Call of Duty Action Adventure Game Cut Down In It’s Prime

Awhile back right when Vince and Zampella left Infinity Ward we started hearing about an Action Adventure game in development by Sledgehammer games. Apparently we will never see that game because it was killed in prototype. When they got the chance to work on Modern Warfare 3 rather than it’s offshoot they abandoned what they say was a compelling looking prototype in order to work on the main entry in the franchise.

I can say with certainty that I would have played a 3rd person Call of Duty, but as it stand I have little to no interest in the newest game in the series, especially with the large amount of other more interesting shooters on their way. What about you guys? Are you looking forward to the new Call of Duty or would you rather them have done something new with the franchise.

  1. Activision has an unfortunate tendency to invest a lot into making the ‘next’ game in franchises that typically sell well, but in doing so they exhaust their customer base. Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk were cut off, so that Activision could, funny enough, put more resources into Call of Duty. While I don’t think things have gotten dire for this series yet, I’m kind of on the outside looking in on them, as CoD is simply a game series I don’t play. However, if this game doesn’t do much in the way of innovation things could certainly trend that way on them yet again- all in all taking things in another direction, even if it was risky, would have been a much better investment of their time and money, I believe.
