Call of Duty: Ghosts won’t make use of always-online option

Infinity Ward has said the ability to use the always online option on next-gen consoles isn’t something the firm has explored just yet.

Speaking with Eurogamer during a Call of Duty: Ghosts demo, producer Mark Rubin said while it is something the firm may look into in the future, the team is focused on fun first, and not tech.

“It’s not really something we would explore just yet,” he said. “I’ll be the first to admit, we’re not the tech chasers. We’ve never been the most hi-tech, super graphics check-box list guys. We try to make fun first. Then if tech helps make fun better then great. If not then we don’t really need it.

“There’s interesting stuff out there. I’m totally engaged as a developer in what we could possibly do. But we’re going to take it safe and make sure it’s actually benefiting the game first before we just go check that box.”

For now, though, it’s not in the card for Ghosts – but a Wii U version is: a version Rubin said to “stay tuned” on.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is out in November and will release on PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
