With Black Ops Cold War releasing this November, the subject of what the engine will be like has popped up.
After watching the beautiful reveal trailer, there wasn't much gameplay to see.
However, new gameplay details and footage has emerged on the internet and now Activision has discussed the engine in more depth.
Black Ops Cold War Engine
The new engine is NOT the same one as the one used in Modern Warfare.
Treyarch’s Dan Bunting says that they are not fully using Modern Warfare’s engine.
The teams share ‘underlying technology,’ but the engine and technology being used in Black Ops Cold War was created back in 2015.
It means that the engine in use is more closer to the Black Ops 3 engine. Bunting says the team worked hard to revamp and rebuild a lot of their tools starting with Black Ops 3 - they claim Black Ops Cold War showcases the power of what they were able to do
The focus for the team was on making tools and specific functionality, rather than making a new engine.
The toolset built was created with the intention to work on future platforms such as the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Black Ops Cold War will feature the latest display and next-gen technology, supporting 4K and HDR across the board.
