Call of Duty Devs Fear Sequel Burnout
According to a new interview with Gamerzine, internal discussions are held “all the time” about the possibility that the Call of Duty franchise might run out of steam. Sledgehammer Games CEO Glen Schofield, who gave the interview, might not be the horse’s mouth, so to speak, but his company’s close relationship with Infinity Ward over the course of development gives his words a certain credence.
“You stay paranoid because things can happen, but staying paranoid actually makes your game better,” the executive continued. No one knows how everything will shake out after this Fall’s marquee FPS match-up, but its clear that the status quo can’t hold out forever. Some paranoia might indeed be wise.
