COD: Advanced Warfare Official Site Confirms Next-Gen Focused Development, Reveals New Info On Game


Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare official site has gone live now. Advanced Warfare will be the first Call of Duty in the series that will have a 3 years of all next-gen focused development cycle, as explained on the official site.

The official site again confirms that there is no Wii U version. The only platforms that are listed are PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be a Wii U version as we saw with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, who were later revealed to be coming to the Wii U as well.

So what’s new? First of all, we got these 3 official screenshots, which strangely appear to be 900p instead of full 1080p.

Secondly, Activision has also released the boxart for all the platforms on their official site, as can be seen below.

People might be thinking that Advanced Warfare is another cross-gen game but the listing on the official site clearly hints at a development focused specifically on next-gen. It probably means that Sledgehammer Games are working on current-gen and PC while some other studio is going to port them to the previous gen and perhaps Wii U.

Developed By Sledgehammer Games (co-developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3), Harness the first three-year, all next-gen development cycle in franchise history.

The official site also explains the story of the game in detail.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare takes place in a plausible future in which technological progress and today’s military practices have converged with powerful consequences. In this carefully researched and crafted vision of the future, private military corporations (pmcs) have become the dominant armed forces for countless nations outsourcing their military needs, redrawing borders and rewriting the rules of war. And Jonathan Irons, the founder and president of the world’s largest pmc – atlas corporation – is at the center of it all.

The emphasis on the new breed of soldiers is also explained, and they are called “Advanced Soldier”.

Powerful exoskeletons evolve every aspect of a soldier’s battle readiness, enabling combatants to deploy with an advanced lethality and eliminating the need for specialization. The introduction of this gameplay mechanic delivers enhanced player movement and verticality through boost jumps and grappling, covert cloaking abilities, and biomechanics that provide unparalleled strength, awareness, endurance, and speed. With the advent of the exoskeleton and newly advanced armor and weaponry, every soldier commands tactical freedom in any terrain unlike ever before, fundamentally changing the way gamers play call of duty across all modes.

    Best gMe ever!

    Stop using term “next-gen” , it does not make any sense. 1600×900 is not “next-gen” , hell neither 1080p is. It’s no more than a dumb gimmick for console peasants.

    • We usually call the PS4/Xbox One current gen. However, Activision themselves labeled it as Next-Gen on official site.

    “First of all, we got these 3 official screenshots, which strangely appear to be 900p instead of full 1080p.”

    that is just sad I was think we had moved on to NEXT GEN with the XBOX ONE and PLAYSTATION 4?

  • xjumper

    Uhm the footage in that trailer was 840p… so who knows what resolution the xbone version will stuck at. But if the Xbone version got a boost in resolution the PS4 will have a boost in better performance at 1080p. Unlike Ghosts lol

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    Well of course it was 900p, the reveal trailer did say the footage came directly from Xbox One after all.

    You people nagging about the pixels of the Xbox One need to grow up. Your childishness is not amusing and you look stupid. I’m trying very hard to keep my post clean as I have an excessive need in me to curse at you. Go take your 720p PS3 and shove it. The Xbox One still looks great regardless of resolution differences, as the difference is not noticable at all. You just want something to nag about because you can’t live without nagging or saying something negative about someone, their choices or something. I feel disgusted to be assocciated with you “gamers” on the internet as you give those of us who just love the game a bad name. Do everyone a favor and take your closeminded stupidity somewhere else so we can be excited for the same reason – GAMES!

    • xjumper

      It doesnt look great with all that Aliasing and Missing AF and on top of that a lower resolution.

      And can Xbone Fans stop with this stupid arguments? “Games”? Really, there is a reason why we buy new Hardware and that is first and foremost not Games.
      So if games are so important to you and hardware doesnt matter, why not stay on 360 or ps3? Or better why not stay on GameCube and PS2?
      Logic from Xbone Fans is seriosly flawed.

