• Call of Duty: Ghosts engine is not new, rather significantly upgraded from the last engine

    Don't be surprise why the graphics of Call of Duty: Ghosts didn't look much like a next-gen game. There's a reason why the game looks like the one everyone played in 2007, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

    Even though after promoting with "next gen Call of Duty engine", Infinity Ward revealed that the game engine is just an updated version of the IDtech engine previously used in Modern Warfare 3.

    According to Examiner, an Infinity Ward developer revealed this with an interview with the Official Playstation Magazine. The developer said:

    "When we’re talking about a new engine we’re talking about upgrading significant systems within in that engine. We’re not talking about throwing it all away and saying we’re starting from the ground up".

    "impossible to develop a new engine from the ground up in a two year cycle".

    "What we do is we say, ‘okay what are the things that are significant and that we would say that are encompassing of the engine or its visual quality?"

    "Are those being upgraded in a significant way? Alright, then I think that warrants that we’ve got a new engine on our hands".


    Call of Duty: Ghosts revealed at the XBOX One event and will be releasing on November 13 for PC, current-gen and next-gen consoles.

      I didn't go through the Article because I already made my mind up on what I have to say, no matter how much improvement they make, Call Of Duty's graphics will always look dated.

      The summary is that the game engine is just an updated version of the IDtech engine previously used in Modern Warfare 3.

      The poll options are too drastic, obviously the changes are very significant but definitely not better than BF4 or even 3 for that matter. That just shows how backdated the older engine was.

      hmm, still the same old id tech 4 of doom 3? But from the looks of it, they certainly made lots of improvement. I guess they though Carmack would sell id tech 5 to them over time . I guess that's not happening.

      Now you went too far. You can say: CoD 4: Modern Warfare looked better than Ghosts.

      They can only go so far with older coding. I doubt this will have tessellation or any dx11 features as most cod engines are open GL (correct me if I am wrong though) Not to mention cod makers never did improve on visuals I mean if you look at it all the newer cods after the 4th installment look almost the same with just some more SHINE "excessive HDR".

      Lets just hope that they do improve the gameplay though so its fun, all cod titles have been boring after the 4th. BF on the other hand has some good moments especially on multiplayer, the 4th should be good and should look great as well.
