So, the question at hand: did Treyarch destroy Call of Duty? After Infinity Ward brought the series to a high with Call of Duty 2, Treyarch developed the wholly lackluster Call of Duty 3 to bring it back down. Achieving the impossible, Infinity Ward did it again by creating Call of Duty 4 and raising the series to a level no one expected, before it was announced that Activision was giving it back to Treyarch. The gamer outrage was massive, but most held a little bit of optimism that Activision knew something gamers did not. Putting it back during World War II wasn't a great start.
