Sledgehammer Games, the studio that has been around since 2009, has lost it’s co-founders today. As part of its’ press release, Activision has stated that Call of Duty: WWII directors Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield will take up executive positions within Activision. Both men expressed excitement about being able to work on new ideas and properties. The replacement studio head has been announced as Aaron Halon who has also been with the studio since its creation.
Shakeups like this may sound familiar to longtime fans of the Call of Duty series. Sledgehammer Games got its start helping complete Modern Warfare 3 back in 2009, after main developer Infinity Ward had both its studio heads fired by Activision. Before moving to the Call of Duty series, the studio went by the name Visceral Games and created the Dead Space games. The DLC plans for Call of Duty: WWII are still going ahead on schedule for its three further packs later this year.
