Call Of Duty: Sledgehammer Seeks The New Robert Bowling
MW3 developer Sledgehammer Games is on the look out for its own version of former Infinity Ward Community Strategist Robert Bowling.
“We’re on the hunt for an outgoing and creative Community Strategist who is passionate about games, online communities and stays on top of the latest industry news and technology,” reads the ad.
“This role will work closely with the studio heads to ensure we have a world class community management program including community social network presence, community content, and community website tailored to the fans of video games, and the tens of millions of Call of Duty fans around the world.”
It’s the latest shred of evidence to suggest Sledgehammer Games’ influence on Call of Duty could be increasing, with Michael Condrey and Glen Shcofield’s studio bankrolled by Activision specifically to develop for the FPS franchise.
Previous Sledgehammer Community Manager Guy Bheam has now moved over to level design at the studio, according to his Twitter account.
Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer are both hiring for various roles, but Call of Duty’s 2012 outing is expected to come from Black Ops developer Treyarch.
Rob Bowling hasn’t revealed the reason for his sudden departure from Infinity Ward, or his future plans.
