This is it. This year’s installment of Call of Duty is subtitled “Advanced Warfare”, and is being developed by Sledgehammer Games. A debut trailer and fresh details have been released. Quench your thirst below.
“Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare envisions battlegrounds of the future, where both technology and tactic have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise,” reads the official press release.
The trailer includes footage captured on Xbox One, suggesting publisher Activision and Microsoft have once again signed exclusivity deals.
The video also confirms House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey’s role in the game as head of a private military corporation.
Of particular interest is the future setting. Advanced Warfare features advanced weaponry, including soldiers wearing powerful suits that let them leap great distances. There are also cloaked helicopters, wall scrambling, portable cover and hover bikes.
The game will be released on PS4 and Xbox One — but will also hit last-gen consoles PS3 and Xbox 360, alongside PC. Activision didn’t give the aforelisted details, but an Amazon listing leaked the platforms on which the game will be released.
As for who’s developing the last-gen version, it seems to be studio High Moon, per Superannuation.
