Aaron Halon has taken over as the head of Sledgehammer Games, replacing Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield. He has posted a message to the Call of Duty community, saying that he feels “our best days are yet to come.”
Here’s the full message:
Thank you from everyone here at Sledgehammer Games.
This is an incredible time for the studio. As Glen and Michael begin new chapters in their careers, I’m humbled by the opportunity to lead this amazing team of developers. Over the years, I’ve worn many hats here at the studio, which has allowed me to work side by side with some of the best talent in the business.
As a Call of Duty development studio, we have always been grateful for the chance to make games for the greatest fans in the world. Simply put, there’s nothing else like the Call of Duty community, and I’m committed to staying focused on our fans as we continue to support Call of Duty: WWII well into the future. You are our inspiration and our motivation.
I thank Glen and Michael for their support, and their mentorship along the way. As great as our history has been at Sledgehammer Games, I feel we can go even higher, and that our best days are yet to come. Thank you.
Here’s a reminder of the statement announcing the “transition” of Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey:
Following the incredible success of Call of Duty: WWII, Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have decided to transition from their duties at Sledgehammer Games to new executive duties inside Activision. We thank Glen and Michael for their tremendous body of work on Call of Duty and look forward to continuing to collaborate with them in their new roles. These changes have created an opportunity to elevate one of the key leaders at the studio, Aaron Halon, to lead Sledgehammer Games. Aaron is a founding member of Sledgehammer Games and the natural fit to lead the team. He has over 20 years of industry experience and has played an instrumental role throughout the studio’s history. We congratulate Aaron and are thrilled about the future of Sledgehammer Games, which we believe has even bigger days ahead.
