Advanced Warfare being being built on a ‘new engine’ according to Sledgehammer Games

DO87G14

With each new Call of Duty release comes an enhancement in visuals, and Advanced Warfare is set to be no exception.

According to the latest issue of GameInformer, Sledgehammer Co-founder Michael Condrey confirmed Advanced Warfare is “being built on a new engine”.

So what does this all mean? Previous Call of Duty titles have been developed on a heavily modified version of the id Tech 3 engine dating back to Call of Duty 2 all the way up to Call of Duty: Ghosts, more commonly known as the ‘IW Engine’.

Although each title has seen extensive enhancements in visual quality year on year, no Call of Duty title to this day has been developed on a “brand new” engine.

Based on the comment made by Condrey, we can only assume this is no longer the case and will instead move away from the id Tech/IW Engine to a completely new in-house engine.

With Call of Duty development now switching to a 3 year development cycle, it has given Sledgehammer Games the opportunity to essentially start from scratch. You’ll see evidence of the drastic improvements in the latest Advanced Warfare Reveal Trailer. If you rewind back to previous Call of Duty reveal trailers, you’ll notice they lack the smoothness and attention to detail as seen in the Advanced Warfare trailer.

We should expect to see more details surrounding the new engine in the months to come.

          maybe he mean next gen power :D

          To be fair a new engine = more power which will change cod (hopefully for the better)

            You actually conjugated “Hablar”, to talk or speak, incorrectly. Hablo is “I speak” while “Hablas” is “you speak”.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      New engine isn’t new visuals…. Engine is more than just visuals. Visuals are like 20% if not less, of an engine.

      • chief

        Way less

  • jordanxbrookes

    I believe that this is true. I don’t think Sledgehammer would say this after showing all of this cool stuff, just to then lie to us.

    • MichiganerE

      Remember Ghosts?

      • jordanxbrookes

        True but a lot of it won’t really cool stuff. But I’m hoping they don’t lie and this is true, because this means a load of things like no more head-glitching, no more stupid quickscoping etc.

        • MichiganerE

          They’ve been saying it’s a new engine since MW3, when in reality, it’s just been upgraded. I’m not believing one word they’re saying until we get proof.

          • jordanxbrookes

            When did they say MW3 was a new engine? Last time I heard it was Ghosts.

          • MichiganerE

            They’ve been saying this for who knows how long.

          • Batman

            With BO2 3arc told the truth since the beggining, they always said it was an upgrade.
            Only IW lied to us twice

      • Mathias Monsen

        but did Sledgehammer make Ghosts?? InfinityWard make Ghosts.

        • MichiganerE

          Doesn’t matter who makes the CoD games, the developers know the community, and they know how gullible CoD players can be.

          • Cod4ever

            Sledgehammer games are so good at making games that they work on tow different games with other companies!!!!! They used to work to another cod but this one’s gonna be cool. Let’s hope!

          • MichiganerE

            Right now, my hopes for Advanced Warfare and the rest of the franchise are very low. Hopefully SH and 3arc can revive my hope. IW though? Not so much.

          • Cod4ever

            Why not???? I mean, this game looks fantastic. Don’t you see how good is it???? Unless you’re just trying to underestimate cod because others say it??? Or you’re just taking cod different to other games…. You might take cod to seriously for perfection….. In a fun way…

          • MichiganerE

            Why? Because after MW3, Black Ops 2, and Ghosts, I’m very disappointed with the series, and while this looks good, I fear that I’ll be another disappointing game.

          • MichiganerE

            The game looks good, but I have a feeling it won’t be. After MW3, Black Ops 2, and Ghosts, my expectations are very low.

    • SiftBlade

      Well Ghosts said they had an all new engine too. So did BO2. I can’t remember previous titles’ advertising, but I’m sure some “All new engine” advertising was used plenty of times in the past.

  • MichaelBolton

    I’ve heard that before from COD-makers. Ghosts has a *brand new engine.

    *Engine is just a rework of the one being used for 10 years

    • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

      We are talking about Sledgehammer Games here.

      • MichaelBolton

        Hopefully I’m wrong, but I’ve fallen for that trick too many times now to believe otherwise.

        • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

          I mean comn,even if they just improved the engine,it looks gorgeous

          • Batman

            Its not about the visuals, the old engine has shitty gameplay stuff like unbalanced eyesight and lag compensation

          • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

            Oh well,i like all cod gameplay feelings,just the lags are annoying

          • Batman

            Thats not what I meant
            I love cod too

          • TheShadowReaper

            thats you and your shitty eyes. go play some BF plz

          • Batman

            When an enemy jumpshot from a corner, the engine will give a 1.5 second advantage to him = he will se you first, and he will have extra time before you get to see him
            And lag compensation always exists because of the shitty ID tech 3 too

          • TheShadowReaper

            ID3 is one good piece of software. its hitboxes had no rival for a long time and when used with good lag comp it totally kicks any engine’s ass. cant say the same about Frostbite though.

          • http://youtube.com/user/extremenameHD extreme_name

            Software*

          • TheShadowReaper

            fixed

          • Confirminator

            looks like BO2 graphics in HD. Nothing amazing

          • HotHam

            Black Ops 2 is in HD so how can AWs graphics look like BO2s graphics in HD?

          • Confirminator

            by HD, I mean higher definition (900+). BO2 is 880×720 on Xbox 360. It looks good, just not amazing.

          • Michel

            I don’t care about the graphics, I care about the lag compensation.
            The fucked up hit boxes.
            and much more.
            Engine is much more then graphics alone.
            And to be honest Graphics is nice but I don’t need it.

            Only thing I need in a COD is Zombies with dogs that protect you(instead of attack).

          • OblivionSwift

            Having a trailer taken from Xbox One and only running on 900p that’s impressive and adding the fact that the Single player cutscenes will be CG. I can only imagine what 1080p will look like. *cums in pants

  • Dokaxi

    i don’t know, but watching the trailler, i have the feeling of the old engine, about the textures and the quality of the image…

    • DutyCalls

      That’s because you’re watching it in 144p.

      • Dokaxi

        nope, i’m watching it ate 720P, the quality of the textures are the same as the COD Ghosts and the BO2

        • DutyCalls

          at*
          It’s obviously a new engine. If you look in the trailer, you can see the bright lights outside of the window, and the look of possible sweat in the models. It’s like a cartoon version of BF4, but better in my opinion

        • Cod4ever

          Ummmmm……….. You are a bf4 fanboy right???? I think these lighting effects from bf4 mighte’ve just changed you’re eye vision…… Seriously………….

  • StrongIsland

    A new engine to them is the old one with a few changes

    • SeaSaltSora

      Let’s take what Infinity Ward thinks and apply it to every other developer who develops Call of Duty… >.>
      This looks amazing. Hate all you want, but you know it’s true.

      • Cod4ever

        I agree, this cod is way more better then other game graphics!

    • TheShadowReaper

      maybe, maybe not. but lets say its a new engine instead of the classic one, why the fuck IW was making chages like fish AI, lighting and the such if it was to be thrown out of the window? wtf Activision.

    • lMattW

      I’m with you. I would put money down that this is the same engine with enhancements. It doesn’t make sense to build a new engine that’s supposed to last for a generation and force it to work on the 360 and PS3, and it doesn’t make sense to use a different engine for new and old generations.

      • Andrew

        Well SHG isn’t developing the 360 and PS3 versions.. so it may well be being made on those platforms using the existing engine… or a modified version of the new one.

      • Cod4ever

        Anyone that really is into shooters might say take my money for cods.

  • http://Twitter.com/ImDiabetus Alex Hill (Im Diabetus)

    As long as they don’t put 90% of their engine into lighting it should be good.

      then why werent you there to comment that on Titanfall which is way closer to that than AW? stupid idiot is stupid enough.

    • Cod4ever

      For you’re information, cod advanced warfare or warfight aleready has taken the spotlight from halo. This game’s got world-wide!!

  • Jack Lame

    @disqus_lmJm1ykKj4:disqus Go Away.

    • Jack Lame

      Wtf.

  • Batman

    The old engine had alot of shitty things, I hope this is a brand new one

  • Confirminator

    A new engine is not always a good thing. This could be the very thing that breaks the game.

    • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

      Oh really,lets go with the old engine and watch everyone cry,euh they said its a new engine,so lazy,cod ghosts 1.5

      • Devin Jackson

        He has a point man. If you build a new engine, its bound to have some kinks. It can look as pretty as they want, but if it breaks core Cod mechanics, or worsens lag compensation.

        • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

          I thought people wanted something new…

          • Devin Jackson

            Consumers don’t know what the fuck they want. New and we want the old because of the issues with the new, old and instead of improving and fixing something that works we want new. We desire change, but changes scares the shit out of us; we want the original, but we get tired of it. We want want more features, then those features aren’t good enough or weren’t necessary. Good dev’s will ignore us, and ignore the publisher ( to the degree that they can) and make the game they want to make. Then we will have a good game, because it will be their vision,

          • https://twitter.com/CallMehEpic RileyWoof

            Wait.Play.Judge.

          • Kosta

            good point but my problem is those cod haters saying *cod hasnt changed* blah blah then there is those others that love cod for what it is and saying just fix the older problems and add a new engine and dedicated servers for better gameplay and stuff.i feel sorry for the devs because they dont know who to fucking please. no matter how much it improves they’ll say its the same shit. i really find that funny because alot of those asswipes are the same that go on new MARIO game review and “this is the same game we know and love” and go on BF and say the same thing same as other games SUCH HYPOCRITES i swear. dont know what to say to retarded hypocrites like that …

          • Devin Jackson

            On point

        • TheShadowReaper

          nah it cant worsen lag comp, its an engine, its all about visuals not connection. as for gameplay mechanics i agree. we may see the very first “different” COD game due to that very engine.

          • Devin Jackson

            You are wrong. If you think all an engine handles is visuals, then well…

          • TheShadowReaper

            yes, an engine handles visuals only. then you need another engine that handles lag comp etc and you incorporate it into the said engine. and engine is just plain visuals its not your lag comp system. plz…

          • Devin Jackson

            Yes, a game engine encompasses visuals, physics, sound and AI activity. But the networking framework and latency detection implemented with a UDP by the devs is directly related to that engine.

          • TheShadowReaper

            …directly related to that engine by the infamous hitboxes. now that is correct. but i was saying that its not the one and the same. they are indeed two separate pieces of software that come together to make the final product, not one and the same. that was what i was pointing out.

          • HotHam

            you are completely wrong, one engine handles everything. You dont need a separate for each thing.

          • Guest

            Dude, do some research. Smh.

  • Matuzz

    Quote from Ghosts website:
    “New Engine

    From maps and modes, to animation and
    audio, to who you are as a player — this is the biggest overhaul of
    multiplayer since the original Modern Warfare®. Things like
    Sub-D, Displacement Mapping, Real-Time Lighting, and Dual-Rendering tech
    gives us the ability to build the most visceral gameplay experience
    we’ve ever created. And at 60 frames-per-second across all platforms,
    there is nothing like Call of Duty Multiplayer.”

    And lets remember that was total bs.

    • Guest

      “…this is the biggest overhaul of multiplayer since the original Modern Warfare” If I remember correctly, that’s what Infinityward said about Ghosts.

      • GRANT

        Leaning, sliding and shooting while mantling where game changing…

        • MichiganerE

          Please tell me you’re joking. If not, then I’ve lost faith in gamers.

          • SeaSaltSora

            *Loses faith in gamers because of one person*

            K.

          • MichiganerE

            Not because of one gamer, because most gamers believe leaning is game changing, and he is adding on to it.

          • SeaSaltSora

            I see.
            Thanks for clearing that up. xD

          • GRANT

            I was being sarcastic, may not have came across clearly.

          • MichiganerE

            Oh thank god, you scared me.

        • SiftBlade

          Shooting has always been in COD.
          Leaning has always been in COD (PC).
          The sliding was cool, just not game-changing.

            I find myself trying to slide in the old games after playing too much Ghosts and Far Cry 3 / Blood Dragon.

        • Confirminator

          2 bullets and your dead. That was game changing. You die like a ghost from campers who play like ghosts.

      • Tayler Hammond

        That’s exactly what he said when he posted. It was a quote from the GHOSTS website. So InfinityWard did say that.

    • Confirminator

      Ghosts’ Safeguard A.I. reactions to bullets is about 10 times worse than MW3′s Survival A.I. MW3′s graphic textures on the 360 are better than Ghosts’ graphic textures on the 360. Overall, Ghosts engine upgrade was worse than MW3.

