With the highly anticipated upcoming debut of Call of Duty: Ghosts, new specs and aspects of the game are coming to light.
The games executive producer Mark Rubin revealed that the Xbox One version of the blockbuster first-person shooter series will include Kinect voice controls, according to OMX. The studio is looking into the development and exploration of voice-driven gameplay technologies in the future.
"We're doing some stuff, not really mentioning it yet," Rubin recently told OMX. "It's mostly menu stuff, so you can work all the menus with Kinect--that's a big thing that Microsoft's pushing. We need to see where it goes before we jump into it."
Rubin confirmed that Xbox One owners will be able to operate game's user interface using voice commands, but is not sure how far it will develop Kinect's functionality in relation to game use.
"We've never really been the company that thinks it has to be first in the line for tech," he said. "It's the tortoise and the hare thing, and we'd rather be the tortoise, take our time on the tech and make sure it's right.
"So we haven't jumped into that yet, but some really interesting things came up, some interesting ideas--especially the voice, there's a lot of potential for voice in the game, and I'm hoping we can explore that. Whether it makes it into this game, I'm not a 100 percent sure, but definitely in the future, I think there's some really cool stuff there," he said.
Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on November 5. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will soon after.
