Sledgehammer Games co-founder Glen Schofield will depart Activision at the end of the month.
Schofield, who was also the former vice president and GM at Dead Space studio EA Visceral Games, has been with Activision since the company purchased his studio in November 2009.
He and Michael Condrey, who is now in an executive role at Activision, formed Sledgehammer Games in 2009. Back in February, like Condrey, he had moved on from the studio into an executive role at the publisher after finishing up Call of Duty: WW2.
Now, he is leaving the company.
“I feel it’s time to try something new,” Schofield stated on Twitter. “I’ll be leaving Activision end of December and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.”
In an interview with Gamespot, Schofield said he has “nothing but good things to say” about his time at Activision,” but after nine years of Call of Duty games he “needs a change.”
“I seriously am going to take my time finding my next gig,” he said. “Make sure it’s exactly what I want to do. I still have a couple good games in me.”
Best of luck to him.
