Turns Out Police Warfare Wasn’t Actually Fake
Back in February, an interesting video showing a pitch for a Call of Duty game set in modern day law enforcement surfaced, showing off how police warfare could actually be a viable direction for the franchise. The video was deemed fake and, up until yesterday, the world was fine with that. However, Police Warfare is real; it’s just not a Call of Duty.
Police Warfare is another game to join a growing list of Kickstarter projects. The game was originally pitched as a Call of Duty sequel, but has now turned into an individual multiplayer project, with developers formerly from Ubisoft, EA, Epic Games and Activision all working on it. The title “draws inspiration from the large scale, multiplayer experience of a title such as Battlefield 3, and combines it with the cops and robbers style of Grant Theft Auto and HEAT”.
Since it is a Kickstarter project this could potentially never see the light of day. However, it does look slightly interesting, and team-based multiplayer shooting is hard to look over. If the Kickstarter doesn’t work out, hopefully another publisher will see the potential and pick it up.
