In an interview with IGN, Activision’s Publishing’s CEO, Eric Hirshberg, said that Sledgehammer’s in the process of creating a new Call of Duty game that is mainly for next gen platforms. This news came last week after an earnings call revealed Sledgehammer will be creating 2014’s Call of Duty. This leap to next gen may mean we can expect to see a significant leap in graphics and gameplay compared to the stuff we’ve seen in previous years.
Hirshberg said: “Sledgehammer is approaching this as a next-gen-first development,- obviously in the console-transition year, anyone who developed a cross-generational game last year had to deal with the fact that the technology of the next-gen platforms was still coming into focus and changing quite a bit during the development process…. Now that we have the next-gen hardware out in the marketplace and solid, that is our primary development.”
