Sledgehammer: We’re Doing MW3 in Complete Collaboration with Infinity WardBy Alex Co | August 9, 2011 | News | 3 comments | Share
If you’ve been living under a rock the past few months, you might not have heard that Modern Warfare 3 is being worked on by two separate teams, the guys (or what’s left of them) over at Infinity Ward who worked on the previous two Modern Warfares, and Sledgehammer Games, a new studio built to make Call of Duty games.
Upon hearing this news, some fans automatically jumped the gun and assumed that IW was working on multiplayer, while the other team worked on the game’s campaign.
In a recent video interview with Glen Schofield, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, it turns out, the teams are working together on everything. By everything I mean from the game’s story, to art assets, to the game’s multiplayer. He said it’s not “split” as some people believed to be the case.
Will it work and revitalize the franchise or will it be an experiment that will backfire for the mega-franchise? We’ll know for sure once the game ships on November 8.
