Sledgehammer to work into the Call Of Duty rotation with Infinity Ward and Treyarch

Three-year, three studio cycle gives devs more time to "innovate"

Activision has revealed that they are working to a three studio, three year rotational cycle for the Call Of Duty series.

Sledgehammer have finally been handed the honour of building their own Call Of Duty title which will be released this year.

This slides the studio in between the series creators Infinity Ward and Black Ops studio Treyarch in the rotation and hopefully means that the 2014 entry in the long-running series will be a fresh take on what has grown into a stale formula as Call Of Duty: Ghosts' comparatively poor sales have shown.

Activision told investors earlier today in their quarterly earnings conference call, "For the first time, this years Call of Duty game, and future Call of Duty games, are being built on a three year development cycle. There are several advantages to doing this, the first is of course quality This will give our designers more time to envision and to innovate."
