Sledgehammer Games CEO Glen Schofield revealed that his company had been working on a third-person Call of Duty game with a tone similar to Dead Space. When Sledgehammer was asked to work on Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward, the untitled project was put on hold.
“It was a third-person action-adventure game, it was a shooter, and it was not based in this era,” said Schofield. “It had a lot of atmosphere like, I should say Dead Space a little bit because you were underground in some places. You know, war is hell, war is scary and that’s what we were trying to get across.”
Glen Schofield isn’t saying whether or not that’s the plan, but either way, it’s probably going to take awhile. “I want to make at least one more first-person shooter,” Schofield said when asked about the fate of the game. “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.”