      • RdJokr Nguyen

        *facepalm* Nobody uses the 360 to judge the graphics.

    • Cod4ever

      You could appreciate that (this) new (cod advanced warfare) can handle the graphics with so many details and Phisics.

  • SeaSaltSora

    Here comes the haters.

  • Xbone

    Probably going to be 792p or 900p on xbox one

    • SiftBlade

      900p

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        It was said that the trailer is a Xbone version which runs at ALMOST 900p.

        • cray cray

          Next gen shit, right? lmao

        • SiftBlade

          I’m pretty sure it said 900p. You can’t really be almost 900p.

          • jordanxbrookes

            899p?

          • SiftBlade

            Bingo.

          • KevinWoof

            Lol’d right there

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Yes you can. There’s 768p, 800p, 864p and probably more.

          • SiftBlade

            Well I can confirm it said 900p, so yeah.

        • Cod4ever

          Maybe….. But I heave seen that it was on 900p on xbox one!!!! Now we just heave to wait and see how’s the game gonna be, but I aleready find it cool!!!

  • Flutter Filly Shy

    Why does it say commonly known as the IW engine? I call it the Quake engine.

    • Matuzz

      And it dates back to 1999 not only to Call of Duty 2.

    • IVAN WU

      It is called the quake engine, but when they modified it for use in cod they renamed it the IW engine

  • Matuzz

    Engine history lesson:

    Original Call of Duty used heavily modified Quake III arena engine. Know as: id Tech 3.

    With Call of Duty 2 the game started using IW engine 2.0 that was modified from the engine first Call of Duty used.

    Call of Duty 3 used different engine called Treyarch NGL.

    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare used IW engine 3.0 that had these new features:

    Bullet penetration

    Improved AI

    Lighting engine upgrades

    Particle system enhancements

    With Call of Duty: World at War Treyarch started using modified IW engine
    3.0. This is the point when Treyarch’s and Infinity Ward’s engines takes
    their own paths. World at War’s modified IW 3.0 engine included a lot
    of new features:

    Improved physics

    Dismemberment

    More destructible environments

    Realistic burning of skin and clothing

    Propagating fire

    With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Infinity Ward named their IW engine to
    version 4.0 but only big difference from the engine used in the first
    Modern Warfare was texture streaming technology.

    As Infinity Ward updated the original IW 3.0 engine from first Modern
    Warfare, kept Treyarch improving their modified version of IW 3.0 from
    World at War. So Black Ops featured modified modified IW 3.0 engine. New
    features included:

    Texture streaming technology

    Lighting enhancements

    3-D stereoscopic support

    After Modern Warfare 2 was made the Infinity Ward was basically split in half
    as the studio founders put together new studio called Respawn
    Entartaiment. As result many IW members left the IW and joined this new
    studio. Activision ordered Sledge Hammer studio to help what was left
    from Infinity Ward to finish up Modern Warfare 3. The game used engine
    called MW3 engine that was upgraded from the IW 4.0 engine.

    New features included:

    Improvements to texture streaming technology to allow for larger regions.

    Lighting engine enhancements to show reflections of some objects on tile floors.

    Improvements to the audio engine

    Treyarch now developed Black Ops II and it uses modified version of Black
    Ops’s IW 3.0 engine. This new engine has bunch of new improvements,
    mostly on the lighting effects but its also the first Call of Duty
    engine to feature DX11 as all the previous ones have used DX9. New
    features:

    Reveal mapping (improved texture blending)

    HDR lighting

    Bounce lighting

    Self-shadowing

    Intersecting shadows

    DirectX 11 for PC version

    And Ghosts used even further modified MW3 engine that they now named IW6 Engine. New features:

    Pixar’s SubD (models sub-divide the closer the player gets to them)

    New animation systems for movement (sliding, leaning etc.)

    Fluid Dynamics

    Interactive Smoke (PC)

    Dynamic multiplayer maps

    Displacement mapping

    True real-time HDR lighting

    Iris Adjust tech

    Graphics Tessellation for PC, Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

    Advanced PhysX support for PC version

    Specular mapping on particle effects

    Using Umbra’s advanced rendering technology.

