The former creative director of Sledgehammer Games spoke to MinnMax’s Ben Hanson about his time in the studio and the projects that never got released. It turned out that the team wanted to make a sequel to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and a third-person game in the spirit of Uncharted.
As Bret Robbins revealed in an interview, Sledgehammer Games wanted to make a sequel to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The game was in the prototyping stage – a demo level could be put together from the developments. However, the studio still abandoned their idea and set about making Call of Duty: WWII.
Robbins recalled an interesting episode from when he first started working at Sledgehammer Games. Then, in 2009, the studio evolved as part of the Call of Duty series Third-person action in the spirit of Uncharted that was promised “brutal military experience” in the context of Vietnam. The project was in the early stages of prototyping, but this experiment was eventually canceled and the team proceeded with development of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Bret Robbins left Sledgehammer Games in 2018. After leaving, he founded Ascendant Studios, which will release the action role-playing game Immortals of Aveum this year.
