“I’ve had a great run here at Activision; 3 COD’s- MW3, AW and WWll- that I’m proud of,” tweeted the outgoing Activision executive, Glen A. Schofield, on Monday. “I feel it’s time to try something new tho. I’ll be leaving Activision end of Dec. and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting. Thank u Activision for everything!”

Schofield had founded Sledgehammer Games with his fellow ex-Visceral Games developer, Michael Condrey, in 2009. The studio went on to develop three Call of Duty games, with their most recent entry, Call of Duty: WWII, surpassing $1 billion in global sales last year.

However, earlier this year, Schofield and Condrey both left their positions at Sledgehammer for executive jobs at Activision. At the time, Schofield described his new Activision job as an opportunity he “couldn’t pass up.”