    But all of the engines are still based on their core to the id Tech3 from 1999, and that limits its capabilities.

    • Dokaxi

      Nice information!!

    • Jamie Hudson

      yeah but there will be no going back after investing in a new engine, if people don’t like it for example, if it doesn’t feel like cod any more etc..

  • NuttyTheSquirrel

    New engine? Becuase I’ve seen pretty much the same animations and errors in the this trailer. Errors like guys holding the gun instead of the foregrip…

    • SeaSaltSora

      Proof?

    • HotHam

      Um, thats has nothing to do with the enigine, those are animations problems that should be fixed in Maya

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        It actually has everything to do with the engine. Animations say in the engine, because that’s where you test them. Research before you say something. And Maya has nothing to do with, huuum, ANYTHING….

      you know whats funny? that girp animation you said happens ALL the time on BF4 BF3 when i have a grip and im playing on maxed out settings (not that is makes a difference) on my VAPOR X R9280x

    MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION:
    1080p vs 900p vs 720p

    • Kosta

      and pc 4k with everything ULTRA. using higher resolution is not always a good thing because lets use an example, if you watch porn in 720p you cant see see lets just use the girls dots on her face (like i dont know those average dots and stuff people have on their face that girls try to cover with make up) you cant really see them which is good but when you watch it in 1080p you can see EVERYTHING which makes it worse and makes her less attractive. so since the next gen consoles are 2 years outdated the xbox one version COULD look better for the reason is the PS4 version if its on 1080p you can see all the graphics flaws like the settings on medium and some high (because i guarantee you they wont be on ultra with MSAAx4) and on xbox one those medium and high settings you be able to see very well because of the lower resolution which is a better thing. so whoever thinks having higher resolution on console is a better thing you are very wrong. its different on PC because the higher resolution shows you the FULL beauty of the settings on ULTRA. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE

        “and on xbox one those medium and high settings you be able to see very
        well because of the lower resolution which is a better thing.” dude never go full retard

        • kplem

          i meant to say was the overall picture will look better because you wont be able to see the flaws of low graphics. example if i play on PC and have my game on medium settings ill turn down the resolution because on FULL 1080P i can easily see the flaws. relax i mistyped it -_-

        • kplem

          another example is when i play 007 agent under fire on a gamecube emulator on PC the graphics look weird in 1080P because you can easily see all the graphic flaws from a distance. like up i meant when you are playing COD AW and see the textures you would be able to see them easily and from a distance at higher resolutions on a bit lower like 900P you wont see them as easy and IMO its better so i dont have to see the graphic flaws easy. anyway i dont really mind i play on PC on ultra with my VAPOR X R9280x

    I thought Ghosts was on a new engine….

      not a new engine just a updated engine

    FINALLY A NEW ENGINE OH YES THIS GAME IS GONNA BE GREAT. #HYPESQUAD #ADVANCEDWARFARE

    • Goten

      Hyping a game up that just got officially released is honestly a recipe for disaster. I have witnessed so many times, they amount of people that are left disappointed after actually playing the game for a good month or two, because of TOO much hype. Everyone is already getting excited about the ‘minor’ details of the game, when in reality, they might not even turn out to be what you expected – implementation/exposure wise.

      As for me, I go to buy a new Call of Duty game with a open-mind, and not relying the hype in order for me to enjoy the game. As a result of my thinking, I end up thoroughly enjoying the game, whereas the hardcore CoD fans are already begin to hate on it, just a month after release, maybe even weeks. I suggest that you should take all the leaks, details and news (that we have been currently bombarded with), with a grain of salt. Having said that, hype for a game isn’t all that bad, in fact it helps raise awareness, which equals more sales, revenue and success.

      • http://Twitter.com/Repulsev Repulsev (VVFZ)

        You may be right about that. Same thing happened with Ghosts for me. But I wasn’t serious considering the amount of #’s in my comment

    • Cod4ever

      I’m exited as well!! This game dosent need more trailers, it aleready made it for me!

  • devilhead

    Unreal engine 4 hopefully.

