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.
