Leaked trailer calls for early announcement.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Following a leaked trailer, Activision has officially announced Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC release on November 4.

The game, developed by Sledgehammer Games “specifically for next-gen consoles and PC,” follows a future where both technology and tactics have evolved to usher in a new era of combat. Set in 2054, a private military corporation has emerged with the power to rescue humanity from a devastated world struggling to rebuild after a global attack on its military and infrastructure. As an advanced soldier, you are empowered with new, cutting-edge exoskeleton abilities, technological advancements, and high-tech gear. You’ll join a specialized unit committed to restoring order in a state of advanced warfare.

“We’ve made several key decisions with an eye towards creative excellence on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare,” Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg said in a press release. “We’ve really approached this game differently. This is our first three-year development cycle. It’s our first time with Sledgehammer Games at the creative helm. And we’re shaking up the formula in several ways. New core gameplay mechanics with the exoskeleton suit. A riveting new story. An iconic new character played by one of the world’s best actors in Kevin Spacey. We’re having a lot of fun making this game, and we think the world is going to have even more fun playing it.”
