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.
