A surprising studio logo appears in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare loading screen: Sledgehammer Games.
The studio has been credited for providing assistance on the development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
When loading up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you are greeted with Infinity Ward’s logo followed by Activision’s logo, and ending with a screen with four different support studio logos: Beenox, High Moon, Raven, and Sledgehammer Games.
While the Call of Duty studios have always communicated and worked together on some things, we’ve never seen another ‘main’ studio be credited in the loading screen of another studio’s game.
Sledgehammer Games is also mentioned in the credits of the Modern Warfare campaign.
It’s not clear what Sledgehammer Games worked on for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Sledgehammer Games’ last year has been a mystery as to what the studio is working on. In May of this year, Kotaku reported that Sledgehammer Games’ and Raven’s 2020 Call of Duty title was in a ‘mess’ state and Treyarch has stepped in as lead of the 2020 project with SHG and Raven supporting them.
Sledgehammer Games has continued to rebuild their studio with new employees across the board, including a COO and more for the studio. They’ve even open and expanded an Australia studio office recently.
