Infinity Ward is aiming straight at Halo 3
with the release of Call of Duty 4
in November, according to the developer's studio head and president, Grant Collier.
Speaking in an interview, Collier said:
?Some people say ?Oh gosh, there?s this big competition out there and so we should move our ship date because we?re feeling uncomfortable?. We love competition. I think for the 360 it?s pretty much Halo 3
that?s the competition so we?re going after who we think are at the top of the game right now and we want to take those guys on. On PC I guess I?m hearing a lot about Crysis
right now... On PS3 we?re number one.?
It's just possible that the chaps at Free Radical might have something to say about that with the PS3 release of Haze
imminent, but SPOnG has to give Collier points for bullishness.
Collier also explained why CoD4
isn't under development for the Wii, stating, ?The strength of the Wii is the control system, being able to have that precision control. If we were making a Wii game we would focus heavily on the control scheme. We wanted to make a game that, graphically, was the best game across as many platforms as possible, and where we can really make things look amazing is on the PC, the PS3 and Xbox 360.?
