Infinity Ward, or at least, the shambling husk of Infinity Ward, is pretty much the Call of Duty developer whenever Treyarch's doing their thing in the background. Neversoft is the developer behind the Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero series - two franchises that are just about deader than "deader than disco" jokes. But with their powers combined they form... uh, Infinity Ward. Giant Bomb Tell me what thy lordly name is, ye who Activision has offed!' Quoth the raven, `Neversoft.' As the article mentions, the Neversoft team has worked on the Call of Duty franchise before, so this isn't entirely new territory for them. Honestly, the Infinity Ward team needs as many talented people as it can get its hands on, and it's not like Neversoft is too busy with its own franchises anyway. Perhaps there's a lesson to be learned there, about not overexposing a series until everyone is sick of it, but who knows? At this rate, how long will it be before the studio swallows the whole company? Activision Infinity Blizzard is a very workable name, after all.
