Glen Schofield, former CoD dev, leaving Activision
Glen Schofield, formerly of both Visceral Games and Sledgehammer Games, has decided to leave Activision. This move comes after less than a year with parent company Activision after stepping down from responsibilities at Sledgehammer to take on that role.
Schofield made the announcement official on his Twitter account on Monday, December 10. His stepping away seems to indicate some time to regroup before starting some new venture. Anything at this point is speculation, but considering Schofield’s resume, he’ll be working on something really cool. You can view his announcement below.
I’ve had a great run here at Activision; 3 COD’s- MW3, AW and WWll- that I’m proud of. I feel it’s time to try something new tho. I’ll be leaving Activision end of Dec. and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.
Thank u Activision for everything!

Schofield has previously worked at both Visceral Games and Sledgehammer Games. The latter he helped create. While at Visceral Games he helped bring Dead Space to life, and at Sledgehammer, he worked on a handful of Call of Duty titles, like Modern Warfare 3 and Advanced Warfare.
We’ll have to wait and see for his future projects and developments, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he already has something up his sleeve. Time will tell.
