Robert Bowling: “We’ve Moved Beyond the MW2 Engine”
So Modern Warfare 3 looks pretty . Real pretty. Parts of what we see in the new trailer look like they could fit in previous Modern Warfare titles, and then others look way, way beyond it, like in the above in-engine image. Oh hey, so that’s not just my imagination — Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling tweeted this:
We haven’t gone into detail on the engine yet but we’ve moved beyond the MW2 engine and added a lot of cool stuff for MW3.
Like I said above, anybody with eyes can tell they haven’t built a whole new engine for the new game, but damn if it isn’t obvious that they’ve made some major, major alterations. It actually looks like Crysis 2 in a few shots, but that may be more because of the scale of the set pieces, which is of a size we’ve only very rarely seen in games. Crysis 2 is the last game with that kind of perspective in New York, and so it’s the logical comparison. Either way, got damn.
