CoD Fans Wanted Innovation, So Here Comes The Exosuit

Perhaps the most talked-about new feature in the upcoming Call of Duty is the exosuit, a futuristic piece of equipment that grants superhuman skills.

It's obviously a departure for the series, even though it seems Advanced Warfare has taken a page from Crytek's book. After all, the nanosuit in the Crysis games wasn't much different.

This is the kind of change fans demanded. Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey tells GameSpot that the exosuit was indeed a response to gamers asking for some freshness and innovation:

"We had heard loud and clear from fans that they wanted change, they wanted innovation; that we needed to bring something new to Call of Duty. And change is scary sometimes, right? I can't say everybody thought it was the right idea on day one, but I'm pretty sure most people think it's the right idea today."

Condrey calls the latest CoD installment a "huge evolution" over past entries, and he reminds everyone that development actually began way back in 2011. They were thinking of an exosuit before it became more of a mainstream item:

"Three years ago, the exo wasn't in the mind's eye of the public like it is today. You think about it now; it's films like Elysium and Edge of Tomorrow and Oblivion; and you see it all over the news of the military adopting it and healthcare. So everyone's talking about the exo. But three years ago, it was a big step."

Well, it should indeed help. This franchise really suffered a blow with last year's Ghsots and it's in need of a pick-me-up. Is the exosuit just the tonic Call of Duty requires to remain the FPS kingpin?

No better way to innovate than steal someone elses work!

I was kinda hoping "innovation" would mean something new, or better gameplay. You'll know they did nothing new to the core engine if quick scoping is still present.

"Ghsots" typo near the end. It'll have to do amazing things to grab my attention. No idea why I even bought Ghosts. Maybe just out of tradition at this point since I'm even worse at BF or KZ or MOH.
