Sledgehammer’s Call Of Duty game shelved

Speaking to Eurogamer, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey revealed that the studio’s thirdperson, action adventure Call Of Duty was shelved at the prototype stage because the studio wanted to work on Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward. “We were working on it for about six months,” he said. “We had a prototype together that was pretty compelling, and it looked really good. [But] the opportunity to work on the biggest thing in the industry with Infinity Ward was just an opportunity we couldn’t [miss].” With some of Sledgehammer’s staff having worked on previous games in the series, and others confirmed fans, Condrey described the decision to switch to Modern Warfare 3 as “a nice marriage of experience in the genre and a kind of fan desire to work on this franchise.”
