"There are lists and lists of ideas that didn't make it in. There’s a mountain of them. You could go swimming in all of the ideas," enthuses Miles Leslie

when we ask about the ideation process season-to-season for the game, and if anything -- this time around -- was so outlandish it couldn't see the light of day.

Miles: Something we talked about was “what's the best way to continue telling the story?”.
For us continuing the narrative into multiplayer is brand new. And when I say multiplayer, I mean across Cold War and Warzone.
What was really interesting for us was our campaign really set up the world of Cold War and this really intriguing story with Perseus and everything that happened. And we wanted to use, again, Multiplayer and Warzone in really new ways to engage players in the story.
