Black Ops 2 and BF3 devs cheap shot
When we first learned that Black Ops 2 was to have a futuristic setting it wasn’t long before the negative comments started to come in, and while this part of the game has been left alone for some time it seems as though no one has told DICE that. The reason we say this is because the general manager of Battlefield 3, Karl Magnus thought it would be good to take a cheap shot at the next Call of Duty title.
He believes that Black Ops 2 will not innovate by just changing the era, as they need to have an overall change of the game itself. Now while there are those who believe this to be true having someone criticize you when their own company is also guilty of the same thing seems a bit hypocritical, well that’s what this article believes.
Many fans of Call of Duty would say that DICE has copied them with the Battlefield franchise, but would you agree with them on that? Okay, we know that the Call of Duty series has lost its way over the past few years, and while sales have still been impressive, there’s no denying that we feel as though we have seen it all before.
DICE are very competent developers, but do you think they will be worried about Black Ops 2 because not only could the game pull players away from BF3 but also their upcoming title Medal of Honour Warfighter as well? Then there’s the fact that heading a few years into the future could appeal to a new audience, with suggestions that those who love the Halo franchise could also consider a Call of Duty title for a change.
To help keep you grounded and let you know that you are playing a COD title then it’s almost certain that Black Ops 2 will have a Zombies Mode. Personally I’m not a lover of this mode but millions of other gamers don’t care what little old me thinks.
Do you take any notice of these cheap shots? While it’s no surprise that the likes of DICE will come out with statements to try and deter gamers from playing such games, it does seem a little hard to swallow when they should practice what they preach.
