As wacky and backwards as it may seem, Activision recently announced a non-first-person-shooter Call of Duty installment.
Developed by the newly formed and wholly owned Sledgehammer Games, the game, still without a name or a release date, will be of the action/adventure genre.
The game’s production will be lead by Dead Space veterans and former Visceral Games leads Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey.
The Sledgehammer Games Call of Duty title, whatever it turns out to be, will, according to Activision, “extend the franchise into the action-adventure genre.”
What’s more, Activision is keeping Call of Duty in high regards as it looks towards the future.
“2010 will be another important year for the Call of Duty franchise,” stated Mike Griffith, president and CEO of Activision Publishing.
“In addition to continued catalog sales, new downloadable content from Infinity Ward and a new Call of Duty release, we are excited about the opportunity to bring the franchise to new geographies, genres and players.”
Does this sound like what happened to Guitar Hero to anyone else?
