Sledgehammer’s Schofield: EA “treated me like shit”

Wednesday, 21st July 2010 09:43 GMT By Johnny Cullen


What are these things on our fingertips? They’re called claws. You need claws to cling on to burning bridges.

Sledgehammer Games boss Glenn Schofield has said via Twitter that when he was GM of EA’s Redwood studio, now more commonly known as Visceral Games, the company “treated” him “like shit.”

In a tweet, he said:

“Wow, a year ago today I left EA. What a day that was. They really treated me like shit even after creating Dead Space 4 them.”

He then added in a later tweet:

“Seems my tweet got some attention. Didn’t mean to. But after a year of EA bashing us it’s good to get it off my chest.”

Burn, innit. Just tread lightly at Activision, yeah? Infinity Ward says hi.

Sledgehammer is currently working on its first project, a new Call of Duty title, and has recently posted a job listing suggesting it’s working on another game for consoles.

    Yes, I’m sure Activision will treat him with the respect he deserves. lol

    Also, further lols at him not expecting the attention, I’d bet pounds to pence that Acti PR had some role to play in it… /takes off silver foil hat

    Oh yeah, I’m sure EA is the NICE multi billion dollar company. Complete unicorn farm over there, for sure.

    @Anders he was the creator and executive producer, mind. He’s not saying he did all the work.
