Dev Defends Modern
Warfare 2 Length on IGN
hears from Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling about the
length of the campaign in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
, which they
speculate is not likely to be longer than the approximately six hour campaign in
the first Modern Warfare, in spite of the game's premium pricing
(thanks Ralph). Bowling tells them: "We try and focus on the experience we're
trying to deliver, and we really let the story dictate how long the game is."
When asked about the criticism of the length of the first Modern Warfare,
Bowling says: "We never go into development saying 'We're going to make a 20
hour game because people want a 20 hour game' – we want to deliver an intense
experience where you walk away and go 'wow, I want to play more'."
