Is Sledgehammer Games is making COD8 ?

January 5, 2011 in COD8, NEWS, Sledgehammer

So what is Sledgehammer Games up to? What Call of Duty FPS game are they making? I believe that I’ve got most of the other Studios figured out, but SHG is being real sneaky here, LOL. Read on below, and maybe we can “out” them together ;-)

From ACTIVISION PRESS RELEASE on March 2, 2010
“The company is also for the first time announcing that a new game in the Call of Duty series is expected to be released in 2011 and that Sledgehammer Games, a newly formed, wholly owned studio, is in development on a Call of Duty game that will extend the franchise into the action-adventure genre. Sledgehammer is helmed by industry veterans Glen A. Schofield and Michael Condrey. Prior to joining Activision Publishing, Schofield was the Executive Producer of the award-winning game, Dead Space and Michael Condrey was the Sr. Development Director on the game. The Dead Space franchise has won more than 80 industry awards worldwide including the prestigious A.I.A.S. Action Game of the Year and two B.A.F.T.A.S.”

Working w/ military guys- their stories will blow you away. Names/locations will change but some situations going in the game- real stuff!

I like some of the suggestions/thoughts/ideas/issues fans r sending me 4 making CoD games better. Thanx-always looking 4 feedback #shgames

@thebigb82 thank u! We r working extremely hard & passionately for the CoD fans. We know u expect the best & that’s what we plan 2 deliver.

Still in military country- humvees on the road, V-22′s and jet fighters going 2 fast to make out what they r. Everyone in fatigues. Cool.

North Carolina is freakin hot! But military bases and museums all around. Great reference and info. #shgames

Lots of job openings at Sledgehammer. Work on something you’ll never forget nor will be forgotten. This is big. Www.sledgehammergames.com

Just bought a boatload of movies for research on the game. Heading to Gamestop to pick up a couple games.

Sledgehammer games is working on a FPS CoD game!

BASED on the tweets alone, one can conclude that SHGames is NOT doing “Future Warfare” (Read the first tweet closely) I’d also like to find his local “Movie Rental” spot :D Bribe the check out clerk, Great intel there ;-)

What we know:
Infinity Ward is “supposed” to be the “Modern Era” (more in upcoming post)
Treyarch is WWII to Cold War (more in upcoming post)
Bungie, Makers of Halo IMHO will be the “Future Warfare” Studio (more in upcoming post)

So what are you up to Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey (besides bantering back & forth like a married couple, LOL)???

Here is the best that CODBUNKER can speculate: Firstly……how “Modern” is “Modern Warfare”? Secondly I would think Treyarch stops at Cuban Missile crisis or slightly after. This IMHO leaves maybe the late 70′s until maybe early 90′s, it’s real hard to say; however, I can’t get past Glen’s tweet “Working w/ military guys- their stories will blow you away. Names/locations will change but some situations going in the game- real stuff!” & “Just bought a boatload of movies for research on the game.” Did he watch movies like: The Killing Fields, Black Hawk Down, The Falcon and the Snowman, Courage Under Fire, Welcome to Sarajevo??? At any rate, WE WILL FIND OUT THIS YEAR (2011) IMHO, because SHG has been working HARD (per news/tweets/etc) and not much has been said about Infinity Ward until recently; therefore, it leads one to believe that COD8 will in fact be created by SHG and released in 2011 (November-ish)……….So what say YOU???
