Call of Duty in space? "I wouldn’t count it out," says executive producer
"Challenges are good," says executive producer Mark Rubin.
Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin has said the studio is happy to consider any possibility when starting the development of a new game--including space.
When asked about setting a Call of Duty game in space by UK newspaper Metro, Rubin said "yeah. It makes sense. I wouldn't count it out. Everything's on the table. When we start a new game every possibility's on the table. If we think that it'd be cool to have a battle over Jupiter, sure. Why not?"
Earlier in the interview, Rubin was discussing the new multiplayer modes in Call of Duty: Ghosts, saying that the multiplayer designers "loved the idea of environments" that featured full 3D movement. An opening section in the single-player campaign of Ghosts is set in space, and the game also features underwater scenes.
"But the grenades wouldn't work exactly right," continued Rubin. "Kill Streaks wouldn't work at all--can't have a helicopter in outer space. Or a dog for that matter." The idea of converting the existing Call of Duty mutliplayer to somewhere like space "does become a bit of a challenge," he said.
"Challenges are good," he added. "There might be ways around it. Maybe it's not just floating around in space, maybe it's [...] inside the space station."
Rubin said the idea of a space map could potentially become DLC, if it was worth the effort for the studio. "We could do it, but I don't know… will it be fun? And this is the party pooper version of the answer: you have to measure effort versus payout. Would it be worth that amount of work? Which involves rewriting all the scripts for all the Kill Streaks, potentially creating new art assets for all the Kill Streaks--which would take months--to make one level that's in space."
Infinity Ward discussed the game's 720p native resolution on the Xbox One version of the game with GameSpot earlier this week.
Call of Duty: Ghosts was launched for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U on Tuesday. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will follow at launch.
