Sledgehammer's Call of Duty dev team working on an "unannounced high-end console title"...

Sledgehammer Games – the Activision studio that teamed-up with Infinity Ward on Modern Warfare 3's development – is now hiring for positions within its Call of Duty team on an “unannounced high-end console title”.

“We are actively recruiting top talent for our Call of Duty development team,” reads one job ad for a Generalist Engineer position at the studio.

A paired job ad for a Senior Online Engineer then reads: “The candidate will be involved in the creation of multiplayer game modes and online community features for an unannounced high-end console title.”

It's safe to conclude, then, that Sledgehammer is on the Call of Duty warpath once again after aiding Infinity Ward with the development of MW3's single-player campaign, and that the Call of Duty project it's undertaking is not DLC for an existing Call of Duty title but a new game instead.

The mystery that remains is whether this unannounced CoD title is the sci-fi, third-person action game that Sledgehammer shelved earlier in the year to focus on MW3's development, or an all-new CoD project from scratch. Judging by General Manager, Glen Schofield's most recent admittance that Activision and Sledgehammer will "probably cancel" the previous third-person project, we'll bet good money it's a new CoD game altogether.

More as we get it...

That would be genuinely awesome. I love the idea of long-haul space travel in a first-person shooter.

COULD be very cool, as long a they take a "realistic" take on the future, with bullets and long haul space travel instead of lasers and lightspeed.

@Post 1: So, basically you're looking forward to Sony and EA games then?

I hear what you're saying though. Sledgehammer Games could actually be CoD's last hope in a couple of years. By the time 2012 comes around, will we be so bored by the Infinity Ward and Treyarch formula that a new deveoloper breathing life into the series will be a welcome relief?

It'll be interesting to see what Sledgehammer is planning if the game still intends to be in the action/adventure genre... lots of Tomb Raider block puzzles to push around and locked doors to open?!?!

bored bored bored.  modern warfare was a great FPS.  world at war was ok for multiplayer, but the single player was abit meh.  modern warfare 2 was, well, crap imo.  the single player was rubbish in terms of level design, ai, it's length and storyline.  it was a 2 year old game (mw1) with new maps and a few new online features.   and then they have the cheek to charge over £10 for map packs, where 2/5s of it was from the 2year old game i mentioned before.  i think they NEED these new teams to maybe one day breathe life into it again.  Black Ops is the last chance COD gets from me haha.  much more excited by other games on the way now, such as:  Dead Space 2, Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, Gran Tourismo 5, ModNation Racers, Crysis 2, Little Big Planet 2, and more i just can't think of.  I think they only people really left playing COD are actually not really old enough to be playing it lol.  Sorry, but complete lack of interest here!
