In the future, warfare is advanced. Hover-bikes, directed energy weapons, threat-detection grenades and powerful exoskeletons are just some of the tools available to those who answer the call of duty. You know what I'm talking about, right? It's the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare "Future Tech and Exoskeleton" trailer!
As reported on IGN, Studio head of Sledgehammer Games, Glen Schofield isn't happy with the way Modern Warfare 3 is getting treated on Metacritic.
It's currently got a metacritic of 82. That's a reasonable average, sitting just above our Modern Warfare 3 review score.
Glen was more upset by the user rating (formed by the public, not critics). At the time it was sitting at 1.7. Metacritic's users were making a statement. Not necessarily a truthful statement, but a statement nonetheless.
In an interview with CVG, Sledgehammer general manager Glen Schofield confronted the issue of Call of Duty's aging engine head-on: "I've worked on a lot of engines over my lifetime and spent a lot of time putting graphics in to them and this thing is Porsche. And what I mean by that is that it is stream-lined, everything in it is perfectly freaking clean. You can tell it's been worked on for years. It's easy to upgrade."
Sledgehammer is co-developing Modern Warfare 3, and Schofield is sick of hearing implications that the Call of Duty engine's age will result in a less impressive game.
