Sledgehammer tooling up for their own Call Of Duty
It appears that Sledgehammer Games might finally be preparing to take the lead on a Call Of Duty game of their own.
Around ten separate job listings have appeared on LinkedIn with the studio looking to fill some temporary roles like weapons and vehicle artist, level designer, environmental artist and senior animator.
Rumours in the past have indicated that Sledgehammer were working on a Call Of Duty game of their own and they shelved it to aid Infinity Ward in putting out Modern Warfare 3.
Given Capcom's recent comments that development on the next-gen takes between eight and ten times more man-hours of effort than it did on Xbox 360 and PS3 it is entirely feasible that Activision could be inserting another studio into the rotation in order to maintain Call Of Duty's annual release cycle.
