Sledgehammer Games has announced that the development company and Activision will be putting out a Call of Duty game in 2011. The shocking news behind it is they are stating that they will make CoD‘s FPS become NLA (and to that we say WTF).
Visceral Games former bosses Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey (of Dead Space fame) will be behind the reigns in this new project.
“In addition to continued catalog sales, new down-loadable content from Infinity Ward and a new Call of Duty release, we are excited about the opportunity to bring the franchise to new geographies, genres and players.” says Mike Griffith, President and CEO of Activision. “2010 will be another important year for the Call of Duty franchise,”
With the announcement of a CoD game that heads away from the franchises golden goose, and the firing of leads such as Jason West and Vince Zampella, it forces all of us prestige junkies to ponder over what will become of Infinity Ward. As of this exact moment in time, it seems that IW will continue to work on MW2 DLC and promotion. What ever becomes of IW I hope the best and MacTavish-ly salute you all.
