliver. cause i’m sure all of us will go balls out at the E3 trailer.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      You know it.

  • NiftyGam3r

    I’m super pumped for AW like no other but this interview has made me think about the next treyarch game 3 year development on that game my goodness zombies on next gen!

  • Mr Layco

    Wow, Eric looks to have aged loads since I saw him for ghosts launch, he looks Ill. Maybe its the stress.

    • jordanxbrookes

      The stress of Ghosts lol

    • RdJokr

      The stress of counting all that money…

  • PHAT PETE

    does anyone want the full game informer interview?

  • Jasco

    This cod has such a big potential to be a big success. Please god let it have a good MP

    • We say that every year and since MW3, it’s been a let down.

      • jooker-jr

        I love MW3 and BO2.

  • Ryumoau

    Really great interview. I love that he says the core intent of the extra year added t development wasn’t to add more modes, but to further innovate and polish on the three established modes (Campaign, Co-op, and Multiplayer).

    Thats a good decision, since i don’t think i want anymore modes added. I’d rather have that time spent making campaign more fun than previous years and Multiplayer more interesting. 🙂

  • snapax

    If any u have played fistful of drags ull no wat I’m talking about, but old western would be insanely awesome

    • snapax

      Fistful of frags*

      • thebulky1cometh

        Are you suggesting an old western setting for a COD? I agree it’d be cool, BUT there’s one problem- lack of guns.

  • Crusf
    • Jasco

      Seems.. Legit…

    • Ryumoau

      I’m skeptical about this. I personally would rather have had a Black Ops HD remaster for ps4. Why release this collection so close to Advanced Warfare? It would have made more since to release it further apart, since they will just canabalize each other’s sales.

      • Crusf

        Yeah I agree. If they are charging 60 bucks for this most people wont pay 60 again

    • If this isn’t fake, I am excited.

    • jooker-jr

      Please tell me this is real

    • k5berry

      I’m kinda skeptical, mainly because of what Ryumoau said about them being so close together. But that would be amazing. It doesn’t specify if it would have MP, because it only mentions campaign

    • jordanxbrookes

      It seems fake. If it was the Modern Warfare Collection, wouldn’t you think the box art would have images from all 3 Modern Warfares not just Modern Warfare 2.

  • Wiz

    History is repeating itself. Remember eight years ago, when Cod 3 was released and was called “the worst Call of Duty yet”, and then Cod 4 came along and changed everything and was deemed the best CoD yet? I think the same thing is about to happen this year where Cod:G = Cod 3 and Cod 4 = CoD: Advanced Warfare.
