    Personally I agree with that last statement on the digg article. Makes sense that they'd make their own company and just be done with the drama.

    Tbh, I don't really care about this anymore. If this were to happen to Treyarch though, I would worry more.

    I don't really care anymore. Infinity Ward effed up in my mind.

    How could you be more worried if it happened to Treyarch? Infinity Ward made one of the most successful video games. This is a huge blow to them. The future of Infinty Ward is in jeapardy right now, so we will see where they go from here.

    I thought that Treyarch was the one making the new COD anyway.

    Infinity Ward never wanted to make another Call of Duty anyway. The CREATORS of Call of Duty and Modern Warfare, the president and founders of the company, were fired by Activision because they approached them excitedly wanting to announce a new project to their team the following Monday. Of course Activision wanted them to make Modern Warfare 3 because they're greedy assholes and fired them on the spot. They're not even getting their royalty pay for Modern Warfare 2, and neither is anyone else who leaves Infinity Ward anytime soon (though I believe they're suing them as a result). Activision are blackmailing the staff to stay -- "Leave, and we don't pay you". It's a f***ing joke, and I hope Activision crash and burn (as unlikely as that is, unfortunately).

    I really hope Justin West and Vince Zampella (the heads of IW who were fired) start up their own company, hire back the majority of their staff and get funding from a company that has learned to treat their partners with respect (at the moment I'd hope for EA -- they can fund the huge projects they're used to working on, they're multi-platform and they aren't scared to take risks anymore).

    Call of Duty as you know it is dead. Treyarch are making the next title, and after that Activision will likely put a new team in charge of the franchise.
