Cheats and Walkthroughs
If recent job listings are anything to go on, developer Sledgehammer Games’ currently in development Call of Duty game will in fact be a first-person shooter.
The listings, posted over at Gamasutra, cover a wide range of jobs, from gameplay engineer to sound designer, but the real eye-catcher is the mention that the listings are for positions with Sledgehammer’s “Call of Duty First Person Shooter development team.”
Based on previous statements from Activision, the Sledgehammer COD is supposed to be a bit of a departure for the acclaimed military shooter. The phrase “action-adventure” was even used to describe the game. This isn’t to say that an FPS can’t also be an action-adventure game, but the adventure genre isn't typically associated with a first-person perspective. Plus, Call of Duty: Black Ops has the whole traditional COD FPS base covered.
Then again, if Activision and Sledgehammer are able to pull off whatever mad concoction they have brewing up that melds action-adventure with an FPS, it would be a new direction indeed.
