RUMOR: Sledgehammer Games Working On Call of Duty


Since the mid-2000s, the developing duties for the Call of Duty franchise has alternated between Infinity Ward and Treyarch year in and year out, but in 2014 that may change.

Rumor has it that Sledgehammer Games is developing the next Call of Duty title, and it was somewhat confirmed with this job posting on LinkedIn looking for a Weapons and Vehicle Artist . It may not have been the companies intention to confirm work on the game, but by posting this job offer, Sledgehammer has indirectly announced it’s project. The company previously helped develop Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in 20011 with Infinity Ward.

It’s unclear if Sledgehammer Games is the sole developer behind the next Call of Duty game, or if it will be a collaboration effort with another developer. But, if one were to assume, the looking for a temporary artist could signal that they are the only ones developing the game.
