Quick Hits- Call of Duty franchise gets a third developer, Child of Light release date

codThe Call of Duty franchise has become a yearly affair, rotating titles between developers Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Now Activision is adding to the mix, bringing on board for this year’s entry Sledgehammer Games, which is no stranger to the franchise, having worked on Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward. A statement from Activision said: “For the first time, this year’s Call of Duty game, and future Call of Duty games, are being built on a three year development cycle. There are several advantages to doing this, the first of course quality. This will give our designers more time to envision and to innovate.” With Sledgehammer doing the 2014 edition of Call of Duty, Treyarch would follow with the next title in 2015 and Infinity Ward developing the 2016 entry.

 

 

Ubisoft’s Child of Light, the downloadable RPG inspired by Final Fantasy VI, will become available on April 30 for the price of $14.99 (USD). The game will release on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and PC. The game uses the same engine that powered Rayman Legends and Origins. The same engine, Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, will also power the upcoming Valiant Hearts. The new trailer with the release date is shown below (trailer courtesy of ubisoft).
