Introducing SledgeHammer Games

June 21, 2010 in NEWS

SledgeHammer Games is a new studio (born in 2009) that has entered the realm of Activision’s Call of Duty Franchise. Initial announcements of exactly what SH would be developing was an Action-Adventure COD. Well we now know by their new website that it clearly states “We are currently in development of a Call of Duty FPS”. Activision also stated, when welcoming SH, that SledgeHammer will bring expand their COD audience. Does this mean COD8 could be COD “Future Warfare”??? Who knows what they have up their sleeve, but by my research, SH seems to be a VERY Energized company (why wouldn’t they be, they are joining the likes of Infinity Ward and Treyarch!) Of course all the hype is turning towards Treyarch’s COD7: Black Ops right now, (Peeps are getting weary of COD6 MW2, “me just the RPG’s and Noobing”); however, SledgeHammer is out there and we just wanted to point them out (They are currently hiring NOW BTW). So lets finish Prestiging on MW2 and complete those fall cammo’s and look forward to BLACK OPS, but keep a distant eye on Sledge!
