Sledgehammer hiring for Call of Duty FPS

"This is an opportunity of a lifetime." 

Activision-owned studio Sledgehammer Games is looking for new staff members to work on a "Call of Duty first-person shooter".

That's according to a bundle of job adverts over on Gamasutra. "Sledgehammer Games was founded with the singular purpose of making great action games. We have a brand new state of the art studio facility and an industry leading development team working on a world class franchise - this is an opportunity of a lifetime," the ads read.

"We are actively recruiting top talent for our Call of Duty first-person shooter development team. If you have a desire to work on the most successful FPS franchise in the history of video games, apply online."

The news comes just weeks after Activision registered a series of trademarks for Call of Duty names, including Advanced Warfare, Secret Warfare and Space Warfare.

Sledgehammer was set up late last year by Visceral Games veterans Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey. The execs were previously best known for their work on Dead Space.
