Sledgehammer Games’ CEO Glen Schofield has told GamerZines that he would “do high fives” if Activision gave his team the chance to develop Modern Warfare 4, despite having “no idea” what the future holds.
“I have no idea,” replied Schofield when asked whether Sledgehammer would become a studio dedicated to Call of Duty like Infinity Ward and Treyarch. “Not because we’re bad planners – we’re actually really good at it – but I don’t see any reason why we’d not want to stay on Call of Duty for a while.
“I wouldn’t mind taking a formula here and there and tweaking it, but if they came to me and said ‘you’re doing Modern Warfare 4′, I’d do high fives.”
But even if Modern Warfare 4 wasn’t to be, Schofield admits that he’d still be happy working on any other Call of Duty title.
“If they said ‘you’re doing Call of Duty something else’,” he continued, “I’d be pretty excited about it.”
Prior to being drafted in to work on Modern Warfare 3 with Call of Duty veterans Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games was hard at work on a third-person Call of Duty spin-off. Schofield appears to have caught the first-person bug, though.
“I want to make at least one more first-person shooter,” he says. “I want to get really good at it.
“I would definitely, 100% work with Infinity Ward again because they’re just the best. But I wouldn’t mind giving Sledgehammer a shot on something.”
It’s been reported that Sledgehammer’s third-person game, which we revealed yesterday was set in a different era to Modern Warfare, is on indefinite hold.
Could the team be put back on Modern Warfare duty with Infinity Ward for a 2013 instalment?
Modern Warfare 3 launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii on November 8th.
