Almost ten years ago, Glen Schofield surprises many fans of the industry announcing that he was leaving Visceral and founding a new studio at Activision called Sledgehammer Games. Today, Schofield announced on Twitter that this journey is over.
Schofield founded Sledgehammer in the 2009 under the aegis of Activision to work mainly on Call of Duty, as part of the Activision plan to begin publishing the series titles annually, alternating three different studies. As Schofield also says in his tweet, Sledgehammer has overseen Modern Warfare 3, Advanced Warfare and World War II. The last of these games was so successful that Schofield and co-founder partner Michael Condrey, earlier this year, were brought into Activision's corporate team to oversee all of the company's games.
While he was in Visceral, Schofield was also the creator and executive producer of Dead Space. His works include Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain and Akuji the Heartless. We still do not know what will move soon.
I've had a great run here at Activision; 3 COD's- MW3, AW and WWll- that I'm proud of. I feel it's time to try something new. I'll be leaving Activision end of Dec. and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.
Thank u Activision for everything!
