Sledgehammer Games founders Michael Condrey and Glen Schofield have resigned from their positions as founders of the studio, now they have decided to move onto pursue new roles within Activision.
In a statement from Activision, it was explained that both Condrey and Schofield leaving the Call of Duty studio resulted in a new role for Aaron Halon, a founding member of Sledgehammer Games. Halon is now the team leader and with his 20 years of industry experience Activision believe that the future of Sledgehammer Games is in good hands.
Here is the statement from Activision: "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.
Activision continued their statement: "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."
