Next Call of Duty is leading on next-gen

PS4 and Xbox One are the lead platforms for this year’s as-of-yet unannounced Call of Duty.

Sledgehammer is approaching this as a next-gen-first development,” Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg told IGN. Obviously in the console-transition year, anyone who developed a cross-generational game last year had to deal with the fact that the technology of the next-gen platforms was still coming into focus and changing quite a bit during the development process.

Now that we have the next-gen hardware out in the marketplace and solid, that is our primary development.”

This may not come as a surprise, of course, but don’t forget that some upcoming titles are apparently still leading on Xbox 360 and PS3 due to the larger size of the combined install bases.

And that’ll be exactly why Hirshberg is keen to reassure owners of those systems.

Call of Duty will also be a great current-gen game,” he insisted. There are still a lot of people playing on current gen and we want to deliver a great experience for them as well. But it will be a next-gen-first production and the current-gen game will be a version of that.”
