High Moon Studios Developing Advanced Warfare For PS3, 360
We know Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
But for the record, they're only handling the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions. Activision has enlisted the help of developer High Moon Studios to produce the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.
Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey told MCV that thanks to High Moon's involvement, his team doesn't have to worry about whether or not their full vision will work on older hardware:
"In development, you often constrain ideas--whether it's design ideas or technology solutions--to the lowest common denominator. If you develop for all platforms, often it is the weakest platform that can be the constraint. It is the inverse for us with Advanced Warfare, where we have been designing for the highest resources, the highest-powered console generation. It has allowed us the freedom to think bigger and to go after new technologies."
If you're wondering, High Moon Studios has produced some fine games in the past, including many of the highly entertaining Transformers installments. And this isn't the first time two different teams handled the next-gen and previous-gen entries respectively; while Respawn Entertainment designed Titanfall for the Xbox One and PC, Bluepoint Games developed the Xbox 360 iteration.
