It's no doubt the latest title in the Call of Duty franchise will be successful. But with that extreme success comes a lot of money. So should Treyarch be worried about their legal contracts with Activision on how that money will get dispersed?
What a stupid article, Infinity Ward ended up in the position they are through the firing of two founding members du to their breaking of the terms of their contract with Activision, and whilst I'm on their side, they did bring it on theirselves.
It's all a matter of money
It's always about the $
I'm honestly not sure how Activision has fooled you into believing that looking for a new job or opening up contacts is against their contract. It's what you do when you don't like the job your in. You've never in your life looked for a new job? I have a hard time believing anyone hasn't, you also think this would be in a contract: You may never look for a new job, nor give anyone else hope of finding a new job or talk to anyone about your social life or expecting to get a new job. That's legit to you? What Activision has said is they have done something against the morals of the company, but think about it for a second a WHOLE second, does it sound that way to you? Activision has basically said what they have done is create a subversive element in the workplace aka: Talking about getting the hell out of there. If your being whipped by a slave master, and say shit I hate being whipped, you consider this subversive? I'm often not shocked by the mental processes people seem to use in thinking. It's also amazing how many people have read their contract and know enough legal terms to make it out. Amazing. I also know that Activision promised millions after selling X amount of copies. Who then later decided to only give it out if they finish COD:MW 1043. If anyone is breaking a contract it is Activision by withholding promised bonuses and attempting to put a condition of forced labor in order to receive it.
I suppose not but my question was simple, do you think Treyarch is gonna get fucked over too.
U betcha sell millions expect a bonus and get forcibly removed from your office by a private security company LMFAO.
Treyarch aren't as sought after as IW
I doubt it.
Yreyarch are kind of Activisions little b*tch. Whatever Acti wants Acti will get.
To be fair, COD WaW sold like 10 million copies, which is a lot and already made a lot of money. Trearch is actually listening to what the gamers want and so this should be a solid effort from them. I think this is their real chance to get out of the Infinity Ward shadow and make their own name. No danger of anything happening to these guys.
I agree, Treyarch is so much better than IW on so many levels. The only problem is Treyarch has stuck to WW2 games and gamers are sick of them, so MW overshadows Treyarch's superior work. Treyarch makes real war games with blood and gore, where IW makes war games were money flies out of your head.
I read the article and I am reminded of a saying that I am sure everyone has heard before. And that saying is history has away of repeating itself
"Should Treyarch Fear An End Similar To Infinity Ward?" With a parent company like Activision, they'd be fools if they're not worried.
Perhaps,with said 'end' in sight....creativity will reign again as unemployed sheep scramble to comprehend the situation. Perhaps,the creative minds at treyarch will finally realise that they are 'free'. Perchance,a 'free' Treyarch will produce a creative product....perhaps I would buy. Sometimes,everyone under the 'same roof' that leaks should move....and hope for new roofs without leaks.......
As long as Treyarch knows their place, then no. IW wanted to do other IPs that's not Call of Duty, and that didn't sit well with Activision (amongst other things). I don't think Treyarch has that problem.
unlike IW I dont see Treyarch having the gall to bite the hand that feeds them
R.I.P Treyarch Cause of death: COD Overdose
Should Treyarch Fear An End Similar To Infinity Ward? i dont know i only rented mw2 beat the single player and play demons souls until bfbc2.i would say FEAR MF FEAR
Why would they have anything to fear, Activision is just looking for the ultimate bitch who will bend over and do everything asked. Treyarch is that bitch, and they will bend over at the slightest sign of an erection if anything they might get something extra. If Activision walks into the room and says "Put a tutu on that marine, it makes sense", Treyarch will be like "What color master", and Activision will be rubbing it's monster slong on Treyarchs face, "That's right my pet, take it".
Exactly, Activision doesn't give two shits about companies they buy. They're disposable, and if they wanted they could put together a new team in no time.
