A hot rumor has been flying today that Raven Software has been pulled off the unannounced stealth James Bond game that Activision had commissioned them to work on and have tasked them with creating Call of Duty: Black Ops downloadable content.
Why would Treyarch let someone else take over their baby?
To free up Trey for Black Ops 2. 2011 - MW3 2012 - BO2 2013 - I murder Bobby boy
You have to fit Sledgehammer Games in there somewhere. Remember there are now 3 CoD developers.
MW3 is up in the air with the lawsuit intact and most IW people gone. 2011 will be Sledgehammer's COD debut I bet.
Well, I guess that kind of decision falls to Activision in the end.
Wouldn't be surprising, Certain Affinity worked on some of the World at Wat maps and DLC, and assisted on Black Ops multiplayer maps. http://www.certainaffinity....
i wonder if they are gonna do the same crap with mw2 and remake older maps from the previously released cod so waw maps remade?
They are probably gonna be $15 again....sigh But as long as they give us NEW maps, and a zombie map Ill be happy, I would love another zombie map.
Raven? Wow haven't heard that name for awhile, maybe cool....well if I own black ops.
they used to be good...
They still are.
Raven was once a great dev, with a very close relationship with id Software, whose tech the CoD engine is based on. I might even go as far to say that Raven is a higher quality dev than Treyarch.. or at least they once were. That said... I kinda thought I heard that Raven had closed its doors, recently?
Raven has lost quite a few of their employees after the commercial failure that was Singularity.
They now seem working on a 007 FPS game for PS3 and Xbox 360 to bring a 'Goldeneye' feel to it for the other consoles.
That was a long, long time ago. Raven is a shadow of it's former self. I believe the last truely great Raven game was Soldier of Fortune 2. I used to spend a lot time playing that game online.
This is ooollllllddddd news. When whats his name left Raven to work a Biowear after Singularity shipped he said it was because Activision had put on hold the development of a new AAA game to have Raven work on DLC for future CoD titles. I sure you could find the story somewhere. It was either on joystiq or kotaku.
