A user on Twitter spoke with Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling and told him that a new engine needs to be used for the Call of Duty franchise.
“Someone just needs to spend the $ and construct a new engine for the CoD franchise… Ground up,” Robert Bowling responded back, “That would be counter productive. An engine takes years and years to develop and get right.”
The engine first used for Infinity’s Ward Call of Duty 2 has been used for all Call Of Duty games ever since. Bowling’s statement confirms there will be no new engine for Modern Warfare 3 when it is released later this year.
Bowling was also asked whether he still works for Activision, and if he’s going to join his former bosses at new studio Respawn.
He replied: “I work at Infinity Ward and plan to remain here. We’ve got a great team and working on a great project.”
No idea where all this new engine talk keeps coming from.
