When a franchise is just too big for only three studios, there’s only one thing to do–add a fourth developer! Yup, former Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero developer Neversoft is now making a Call of Duty game. Other studios making Call of Duty games: Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer.
-Nick’s take: Besides for the part of Activision Blizzard that is Blizzard, seemingly every other studio that falls under the company’s umbrella is working on a different Call of Duty game. Infinity Ward just shipped Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 last year, while Treyarch is releasing Call of Duty: Black Ops II this year and another Call of Duty game called Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is being developed for the PlayStation Vita by an unnamed studio. That’s not even mentioning Sledgehammer Games, who assisted Infinity Ward with Modern Warfare 3‘s development and are probably making a Call of Duty game of their own. Overkill!
