We couldn't let this one go unnoticed. As the release of Call of Duty: World At War edges ever closer, Infinity Ward Community Manager, Robert Bowling, has increasingly become edgier and edgier about some miscommunications that tend to see the IW developed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare mixed in with Activision and Treyarchs WWII update to the franchise.
have the full run-down
on just what has Bowling so upset, but it really is awesome to see people from development studios utterly unconcerned about what they say in regards to people employed at their publishing houses. From Kotaku:
And what set off Bowling was when Heller, in an interview with CVG, said bolt-action rifles in Modern Warfare were not one-shot kill weapons, as they are in World at War...
"WTF are you talking about?! "in previous Call of Dutys blah blah blah". First of all, you didn't work on "previous Call of Dutys", so don't talk as if you're down with how / why things were designed the way they were. Second, you're completely fucking wrong.
Bolt Action rifles are one hit kills in every Call of Duty we (Infinity Ward) made!!"
Awesome. Hit up the supplied link above for the full explosion from Bowling.
