This is a year of change for Activision and the Call of Duty franchise. In previous editions of the CoD, we’ve seen the franchise in alternate realities of moments in history, but this new Call of Duty is more futuristic than any other previous title ever.
The game is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, a company formed by Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey, and that has previously worked with Infinity Ward in the making of previous CoD titles. This time, Sledgehammer Games go solo as developer.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare features actor Kevin Spacey and a new exoskeleton gameplay mechanics.
“It’s been a lot of fun working with the team to bring Jonathan Irons to life. The technology is truly remarkable and unlike anything I’ve done before. I’m excited to see where this goes,” said Kevin Spacey.
“We’ve made several key decisions with an eye towards creative excellence on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We’ve really approached this game differently,” mentioned Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “This is our first three-year development cycle. It’s our first time with Sledgehammer Games at the creative helm. And we’re shaking up the formula in several ways. New core gameplay mechanics with the exoskeleton suit. A riveting new story. An iconic new character played by one of the world’s best actors in Kevin Spacey. We’re having a lot of fun making this game, and we think the world is going to have even more fun playing it.”
According to Activision Publishing:
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare jolts players forward in a groundbreaking experience that’s ripped-from-the-headlines-of-
tomorrow, envisioning a future where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat for the franchise.

You are the advanced soldier. Empowered with new, cutting-edge exoskeleton abilities, technological advancements and high-tech gear, players join the ranks of a highly-trained, specialized unit committed to restoring order in a state of advanced warfare.
