It seems Infinity Ward isn't too bothered with how realistic Modern Warfare 2 turns out to be. They recognize that what they're out to do is to entertain people, and so realism will be taking a back seat to entertainment this time around.
"We go for authenticity not realism," said studio head Vince Zampella in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine. "We're not making a sim, we're making entertainment. We want it to look real like an action movie."
Zampella also explained that the more futuristic weapons found in Modern Warfare 2 won't be a hindrance to what they're trying to accomplish. Neither does it ruin the game's authenticity. In fact, it adds more to the entertainment, just like in an action movie where the hero does a lot of things that are a little over the top.
"It makes for a great movie," Zampella said. It also makes for a great game too, I imagine. We'll find out when Modern Warfare 2 comes out this November 10 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
