Sledgehammer Games Says ‘Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not a Sci-fi’

As we all know, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set in the year 2054 and many fans believe that the game will be a Sci-fi game due to the futuristic weaponry and equipment seen in the trailer, but Sledgehammer Games have a different opinion on the matter.

We saw things like Exo-Skeleton Suits, Hover Bike and much more equipment in the reveal trailer; Equipment that we have yet to see in the real world, but in an interview with Gameinformer, the Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games, Michael Condrey explained that all of this advanced technology actually exists in the real world so the technology seen in the trailer of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is not fiction. He said, “I think Call of Duty resonates because it’s believable and relatable. It’s always been one of the strengths of the franchise” and he also explained that the future we will see in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the future that “we can relate to, that can strike sort of a zeitgeist”

Condrey said that he was amazed at what he had discovered while researching for the game. He said the real world is “more fantastic than even the things that we were coming up with.” He explained that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is very realistic even though it has all these futuristic weaponry and equipment. “It’s not that fictional leap to a science fiction world you can’t relate to,” said Condrey.

Fans have been curious to know if there will be a game mode aside from the campaign and multiplayer as game modes like Zombies and Extinction have become an important and popular part of the Call of Duty games. Sledgehammer Games did not comment on the topic so we don’t know what to expect. Hopefully we’ll find out more about the game next month at E3.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare comes out on the 4th of November and it will be available on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Wii U.
