According to an LA Times blog post, Modern Warfare 3 is being worked on by three developers including Infinity Ward, Raven Software and the newly created Sledgehammer Games. This isn’t too surprising since Infinity Ward was decimated last year.
Of course, I’m curious how all of this will turn out, but I’m more interested in the responsibility breakdown. Who’s handling what?
Raven Software has experience in multiplayer, so they’re responsible for the most popular half of the title. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games are working on the single player campaign.
Sledgehammer Games was working on a Call of Duty game of their own, but after the Infinity Ward debacle, Activision redirected their efforts towards the annual moneymaker. Sledgehammer Games was formed by the two former Visceral Games (Dead Space) leaders, so I guess you could assume they have knack for single player campaigns.
I don’t know about you, but I’m very curious how this triple-team effort will turn out.
