THE BUZZ: Glen Schofield, CEO of Sledgehammer Games, reveals internal concern over Call of Duty’s annualization.
“Absolutely, we talk about it all the time,” Schofield told Gamerzines, when asked if there were fears of the franchise running out of steam.
“That’s why it’s all about innovation. We’re fans of [the game] so we know where we want to take it, we know what would make us happy, and we are listening to other fans out there.”
“But you know what, it’s not [losing momentum] right now, it’s growing. You can see it out there. It’s so big, people love it and I get so many tweets from the community. It’s the biggest thing in entertainment. You stay paranoid because things can happen, but staying paranoid actually makes your game better.”
EGM’s TAKE: It’s good to see that the development teams aren’t just resting on Call of Duty’s success, and there is actually a concern pushing them to constantly improve.
Do you feel that Call of Duty can continue to hold the top spot?
