Sledgehammer recruiting for next Call of Duty game

Tuesday, 6th December 2011 23:34 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Inevitably, Activision already has a new Call of Duty game on the cards – and Sledgehammer is on board.

Although the job listing cagily refers to “an unannounced high-end console title”, it also mentions that the ad is seeking new talent for Sledgehammer’s “Call of Duty development team”.

The job is focused on finding an engineer to take Call of Duty’s “online experience to a new level”, and create “Multiplayer game modes and online community features”.

It’s worth remembering that Sledgehammer had a third-person Call of Duty game in the works before jumping ship to assist with Modern Warfare 3.

The last few Call of Duty releases have seen Activision alternate between two studios, but for Modern Warfare 3, both Sledgehammer and Raven were brought on to assist Infinity Ward. The series is considered an annual release event, having set three successive records for biggest entertainment launch.

Thanks, That VideoGame Blog.

    Should be interesting to see if their sticking to the 3rd person CoD “adventure”/action title or if Sledgehammer will be making another FPS to alternate between Treyarchs and IW’s games!?

    I hope they don’t get turned into an assembly line unit. I think the top guys at Sledgehammer could create something really good if they weren’t limited by CoD-style constraints.

    My guess would be a new game that comes out in beween their yearly iterations. They need to increase profits, this is how they do it…well this and the Elite service!

    You know what I just realize, COD is the console version of World of Warcraft or is “becoming” the console version of World of Warcraft.
