Slegdehammer hiring for “Call of Duty first-person shooter”
When we think of action-adventure games, we generally see them as third-person affairs.
Apparently, Slegdehammer Games doesn’t share our viewpoint on viewpoints.
Sledgehammer recently posted a series of job listings over at Gamasutra, all of which included this snippet:
“We are actively recruiting top talent for our Call of Duty First Person Shooter development team. If you have a desire to work on the most successful FPS franchise in the history of video games, apply online. We’re always looking for great people.”
Aside from the series spreading its wings and moving into the action-adventure genre, little is known about what form Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty will take when it emerges from its development cocoon. Apparently, however, the game will be an “innovative take that will further broaden the audience for Call of Duty.”
Meaning, of course, that it will probably be playable on trees for people in indigenous island tribes, seeing as that’s the only way Call of Duty’s audience could get any broader.
