Infinity Ward’s executive producer Mark Rubin said that the studio has made the decision to leave their well known sub series ‘Modern Warfare’. Earlier, it was believed that “Ghosts” was the sequel for Modern Warfare series however that’s not the case.
Call of Duty, for now, is reported to come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
It was also pointed out that there was a dispute between the publisher and the studio founders over Modern Warfare 2’s royalties, which also lead to as high as 46 senior members leaving the team. Infinity Ward had no choice but to team up with Activision’s studio new Sledgehammer games for Modern Warfare 3.
However, this wasn’t the reason enough for Infinity Ward to ditch Modern Warfare sub-series, as Mark Rubin explains it!
“It was not a hard decision, but a long decision,” Rubin said. “When we finished Modern Warfare 3, we had this big brainstorming session that lasted for weeks. We all really knew we wanted to continue making Call of Duty. We wanted to create a new universe, or a new story at least. We wanted new characters and new experiences.”
Rubin also added while speaking about the game’s engine,“From a gameplay standpoint, we never felt hindered by the generation or the consoles or the tech. We always felt gameplay isn’t tech-dependent necessarily. But this new tech allows us to make those worlds that we are playing in more realistic. We always try to make it so the player always feels naturally involved in the world around them. The more realistic and natural the environment, the more the player’s imagination melds with that game.”
