A few months ago we learned that Sledgehammer Games would be the ones to develop this year’s Call of Duty title for the PS4, PC and Xbox One platforms. It was also revealed that the game would not skip the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 consoles but just who was handling them, was a mystery.
Now Sledgehammer Games’ co-founders Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey confirmed in an interview with Gameinformer, that the talented High Moon Studios are the ones overseeing the curren-gen versions’ development.
“Current gen is also going to be great – the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms are being developed by the talented team at High Moon Studios,” they explained. “They are committed to bringing an incredible X360 and PS3 Call of Duty game to fans. We’ve been working closely with those guys to ensure players get an awesome Call of Duty experience on all platforms.”
The team at High Moon are no strangers to working on shooters, their past titles include the well received Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. It will be interesting to see how they handle a shooter of different style and pace.

They won’t be alone though, as they will be getting help from another studio familiar with Call of Duty development.
“The Sledgehammer Games team was able to leverage talent across the company after last year’s game shipped, including the team at Raven Software to help deliver against our three year vision for Advanced Warfare”
One wonders if we will see a repeat with what EA and MS did with the 360 version of Titanfall, where they kept gameplay footage under wraps right up until its release and only focused Next-gen footage. My money is on publisher Activision pulling the same thing.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches on PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
