Call of Duty: Warzone keeps on producing numbers for Activision. The free-to-play battle royale game has been out for just over a year and has stacked up over 100 million players during its timeframe. With the growth of the game, developer Raven Software has had to bring in some new hires.
In an interview with VGC, Raven creative director Amos Hodge discussed the growth and how the studio is keeping up with it. Hodge stated: “I can tell you we’ve been hiring like crazy at Raven. We have jobs posted all over the place and we’re looking for new talent If any of your readers out there are interested… we have more ideas than we can do.”
The success of Warzone can’t be undersold. However, with the free-to-play nature of the game and being a game as a service style product, Raven and Activision must always be coming up with new ideas to retain their player base and keep them engaged on the product. Now that both PlayStation and Xbox players can play the game without even having an Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus subscription, there is even more pressure on the studio to come up with cool ideas so that it doesn’t lose its player base.
