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.
