The Call of Duty series has been very successful, but a lot of people hate it. One of the oft-cited reasons for hating the series is repetitiveness. Fans claim every entry is more or less exactly the same as the last. While Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare caught some people’s attentions with a hint of something new, others continue to say this will just be another Call of Duty game like every other one we’ve seen.

That’s what makes this revelation from the developers so interesting.

In an interview with GameInformer, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield said they “approached [Advanced Warfare] like we would any new IP” and that “everything is brand new in the game.”

He clarified that there are core Call of Duty elements that will appear in the game, but they’ve approached it from a new perspective. In particular, he cited the pacing as one of the aspects that will be different from previous entries in the series.

What do you think? Will Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare be a fresh, new experience?
