Sledgehammer Games will likely be a part of the next Call of Duty game, if a recent job listing by the company is any indication. A report from Now Gamer outs a job listing for a Senior Artist, that also lists the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as “relevant platforms” for the next Call of Duty game.
Shortly following the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, rumors began circulating about where the Call of Duty franchise would be heading. These rumors suggested that the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 was well underway, with voice actors already working on the next game.
The recent launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II proved that gamers are still thirsty for new Call of Duty games. However, Activision has been hesitant to deviate from the year off formula that brings a new Modern Warfare title every other year since 2009. Even with the departure of Infinity Ward heads a few years back, the company has continued to move forward with the “Modern Warfare” formula.
Is it time for Activision to rethink this strategy and start a different timeline for the Call of Duty series? Let us know in the comments section below!
