Infinity Ward Likens Call of Duty To Football, "Can’t Change Too Many Of The Core Rules"

In case you didn't already know, a new Call of Duty game is launching this November. Can you believe it? I know, neither can I.
Okay, enough sarcasm.
Mark Rubin, executive producer at Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward, recently spoke to OXM on the iterative nature of Activision's annual franchise, explaining why they can't veer too far from the series' core formula.
There is the obvious truth that if this were football, and next year they decided we only want seven players a side and you can use your hands, I don’t think people would want to go to many of those games. So we can’t change too many of the core rules, and the core rules are really simple. You’re a player, it’s in first-person, you have a weapon in your hand and you run around shooting other people.If you haven't already done so, be sure to check out the recently-released trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts' new Squads mode. I must confess, it does looks quite interesting and may just be that added bit of freshness the series needs.
