Leroy Sutton Visits Sledgehammer Games

08/02/2013

It was our honor to recently invite Leroy Sutton to Sledgehammer Games. Sutton, a game design student and huge Call of Duty fan, came a long way to be with us – not just in distance traveled, but by sheer determination not to give up. His story was recently featured on ESPN, and we found it truly inspiring how he overcame the odds to pursue his passion. Leroy is set to graduate with a degree in video game design later this month, and we thought it would be a great opportunity for him to meet with the team to discuss breaking into game development. The overall experience was extremely memorable for all the Hammers involved, and the one-on-one time with some of the top devs in the industry in Leroy’s words, “was better than all of E3.”

Happy to know you, Leroy. Keep up the good work!

Sledgehammer Games Celebrates Its Fourth Birthday

07/31/2013

Four years ago, Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey set out to build a world-class Bay Area development studio with a singular goal: Achieve Excellence. If you fast forward to today, they sit with an assembly of 150 premier developers, look out at a studio that’s doubled in size since 2009, have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 under their belts, and both consider this just the start of something bigger. Glen and Michael kicked our anniversary festivities off by honoring the team's past accomplishments and toasting to the future of the studio and our next project. Then the party opened up to food, drinks, and a mixology course that ultimately turned into an Iron Chef style cocktail crafting contest. An epic evening to remember. Thanks to all the devs, family members, friends, and fans that have been a part of this amazing journey!

Sledgehammer Games and E3 2013!

06/05/2013

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, held annually in Los Angeles, begins next week on June 11th and runs through June 13th. E3 is one of the biggest gatherings on the video game calendar and we can’t wait to see more of the great titles in development from our colleagues across the industry. Activision, publisher of Call of Duty: Ghosts, Destiny and the Skylanders franchise, as well as Sledgehammer Game's parent company, will once again be a major presence. Equally, we're thrilled to see more from the new generation of gaming consoles that mark this exciting year for gamers and developers alike.

Glen, Michael and members of the team from Sledgehammer Games will be down all week to research, play, and celebrate. If you catch us on the floor, please say hello. For those unable to attend, we'll be updating our channels with an inside look from a developer’s perspective from the show this year. Look out for updates all week from our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts.

Hammer on!

Hammers Do Their Part for Earth Day 2013

04/18/2013

Our hats are off to the Hammers that attended the California Parks Foundation’s 16th Annual Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup. One of our core studio principals is to give back to the community around us, and last weekend a group volunteered to clean up Dunes Beach, part of Half Moon State Beach, in Half Moon Bay, California. The cleanup consisted of the removal of non-native plants, planting native plants, fixing posts, and the installation of garbage and recycling areas.  One of the teams that volunteered broke off to remove ice plant, a decorative plant that is non-native to the state of California, because it starves native plants and erodes the beach. Another team was tasked with the installation of foundations for trash receptacles on the beach, and the restoration of road posts to indicate parking areas for visitors. If you’d like to find out more about how to help out, check out Earth Day Network’s website for activities in your area.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for all the updates on studio culture at Sledgehammer Games.

The tools of the trade.

The culprit, Carpobrotus edulis. Don't erode me, bro.
