Ahsan Rasheed has provided some comments in regards to the next-generation console versions of the upcoming multiplatform video game, "Call of Duty Advanced Warfare." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 5, the debut trailer for the first-person shooter came from the Xbox One version. However, it doesn't mean that Microsoft's new system is the lead platform in development.
The industry insider revealed that Activision and Microsoft Studios have an exclusive marketing deal. It may be a similar deal to what the publisher currently has with Sony Computer Entertainment for "Destiny." As a result, all trailers and other types of advertisements should be based on the Xbox One version of "Call of Duty Advanced Warfare."
Despite what fans have been told, however, the PS4 is the lead platform in development for the next "Call of Duty" video game. He also revealed that the development team behind last year's "Call of Duty: Ghosts" preferred playing Sony's next-generation console as opposed to the Xbox One. As a result, the PS4 release should be the definitive version of "Call of Duty Advanced Warfare" on consoles.
The upcoming title will be developed by Sledgehammer Games, the same studio that assisted the Infinity Ward in the development of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3." Activision is going to use three separate teams in order to extend the development cycle of the franchise to three years while keeping the annual releases intact at the same time. Prior to the first-person shooter series, a third-person shooting title was in development at Sledgehammer Games before being cancelled.
"Call of Duty Advanced Warfare" is currently due to come out for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms along with the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems on Nov. 4. It appears that the video game won't be heading to the Wii U, however, which is a growing trend for most multiplatform third-party titles. You can take a look at the graphics of the first-person shooter from the official Sledgehammer Games Twitter page with the photo embedded near the top of this article.
