Robert Bowling has today announced that the next Infinity Ward Call of Duty title will remain on the same engine, as previous COD titles.
When asked if IW would be building from the “ground up” Bowling responded that he thought that it “would be counter productive” for the game. He went on to explain that a decent engine “takes years and years to develop and get right.” This being the case, the current engine that Call of Duty titles are created on is in fact the Call of Duty 2 engine: although of course it has been substantially tweaked.
Will Call of Duty manage to fend of Battlefield 3 or is it time that IW build a brand new engine to take the FPS genre by storm? Comment your opinions below.The Next Call of Duty Title Won't Be On A New Engine,
