Call of Duty developer Sledgehammer Games is opening a new studio in Australia.
The Activision-owned company will expand with an office in Melbourne, according to producer Alayna Cole, who is the new studio’s first official hire.
Cole announced the news during a recent talk at the New Zealand Game Developers Conference, and later confirmed the news on her Twitter. According to Australian website Ingames, who further added to the news, stated that Sledgehammer Games already had a minor presence in Melbourne in the form of a small engineering team. However, the expansion will create a full game studio.
The exact plans for Sledgehammer Games Melbourne are not yet clear, or what they will be working on, but it is largely expected to be another Call of Duty title.
