One Year On: Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2

Twelve months ago, no-one suspected that Modern Warfare 2 might be the final Call of Duty title created under the stewardship of series creators Vince Zampella and Jason West.

Treyarch LIVES off of Infinity Ward's games and success and that is why IW, before being broken up, wanted the COD franchise all to themselves but Kotick didn't want a COD every two years, smh. Modern Warfare 2 is the last greatest COD from Activision and it's sad. This time Respawn with EA will be raking in the big bucks.

I love this article for reminding me how and why I love Infinity Ward(RIP). The developers behind any COD is the only important factor that matters behind an unbelievably great game and a disappointing one. IW was the greatest at multiplayer shooters and Respawn will carry that status-quo and brilliance that is Infinity Ward. This game is just pretty, pure and unbelievably fun,lol.

Treyarch did only 3 things right which is that kill-streaks don't get other kill-streaks + Wager matches + Zombies and that's it, smh.
