Activision Convinced Sledgehammer To Make Call Of Duty: WWII

Published

Call of Duty: WWII might well have been Advanced Warfare 2, had Activision not asked Sledgehammer Games to turn back to the series’s historical roots.

Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg explained, while speaking to Newsweek, that Activision wanted to return to the WWII focus of the series’s beginning, despite Sledgehammer wanting to make a sequel to the popular and well-received Advanced Warfare. Hirshberg hinted that Call of Duty could return to its other time-periods and sub-franchises, but as of now, the focus is on WWII. 

Activision, seeing a trend in fans for a return to the franchise’s roots, asked Sledgehammer, one of the three studios working on the Call of Duty series, to tackle WWII, having faith that Sledgehammer would give the game authenticity and sufficient scale.

The point at which Activision asked Sledgehammer begin work on WWII is unclear, as is whether or not this suggestion was put to the other two companies working on Call of Duty, Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Regardless, the move seems to have paid off, as WWII reportedly broke $500 million in sales in its first three days on shelves.

Marvel's Spider-Man PlayStation 4 Loading PS5

New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.

The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.

The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.

Check out the full video below.

Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.

A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
