Glen Schofield, co-founder of Call of Duty: WWII developer Sledgehammer Games, has announced he's waving goodbye to Activision after nearly a decade.

'I've had a great run here at Activision,' said Schofield. 'I feel it's time to try something new [though]. I'll be leaving Activision end of [December] and taking some time off to relax. Then off to something else exciting.'

Schofield has been involved in the development of a number of major titles while under the Activision umbrella, including Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and the aforementioned WWII.

He previously served at Crystal Dynamics as vice president and executive producer, and later moved to EA to manage Visceral Games, where he became executive producer of Dead Space.

So, what's next for Schofield? He told GameSpot that he plans to 'take my time finding my next gig. Make sure it's exactly what I want to do. I still have a couple of good games in me.'
