Sledgehammer Games’ Glen Schofield has provided an intriguing insight into what is sure to be yet another massive Call of Duty game. Squirreling away on the 8th version of the popular franchise for Activision, Schofield has mentioned on Twitter how the studio are currently working with real-life military personnel, the aim of incorporating some of the guys’ actual experiences into their game – with the necessary names and locations changed of course. He said:
“Working w/ military guys – their stories will blow you away. Names/locations will change but some situations going in the game – real stuff!”
It’s an interesting concept, suggesting Call of Duty 8 will definitely not be one of those proposed Modern Warfare spin-offs set in space, under the sea or in the future, etc. Unless of course he’s thinking of some real big name changes.
For audiophiles out there, Schofield has also commented on the game’s music, stating how this title will have a better score than his last game, Dead Space – made when Schofield headed up Visceral. He claims:
“Picking composers for the game. Fun stuff, think we found a great fit. Audio will be better than what we did on Dead Space.”
Finally, and speaking of Visceral, the Sledgehammer head doesn’t seem too optimistic that Dead Space 2 will match the first game’s quality. Answering a tweet inquiring if he’s confident that those still at Visceral are up to the task of delivering a great sequel, Schofield responded:
“Don’t know. Most of the directors, leads and others are at Sledgehammer now. Still good people at Visceral but lots of turnover. We’ll see.”
