In an interview with gamerzines.com, Sledgehammer Games boss Glen Schofield revealed that his company had been working on a third-person Call of Duty game with a tone similar to Dead Space. In other words: War is horror. When Sledge was tapped to work on Modern Warfare 3 with Infinity Ward, the untitled project was put on ice, breaking the hearts of action-horror fans like myself all over the earth.
"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."
I can only hope that development of the game will be put back on track once Modern Warfare 3 is complete, but for now, 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."
