FlatOut 3 Dev Says Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Is A Beta Game

So most of us gamers by now know that Call of Duty will always be a annual rehashed release under the publishing wings of Activision. You can't hope that the game will be anything more than a $60 DLC pack. Well, Team 6's CEO, Ronnie Nelis, called out Sledgehammer, Infinity Ward and Raven Software, saying that Modern Warfare 3 was nothing more than a beta.

According to DSOGaming, the accusation comes just shortly after the release of Team 6's FlatOut 3 for PC and just before the new update, which is aimed to fix a couple of issues regarding gameplay, the graphics as well as the physics. The comment from Nelis is as follows..."is not a beta (try MW3..), not a full priced game, and many people enjoy and really appreciate it"

Uh, okay.

The thing is, Team 6 is kind of in the same position as Sledgehammer Games...you see, Flatout isn't really their original creation but that of BugBear Studios -- a group which is no longer attached to the property. The fact that the comment comes on the heels of the studio announcing a patch update to fix physics, graphics and stability, also doesn't bode well for the credibility of the accusation. As some users pointed out, it's like a meth user calling a heroin addict a junkie. Same thing, different name.

However, I must point out that Modern Warfare 3 is the third game running on identical software and design infrastructures as the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Despite claims of engine upgrades a lot of it looks, runs and plays the same, and they even recycled old assets from Call of Duty 4 in Modern Warfare 3. I think Nelis would have been more correct saying that their game wasn't a full priced, annual rehash like Modern Warfare 3, as opposed to saying it's not a beta like Modern Warfare 3.

Anyways, both games are out now (one cheaper than the other) and you can check out a review of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to see whether or not it plays like a beta.
