Activision has released a video for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which focuses on the game’s weapon proficiencies. The progression allows the player to customize the gameplay experience with weapon leveling unlocks, and using proficiencies which provide weapons with new attributes. Each weapon will contain an experience bar, so the better you get, the better your weapons gets as well. It’s all very interesting, and you can watch it below the break. Modern Warfare 3 is out on November 8.

Sledgehammer Games now has a website and a logo. Amazing scenes.
The new Activision studio was formed when Visceral’s Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey jumped ship from EA.
There’s little on there aside from a picture of a man with a sledgehammer for a head. Beggars can’t be choosers, remember.
No Sledgehammer products have been announced as yet.

Remember back in July when Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey left EA for Activision? Well, it’s finally been revealed by the company what the two former Visceral Games execs will be doing.
The duo will co-head new studio Sledgehammer Games, which is currently at work on an unannounced project. Schofield takes on the role of vice president and general manager, while Condrey will serve as vice president and COO.
“Michael and I are thrilled to be building a brand new studio for Activision”, said Schofield. “This was an opportunity for us to assemble a world-class team made up of developers with a proven track record in delivering top-rated games.
“We know what it takes to develop a Game of the Year title, and we also know that the title needs the support of a strong publisher to make the game a success.”
“Activision Blizzard’s independent studio model is very empowering,” added Condrey. “We have a fantastic new studio facility, the foundation for a world-class team and the backing of the industry’s most profitable game publisher.
“This was a rare opportunity we couldn’t pass up and we are thankful for the support the Activision organization has shown us.”

EA has responded to requests from VG247 regarding the departure of Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey.
According to a spokesperson:
“I can confirm that they are exiting EA. It takes a team of talented people to make a highly-rated game like Dead Space. The team at Visceral are currently working on Dante’s Inferno, Dead Space Extraction and new titles to be announced at a later date.
“Production is uninterrupted on Dante’s Inferno and Dead Space Extraction. SVP Nick Earl continues to lead the Visceral Games Studio.”
So there ya have it. Confirmed.
Now we are awaiting word from Activison regarding what their positions with the newly formed studio entails.
Update: According to an email we received from an Activision spokesperson:
“Glen Schofield along with Michael Condrey will lead the studio which will be creating a new game based on one of Activision’s existing franchises.
“We will be providing more details regarding the game at a later date.”
No other details were forthcoming, other than Activision’s plans on continuing its revamp of proven titles which is not news, really.

Reports surfacing around the net are claiming that EA’s Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have left Redwood Shores for positions at Activison’s new Bay Area studio.
According to sources close to Gamespot, Visceral Games employees were informed that general manager Glen Schofield and COO Michael Condrey were leaving to work at the as of yet unnamed studio.
Schofield was the man behind Dead Space, and was recently busy talking up Dante’s Inferno.
EA nor Activision have commented on the situation yet, but we have contacted both so hopefully one or the other will get back with us soon.
UPDATE: Kotaku has word from EA: “EA has been nurturing great developers for 27 years and making room for the next generation is an important part of that process,” said EA’s head of corporate communications, Jeff Brown. “It takes a team to make a great game like Deas Space and and there’s a stunning array of talent in the Visceral studio — creative leaders who now have the opportunity to step into the spotlight and have their talent recognized.”
Still, not much of a comment. We’re still waiting for one on this end.