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    Take this with a grain of salt people! It doesn’t seem right that an unproven development team with be the first ones to create a brand new engine. There are a lot of months between now and November for this to be vetted. Is Sledgehammer pulling off a miracle? Only time will tell. Everyone needs to slow your roll and not get caught up in the hype over one trailer. Next stop E3!

  • thebulky1cometh

    Seems like a big portion of the COD community seems to finally be saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it” and “prove it’s a great game,” rather than the previous favorite phrase: “take my money for a preorder!”

    I think that’s a good thing.

  • Ryumoau

    i hope this is really true. would be nice to have a new engine.

  • 111AlaN111

    I hope for the return of the Dolphin Dive.

      That’s Treyarchs thing. Maybe a butt slide along the ground, then prop up into a crouch, then go prone. But during your slide, you can go under objects, but can still shoot.

  • chief

    When Ghosts was revealed they said THE EXACT SAME THING

    • StraightEdgeAtheist

      No they didn’t.

      • chief

        …Yes they did. Scroll down this websites news for a year, you’ll see it you bloody idiot.

        • StraightEdgeAtheist

          I’m pretty sure they didn’t. They said it was modified one you moron.

    • Sebastian

      I dont even… alright.

  • Jack Lame

    Don’t think you understand the difference between New Engine, and COMPLETELY new engine.

    COD: ghosts = Modified engine.
    COD: aw = new engine.

  • George

    Awesome, it sure did seem like there was a bigger difference in the trailer.

  • http://Twitter.com/Repulsev Repulsev (VVFZ)

    How can you watch the trailer and not immediately wanna fap furiously right…?

  • Call of Doody

    hopfuly with the new engine they will finally sort out CoDs terrible ping rates

    • Cod4ever

      Cod has more likes than dislikes!!!!!!

  • Call of Doody

    hold up didnt IW go on about having a new engine and it turned out to be about lighting effects and some gun sounds? :/

  • kyr95

    Well to tell you the truth i really dont mind if its a new engine or an updated one, the game looks pretty awesome from the trailer. Its difficult to spot the difference in “new” and “updated” engine according to devs(e.g. last year with ghosts, also DICE had mentioned frostbite 2 and 3 as new engines while they are just an updated version of the first one. That being said, all that information from Gameinformer has me really intrested, and im happy to see that SHG is doing their best to take the franchise to a new direction. I look forward to seeing the changes theyve made to multiplayer. But until then, E3 here we come! :D

    • Cod4ever

      Exactly!!!! This is a similar thing I sayd around here! But if haters gonna hate here, please don’t bother us or the game…. But I’m not forcing you…..

      • kyr95

        Im happy to hear that im not the only one feeling the same way

  • John Blue

    Guys, didn’t we hear this before every CoD game? Only to learn it was only an updated version of the old engine most of the time?

    • https://YouTube.com/user/mrestrogenugn Mr. Estrogen

      But we’ve never been told they started the project from scratch. All we’ve heard was ‘Next Gen Engine’ for ghosts. They specifically stated that they aren’t using the ID Tech 3 or any aspects from it.

  • FU COD

    And there was also suppose to be no last stand in MW3, and dedicated servers for Ghosts, and so on. Dedicated servers won’t fix the broken community of COD that inevitably ruins ever game that comes out. Fix your community and make a balanced game and maybe it’ll be successful again

    • Chris Mason

      To split hairs, there is no “Last Stand” (the perk) in MW3. That wasn’t a lie. “Final Stand” (the death streak) is. Two different things.

    • Cod4ever

      These guys are just vf4 fans. I do t like bf4 neither bf3. But vad company was cool enough. But this cod beats them!!!!!

  • NoMoreCOD

    Lol heard that before. And let me guess dedicated servers also!!!

    • Cod4ever

      A guy with a bad name and that dosent heVe sense…… Please if you hate just leave and change you’re name….

  • BHCMax

    “New Engine” didn’t they try that old trick with ghosts, to lure sales? and look how THAT new engine turned out .. #crockofs*** and lies

  • Tyrone_83

    New game engine? Didn’t they say this same exact lie for MW3 & Ghosts? My guess it’s another “tweaked” version of iD Tech 3

    • Cod4ever

      We just heave to wait. It’s developed by sledgehammer after all. Activision did a good job tho!!!!!

      • Tyrone_83

        But the point is they said the same thing twice and lied.
