Sledgehammer Games brought a little glory back to the Call of Duty franchise with its 2017 release of Call of Duty: WWII. For many, the game was not only a return to the war that started it all but the return to boots on the ground combat that many purists craved since the series had moved to a more futuristic setting. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that Sledgehammer Games co-founders Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have left the company they started in favor of an executive position with Activision. Aaron Halon will assume the lead position at Sledgehammer Games. Halon was previously Director of Product Development and has been with the studio since the beginning.
All involved parties have issued official statements praising one another so there seems to be no drama like the nasty Infinity Ward split that happened shortly after Call of Duty: MW2. This is also not expected to interfere with future content and support for Call of Duty: WWII.
