It seems that the roster of companies lending a hand to the Call of Duty franchise has increased even more, with Activision piling even more of its development teams into the series – presumably to fill the void left behind when the series creators left.
NeverSoft’s biggest export comes in the form of the Tony Hawk’s series of games, and they haven’t gone into developing a FPS title before, so it is unclear what role they play in the Call of Duty development process, however they are probably offering assistance to current CoD studios Treyarch, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games.
“We have molded our team into a crack squad of eager developers ready to push the First Person Action genre in support of Activision’s Call of Duty franchise,” an official statement reads.
MCV pointed out that the internet sleuth Superannuation called out the fact NeverSoft were working on a sci-fi shooter back in February. He speculated that it could well be a Call of Duty game, which means they may in fact be doing an entirely new entry, or assisting whilst working on development of their own title.
