Sledgehammer Games is new, founded by ex-Viscerals, and is tipped to be taking on the project. They're looking for an online designer.
Currently the new team wants a multiplayer designer with "five years experience working on current AAA multiplayer shooters for current consoles and PC." That certainly fits the Call of Duty profile. The only other Canadian assets of Activision are Radical Entertainment.
They of course gave us the action gore-fest 'Prototype' most recently, which we so hope is getting the sequel treatment as we speak. Would Infinity Ward skip out on Modern Warfare so soon? It's proven a super hit with shooter fans...
Do you hope's US source is totally bogus?
Rumour-mill: Modern Warfare 3 not Infinity, is likely Sledgehammer?
