Yeah, yeah, DICE has the Frostbite 2 engine. So what? Do you really think the new Call of Duty won't stack up with its 6-year-old engine?
Developers have done a lot with that engine and they've got more updates in store for this year's Modern Warfare 3 . Infinity Ward boss Robert Bowling stated before that it's "counterproductive" to make a new CoD engine and instead, it's better to keep updating the current one. So it'd be wrong to think MW3 uses the "same" engine, as Bowling says in a new Twitter update :
"We haven't gone into detail on the engine yet but we've moved beyond the MW2 engine and added a lot of cool stuff for MW3."
Remember that a whole lot of the features included in Battlefield 3 might be seen in MW3; destructible environments and more vehicles have been rumored. Maybe we'll get a great look at the game tonight, when the new CoD is unveiled during Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals. They better show us some gameplay, damnit!
