Sledgehammer developing new Call of Duty game

It never takes long for the industry to start whispering about the next Call of Duty – even though the latest blockbuster is still dominating the charts.

Sure enough, reports have emerged that Sledgehammer Games is recruiting for its "Call of Duty development team". According to a job listing on Gamasutra, the new recruits will be working on "an unannounced high-end console title".

The vacancy is multiplayer-related, with Sledgehammer seeking an engineer to take CoD’s "online experience to a new level" and create "multiplayer game modes and online community features".

Beyond that, there are no concrete details. The job listing doesn’t indicate whether or not this is a revival of the studio’s cancelled third-person shooter, nor whether the studio is working on its own title or supporting another developer.

Sledgehammer Games helped series creators Infinity Ward develop last month’s best-selling hit Modern Warfare 3.
