Sledgehammer aiming for "bug free" Call of Duty

Fresh-faced Sledgehammer Games has set its sights on delivering a 95+ rated, “bug free” Call of Duty title.

That’s according to a job advertisement posted by the studio, which confirms the firm is currently hiring for a quality assurance tester.

"The candidate will help Sledgehammer Games deliver a 95+ rated Call of Duty game ‘bug free’ meeting the high expectations of gamers today,” the ad reads.

Needless to say, this should come as a relief to many PlayStation 3 owners after the previous CoD outing, Black Ops, was plagued by numerous issues pertaining to the shooter’s online component. Activision issued a series of patches to remedy the issue, though not before gamers accused the publishing behemoth for using them “like game testers.” Ouch.

As for this year’s entry in the venerable series, Sledgehammer’s supposedly working alongside Infinity Ward and Raven Software on the project, which is apparently none other than Modern Warfare 3.
