Two’s company, but three’s a crowd. Could be in Call of Duty’s case, as a third developer might be stepping in to make the next title in the series. Now that Treyarch have had its turn this time, we may not be back to Infinity Ward for the next Modern Warfare, we’ll be over to Sledgehammer Games; the new kids on the block.
An advertisement for a job vacancy at Sledgehammer Games simply reads: “Would you like the chance to build and drive the studio community management effort for Sledgehammer and the next Call of Duty game?”
The company was set up in 2009 by Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey, both of whom worked on sci-fi horror Dead Space. Schofield has already said that the next Call of Duty will feature superior audio to Dead Space. As well as this, Call of Duty under Sledgehammer’s development will include “real stuff” in terms of the military simulation. I suppose after the ludicrous display from Black Ops, anything could be “real stuff” in comparison.
