Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is "the Best Game Of Our Lives," Dev Claims

"No doubt about it," Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield says.

This November's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is, according to Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield, the best game he has ever made. He said as much on Twitter this morning, explaining that development on the project is nearly finished ahead of its release for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC (but not Wii U) on November 4.

Sledgehammer Games' other founder, Michael Condrey, also chimed in to say he's getting excited about the forthcoming launch of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Prior to establishing Sledgehammer Games, Schofield and Condrey collaborated to create the Dead Space series for Electronic Arts. Schofield and Condrey's previous development credits include various games based on major licenses like Lord of the Rings and James Bond.

Sledgehammer Games formally unveiled Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's multiplayer mode during Gamescom last month, showing off how the game-changing exosuits affect head-to-head matches. However, we still have more to learn about the game before its release. One major mode Sledgehammer Games has not talked about yet officially is co-op.

They have had Zombies and Aliens for DLC. How bout man made biotech android/creatures kind of like in the OG Far Cry. That would be cool.

lol, the last fun COD's were W@W and Black Ops1. Activision has no more intention of releasing anymore good COD titles. It's all trash from here on out until somebody decides to make an actual GOOD COD game along the lines of goldeneye reloaded(open levels, open playstyles, big campaign), but with CODW@W styled carnage.

Hype machine, nothing more and really not a good attempt at generating buzz.

I'm sure multiplayer will be good. The question is whether the single player will just be the same as always. It's fun to play because it's like an action movie but it lacks depth. It's like shoot. cover. shoot. shoot. shoot. big explosion. floor falls out. you slide down into water and get washed away to the next area where you shoot. cover. shoot. shoot. shoot. It's just like gun fights the whole time. How about making sneaking an option? choices? branching? large open areas to tackle objectives? No? Just Kevin Spacey and hyper realistic gfx for a whole 57 minutes? okay fine. as long as it's exciting I'll play it once.

I'm looking forward to the time when games like this and Destiny come out, and issues like #gamersgate and #notyourshield are no longer given the time of day.

i'm sure the game will be half way decent  and all.. but "the best game of our lives"? ..they must have pretty low standards if  a COD game is the best game of anyone's life.. unless their joking or being held at gun point by people from Activision

Meh. We'll see. After MW3 and Ghosts, I'll rent this to see if it's worth anything before I spend $60 on the full game.

So these people never played a GREAT game or they have very narcissistic tendencies.  I can think of a few games that will likely be considered better than AW-


Doom

Super Mario Bros/3/World

Sonic 2

Chrono Trigger

Secret of Mana

TLoZ: ALttP/OoT

Devil May Cry 3

Ninja Gaiden Black

Resident Evil REmake/4

Silent Hill 2

Dead Space

FFVII/VIII

God of War III

Gears of War 3

TES IV/V

Fallout 3


Need I go on?

I'm only interested in this game if it has good co-op, so once I find that out, maybe I'll agree.

@Setzera I hope squads come back. A lot easier on me since I don't play cod nearly enough to be any good at it.
