Michael Condrey, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, has confirmed that a 3rd person option will be coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. While this option won’t be available at launch, this option is expected to become available after the game’s release.
It’s no secret that Sledgehammer Games was working on a third-person Call of Duty game (called Call of Duty: Vietnam, and was under development for six-seven months until Activision asked the team whether it was interested in helping out with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3). And while this title never saw the light of day, it was pretty obvious that Sledgehammer had ‘something’ on its mind.
Our guess is that this mode will be added via a custom playlist. After all, Sledgehammer recently announced that a new playlist will be available in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare via which players will be able to enjoy the game’s MP without the use of the exoskeleton.
It will be interesting to see whether this third-person ‘experiment’ will spark players interest for a proper third-person Call of Duty game.
