Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Dev Responds to Titanfall "Ripoff" Claims
"Not worried about it. When people play it in November, it will speak for itself."
When Activision announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back in May, comparisons to Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall were immediately made, with claims flying that Advanced Warfare was an imitation of Titanfall because it was future-focused and had mechs.
Now, the studio behind this year's Call of Duty, Sledgehammer Games, has responded to a criticism that Advanced Warfare is a "ripoff" of Titanfall. Advanced Warfare and Titanfall are two very different experiences and people will realize that when they play, according to Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey.
"No matter how hard you try and try, people will always be convinced that Advanced Warfare is a ripoff of Titanfall," someone on Twitter wrote to Condrey. He replied, "Not worried about it. When people play it in November, it will speak for itself."
Titanfall launched in March for Xbox One and PC, before coming to Xbox 360 in April. Advanced Warfare, on the other hand, will be released across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC on November 4.
