During E3 2019 we had the opportunity to chat with the creative director of DICE, Lars Gustavsson, who acknowledges that the Swedish studio takes on consideration of the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but as part of the usual competition they have with the saga of Activision. For his part, the director of development, Ryan McArthur, stressed that the key to success will always be to focus on satisfying their own community.
” This is the world we have always lived in since the first game. ” explained Gustavsson. ” It has always been healthy competition with other games. So it’s like … what I usually say is that it’s like running in a race. If you are Usain Bolt, you can not win races by looking at what happens in the other streets; You have to focus on what you do and you have to do it well, so we are inspired by what we see around us, but with War Winds, the Pacific, with Underground and all these initiatives I think we have something really solid for our players & quot ;. p>
It should be noted that Chapter 5 of the War Winds for Battlefield V, which will include the Pacific front of World War II, will debut in the fall, which seems to be located in the same Call launch window. of Duty: Modern Warfare.
” You can not ignore competitors in the race or your players. You can [focus on them] but it will be deviate from the plan, “McArthur added.” You have to compromise with your players, focus on what they want to play, give them the best version of that and, if you do So, you will be successful & quot ;, concluded
