Prepare to be confused.
Okay, so we've heard Infinity Ward is likely cranking on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 . Despite the mass exodus the studio suffered after the Vince Zampella/Jason West fiasco, Activision apparently restaffed IW in record time. Then there was the rumor that Sledgehammer Games, a designer owned by Activision, was working on another Call of Duty installment. It was initially purported to be an action/adventure game but was later emended to hold the more expected first-person shooter label. Finally, there was the rumor that Raven ( Wolfenstein , Singularity ) was working on something CoD-related. Now, we've got what is supposed to be a clarification from the LA Times .
It seems both Sledgehammer and Raven are assisting Infinity Ward in development of Modern Warfare 3 . However, Sledgehammer is indeed working on their own CoD spin-off, which is supposed to sport a sci-fi theme of some kind. Sledgehammer appears to be working with IW on the single-player mode of MW3 while Raven is handling development of the multiplayer aspect. There. Does that clear everything up?
