Thought the smack talk between Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 was done? Think again!

Posted on October 18, 2011 AT 05:20pm

THE BUZZ: With how quiet things have been lately, one could almost think the big war of words between the folks behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and the people making Battlefield 3 had died out.

Shows you what I know!

On Twitter, mild-mannered “gamer who loves everything about games and strives to be in the business” Robin Sapp—aka @gdrobdog10—decided to tweet this simple message to Glen Schofield, studio head, chief creative officer, and co-founder of Sledgehammer Games (one of the teams working on Modern Warfare 3):

over 8 million testers.. now that is a stress test, not just over a thousand like XP.

In response, Schofield had this to say:

We had well over a 1000. IW has years of experience with the biggest MP game ever. I surely didn’t c bugs like I saw elsewhere.


EGM’s TAKE: Not too hard to understand what “elsewhere” is referring to in terms of bugs. I’ll be honest—I’ve missed the friendly rivalry that was going on between the two sides of the great Modern Warfare 3 vs. Battlefield 3 saga!

Although, when I say friendly rivalry, I’m not actually sure about the “friendly” part.
