Sledgehammer Games likely to be working on the next Call Of Duty title

Ever since that sordid business with developer Infinity Ward imploding and the studio heads Vince Zampella and Jason West flipping publisher Activision the finger as they went out the door, a large amount of speculation was cast over what would happen to the Call Of Duty series when developer Treyarch weren’t in charge of development.

Recently formed developer Sledgehammer Games, which includes talent from Dead Space developer Visceral Games, has put out an ad, asking for extra talent to work on the ‘next Call of Duty’.

It makes sense that the Sledgehammer Games would be working on the new Call Of Duty due this year, since not only is this Treyarch’s ‘off-year’ but also Infinity Ward is still in the midst of rebuilding and rehiring; putting them in no kind of shape to develop a new entry in the series.

According to studio head Glen Schofield, Sledgehammer’s COD will include military situations based on “real stuff”. “Working w/ military guys – their stories will blow you away. Names/locations will change but some situations going in the game – real stuff!” Schofield said.

Having been scorned by far too many cynical cut ‘n’ paste efforts where the CoD franchise has been confirmed, I can safely say that unless this does something different and worthwhile, i’ll be far too busy having gameplay orgasms with Battlefield 3 to care.

Just sayin’.
