The co-founder of the Call of Duty: WW2 developer is set to step down from Activision in a few weeks.
Sledgehammer Games and Activision has been a pretty successful marriage. The company, founded of ex-EA Visceral alum, first worked with Infinity Ward on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, then proceeded to make the well received Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in 2014, before finally getting their biggest hit to date with last year’s Call of Duty: WW2.
But it seems like Sledgehammer co-founder Glen Schofield will be stepping down from his position at the end of the year nonetheless. Schofield announced his decision to do so on Twitter, noting that he has nothing but appreciation for Activision and the three Call of Duty games that he got to work on, but that he is eager for what lies ahead. As to that, he only teased that it would be “something exciting”, and left the rest to imagination. That said, he also noted that he would take a break first.
Schofield made games that sold millions and did well, so I hope he is satisfied with his tenure at Activision. We wish him luck at whatever he sets out to do next, and can’t wait to see where he will turn up.
I’ve had a great run here at Activision; 3 COD’s- MW3, AW and WWll- that I’m proud of. I feel it’s time to try something new tho. I’ll be leaving Activision end of Dec. and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.
Thank u Activision for everything!
