This has to be for the 2015 COD.... If they are just now canvassing for a job, then they won't fill it for months. I feel that this is ramping up for a 2015 or future titles. There is NO way that after the shear success of BO2, that they would let another team do the next one. We'll be getting zombies in 2014. I'll bet my @$$ on it. :-)
Hey if it is true that we have to wait until 2015, then good for me. At least I can get myself back on track for a year at least. 2013 was a writeoff with just zombies all the time after work.
OMG sledgehammer is going to single-handedly kill the cod franchise.
If you go to their webpage, they have a "the battle begins 11/08/11." And has a pic of MW3 on it. The pics they have of their studio and employees show a small, new working area. NOTHING like treyarch has. There is no way that Activisions bean counters would allow such a small company to take their billion dollar baby away from the success that treyarch is known to provide. Sledgehammer may be ASSISTING, but that's it.
hopefully they are assisting in testing and glitch fixing
Before the IW debacle during MW2, Sledgehammer was in the process of starting up their own CoD title. After IW imploded Activision had SH step in to help develop MW3 and their own title fell by the wayside. So Activision is ready and raring to let a third developer take the spotlight for a year.
Also SH has roughly the same amount of employees as IW. Both just over 120.
Don't get me wrong though, prior to helping with MW3 they were developing a 3rd person action adventure CoD, so it's still very possible that they could run the franchise into the ground. I'm just hopeful that the time spent on MW3 was long enough for them to somehow forget the awful, awful idea of a 3rd person CoD.
Anyone who says wait another year for zombies... just no. What they should do to get good quality and more maps is make a zombies only game with dlc every few months, It is a shame that the good iw left because i wish they could make multiplayer and treyarch could make zombies
and sledgehammer and the new iw would go make terrible games away from cod. Mw3 and ghosts are my 2 least favorites, they are terrible. We need mw2 multiplayer with patches and zombies with more dlc maps. That would be great
Not everyone who plays COD loved Zombies if they made a zombies only game they would lose sales.
I'm tellin ya man. I still think 3arch is coming out with its own ZOMBIE game. Maybe like I said before, S.Hammer is going to produce the next multiplayer and campaign mode, while 3 sticks to the zombie. Personally I think that 3arch, by far beats anything Infinity Ward or Hammer can produce. I played Ghosts..did'nt feel Extinction.. MP was alright. too MW3 for me.
BLACK OPS, is by far the best Franch. Call of Duty has right now. If we must wait a whole freakin year for another zombie game. I'm with you.. it will be killer. I just want a small taste just a quick peek at what they MAY have up their sleeves. All I ask is one thing.. Please make ALL Easter Eggs both Solo and Multiplayers PLEASE !!! oh and every perk on every map.. Thats all.
I Brought the xbox one to play next gen zombies and even waiting until November 2014 was a struggle. Call of duty ghost was rubbish for example extinction. Was pants and I wouldn't even go into my thoughts on MW3 on this forum. Now I am hearing I will have to wait until November 2015 for treyarch made zombies game well I dislike multiplayer and single player campaign is a waste of time. if this is true I will never buy another call of duty title. Not treyach nor sledgehammer or infinity ward versions. I will boycott the whole franchise for good. Completely disgusted with activision now I'm selling my xbox one copy of the rubbish cod ghost tomorrow so well done activision you just lost out on season pass purchases and future games!
