Gisteren heeft er een Modern Warfare 3 evenement plaatsgevonden en Robert Bowling heeft hier weer een aantal interessante interviews weggegeven. Met name gaf hij aan dat de twee ontwikkelaars van de Call of Duty serie beiden een andere aanpak hebben en dat de serie zo voor gamers ook interessant blijft.

“What Treyarch has done – and what I actually think is fantastic where we are now – is they’ve really taken Call of Duty in a different direction. No longer are you getting the same game every year, but you’re getting a different style of the same core Call of Duty design.”

“Every developer has their own personality and their own direction, and more so than ever we’re seeing people who really enjoy this style and the other. And it’s not a black and white good and bad; they’re very different experiences but in the same core gameplay.”

Verder denkt Robert Bowling dat de aanpak van Treyarch met Black Ops goed heeft uitgepakt, vooral de Zombie mode is hier goed uitgewerkt, maar zal zijn opwachting nooit maken in de Modern Warfare reeks.

“Rather than trying to cannibalise each other, they do things that we would never do but have turned out fantastic – like their Zombie modes – and added new features to multiplayer that we would never add, just because they’re a different style.”

“When we go into development we’re making sure that we’re aware of what people want to see even if it wasn’t something that was in a game that we did. All I can say is that it’s our responsibility to make sure that we’re attending to anything.

“I know a big question early on for development on Modern Warfare 3 was ‘what’s the difference between 360 and PS3?’ We made it very clear that it’s always been an Infinity Ward standard to make sure that both platforms run equally and to make sure that they’re receiving the same attention, dedication and quality.”
