Call of Duty: Ghosts is an Infinity Ward game. After Modern Warfare 3 saw multiple developers in the Activision stable team-up to release that title, it was assumed that the publisher might be heading down that route once again. This doesn’t appear to be the case.
Following yesterday’s reveal of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Sledgehammer cleared itself of involvement in the shooter, wishing Infinity Ward well on the project.
“Congrats to @InfinityWard on #CODGhosts! Our team is heads down on our next project, but best wishes to the hardworking team at IW!”
Infinity Ward set the gold standard for first-person action for a generation, and they’ll do it again
So what is Sledgehammer’s next project? That is a mystery for the time being, but in the past, the developers have hinted at both returning to do another Call of Duty title and/or developing a brand new IP.
As for Call of Duty: Ghosts, little is known about the upcoming shooter. Activision claims the game to be “setting a new benchmark for the next generation with an all-new world, story, characters, and experience.” That’s what they say at least, what they showed was a bunch of people in masks, and a tease that there’s more to come on May 21st.
Activision is confident in Infinity Ward. The development studio is a household name among COD gamers, because of their involvement in the Modern Warfare 1,2,& 3 games. “Infinity Ward set the gold standard for first-person action for a generation, and they’re going to do it again with Call of Duty: Ghosts,” says Eric Hirshberg of Activision.
