Unprecedented Online Universe
Activision has said that “the next Call of Duty” a.k.a. Modern Warfare 3 will set a new standard in the First Person Shooter genre and include an “unprecedented online universe”. Very interesting secrets. Shows they’re heating up the competition between Battlefield 3.
The Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said a bit more about “the next Call of Duty”.
“By any measure, Call of Duty is one of the biggest entertainment franchises in the world and we expect this year’s game will set a new standard in the franchise.
The creative excellence and sheer scale of the game we are making, and the unprecedented online universe that will accompany it will re-set the bar for this genre, giving players a new level of emersion, connectivity, community and of course epic action.
The game to date has exceeded every internal milestone and we look forward to showing it to sharing it with you soon.”
This “unprecedented online universe” may be the so-called “Project Beachead” mentioned in the Activision Q4 2010 investor call. Project Beachhead is purportedly being created to streamline all online content with in-game integration, including all kinds of community elements.
