Call of Duty XP 2011 Interviews with Glen Schofield and Noah Heller

Sledgehammer’s co-founder and CoD Elite’s product manager tell us what we can expect in November

The first-ever Call of Duty XP was, as you may have seen in our earlier video, a two-day orgy of ziplines, paintball and Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer – but it was also a chance for developers Sledgehammer and Beachhead to show off what they’ve been able to accomplish at the reins of the world’s biggest gaming franchise. At the event, we caught up with a representative of each company – specifically Sledgehammer’s co-founder Glen Schofield and Beachhead Product Manager Noah Heller – to get their thoughts on XP, fan reaction to Call of Duty Elite and what it’s like to step into Infinity Ward’s shoes.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
