You can tell Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games is itching to show off the game’s highly anticipated competitive multiplayer. It’s why you play Call of Duty after all, right?
We still don’t have a lot to go off of, other than a few words from co-studio head Michael Condrey who said “the Advanced soldier which [their] E3 demo showcased is the Advanced soldier you’ll see in multiplayer,” and that the studio “wanted to make a really fast paced CoD game.”
But earlier today, Condrey tweeted out an image of Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer end-of-match scoreboard from a match played during a visit from various competitive Call of Duty players that gives us at least a few new details:

Clearly, it appears that Capture the Flag will return as a 6 vs. 6 game mode in Advanced Warfare this Fall. CTF never quite made it into Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts’ last year, as it was replaced by a similar game type called Blitz, but as a popular mode amongst the competitive crowd, it looks like Sledgehammer is happy to bring it back.
In addition, you’ll notice the two opposing factions: Atlas and Sentinel. Thus far, we know Atlas is the fictional private military corporation run by Jonathan Irons, played by actor Kevin Spacey, but Sentinel’s exact role in the fiction has yet to be determined. Advanced Warfare’s single player campaign will obviously sort that out.
We can also confirm that Michael Condrey can pull a positive K/D, while playing against pros, so that’s good!
Happy to see the return of traditional CTF? What other game modes would you like to see in Advanced Warfare?
