Sledgehammer's Call Of Duty Project Back On The Radar
Canceled, not canceled, in flux, in development, postponed, shelved...all such terms have been associated with Sledgehammer's latest project.
The developer worked with Infinity Ward on last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but have long been rumored to be working on a standalone CoD entry themselves. Well, beyond "rumored," actually; it was officially confirmed at one point. And it was supposed to be third-person, too.
Then it sort of fell of the radar...until today. It has popped back into news circulation, as Videogamer spotted a job listing on the company's website. The job is no longer available but it was for a Senior FX Artist to help "create the most exceptional real-time effects with hyper realism for [its] next Call of Duty game." It may not be a next-gen project, either, as the job listing asked for someone with experience of "current generation hardware."
We're just not sure if this is still the "third-person action game" described last year, or just a return to the standard first-person formula. But hey, another Call of Duty...aren't you ecstatic?
