Modern Warfare 3 collaboration chosen over Sledgehammer Games' third-person CoD project...
Glen Schofield, the General Manager of Activision's Sledgehammer Games studio, has revealed that the developer will “probably cancel” the third-person Call of Duty game it was working on before it jumped aboard with Infinity Ward to help develop Modern Warfare 3.
“We'll probably cancel it,” Schofield told CVG. “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.”
Nothing was ever publicly seen of the project, although industry speculation indicated that it was a departure from the series' modern combat stomping grounds in favour of a sci-fi aesthetic. Nonetheless, even if the project does end up getting cancelled, Schofield is still keen for Sledgehammer to build its own game and remain with the Call of Duty series.
“I think that we will work alone on our next project,” he said. “This game has allowed both Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games to hire, and we hired really strong teams, both of us. We needed to come together on this one, but since then we've both grown, we're both over 100 people now. Initially we weren't fully functional because we had to learn a new engine. Now we have, I think the best thing that could happen for Activision would be for us to both go off and make our own game. Whether that's a Call of Duty game or not is up in the air. I plan to continue working on Call of Duty.”
