Sledgehammer Games' New Studio Head Writes Letter To Fans

So in case you missed the news a few days ago, there was quite a recent shake-up at Sledgehammer Games, the development team behind Call of Duty: WWII.

Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield, who served as directors of the game as well as studio heads for the team, have recently announced that they are departing the company in favor of taking up executive positions at Activision. Aaron Halon, a veteran that’s worked for the company for years, recently stepped up as new studio head in their place.

Some fans may be confused over the departure, which is why Halon decided to address the matter personally with a letter posted on the Sledgehammer Games page. You’ll find it in full below:

“Thank you from everyone here at Sledgehammer Games.

This is an incredible time for the studio. As Glen and Michael begin new chapters in their careers, I’m humbled by the opportunity to lead this amazing team of developers. Over the years, I’ve worn many hats here at the studio, which has allowed me to work side by side with some of the best talent in the business.

As a Call of Duty development studio, we have always been grateful for the chance to make games for the greatest fans in the world. Simply put, there’s nothing else like the Call of Duty community, and I’m committed to staying focused on our fans as we continue to support Call of Duty: WWII well into the future. You are our inspiration and our motivation.

I thank Glen and Michael for their support, and their mentorship along the way. As great as our history has been at Sledgehammer Games, I feel we can go even higher, and that our best days are yet to come. Thank you.

Yours truly,

Aaron Halon”

Currently, Sledgehammer Games is hard at work on downloadable content for Call of Duty: WWII, and then, more than likely, it’ll begin work on its new CoD game, which will likely come in 2020.

Illustrated Yeah there's nothing like the COD community alright... Nothing nearly as bad.

The cod community was great at one point. It has gone to shit the past couple of years for sure


The most broken COD on history the most downloaded on PS4 yes because we think it was a good game but its the most broken game create by another company that in fact they dont know how to make a good COD so yea hope they leave the franchise


Im done buying sledgehammer Games they are cancer


Yeah there's nothing like the COD community alright... Nothing nearly as bad.


From the recent patch notes Aaron is making changes to the game people wanted but Micheal wasn't going to change (Sprint out times I think was one), it's nice to see people listening more to the community and make the game hopefully decent.


Good to luck Aaron! would be cool to see what he brings to the game


Well lets see what this guy comes up with.


Hoping to see some good out of Aaron, best of luck to him and hope to see some great content.


WWII is extremely broken, from a random non-functioning aim assist to getting outgunned in situations where the enemy should've simply died, this game could've been one the great ones.

One game you're a god, the next you're barely struggling to make an impact on the leaderboard.


Too bad both of your games so far were ass.

Maybe you can do much better without them
