Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Exosuit Came About Because Fans Asked For Change

by on 08/22/2014

Sledgehammer Games Co-Founder Michael Condrey said the exosuit that grants players superhuman abilities in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is Sledgehammer’s response to Call of Duty fans asking the company to shake up the formula.
“We had heard loud and clear from fans that they wanted change, they wanted innovation; that we needed to bring something new to Call of Duty,” Condrey told GameSpot. “And change is scary sometimes, right? I can’t say everybody thought it was the right idea on day one, but I’m pretty sure most people think it’s the right idea today.”
Condrey said that when development started on the game three years ago, the exosuit seemed like more of a stretch. But now media and even the real world have caught up and exosuits are becoming a more popular topic.
“Three years ago, the exo wasn’t in the mind’s eye of the public like it is today,” he said. “You think about it now; it’s films like Elysium and Edge of Tomorrow and Oblivion; and you see it all over the news of the military adopting it and healthcare. So everyone’s talking about the exo. But three years ago, it was a big step.”
