Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 5/15/14


Sledgehammer co-studio head Glen Schofield would welcome the chance to complete the company’s original project, a cancelled third-person Call of Duty game, were parent company Activision keen to do so.

“I was really getting into the story,” Schofield told Game Informer. “We had some really cool mechanics… If they ever asked us to a make a third-person Call of Duty game I’d go back to what we were doing.”

Schofield and fellow Sledgehammer boss Michael Condrey previously oversaw the Dead Space series at EA’s Visceral Games before joining Activision in 2009 to form a new studio in California. They worked on the third-person CoD game for “at least six to eight months”, according to Schofield, before taking up the opportunity to help Infinity Ward complete Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 after many of the studio’s core staff left Activision to join Respawn.

Atlanta-based Moneyhorse Games created a side-scrolling video game that will be available soon for PCs and mobile devices.

Sony has released a new Gran Turismo 6 update featuring the introduction of a new car.

The BMW Vision Gran Turismo is a “modern road racer created by the BMW design team, resurrecting the excitement and passion of 1970s touring cars in present day form”, European brand manager Penrose Tackie wrote on the PS Blog.

“After the update has been installed, the car can be purchased from the Vision GT option within the CARS section in My Home. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the car by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.”
