Glen Schofield, former General Manager of the EA-owned Visceral Games, doesn’t seem to have any regrets regarding his depature from the Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno developer. “We haven’t looked back once,” he says of his and COO Michael Condrey’s surprise switch from EA to rival Activision. “I had a great time at EA, we made some excellent games, and I’m proud of the work we accomplished there,” he says, but with Activision offering up the opportunity to “start a studio from scratch, create the culture, hire the team and build a state of the art game making facility” along with the chance to act as both General Manager and product Executive Producer, saying ‘no’ apparently wasn’t an option.
“It was something I just couldn’t turn down.”
Schofield also shares a few vague words about the action game they’ve been hiring for (which recent rumors say may be a Call of Duty title), “…we committed to delivering something that surpasses our previous titles in terms of critical and commercial success. We believe the game will be quite unique and will bring something new and exciting to our fans.”
