CVG: Treyarch has labelled the exodus at fellow Call Of Duty studio Infinity Ward "unfortunate" - but promised the maelstrom surrounding its Activision stablemate hasn't distracted it from creating COD: Black Ops.
I wouldn't ever beable to just stand by and watch something like that unfold. Lets just says if i worked for Activision when that went down, i wouldn't be working there...
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
Which one is your wallet? The one that says Bad Motherfucker on it
lol, god I love that movie. :)
LOL, yeah right. They probably threw a bad ass party after they found out. Hahaha!
It's sad what happen to IW...BTW...have you seen our new game...kicks F'n a$$...thank-you... Trailer does look good tho...here's a breakdown...
they may be asshole's but jobs are hard to come by nowadays
Same here. I'll care about the food that I can bring in my home first.
It sounds more like a bunch of the old timers that worked with West and Zampella for a long time is leaving. Activision has a lot of studios under them and we don't see mass exodus or even the sort of stories like "EA Wife" so I think they are treated no worse than the rest of the industry.
LOL at this comment: "I don't believe a word of it. I bet the Treyarch guys are loving this. Finally they're not the deformed, mentally-disabled, bastard cousins of Infinity Ward any more... they're the top dogs, teacher's pet to Activision and the fat cat that runs that outfit."
Infinity Ward seems to be one of the few studios ever who WONT do what their parent company bought them out to do. If a company buys you, you have to do what they say. Not bash Activision at every turn. Treyarch is doing what they should and I respect them for it. Plus, all of their games have more character than anything IW has ever made. When would IW make a fun mode like Nazi Zombies?
"...all of their games have more character than anything IW has ever made..." Oh really? I guess that's why COD3 and COD5 were bigger hits than MW1 and MW2. Oh wait........ Don't get me wrong. I hate IW for what they did with MW2, but that doesn't automatically mean Treyarch are better developers. Look at their track record. None of their games ever came close to beating IW products. If IW wasn't wrecked by Activision, Treyarch will still be the 'afterthought' developers, those that Activision just kept because they wanted to milk the franchise dry.
I'm sure they are real sorry to see them go.
I'm glad it happened. I <3 you Treyarch.
LOL, no more shoulders for you to stand on!
You know people want to blame activision but it was actually infintity ward that was being grifters. they tried to con activision and poach activision employees for EA. They got caught. Why do you think they signed with EA and got almost all of activision employees into respawn entertainment right after? Treyarch has got to be laughing thier a$$es off. Call of duty is a brand.
I guess Treyarch actually has to do some work now since IW isn't gonna be around to create the engine or anything else for them to copy and paste.
Im sure this new COD game uses that same modified cod4 engine that all tha cods are using.
Treyarch, Don't worry 'bout all that rubbish. Just make sure CoD: Black Ops is all good & optimized.
"we're keeping our heads down and staying focused." This quote says it all. It says we are scared to death and we are going to do WHATEVER daddy wants to stay on his good side. Now I'm not into the whole who's better than who studio. I just picked up WaW and am enjoying it a lot more than MW2, especially that zombie mode. Didn't get into the CoD thing until MW2, yeah I was a sheep and got caught up in the hype train, guess it happens to the best of us.
