Call Of Duty: WWII Studio Heads Leave Sledgehammer Games, Stay With Activision


Game Informer has the news from the front.

Quote:
The two heads of Sledgehammer Games, the studio behind the incredibly successful Call of Duty: WWII, are stepping away from the studio they founded to work on other games with parent company Activision.

Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield founded Sledgehammer in 2009 after leaving Visceral Games and creating the first Dead Space. The pair joined Activision as one of the three studios participating in the company's Call of Duty three year cycle, helping to co-develop Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward, make Advanced Warfare themselves, and create Call of Duty: WWII last year.

The two are leaving just after WWII became the best selling game of 2017 despite having only released in the last part of the year. Aaron Halon, the senior development director at Sledgehammer, will be promoted to head the studio following their departure.

Condrey and Schofield are not leaving Activision as a whole, merely stepping away from Sledgehammer to work on other projects.

"Activision has offered me the opportunity to focus my energy on something Iím very passionate about," Schofeld wrote, "exploring new game ideas for the company. Itís something I just couldnít pass up."

Condrey echoed a similar sentiment in a statement. "On a personal level, Iím deeply grateful to the men and women who have poured their passion into the pursuit of excellence with us. Iím proud of what we accomplished together, it has been the greatest experience of my professional life. I am looking forward to starting a new chapter of my career with Activision. I couldnít be more excited for the future of Sledgehammer Games and look forward to seeing Aaron lead the studio to new heights."
