Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty spin-off put on hold

You’d think we would be talking about Modern Warfare 3, but then, you would be wrong. Before Sledgehammer got drafted to join Infinity Ward to work on MW3, the San Francisco-based studio was creating an action/adventure spin-off for the highly popular series. Regardless, word has it that the virtually oblivious title has actually not been forgotten.

“Right now Sledgehammer’s 100% focused on Modern Warfare 3,” said Activision Publishing head Eric Hirshberg. “We haven’t announced the future slate or future plans for the studio. They were originally working on an extension of the Call of Duty franchise into an action/adventure genre and that’s a game I still want to play.”

And just to make it crystal clear, “all I can say is right now they’re 100% focused on Modern Warfare 3,” added Hirshberg.
