While "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4" is most certainly under development, another industry developer talked about how some franchises, "Call of Duty" included, are getting fatigued because it delivers the same experience as all the other installments.
According to a report from NowGamer on Monday, "Star Citizen" developer Chris Roberts talked about how making a game like "Call of Duty" doesn't always spell success for any given title.
"A lot of the people making the decisions don’t really know and that’s why they all tend to stick to the safe stuff.
"‘Oh, well 'Call Of Duty’s selling really well, let’s make a military FPS!’ But, I don’t think that’s necessarily true; if you’re always looking at what was working yesterday you’re not going to be picking stuff that works for tomorrow.
"You also get that fatigue of getting the same old thing again.
"Games like 'Call Of Duty' or whatever, when they were first around they weren’t the big thing and they didn’t sell as many units as other big games.
"To become a big franchise you’ve got to take risks at the beginning. And Kickstarter or crowd funding is an avenue to help facilitate that," Roberts said.
