Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare leaks, Sledgehammer CEO responds

Some details about the latest addition to the Call of Duty series have appeared online a week before the game is scheduled to launch.

Another game leak, and this time it's the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare that's been on the receiving end. Sunday saw a livestream broadcast by Twitch user Afuny29, which showed gameplay of the new CoD, and it was swiftly reported on by YouTubers. Spoilers below, be warned.

YouTuber TmarTn talks about the footage he saw in the broadcast in his video below, speaking of the 'DNA Bomb' and how it works.

The DNA Bomb is a killstreak rewarded after a player makes 30 kills in one life using a gun. Once activated the DNA Bomb kills all enemies on the opposite team, and leaves behind a green mist. It's uncertain what this mist actually does, if anything, at this time.

Check out TmarTn's video below.

Another leak involved the ability to activate a Paintball Effect which can be switched on and off, as well as a full listing of the weapon camos.

Call of Duty: Advanced is being developed by Sledgehammer Games, and its CEO Glen Schofield wasn't too enamoured by the leaks in the tweet below:

In response to some fans' suggestions the leak has satiated players' desire for more info, Schofield  said: 'I realize that but stealing and releasing is not the answer.'

A further tweet from the Sledgehammer CEO read: 'It is a big deal to us because discovery while playing is part of the fun. It will all be good, just saying.'

Thanks, Eurogamer.
