Call of Duty: WWII Developer Co-Founders Have Left The Company

Call of Duty: WWII Developer Co-Founders

It’s not uncommon to see some major changes come to the gaming industry, especially big players being moved around. Reasons for this usually involve restructuring due to layoffs, studio closures, or said big players just wanting a change of pace. This certainly seems to be the case with the Call of Duty: WWII developer co-founders, as it was just announced that they have both parted ways with the company they started.

Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield were the directors of the latest Call of Duty installment, which has seen a bounty of success since launch, ruling out poor performance as the cause for their departure. Instead, it is due to the two taking on new roles. Sledgehammer Games was started in 2009 and was picked up by Activision shortly after that. In fact, that’s where both Condrey and Schofield will be taking their talents. Here’s what Activision had to say:

Following the incredible success of Call of Duty: WWII, Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey have decided to transition from their duties at Sledgehammer Games to new executive duties inside Activision. We thank Glen and Michael for their tremendous body of work on Call of Duty and look forward to continuing to collaborate with them in their new roles. These changes have created an opportunity to elevate one of the key leaders at the studio, Aaron Halon, to lead Sledgehammer Games. Aaron is a founding member of Sledgehammer Games and the natural fit to lead the team. He has over 20 years of industry experience and has played an instrumental role throughout the studio’s history. We congratulate Aaron and are thrilled about the future of Sledgehammer Games, which we believe has even bigger days ahead.”

Just as the Call of Duty: WWII developer co-founders say goodbye to the studio they founded, a new leader has been found in Aaron Halon, as can be seen in the statement above. As for Condrey and Schofield, we can only imagine what kind of awesomeness they’ll develop working directly for Activision. We wish the three of them all the best in their new roles, and we’re excited to see what the future holds for both Sledgehammer Games and Activision.
