Robert Bowling, who previously worked as a creative strategist at Modern Warfare studio Infinity Ward between 2006 and 2012, has shared his thoughts on the future of Call Of Duty. On Twitter, Bowling said he believes the Call of Duty franchise is in need of a systemic overhaul.

"We need more than iteration, we need revitalization," Bowling said in response to a tweet from Modern Warzone about where Call Of Duty is currently at. He added that the series would greatly benefit from refocusing on "core gameplay" rather than "content gateways".

"We used to treat our players like community and not consumers. We brought them in to the fold for map feedback not market feedback," the developer explained.

Bowling is currently a studio head at Midnight Society, a new developer that was recently founded by controversial streamer Dr. Direspect alongside former Halo and Call Of Duty alum. The hope of this new group is to "usher in the new era of online PvP multiplayer titles," which is certainly admirable. If Bowling truly believes in community first, then I look forward to seeing what he and his team come up with next.
