The differences in Call of Duty engines between the studios are in the spotlight, as Warzone occupies a central place for the franchise.
When Call of Duty: Warzone first launched, it was developed by Infinity Ward and Raven Software in partnership to become the royal battle for Modern Warfare.
With the release of the game, which you can play for free, it began its own life in terms of success. And Activision wants to integrate Warzone with their premium versions to provide a seamless Call of Duty experience for players.
The launch of Black Ops Cold War has led to some challenges. The Cold War is built on Treyarch’s own engine, which is different in style, appearance and feel for Warzone. The integration of Cold War weapons was a difficult time, as balancing issues stood out.
Now the president of Activision has admitted in a new interview with VentureBeat that this is something they want to avoid in the future.
He says the teams were “Very focused on that in particular.”
Kostic says one of the “most important concepts” for their teams is “To make sure we limit any friction for our community as we move forward.“
The key is “as we move forward.” The success of Warzone, along with the time of the development of the Cold War, led to differences in the feel of the engine and the game. But in the future, this problem should not arise, according to Kostic.
“What it means behind the scenes is to make sure that from a technological point of view everything feels smooth for the player. This is a big focus for us as we move forward, so as we move from one experience to the next, as new weapons come in and out of the game, we feel like a solid, continuous game that is evolving into the future. “
Kostic says internal teams are now cooperating more than ever. These features and improvements will come “From our development teams working together to do this – as you change and exit Warzone or a first-class experience in the future, it’s seamless for our community. This was another passionate point for our team to make sure we could provide the best possible experience for our fans as we move forward. “
There are already rumors about the game Call of Duty in 2021, which will be developed by Sledgehammer Games. The title is said to be called “Call of Duty: World War II Vanguard.” But the important aspect here is that recent rumors claim that the game runs on the Infinity Ward engine, which means that it is the same engine as Warzone.
If this is the case, then there will be no friction between the experiences as players move between the two games.
