After working on Modern Warfare 3, Sledgehammer Games ponders its future.
Though we reported earlier that CoD developer, Sledgehammer Games showed interest in developing a Call of Duty of their own, it now seems like developing a completely new IP (intellectual property) might be on their agenda. In an interview with industrygamers, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, Glen Schofield, gave a small glimpse into their future.
When asked how they felt about creating a new IP, Schofield answered “We’d like to do both [create another CoD] or either. Truthfully, how could you go wrong with making either another CoD game or a new IP.” He continued, “both will push you as a developer and both are fun to create and develop. Activision is definitely open to new ideas. Just take a look at the Action/Adventure game we were initially working on that – Sledgehammer Games canceled it for the opportunity to work on MW3.” Schofield couldn’t give any specific plans as to what the team will be working on next; though, he did mention now that MW3 has launched, “we will all need some time to recharge the batteries and come back refreshed and ready to give 110%… I know Activision wants us to work on what we’re passionate about, that’s why they asked us to work on MW3, not forced us.”

In other news, Modern Warfare 3 has recently seen an update. So far, this hotfix has corrected a known glitch on the map Outpost which allowed players to roam underneath the map getting free kills. Humorously, IW/SHG even went as far as getting the player killed if they tried to do so any further.
