With the team behind Call of Duty: WWII
set to open a new studio in Australia. Pretty massive news for the local industry to be sure. The announcement came when local developer Alayna Cole posted on Twitter
that she was the first official hire for Sledgehammer Games
Melbourne, and will begin in her new role as producer on Monday.
As to what role the studio will play in the continued development of the Call of Duty franchise, or perhaps new projects both related and unrelated, we'll have to wait and see. Perhaps when the official press release from Activision Blizzard
comes we'll find out a bit more.
In the meantime there are five open vacancies in the Melbourne studio currently listed on the Sledgehammer Games jobs page
