Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified for PS Vita – What Went Wrong?

Robert Workman (OpsHead): In 2012 Activision was in the thick of its Call of Duty franchise, riding high off the success of Black Ops II for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. The company was eager to give the PS Vita a shot, and called upon developer Nihilistic to create a separate Call of Duty experience for Vita owners. Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified was born.

The game released on November 13th, in time to catch the wave of Call of Duty madness. Activision even gave it a decent amount of promotion, with a live-action commercial featuring players going at it in online sessions.

The story is too old to be commented.

Unproven developers, small budget and no time to make it. Activision wanted a quick cash in and they got it, it somehow sold over a million copies. It's the only Vita game with a £45 price tag, too.

I would have quite liked a decent Call of duty on Vita

It wasn't the only Vita game with that price tag. Uncharted, P4D and DJ Max were the same price.

Idk why a dev with such lack of experience was given this and Resistance and a couple other games if I recall with their past basically being as bad as the work shown. They even changed their name because they got such a bad rep with their work.

If they had got the game right vita would have sold like hot cakes.
