Infinity Ward doesn’t feel "tied to making Call of Duty"

Robert Bowling, creative strategist at Infinity Ward, has revealed that the developer may decide to work on something completely different following completion of Modern Warfare 2, admitting the studio “doesn’t feel tied to making Call of Duty games.”

Speaking to Develop, Bowling commented: "Once this is done, maybe we’ll see about doing something new. If we do want to do something else, then we will do it. We don’t feel tied to making Call of Duty games."

So, when can we expect the company to hang up its night vision goggles and vacate the battlefield? According to Bowling, not until developing Call of Duty games "stops being fun.”

"We still make Call of Duty games because we’re having fun doing it. And when it stops being fun, we’ll move onto something else,” he said.

Elsewhere, Bowling also touched on moving Modern Warfare 2 to other platforms – such as the Wii – admitting that Infinity Ward feels Nintendo’s console is unable to provide a cinematic experience equal to that available on other formats.

"If we felt like we could deliver the cinematic experience we were going for on other platforms, then we would gladly move to that platform," explained Bowling.

"Right now, we don’t think the Wii can deliver the exact experience that we’re doing. We like to be very equal across all platforms, and if it’s not equal then we won’t do it."

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is due out on November 10.