      • Simoné Odendaal

        Are you really that smallminded? We buy the new hardware for the new upcoming GAMES. I would LOVE to see how you play Dead Rising 3 on a 360

      • Jordan

        nvm with the xtards. they are blind with obvious reasons. eg. always calling ps4 with no games when fact is from release till at least this very day ps4 actually have more games released on the platform than x1. then they start saying a lot are indies when over half the bunch of games on x1 are indies too. just because they have less this gen suddenly the whole indie scene become garbage and irrelevant to their eyes. And indie games aint games when we have someone like Tulip debating over GAMES. and it is so funny when ms is still working so hard on their ID@xbox program when their “fans” dont even appreciate them. then come around calling people childish when last gen simply because they have a few pixels more in their games, all ps3 3rd party games to them are inferior. and when this gen it is more than just a few pixel count, it suddenly become not noticeable. what can i say? wow just wow. so when just a few tiny pixels is being so noticeable last gen making this game with a bigger discrepancy being “not noticeable”. if that is aint blind? then what is it? so calling people childish, they need to go reflect on themselves first.


      Someones mad… “as the difference is not noticable at all” but it is, otherwise all games would be 720p/60fps. Did you edit the part about the PS3? Hmm lol. So it’s OK to hate on PS3, but don’t dare hate on Xbox One!

      • Simoné Odendaal

        I did not hate on the PS3. I owned one, liked some of the games, still prefer Xbox. PREFERENCE. CHOICE. And no, its not noticable. The only difference you really see is in the placement of HUDs. But then again, I play for games, not for the hardware. And you don’t get the point, do you? The point is STOP HATING! For heavens sake. What the hell does it matter what who chooses? Instead of going on about how bad everything is in your eyes, how about focusing on the positive? But, yeah I guess we must make peace with people becoming more selfsentered and defensive. In the end, you just hate on another console in order to justify your purchase. I’m not hating on ANY platform whatsoever. Each platform has pro’s and each platform has con’s, but you like to look past the con’s of your choice and gank on the con’s of the other. Everyone knows by now the Xbox One is weaker regarding hardware and you look unbelievably childish to bring it up every time. No one cares! What you choose is your problem. It was your choice, as each person is entitled to without your endless raging about what they prefer. No one needs it.

        • Simoné Odendaal

          And no, I am not defending the Xbox One. I am trying to let you see how silly it is to make an argument about little bits of crap. I am trying to let you see that we would all be better off if we just accepted each others choices, regardless of sacrifices. I sacrifice resolution – big bloody whoop! So what! What does it matter to you? Its my preference.
          Man, I bet its awesome to watch a walkthrough on one side of your screen while playing your game, or even watching some TV?
          You like to have the better graphics card. Awesome! Great choice. You get to play games I cant, just as I get to play games exclusive to xbox.
          The next guy prefers a giant expensive PC that can handle 4k resolution. Dude, I bet it looks awesome! How about we play some World of Warcraft together? Can you show me some gameplay in that resolution (another game that takes advantage of it maby)?
          See my point? United in gaming. Not divided by different choices or preference. Instead of constantly hammering on the shortcoming of the Xbox One, how about noticing its other awesome features like Snap and HDMI passthrough. And the exclusives we get. Just like you get exclusives. Am I getting through to anyone with my argument?

      • Simoné Odendaal

        My point stands: STOP HATING. Let people be and let them choose as they please. These small things don’t bother everyone and you just sour up the community. Instead of having another friend, you make an enemy because you are biased.

  • NoNeedToArgue

    The footage was from XB1 so 900p wouldn’t be surprising. Still looks good.

  • Josh

    Wow how stupid of the company to say full next-gen and they include 360 and ps3. I dont like cod on Wii u but hey man they keep making that system look bad for something that isnt bad at all. They want to see the end of Nintendo!

    • NoNeedToArgue

      “It probably means that Sledgehammer Games are working on current-gen and PC while some other studio is going to port them to the previous gen”
