Activision's Sledgehammer Games is looking for new developers to join the studio to work on a first-person shooter in the Call of Duty franchise.

A slew of job ads have gone up looking to swell their ranks in Foster City, California. Recently a number of trademarks went for Call of Duty.

"Sledgehammer Games was founded with the singular purpose of making great action games. We have a brand new state of the art studio facility and an industry leading development team working on a world class franchise - this is an opportunity of a lifetime," blurbs the job ads on Gamasutra, reports Eurogamer.

"We are actively recruiting top talent for our Call of Duty first-person shooter development team. If you have a desire to work on the most successful FPS franchise in the history of video games, apply online."

Sledgehammer is helmed by former EA big wigs Glen Schofield and Michael Condrey of Dead Space's Visceral Games studio. Advanced Warfare, Secret Warfare and Space Warfare were all recently trademarked by Activision for the Call of Duty series.

Could this be the Viet-nam entry so many have waited for for so long? Every game based around that war has so far been mediocre at best...about time it was done well. There is also the "CoD" MMO on the way as well.
There are also rumours that Raven Software (Soldier of Fortune, etc) are going to be working on the franchise as well.
Four Devs...Acti are serious.
