Robert Bowling Reveals More…

Robert Bowling had an interview with Tweakers.Net lately, and he reveals a lot of info.

  • The big challenge with the game’s technology is what drove the engine to be upgraded – the increase of urban environments.
  • People without the Call of Duty Elite service should have the same playing ability as the Elite users.
  • MW2 was all about K/D Ratio, MW3 will try to reward people who play based on objectives.
  • He read all rumours, and some ideas came from it – that’s feedback!
  • MW3 is focusing more on gun-on-gun, personal load outs and less reliance on air support.
  • You will never be the leader or captain of a group, he wants you to be ‘lowest ranking’ squad member.
  • Everything will be released on the same day. I mean, the whole game. The DLCs will be delayed for PS3 & PC, still.
  • Captain Price retrun? No comment.
  • Quickscoping – confirmed.
  • Snipper lobbies: possibility. He sayd it’s how the player sets it up.
  • After-life perks, eg. Second Chance – no comment.
  • There will be a smaller map (Or is it smaller maps?) for one-on-ones.
  • Unsure if Call of Duty will ever return to MW2.
  • Ghost Spin-Off? Are you serious? (It never existed.)
  • He won’t comment if old CoD stats, MW, MW2, would affect current stats.
  • There will be changes in the Melee a.k.a. Knifing system.
  • Limbs can not be shot or blown off.

Now, if you’re really thinkng ‘I want to see this interview!’, you can!

See it on Charlie INTEL.
