High Moon Studios porting Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to PS3 and Xbox 360

While Sledgehammer Games is focused on creating a technically superior Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, the task of porting the upcoming shooter to the previous generation of consoles — PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (though not Wii U) — has been delegated to Activision’s High Moon Studios (via Game Informer).

High Moon Studios was originally a branch of Sierra Entertainment. After a period of independence, the studio was acquired by Vivendi, which was itself then acquired by Activision Blizzard, publisher of the Call of Duty franchise.

High Moon most recently developed Deadpool and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, both of which were generally well received. After years of focusing on third-person action games, Advanced Warfare will be a return to the studio’s roots in first person shooters, first evidenced in its steampunk Western FPS, Darkwatch: Curse of the West for PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set to release on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4 on November 4, 2014.
