We know Sledgehammer Games is developing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare .

But for the record, they're only handling the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions. Activision has enlisted the help of developer High Moon Studios to produce the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Sledgehammer co-founder Michael Condrey told MCV that thanks to High Moon's involvement, his team doesn't have to worry about whether or not their full vision will work on older hardware:

"In development, you often constrain ideas–whether it's design ideas or technology solutions–to the lowest common denominator. If you develop for all platforms, often it is the weakest platform that can be the constraint. It is the inverse for us with Advanced Warfare, where we have been designing for the highest resources, the highest-powered console generation. It has allowed us the freedom to think bigger and to go after new technologies."

If you're wondering, High Moon Studios has produced some fine games in the past, including many of the highly entertaining Transformers installments. And this isn't the first time two different teams handled the next-gen and previous-gen entries respectively; while Respawn Entertainment designed Titanfall for the Xbox One and PC, Bluepoint Games developed the Xbox 360 iteration.

Um…they are porting, no matter how the article reads. It's not as if High Moon is developing an entirely unique version of Advanced Warfare….

Boo! We want Darkwatch 2!

Activision has reduced this team so far from their potential.

But will it run at 720 resolution? Also, are they using the same engine? These are the questions we should be asking.

sigh, what a waste of such a brilliant studio!
hate it how antivision does this, same thing with raven software they put out some really unique creative games but just because they didnt sell well boom thats it your confined to doing just crappy ports!
come on, let them off the leash and give us singularity 2!

this is how all cross gen games should be developed though.
at least this way you dont have to worry about the next gen versions holding the game back like you did with say ACIV or watch dogs.
