Sledgehammer’s Third-Person Call of Duty Project Is Probably Cancelled
When Sledgehammer was founded at Activision a couple years ago, they started working on a third-person Call of Duty game. Then, after the Infinity Ward kerfuffle last year, they moved over to Modern Warfare 3. So what happened to that third-person game? Glen Schofield discussed it with CVG:
We’ll probably cancel it. They gave us the choice of: do you want to work on Modern Warfare 3, or do you want to continue working on this? And we really liked that. We liked what we were doing. It third person, probably set at a time that might have niched it too much. I bet that if we had kept going, within a month or two I probably would have switched the time period, but kept the gameplay. It had some really cool stuff.
Schofiel also said their next project would probably be another Call of Duty game that they would hopefully get all to themselves, which makes me wonder why they would cancel the third-person game. Why not just make it next? Eh?
