Despite the new three-year rotation Activision has put in place which sees Treyarch, Infinity Ward, and Sledgehammer Games take turns releasing Call of Duty, it seems Sledgehammer Games has only just begun hiring for the next Call of Duty game, which is due in 2017.
The developers of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare have started looking for new staff to work on the 2017 instalment of Call of Duty, and if the job listing is anything to go by, the game will be hyper realistic.
Over 40 positions have been posted on Activision’s job page, indicating that the developer is keen to hire a slew of new blood to ramp up production, I mean, they only really have two years left to do so. Although there’s no specifics of what their instalment of Call of Duty will be, though many already assume it’ll be Advanced Warfare 2, one particular post references the aim of “hyper realism”.
The VFX team at Sledgehammer Games is looking for an experienced and passionate Senior VFX artist to join our AAA team. In this position, the artist will work closely with the Lead VFX Artist, Art Director, Technical Art Director, Lighting and Design team to create the most exceptional real-time effects with a focus on hyper realism for our next Call of Duty game.
This year’s Call of Duty title is being handled by Infinity Ward, the developer behind 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts, and while little is known about what the game will be, Infinity Ward may have hinted at what’s in store in their NYE twitter posts.
