Sledgehammer Games’ Glen Schofield has spoken out on the difference between Modern Warfare 3 and the competition, or, rather, it appears, the Frostbite 2 engine used in EA’s Battlefield 3.
Speaking to AusGamers, Schofield said “I’ve seen that trick [with reference to naming engines] and the bottom line is, [Modern Warfare 3] will run at 60 frames a second. Not sure any of our competitors will. You don’t ship an engine, you ship a game.”
“Not sure I’ve seen any of our competitors on the console especially running at 60 frames a second and I’d be a little scared at this point – in June – if I was looking forward to a particular game that wasn’t on the console and running at 60,” Schofield added.
“And I think 60 is our competitive edge and you just don’t throw that away.”
Do you agree? Sure, nice smooth action is always welcome but developers often compromise in other areas to achieve that hallowed frame rate. The battle for this year’s big FPS is just warming up…
